At Esk Valley we'll participate (in the day of prayer...) because it helps tie this new church plant in to the collective voice of the church as we cry out to God. We value being a part of a wider church family.
We also want to gather together in the evening specifically to call out to God in need. We need His power and grace! Also, we want to celebrate and praise him for his goodness to us and the way in which he is at work in our community.
