Prayer is a humble recognition of the reality Jesus taught in John 15:5—“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” As a church, we must be convinced of our desperate dependence on God, and therefore, the necessity of prayer and the resulting power of trusting in His word. Our desire is that as a church we would be found as a praying people—prayer, not as something we do, but characteristic of who we are. So, how can we be praying for you?
“Believer, you have a mighty engine in your hand, use it well, use it constantly, use it with faith, and you shall surely be a benefactor to your brethren. When you have the King's ear, speak to him for the suffering members of his body. When you are favoured to draw very near to his throne, and the King says to you, “Ask, and I will give you whatever you ask,” let your petitions be not for yourself alone, but for the many who need his aid.”
