Prayer groups

Why is prayer important?


The simple answer is . . . we can’t do it on our own. We need God and each other. Woven throughout the Bible we find an invitation to be in relationship with God and to fellowship with others. Prayer is not only a conversation with God, but it is communion with God.


Along with entering the presence of God through prayer, we also have God’s full and loving attention. We have open access to the ear of our Father, and this is critically important in our life of faith. God desires for us to spend time in     prayer. We ask for guidance, and God provides the answer. Prayer 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.
