Praying Together

God calls us to pray and invites us to respond.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 
Philippians 4:6-7

Our Bible is rich with prayers, hymns and praises to God. We read often in the Gospels that Jesus would go off to pray, modeling to us how God wants us to communicate. He provided much guidance about how and for what we are to pray.

Why We Pray

God welcomes and yearns for our communication and prayers. Setting aside time for daily prayer will bless and enrich your life in innumerable ways. Like all good communication, prayer involves both speaking to God and listening for responses. These may come in the form of thoughts, spiritual feelings, scripture passages or through the words and actions of those around us. Prayer helps us to gain an understanding of God’s loving nature. By listening, we can better understand God’s purpose and direction for our lives. God is with us, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20). Jesus tells us to ask and we will receive and our joy will be complete (John 16:24).

Forms of Prayer

God loves for us to be in prayer and communion. There are numerous forms of prayer that offer different ways to pray. Common themes or types of prayer include petitions where we ask God for something, confession where we admit our sins to God and seek forgiveness, intercessions where we pray for others, and praises and thanksgiving where we thank God for the many blessings God provides.
