Once again beloved, it is time for Praycation! Since 2009, we have invited you to join us on a 31-day spiritual journey to strengthen our relationship with the Lord through prayer. It's an opportunity to grow, go deeper and leap higher in faith. Let's get ready. It all begins August 1, 2013.
"Prayer catapults us onto the frontier of the spiritual life. Of all the Spirirutal Disciplines prayer is the most central because it ushers us into perpetual communion with the Father. Meditation introduces us to the inner life, fasting is an acocompanying means. study transforms our minds, but it is the Discipline of prayer that brings us into the deepest and highest work o the human spirit. Real Prayer is life creating and life changing."
Richard J. Foster
"Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name."
Majestic Lord, we lift our voices in praise and thanksgiving. Teach us to walk in the truth of your Word and demonstrate this truth in thought, word and deed to those we encounter today. Open to us the mysteries of your grace so that we can know the difference between what is essential and what is convenient. Grace is essential.
Create in us a clean heart and renew right intentions within us. In Jesus Name, remove from us all evil intentions so that wrong motives do not ever mingle with holy desires. Amen
