Do you have a prayer request? Then visit our brand new prayer request page and let us and others pray with you.
Why do we pray? We pray to be in communion with God; to raise our mind and heart to God in thanksgiving; to praise His glory and to request good things from God.
Can’t we simply pray for ourselves? Yes and you’re encouraged to do so but James 5:16 states we must also pray for one another and that the fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful. With this in mind, we want to join you in your prayers.
