Join us every Wednesday for Prayer Group from 5pm-6pm and Bible Study from 6pm-7pm
A prayer group is a group of people that meet to pray together. These groups gather outside of the congregation’s regular worship service to pray for perceived needs, sometimes within the congregation, sometimes within their families, jobs, homes, relationships, community, state or country at large. However, these groups often pray also for the world around them, including people who do not share their beliefs.
Sometimes you hear someone say,”We’ve done all we can.The only thing we can do now is pray.” Prayer really should be our first resort rather than our last resort.
Jesus gave us the Lord’s Prayer,as a model prayer and Jesus himselfoften went off to pray, setting an examplefor us to do the same. In Matthew 14:23, it says,“And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray:and when the evening was come, He was there alone.” (KJV)
If Jesus needed to go off and pray, how much more do we need to? Praying should not be something we do out of duty and routine. Prayer is talking and listening to our loving, all knowing, heavenly Father. The book of James tells us to pray for wisdom when we don’t know what to do (James 1:5).
The Power of Prayer
- Philippians 4:6-7, prayer is connected with receiving God’s peace.
- Ephesians 6:18, prayer is a very important part of battling the forces of evil.
- I Timothy 2:1-2, we are also told to pray for those in Authority over us.
Prayer shows our dependence on God, His power and His wisdom. Prayer is powerful and so important.
“Seven days without prayer, makes one weak.”
