If the Bible is like spiritual ‘food’, praying is the ‘oxygen’!
“Most of all, friends, always rejoice in the Lord! I never tire of saying it: Rejoice! Keep your gentle nature so that all people will know what it looks like to walk in His footsteps. The Lord is ever present with us. Don’t be anxious about things; instead, pray. Pray about everything. He longs to hear your requests, so talk to God about your needs and be thankful for what has come. And know that the peace of God (a peace that is beyond any and all of our human understanding) will stand watch over your hearts and minds in Jesus, the Anointed One.”
From Paul’s Letter to the Philippians Chapter 4 ( Living Bible)
We are using the weekly prayer points from PCI. We may also add more local prayer topics as appropriate.
Connecting with God through prayer is one of the extrordinary joys and privileges of being a Christian believer, but our calling to enjoy a prayer relationship with God goes far beyond our individual prayer lives -we are called to pray together. If you live in the area or are connected with us in some way, be assured that there are people in our church who pray for you regularly. We particularly remember those who are going through times of illness, depression, loss and despair. We also give thanks to God for all the blessings that our community enjoys and, more than ever in these desperately troubled times, we pray for those caught up in the terrible global conflicts and in the traps of poverty, oppression and disease.
