Connecting people to Christ through prayer
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
We believe that there is power in prayer, power in the name of JESUS, and power in the word of God. Our purpose is to intercede on behalf of others as the Spirit of God leads us. Praying for the local body of Christ, our Pastor, homes, communities, and salvation for the lost. Prayer is a way of inviting God to join you in life’s struggles. Prayer creates a safe space to process your thoughts and feelings. God wants us to lean on Him in every situation, and He wants to change the world through us.
We are encouraged to intercede or pray for one another. It is the Lord's intention that the members of the Body of Christ plea for His mercy, His healing, and the outpouring of His Holy Spirit on behalf of others and trusting completely in His mercy. Jesus closed the gap between us and God when He died on the cross. Because of Jesus’ mediation, we intercede in prayer on behalf of others, asking God to grant their requests according to His will.
