In Luke 11:1 Jesus says to His disciples, “Lord, Teach us to Pray…”. God has a wonderful plan by which the church can have world-wide influence. This dynamic ministry is prayer. It’s obvious in Scripture that the Lord has instructed us to pray and there are many commands given to us concerning prayer:
“Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up” (Luke 18:1); “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints” (Ephesians 6:18)
One great reason for us to pray as a church is the simple need we all have to know God. It is through prayer that we express to the Lord our love for Him, our faith in Him, our worship of Him, and our surrender to Him. If for no other reason, the desire for intimacy with Christ ought to bring us daily to our knees.
We would love to pray for you and with you about the needs in your life.
