PRAYING FROM THE FRONTIER OF FAITH
As Christians we often take for granted the privilege we share to pray to our loving God no matter what is happening in our lives. We forget that Jesus commanded us to pray without ceasing. Far too often we move through our busy schedules and leave the prayer for those times of emergencies or deep need. When we pray this way, we are ignoring our deep need for guidance and direction in everything we do. We also ignore the need that others have for our prayers.
Both Steve and Prayer Ministry encourage you to make time to pray regularly. Remember that time spent with God in prayer is time well spent.
Grace and peace,
