Thought it was about time to get a new picture for the featured image. This marks our 4th year having community prayer.
This post is updated, sometimes daily, please check-in for updates, answered prayers, and for continued prayer over the requests. If you would like a request to be ongoing, let me know. Ongoing requests will stay up for at least 6 months. Thank you!
Let’s work together on prayer by praying for each other and lifting up our needs.
Why We Need To Pray– We are commanded to pray. We need to lift up our struggles, sins, praise the Lord for all He has done in our lives, we need to pray for others, their struggles, that their eyes be opened to the truth of Jesus Christ, the Gospel message. We need to pray about the world around us, and the hardships others are facing. Prayer draws us closer to Christ. Prayer and reading God’s word go hand in hand. Prayer is NEVER taught to be in silence or emptying the mind. Prayer is full of words. We do not communicate in silence.
PRAISE REPORTS! – If the Lord has answered prayer let me know 🙂

Scripture To Memorize/Meditate On – (ESV) John 16:07-08, “Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment.”
