Year of Prayer


Time and time again as we’ve faced various challenges, God has led His people to fall on their knees in prayer and seek His path and power. Our hope is that you will be encouraged throughout this year as we bring you resources to help you incorporate prayer into both your personal and your public life.



Meditation On Prayer

We’re so grateful that we can come before the God of the universe in prayer!  We hope this video will bring you a few moments that will quiet your heart and to help you to think about the gift that we have in prayer.


The Lord's Prayer

The Lord's Prayer is one of the best loved and most spoken prayers. Almost all Christians have come to know and memorize this prayer. 
With all of the trials, turmoil and turbulence that we can experience in this life, this prayer can help to keep us grounded in our walk with the Lord.
D.C. Washington sang this prayer as the opening prayer at our annual fundraising banquet in April. The song was exceedingly beautiful and many have asked us to share it with you. Our prayer is that you too will be blessed by it.





How Can I Grow in Prayer?

You hear it all the time: "If you want to be a serious Christian, you must be a person of prayer". But, sometimes it’s hard to pray! Dr. Bill Kynes looks honestly at what keeps us from praying and teaches us how to grow in prayer.

Why Pray?

Everyone tells us to pray, and even more importantly the Bible tells us to pray. But, the Bible also tells us that God is omnipotent - He already knows all about us - so, why pray?In this short article by Tom Tarrants from Spring 2003 issue of Knowing & Doing, Dr. Tarrants helps us to see that God’s omnipotence is only part of the picture.

Recommended books


Christians are taught in their churches and schools that prayer is the most powerful way to experience God. But few receive instruction or guidance in how to make prayer genuinely meaningful. In Prayer, renowned pastor Timothy Keller delves into the many facets of this everyday act.
With his trademark insights and energy, Keller offers biblical guidance as well as specific prayers for certain situations, such as dealing with grief, loss, love, and forgiveness. He discusses ways to make prayers more personal and powerful, and how to establish a practice of prayer that works for each reader.


A Praying Life

PRAYER is simply you ― a child of a good Father ― making conversation with him a rhythm of your life. For most of us, prayer is so hard that unless circumstances demand it, we simply do not pray. Prayerlessness is rooted in unbelief. Because of prayerlessness, our lives are often marked by fear, anxiety, joylessness, and spiritual lethargy.

If prayerlessness marks your life more often than not, A Praying Life is for you. Now with added chapters on prayers of lament and further guidance for using prayer cards, Paul Miller introduces us to prayer that regularly and consistently hopes, trusts, and expects God to act.

What Difference Does Prayer Make?

In this booklet, Miller shares his insights and conclusions about how to connect the broken pieces of your life and allow prayer—even poorly delivered—to fill the gaps with meaning and substance.

Miller's down-to-earth approach and practical nature will help you see that your relationship with God can grow and your communication with Him can get better.


With Christ in the School of Prayer

What if prayer is more than a means of maintaining the Christian life? Andrew Murray believes prayer was the highest work entrusted to man by God, the root and strength of all our other work in Him. It is only through prayer that the believer taps into the source of highest power.

Murray discovered that it is Christ who teaches us to pray. The more we abide in Him and grow into His likeness, the more our lives will become like His. It is Murray’s heartfelt desire that all Christians would enroll in a personal session With Christ in the School of Prayer.


The Heart of Prayer

How much do we really pray? When we do pray, are we focused on our own performance or on making a good impression on God and those around us?

This uplifting book encourages and calls believers to turn their eyes away from their own performance and follow Jesus as they pursue the heart of prayer. Despite our weakness in prayer, Jesus teaching and example provide support rather than condemnation.
