WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRAYER

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Grace Fellowship Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, we have altar prayer. Each Wednesday at 6:30 PM, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.  Every Saturday at 7 PM, Grace Fellowship will be open for anyone wishing to come and pray.

 

 “BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING, BUT IN EVERYTHING BY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION WITH THANKSGIVING LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE KNOWN TO GOD.”   PHILIPPIANS 4:6

 

TWO OF THE GREATEST GIFTS GOD HAS GIVEN TO MAN ARE THE HOLY BIBLE, HIS WRITTEN MESSAGE TO US, AND THE PRIVILEGE OF PRAYER, AN INTIMATE COMMUNION THAT REVEALS HIS HEART AND OURS.  IT IS THROUGH PRAYER THAT WE CONNECT WITH GOD.

 

WHY PRAY?

  • God desires an intimate relationship and communication with us.
  • Prayer is the gateway to know and love God and to partner with Him in His purposes.
  • Jesus Christ taught that we ought always to pray. (Luke 18:1)
  • When we intercede, we become prayer partners with Christ who is always interceding before the Father.
  • God longs to meet our needs to the point of overflowing.
  • Prayer transfers burdens from our shoulders to His and upholds others before Him.
  • Answered prayer builds our faith and encourages us to pray more.

Prayer is the heart and soul of every successful relationship with God – it’s absolutely crucial to every area of a believer’s life. Along with personal prayer-life, we are also called to pray or each other (James 5:16). We have a group of prayer “warriors” who have committed to pray for the people of Grace Fellowship and their individual requests.  Call any deacon if you have a prayer request.
