Leading people into a maturing new life in Jesus Christ

The Meaning of Prayer

“What is prayer? Prayer is a relationship, wherein we humbly communicate, worship, and sincerely seek God’s face, knowing that He hears us, loves us and will respond, though not always in a manner we may expect or desire. Prayer can encompass confession, praise, adoration, supplication, intercession and more.

In addition, our attitude in prayer is important. We must not be haughty, but humble. We must always strive to have a prayerful attitude. Our prayers must come often and regularly, from a humble heart, realizing our dependence on God in every aspect of our lives.” (Velarde, pars 21 & 22).

I’m happy to announce that Sabbath Morning Prayer Time now runs from 8:45-9:30 am to allow more time to praise Jesus and to give Him our prayers. We meet in Classroom B and I encourage all of you to come and give praises to the Holy One.

As the often quoted phrase states, “prayer is the engine that drives the church” and that is so true of Edmonds.

“In all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:6

God Bless,
