We believe in the power of prayer simply because we believe in the power of the God we pray to. Prayer is God’s gift to us, initiated and started by God himself which the Holy Spirit helps us to do. It is one of the most powerful and privileged things available to us as followers of Jesus.
Prayer is integral to how we live out our faith and demonstrate it in word and deed. Through prayer we connect with the heart of God and He deposits His words, confidence, supernatural empowerment into our lives, so we can make the most of every opportunity.
