Prayer is biblical. God wants to hear your petitions. Over and over in scripture we are informed that prayer is fundamental to growing in faith.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, that he came to earth and was born of the virgin Mary. He walked the earth sinless and blameless, eventually offering himself as the perfect lamb.
Having a confidential place to share your prayer requests is important. Some of our most painful, tender, vulnerable issues are shared in prayer requests and we respect your privacy and confidentiality. You need not worry that what you share will be shared at the church social or over coffee with another person. We are here to facilitate your relationship with God and maintaining the sacredness of that space is of our utmost responsibility.
Prayer is available to all of us. Yet, have you ever noticed that some people have their prayers break through more frequently than others. Well, we believe fully that our prayers are in God's lap and he hears our cry. We have many, many personal instances of our prayers being answered in ways uniminaginable.
1 JOHN 5:14-15
14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise.
Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
9 This, then, is how you should pray: “ ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’
