Prayer and Prayer Request
"The deeper our faith, the stronger our hope, the greater our desire, the larger will be our capacity to receive the gift, which is very great indeed. .... The more fervent the desire, the more worthy will be its fruits. When the Apostle tells us: Pray without ceasing (1 Thes 5:16), he means this: Desire unceasingly that life of happiness which is nothing if not eternal, and ask it of him alone who is able to give it."
- St. Augustine on Prayer (Letter 130)
How do we share the love of Jesus? Richard Foster writes, “Intercession is a way of loving others.” Praying for one another is surely a powerful way to live into and share the love of Jesus. There are many ways of caring for one another but we believe intercessory prayer is the most important of all.
We invite you to share your prayer needs knowing that this faith community will gladly lift them up. In the end, you shall know the peace (Shalom) of God.
