WORSHIP GOD!  When you come to worship on Sunday, you should know all of the songs and have them deep in your heart.  Did you know that Martin Luther required his whole church to attend choir practice?  He did this so that on Sunday mornings, the whole congregation could sing out to the Lord.  We encourage you to be familiar with the worship songs at Summit.  You can find a link to all of the songs we sing and new ones we will be learning at www.summitchurch.us/Worship.  We also put a list of the songs we will be singing the next  Sunday on Facebook every Wednesday afternoon.

PRAYER

"I used to ask God to help me. Then I asked if I might help Him. 
I ended up by asking Him to do his work through me."
– James Hudson Taylor

"God does nothing but by prayer, and everything with it."
– John Wesley

"God shapes the world by prayer. The prayers of God's saints are the capital stock of heaven by which God carries on 
His great work upon earth." – E.M. Bounds

"To pray is to cast off your burdens, it is to tear away your rags, it is to shake off your diseases, it is to be filled with spiritual vigor, it is to reach the highest point of Christian health." – C.H. Spurgeon

"There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer." – A.T. Pierson

"Faith in a prayer-hearing God will make a prayer-loving Christian."
– Andrew Murray

"A man may study because his brain is hungry for knowledge, 
even Bible knowledge. But he prays because 
his soul is hungry for God." – Leonard Ravenhill

"Get into the habit of dealing with God about everything. Unless in the first waking moment of the day you learn to fling the door wide back and let God in, you will work on a wrong level all day; but swing the door wide open and pray to your Father in secret, and every public thing will be stamped with the presence of God."
– Oswald Chambers

"We are not told that Jesus ever taught His disciples how to preach; but He taught them how to pray. – D.L. Moody

"God will do nothing on earth except in answer to believing prayer."
– John Wesley

"Prayer will become effective when we stop using it as a substitute for obedience." – A.W. Tozer
