Prayer

"Prayer should not be regarded as a duty which must be performed,
but rather as a privilege to be enjoyed, a rare delight that is always revealing some new beauty."
- E.M. Bounds

"Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work."
- Oswald Chambers.

What is Prayer?

  • Prayer is simply spending time with God, talking, and listening to Him like you would another person. Jesus calls us His friend! (John 15:15)
  • The difference, of course, is that God is our creator, so we also pray to worship and thank God, and to depend on Him for our direction and provision. (Psalm 62:5-8)
  • It is easy to build prayer into something that needs to sound good, but God sees the heart. He wants us to worship Him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24)
  • Don’t worry about what it sounds like. In fact, the “better” you sound, the more likely you aren’t praying for the right reasons. (Matthew 6:5) Just dive in, and share your heart with God!

Prayer at Grace Church

Prayer is the key ingredient to a healthy, Christ-led church, and our desire is to be a praying church. This means that each of us, though at different stages of our journey, choose to spend time with Jesus and grow in our relationship with Him. This happens on our own, as families, and when we are together as a congregation. Here are some opportunities to get involved:
