Why do we pray?
Prayer is one the greatest gifts we have been given — communion with God — speaking with God. When we pray we let Him know everything. We praise, we cry, we repent, we mourn, and we ask for His guidance. Even if we are not eloquent in our prayer, He listens. We know that God is always there.
Prayer is a very personal thing, a one to one time with the Father. But prayer is also a very collective thing. As part of the body of Christ one voice joins with a multitude of voices as a petition to our Lord.
Our church is serious about prayer. We pray not just for our own needs, but for those of others, as well. Just as Jesus bore our burdens on the cross, we bear the burdens of others, through prayer.
Our Prayer Chain is a network of individuals within our local church who have committed a portion of their day to prayer for our church and those in need. Prayer requests are not published on this website. Our Prayer Chain leaders are Maureen P, Vickie M, and Helen K. For your convenience you can send us your prayer request with our online form.
“Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praises. 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; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him.” James 5:13-15
