We commit ourselves to making prayer the highest priority of the church demonstrated by:
- Every local church becoming a house of prayer for all nations.
- Emphasizing communication with God as the highest privilege and greatest responsibility of every member.
- Modeling by all church leadership of an active and effective prayer life.
- Uniting with other believers in corporate and intercessory prayer.
What Does the Bible Say About Prayer?
The Bible has a lot to say about prayer. The first mention of prayer is found in Genesis, chapter 4.
And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the name of the LORD.
Why Should I Pray?
Prayer Develops Our Relationship with God. If we never speak to our spouse or never listen to anything our spouse might have to say to us, our marriage relationship will quickly deteriorate. It is the same way with God.
Prayer—communicating with God, helps us grow closer and more intimately connected with God.
What If I Don't Know How to Pray?
The Holy Spirit will help you in prayer when you don't know how to pray.
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.
