One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
He said to them, “When you pray, say:
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.
And lead us not into temptation.” Luke 11.1-4
Doing these things do not make us a Christian, only faith in Jesus can do that; Rather they are what Jesus says should be our response to God for what He has already done for us.
As a church we believe that God is in control and we are dependent upon Him at all times and in all ways. Prayer is essential to everything we do as we seek to introduce Jesus to people who don’t yet know him and to make better disciples of those who do.
We pray on our own in our homes, all together in our Sunday family gatherings, and in smaller numbers in our midweek home groups. Many of us also pray regularly in smaller groups of just 2 or 3 others.
On the second Wednesday of the month, in the evening, we get together as a whole church family to pray.
