Prayer

We must see prayer as our main work, the real work. And, it is our greatest privilege. - Jeff Wells  

Jesus' prayer life was so exemplary that his disciples wanted to emulate it.   We desire to become a church where prayer is seen as the real work.  We desire to be known as a House of Prayer that people throughout the community come to for prayer when they have special needs.
We desire to become a church family who sees themselves as intercessors, who are quick to pray for others.

We pray first to bring God glory.  We pray first to invite his kingdom and will to supercede our own, trusting that he will provide for our every need and grant us the forgiveness we deserve and the ability to forgive those that have wronged us.  We pray continually as an act of worship to receive God's love for us and invite God's reign in our life.  There is power in prayer.  We invite you to pray with us and welcome the opportunity to pray with you.

How can we pray for you?

Frequently Asked Questions About Prayer

 

  • How do we pray?

    We ask. We do not command. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. -Matthew 7:7-8

    We call. Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you create and hidden things that you have not known.-Jeremiah 33:3 And the Lord came and stood, calling as at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel said, Speak, for your servant hears.-1 Samuel 3:10

    Lay our requests before the Lord. O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch. -Psalm 5:3

    In solitude. And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed. -Mark 1:35

    In community. And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.-Acts 2:42

    In the Spirit. Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.-Eph 6:18. Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groaning too deep for words. -Romans 8:26

    In humility. Because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before God when you heard his words against this place and its inhabitants, and you have humbled yourself before me and have torn your clothes and wept before me, I also have heard you, declares the Lord. -2 Chron 34:27

    We pray in faith. Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. -Heb. 11:1 For then you will delight yourself in the Almighty and lift up your face to God. You will make your prayer to him, and he will hear you, and you will pay your vows. -Job 22:26-27

    Laying on of hands. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. -James 5:14

  • Why do we pray?

    Jesus modeled it. But he would withdraw to desolate places and pray.  -Luke 5:16

    Out of obedience. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. -Romans 12:12. Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. -Col 4:2

    To behold the beauty of the Lord. One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. -Ps 27:4

    To be filled with the Holy Spirit. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. -Romans 15:15

    To allow God’s peace to guard our heart and mind. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Phil 4:6-7

    To guard against temptation. Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. -Matt. 26:41

    To know the thoughts of God. But, as it is written,“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined,what God has prepared for those who love him” these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person's thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.  -1 Corin 2:9-12

  • When do we pray?

    Continually Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. -1 Thess 5:16-18

    Constantly All these with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer. -Acts 1:14a Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.  -Rom 12:12

    Always Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints. -Eph 6:18

    In the day of trouble In the day of my trouble I call upon you, for you answer me.  -Ps 86:7

    In Suffering Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray.  Is anyone cheerful?  Let him sing praise.  -James 5:13
