Thoughts on and life experience with Prayer.
Prayer is powerful. The power of joy and praise; the power to bear all things and endure all things through Christ who gives us strength.
Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Psalm 107:28-30 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Prayer is important. Prayer keeps us focused on communication with our God and Savior. Prayer deepens our relationship, steers and anchors our walk with Jesus.
Prayer is not monologue, but dialogue. Gods voice in response to mine is its most essential part. ~ Andrew Murray
Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees. ~ Corrie Ten Boom

Prayer is necessary.
Prayer is an effort of will. ~ Oswald Chambers
Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
Prayer makes a difference for those who are praying and for those we pray for.
James 5:14-16 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”
Prayer is nurturing and sustaining, prayer is reviving and uplifting, prayer is a lifeline.
Romans 8:26 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.
Philippians 1:19 For I know that through your prayers and God’s provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance.
Psalms 42:8 By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life.
Trinity is a church of people who trust in and practice prayer. I pray if you’re not already practicing and trusting in prayer, you’ll come join us.
