Join us for "Lord, Teach Us to Pray!"
Wednesday evenings, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
What is "Lord, Teach us to Pray!"? It's a multigenerational prayer gathering. Each week there's a short time of teaching, followed by a guided prayer time for people of all ages (including kids and young adults) and for people at all levels of experience with prayer. There's no reason for you to feel intimidated; we're all learning how to pray together.
Our Method: We break into groups. The prayer leader suggests prayer topics and verses that provide a prayer focus. After praying through each topic, we move to the next one. We encourage each person to remember the “B’s” of praying together in a group:
- Be Brief (short, focused prayers)
- Be Bold (pray in faith)
- Be Biblical (plead the promises of Scripture)
- Build (listen to each other; build on each other's prayers)
- Burden (be sensitive to the burden God places on your heart)
- Breakthrough (don’t move on too quickly; pray for the breakthrough)
- Be Careful (don’t break confidences)
Come join us as we ask the Lord to “Teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1) and find joy in the house of prayer (Isaiah 56:7)!
National Day of Prayer
Our special emphasis on Wednesday, May 1, will be on the National Day of Prayer. We'll focus especially on praying for our country. Please join the National Day of Prayer prayer observance at Chapel in the Pines, on Thursday, May 2, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. (More info here.)
"This, then, is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.'' — Matthew 6:9–13
