“To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.” -Martin Luther
Through this journey of Pray21 we have been deepening our prayer life through daily approaching God with our requests, confessions, thoughts, petitions, and our hearts. Our hope is that a new rhythm has been established through this time and that our working through postures of prayer, places of prayer, and prayers for people have broadened our perspective and challenged us to go deeper in our communication with Jesus. We fully believe that this is just the beginning of what God wants to do in us and through us in regards to prayer. We have just begun to scratch the surface.
Winston Churchill was quoted in World War 2 as saying “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” Pray21 has served as a beginning, the beginning of a daily communion with the Father. This is the end of that beginning, and our hope is that we all would continue on fervently and faithfully pray daily. To do so, we wanted to give some resources that might be helpful along the way. Obviously, praying through the Word of God and about things going on in our world is a great way to start. But, below are some helpful books, websites, and apps to check out along the way. Also, always remember to email the staff at Grace Point Church with requests, fill out a communication card, or come into the Prayer Room on a Sunday to receive personal prayer as well.
