14 Days of Prayer

Prayer Prayer is simply conversation with God. It is as important to spiritual life as breathing is to human life. It is an amazing thing that the God of the universe invites as to know him and even to become his friend. Friendship is built through time together and through sharing with each other. God has revealed himself to us – through creation, through the sacred Scriptures, in the person of Jesus Christ, and through his Holy Spirit to those who seek him.

For fourteen days (beginning Monday, February 1st), we are encouraging everyone in our church community to invest in some extended time of prayer each day. Prayer is not so much about getting God to do what we want him to do as it is about us becoming the people he desires us to be and then positioning ourselves to love and serve him each day. Why don't you join us? For each day I will share some thoughts for your time of prayer each day. Spend time alone with God or gather with some family members or friends.

May these promises be an encouragement to you as you pray ...

“Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” [Isa 40:28-31. NLT]

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” [Proverbs 3:5-6. NLT]

“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” [James 5:16-17. NLT]

That is so awesome Mark!!! I'm so excited for the church! WOW!!! I can see God doing much more amazing things this year, than ever before, through His people. There is power in prayer :)

"Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my "house of prayer:" their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an "house of prayer for all people." - Isaiah 56:7

I'm glad you're back and looking forward to what is ahead.
