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).

At 12-13 I stepped on the bag and fell backward. I said “oh-uh” closed my eyes. heared
