WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US IN PRAYER!

The Word of God says:

Matthew 18:19-20

 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”


1 Timothy 2:1-2

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 



Quote on Prayer:

Bear up the hand that hang down,

by faith and pray; support the tottering knees. Have you any days of fasting and prayer? Storm the throne of grace and persevere therein, and mercy will come down.  ( John Wesley )
