Prayer is the connection between our hearts and the heart of God. What a privilege — to know that we can bring ourselves to Him and know that He loves and accepts us, listens to us, and responds with His perfect wisdom to our prayers. All the way through Scripture we are called to pray.
Moses wrote, “When we cried out to the Lord, He heard our voice” Numbers 20:16
King David wrote, “With us is the Lord our God, to help us and to fight our battles” II Chronicles 32:8
Jesus said, "'My house will be called a house of prayer,'” Matthew 21:13
Paul wrote, “Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints” Ephesians 6:18
“Pray continually…” I Thessalonians 5:17
We invite you into this most dynamic part of our Christian experience and the core life of our church. Here’s how you can become involved right now:
— Go to encounterlife.org and hit the PRAYER button on our home page. You’ll be able to leave a prayer request online, or one that goes to our staff and elder board only. If you have an urgent need, please check the box “staff & elders only” so that it will be emailed to us immediately. Or, you can use the Prayer Cards available in the seat pockets during any of our weekend ENCOUNTER services. Just fill out the card and place it in the offering and let us know how we can be praying for you.
— At our online prayer site you can also read the requests that have been left by others and pray for those who have submitted a request.
— Join us in the auditorium 15 minutes before any of our three weekend ENCOUNTER services and pray with our pastors and worship leaders.
— Visit our Prayer Area at the back of the auditorium immediately after ENCOUNTER to pray for and with others.
— Become part of our Prayer Team by emailing email@example.com. You’ll receive urgent prayer requests by email and can be involved in praying with others after our services whenever you’re available.
— Pray for our missionaries who are serving around the world. Join us the second Sunday of the month at 10:45 a.m. in Room 302. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
