First Presbyterian Church Prayer Ministry

The goal of the Prayer Ministry at First Presbyterian Church is a church filled with people who listen to God, who are growing in faith, love, and obedience, and who pray continually about everything with confidence that God is hearing their prayers and answering them. The Prayer Ministry organizes seminars on prayer, encourages people to pray, coordinates First Presbyterian Church participation in the National Day of Prayer, and has opened a prayer room in the South Chapel.

Thoughts on Prayer

“These I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer…for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” —Isaiah 56:7
 
“Prayer is our side of the friendship we experience in our relationship with Almighty God.” —Earl Palmer
 
“What if God does not demand prayer as much as gives prayer?  What if God wants prayer in order to satisfy us?  What if prayer is a means of God nourishing, restoring, healing, converting us?  Suppose prayer is primarily allowing ourselves to be loved, addressed and claimed by God.  What if praying means opening ourselves to the gift of God’s own self and presence?  What if our part in prayer is primarily letting God be giver?  Suppose prayer is not a duty but the opportunity to experience healing and transforming love?” —Martin Smith

Prayer

The National Day of Prayer this year is on Thursday, May 3.  Please offer up your prayers to the Lord for our nation!  There will be a prayer event at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma from Noon-1:00 p.m. on that day, if you want to participate.  See details here: http://ndptacoma.org/
 
We also have a new prayer meeting at the church to pray for our church’s ministries.  Those meetings take place every other Tuesday, 11-noon in the Prayer Room.  Next month the days will be May 1May 15, and May 29.  We have the tremendous privilege of knowing that our great God hears our prayers.  Let’s spend some time with Him and seek His face!
