In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
Romans 8:26-27

Prayer is personal. Prayer is powerful.  Prayer works in ways we can’t even imagine.  Through this sacred practice, we quiet our hearts to hear God’s voice and intentions.  As we pray, we help to bring comfort and peace to those in need, and find our lives enriched as we intercede in behalf of others.

It is our hope that every person in the congregation will become closer to God through one of our prayer opportunities.
