“One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray…” Luke 11:1, NIV
Prayer is integral to our life as a community of believers. We were created for intimacy with God; prayer is central to developing this intimacy. Prayer provides us with the opportunity to affect God’s work in the world. Prayer also creates a spirit of openness in our lives that allows God to transform us into vibrant, Christ-oriented people. Prayer is the most important work we can do to prepare ourselves- individually and corporately – for this transformational work of God. It’s for these reasons that we offer many opportunities for you to engage in the ministry of prayer.
Prayer groups meet in different places and at different times during the week. A group meets for prayer on Wednesday evening (6:30) for the specific purpose of prayer.
Because the need for prayer arises between times when we are gathered together, our prayer chains help us communicate concerns for prayer in unusual or emergent situations. If you are interested in being a part of a prayer chain please contact Pastor Cindy Oden.
Through the influence of the 24/7 prayer movement, we have begun hosting prayer events that have revolutionized our prayer lives and our journeys with Christ. The rhythm of our congregational life now
involves hosting a 3-week, 24/7 prayer event the first three weeks of November. We also host shorter (48-hour) prayer events for specific purposes throughout the year. Our prayer room is very interactive and is available even when we are not engaged in a specific prayer event.
We are very excited about all that God is doing among us through prayer. We invite you to join us in this amazing journey of learning and experiencing intimacy with God and with each other.
