The Importance of Prayer
I believe prayer is important. I believe it impacts ministries, changes lives and is an essential part of our relationship with God.
We frequently post and update praises and prayer requests on our website. Here are all of our pending prayer requests for this year. Would you invest in our lives and ministries by bringing these requests to the Lord on our behalf?
