NEW PRAYER SECTION

With the everchanging circumstances around us because of the Coronavirus pandemic, how wonderful that we can always turn to God, the One who never changes.

God is always there to lead us to pray and then to answer our prayers. At times we may have the desire to pray, but perhaps aren’t sure how to pray. We know that spiritual health is important for every Christian and especially for those who are responsible for the spiritual wellbeing of others.

To bless and encourage you we have compiled a list of prayers that you may find helpful to browse through and say for yourself, along with a verse of scripture to reflect on and pray.

God bless you dear friends and know that the Father ‘rejoices over you with singing’                      (Zephaniah 3:17) and hears every spoken and unspoken prayer that we make.
