The denomination does not restrict the service to a specific format. It is one of the most significant operations in the organization to fulfill the Great Commission the Lord has given. Even Jesus himself said, "If I don’t do the works of my Father, don’t believe me."

WHEREAS God has created us, declared His desire for fellowship with us, and has offered us the awesome privilege of contin-ually abiding in His presence through the practice of prayer in the name of His Son Jesus; and WHEREAS our Lord and Savior taught us to pray, commanded us to pray, and gave us His own example of a powerful life of daily prayer; and WHEREAS the great men and women of God throughout history have, without exception, been faithful in fervent prayer; and WHEREAS the Church of God was born in prayer and has expanded throughout the world in obedience to our Lord and in the strength of prayer; and WHEREAS we have experienced great revival only where our peo- ple have invested themselves in earnest prayer; and WHEREAS God has always manifested Himself to save, to heal, to sanctify, and deliver; to baptize in His Spirit, and has called His people into ministry in those times and places of great prayer; and WHEREAS our world is in desperate trouble, and can only be helped by the message of truth, confirmed by signs following through the ministry of God’s anointed servants, in the power of prayer; THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that we, the people of the Church of God, do solemnly commit to a renewed emphasis to spend time before God our Father in daily devotion to Him, and that we will stand in the gap and make up the hedge as intercessors for those in need.
