Prayer Ministry

Rejoice always. Pray Continually.

Prayer is the communication, spoken or unspoken, that builds the relationship between ourselves and God.

Many of us find prayer difficult.  We often feel inadequate before God and we don’t know “what to say.”  The good news for us is that often prayer involves as much listening as it does speaking.  Too often, we overcomplicate prayer.  What God really wants is for us to be fully open with God: that’s prayer.  In order for us to pray continually, we must be open to God’s leading.

For those of us who struggle with prayer, it often helps to be intentional about setting aside time to be with God.  This time of stillness, apart from the busyness of our lives, can then affect the rest of what we do.

Below you will find a number of resources to help you set aside time to be in conversation with God.

Let’s Pray

To pray is to let Jesus come into our hearts.  It is Jesus who moves us to pray.  He knocks.  Thereby he makes known his desire to come into us.  Our prayers are always the result of Jesus knocking at our heart’s doors. To pray is nothing more involved than to let Jesus into our needs.

 Revelation  3:20  Look I have been standing at the door and I am constantly knocking.  If anyone hears Me calling him and opens the door, I will come in and fellowship with him and he with Me.
