Here at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church we take prayer seriously. We pray with purpose and by God’s design. So, if you are in need of prayer, allow us the opportunity to intercede in prayer for you or a loved one.
What is Prayer?
Prayer is an interchange of love between the Father and His child. That desire you feel to pray is His love drawing you to delight in Him. You only need to respond.
For Christians, prayer (proseuche in Greek) is “communion with God.” It is the medium of divine revelation. Through prayer, we actually experience relationship with God. The quality of our prayer life then determines the quality of our relationship with God.
Prayer Begins With “A Purpose”
When you come to God, know in your heart what you are going to pray about. As Jesus, who has said:
“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
– Psalm 37:4
“Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you.”
– Matthew 7:7
Pray Without Ceasing
The Scriptures remind us to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) and “to give all things to God in prayer” (Philippians 4:6).
