|The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
James 5:16 (New International Version)
What is prayer?
It is communication with God.
What does the Bible, God's Holy Word,
say about prayer?
|When we pray,
we can tell God
about our sorrows,
our joys, our needs,
Some people are not
certain what to say to God
or how to talk to God.
Does that describe you?
If so, please allow one of us to pray for
We consider it an honor and privilege
to pray for other people.
|We give thanks to God always for all of you, making mention of you in our prayers.

|David wrote this beautiful song which depicts his trust in God.
The 23rd Psalm
(King James Version)
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of
righteousness for His name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of
death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of
mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the
days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the
LORD for ever.
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Jesus taught His disciples how to pray
when He spoke these words from
Matthew 6:9-13 (King James Version).

12. And forgive us our debts,

For thine is the kingdom,

and the glory,
