Most of us think prayer is asking God for something. Usually we consider prayer to be a matter of some significance since it is the way frail, limited and imperfect human beings call on the all-powerful, infinite and perfect God. Prayer is that – as well as many other things.

 

prayer handsPrayer, quite simply, is communication. It’s the privileged exchange we share with God the Father, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. In prayer we converse with God; we pour out our hearts to Him; offer up our praise to Him. We acknowledge Him as Lord of our lives, and we thank Him for sending His Son Jesus Christ to be our Savior. And as His children we ask of Him. Also, we listen to Him in meditation and Bible reading.

 

How do you define prayer?  You don’t need to. You, the one praying, decide what, why, where, when, and how to pray. If you need our pastor to meet or pray with you call 562-429-5967.

LORD’S PRAYER    Matthew 6:9-13; Luke 11:2-4; John 1:29

Lord, remember us in Your kingdom and teach us to pray:

Our Father in heaven, holy be Your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us in the time of trial and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are Yours, now and forever. Amen.
