1 Thes 5:17 “Pray continually.”
Jesus spent regular time in prayer. He shows us the importance of praying on your own before God to deepen your relationship with Him and to glorify Him; praying with others in agreement and trusting Him for a response to prayer for a certain need or situation; and praying for others and believing in Him to intervene according to His will. Jesus teaches us to be persistent in prayer and to learn to be still and to wait on God. It is through prayer that we can move the heart of our Father God.
The Prayer Ministry is a made up of a team of individuals who reach out to the congregation, our community, our city, our country and our continent through corporate and intercessory prayer.
Through prayer, God is glorified, we are sanctified and the church is edified. Our communion with God opens the door for a meaningful relationship with Him and the people around us.
We are a team of individuals that form part of the church’s prayer chain. When there is a need, a special circumstance, an upcoming event in the church or elsewhere, a disaster or when things don’t seem to be falling into place, we take it before the Lord in prayer.
