Send a prayer request directly to Pastor.
Prayer is central to who we are as people. It is the expelling of our thoughts and feelings with a hope that someone who cares for us is near. It is often how we hear for the first time what we are truly feeling deep inside.
The community of Grace believes in the power of prayer. It isn't that prayer changes God's mind, it is that prayer changes us and puts in God's hands that which we cry out for.
In his book, The Celebration of Discipline, Richard Foster says that we should ask in prayer the way a child might ask her daddy for lunch. It is not so much a question of if she is going to be fed - it is a stating of her wishes to someone who smiles for her. What father would say no to his little child asking for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Why do we expect differently from God? This is exactly how Jesus tells us to pray (Matthew 7:7-11).
The people of Grace would love to pray with you and for you. Whether you are praying for healing or direction, whether you want to offer thanks for something or ask God why things didn't turn out the way you feel they should have, we will pray with you. If you feel you don't have the words to pray, or you feel like your prayers are just bouncing off the ceiling, let us say the prayers for you.
We believe that God works miracles. We believe in the power of prayer.
