Prayer

Our vision is to see the body of Christ fully alive and walking in the grace and truth of God’s Word. Following the example of Jesus, we desire to continually do God’s will and regularly pray to him.

As we seek the Father and dwell in His presence, our hearts become one with his. Our delight is in him, and we become the aroma of Christ and the fragrance of the knowledge of him to those around us (II Corinthians 2:14).

The Bible instructs us to put on and take up our offensive and defensive weapons, stand firm, pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests and keep on praying for all the saints (Ephesians 6). 

We are urged to pray for our leaders (I Timothy 2:1); to pray without ceasing (I Thessalonians 5:17); to knock, seek and ask (Matthew 7:7); to present our requests to God through prayer (Philippians 4:6); to devote ourselves to prayer (Colossians 4:2); and to pray in faith (James 5:15).

Isaiah 35:1-6 King James Version (KJV)
35 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.
3 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
King James Version (KJV)

A couple of months ago you prayed for a 7th grader with cancer in ICU who was bleeding from multiple orifices. She went home to the Lord this morning. Please pray for her mom who has seen her daughter through the many treatments, resulting damage to her organs, dialysis, remissions, and returns of cancer since 2nd grade. I’ve never met either one. Let the Lord lead you in interceding. Thank you!

Friend travelled through divorce.  What organizations are available to help with the restructuring of their life that would address legal, mental, emotional, and spiritual issues?  Hopefully from a Biblical world-view.  We’ve tried to help, but this is too complicated for ordinary people (or at least us) to help with.  Churches appear to be limited especially when all four of these issues converge.
