The Life of Prayer

"Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert and always persevere in supplication for all the saints." (Ephesians 6:18)

"First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone..." (1Tim. 2:1)
In Mark 12:24 Jesus replied to his opponents this way: “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God?"

Here Jesus speaks of two major sources that inform Christian belief and form Christian character:
  • The Scriptures
  • Prayer.

These sources keep us on the path of daily faithfulness.
  • In the Scriptures we discover what God has done and said in times past.
  • In the life of prayer we encounter the wisdom and power of God in our daily lives
