God has a global family of affection He calls a “house of prayer” (Isaiah 56:7). Every believer is a unique “living stone” in the house. Prayer is a way we communicate with God in our love relationship with him that flows out of the house to the community around us.

Uniting in Prayer

Dear Lord, thank you for the power of your Spirit at work in our nation today. As followers of Jesus, continue to use us as vessels of salvation, healing and restoration in the lives of people you put on our path. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.

Let’s also pray for:

  • Good Friday and Easter services at our campuses (John 11:25).

  • Deeper revelation of Jesus in light of the Passover story (Exodus 12).

  • Marriages and families in need of forgiveness and restoration (Colossians 1:13-14).

  • Ways to reach out to our friends and neighbors with God’s love (1 John 4:7).

Getting Equipped

We’re here to help you grow in prayer and learn to equip others.

Every believer is a living stone in God’s house of prayer. “Teach Us to Pray” is for groups, families, or friends who want to discover their unique purpose in prayer, want to overcome common obstacles to a thriving prayer life, and want to learn to hear God’s voice. In this 6-session interactive experience, you’ll grow together and help others grow in prayer too.

Praying as a Family

God made each of your kids to be unique. They will relate to God differently depending on things like interests, personality, spiritual gifts and life experiences. Take some time as a family this month to discuss these questions:

  1. What is your favorite way to talk with God?
  2. When is the last time you knew God answered a prayer or was at work in our family?
  3. When it’s hard to pray or hear from God, why do you think that is?
  4. How can our family best support the different ways God made us to pray?

If your family could use some practical help in developing a thriving prayer life, click on the button below to get started.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. What was Jesus referring to when he said this to his followers? He was talking about a time when people would kill Christians thinking they’re doing a service for God. It would be a time of sin running rampant in the world. A time of unbelief, and a

There’s a trustworthy source of peace we can bank on in the days ahead. We live in uncertain times.

If inflation, economic instability or supply chain issues have not touched your life in the past three years,

Did he get up each morning wondering if that would be the day? Hope deferred makes the heart sick. And longing fulfilled is like a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12). We all know what it feels like to wait for a promise to be fulfilled. Some are small, such as when our spouse says, “I promise to pick up the groceries on
