Prayer groups

Why is prayer important?

 

The simple answer is . . . we can’t do it on our own. Woven throughout the Bible from the times of Adam and Eve to the New Testament apostles, we find an invitation to be  in relationship with God. Prayer is not only a conversation with God, but it is communion with God.

 

Along with entering into the presence of God through prayer, we also have God’s full and loving attention. We have open access to the ear of God, and this is critically important in our life of faith. God desires us to spend time in prayer. We ask for guidance, and God delivers the answer. It is taking the time to know God and to be renewed in God’s divine presence. God’s Holy Spirit moves in, around and through us in response to our prayers. Prayer is a means of growing in faith and dependence on God and learning to trust in God’s answers and provisions.

 

Knowing the importance and value of prayer, and realizing that a variety of days and times makes it possible and easier for people to participate, we offer numerous opportunities for you to join with others in prayer.
