Prayer & Care

Power of Prayer

Ever heard someone say, “all we can do now is pray?” Statements like this reveal how most people think about prayer. It’s a last resort, a last ditch effort. The Bible says prayer is a direct line of communication between us and God. So as Christians, we must learn to become people of prayer.

Month of Prayer

During the month of August, we are asking everyone to join us in a focused time of prayer, as we will be praying for our World, Communities, and the Church.
