Memorial Presbyterian Church

CHEROKEE, IOWA

Welcome to the Memorial Presbyterian Church website. I am glad you have chosen to spend some time looking around, discovering our church family. As I describe Memorial Presbyterian church to people, I use words like ‘Reform Minded’ and a ‘close family.’

We are a group of people committed to following Jesus. That means we worship Him with love and joy. That means we encourage living out our faith in the church and throughout our life. That means we love people outside the church through generosity, invitation, and compassion.

We envision that all people will feel loved and welcomed at Memorial Presbyterian Church. And once here, we pray that people will meet God and as a result of meeting God, give their lives to Jesus Christ. We want that for you. Come as you are. Check us out, but more importantly, seek the truth of God that can only be known when one knows Jesus.

While you are browsing our website, you will learn about our programs and you will get a small portion of who we are, but only a portion. To fully understand us, come to a worship service, get involved in our Wednesday night Logos program, and feel the up-close, in-person fellowship that comes when people share time together with the Holy Spirit present. Enjoy the website, then come.

We’d love to meet you and know you!

Sincerely,
Pastor Eric Wright

The Bible points to the how of prayer. It says, “Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our maker. (Ps. 95:6).

How much more should we study the Word to see how our posture might intensify our praying?

Bowing. To bow, for example, is a physical expression of honor and allegiance. The action of bowing is associated with worship.

Many other biblical references speak of dropping to our knees in prayer. Solomon’s monumental prayer at the dedication of the temple was given while he “knelt down in front of the entire congregation of Israel” (2 Chron. 6:13).

Daniel, even at the risk of death for defying the king’s order against praying to anyone other than the king himself, “continued kneeling on his knees three times a day” at the open window of his home, “praying and giving thanks before his God” (Dan. 6:10)

Lying prostate. Sometimes bowing our heads or bowing on our knees still doesn’t quite reflect the devotion we intend. When Ezra the priest gave an all-morning, public reading of the law to the returned exiles in Jerusalem, “they bowed low and worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground” (Neh. 8:6). Jesus, agonizing in the Garden of Gethsemane before his torture and death, “fell on His face and prayed” (Matt. 26:39).

Please pray this prayer today, “Lord, take all of me-my hands, my eyes, my feet, my voice. Use all of these gifts You’ve given me so they return to You as clear expressions of my worship, love, devotion, and submission. I so easily lose sight of You, going through the motions of religion. Lord, turn even my posture of prayer into a means of steadying my wandering mind and opening my ears to Your voice.
