Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
“Whosoever walks toward God one cubit, God runs toward him twain.”
Thinking of God as a harsh judge out to nail us for our misdemeanors is not conducive to prayer.
Considering God a Counselor and Friend with our best interests in mind encourages prayer.
Obsession with dutiful, meticulous adherence to a set of religious rules stifles prayer.
Delight with the privilege and honor of a relationship with God enhances prayer.
Parting company with God inevitably breaks our heart and ruins our day.
Steadily walking with God blesses our heart and enriches our day.
A mere mechanical relationship with God is superficial.
A heartfelt relationship with God is transformative.
Keeping distant from God leads to catastrophe.
Staying near God’s heart is a celebration.
“Enoch walked with God…”
