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).

My friend Olympia is an atheist and has been through a lot of trauma while growing up. She has major anxiety and depression. She lost hope that God exist when she was a little girl. After talking to one of her new friends a few months ago she became interested in reading the bible but soon after a few weeks later she lost the motivation. She needs help finding God and healing.

Just went to my neurologist for my seizures I’m having over 100 seizures a day.  I’m trying to figure out why God won’t help, has he forgotten me? I’m starting to feel like this will never go away. I’m starting to lose faith, Because the seizures are getting worse. I feel defeated my depression is also not helping the situation, I cry everyday sometimes for hours. There’s just no end.
