It all begins with your identity. Who are you in the eyes of God? God believes in us and desires to nourish the confidence we need in order to know Him as our loving and faithful Father. At the center of the heart of God is his desire for us to know him and to be known by him. Prayer is crucial for this discovery. Theologian named Kevin Vanhoozer defines prayer so well by simply saying, “prayer is the universal language of the human heart”. We as children of God are to tap into this language and the only way to learn it is by practicing it. No one knows us better than our Creator. He fashioned us into being before the foundations of the earth so that we may know him, talk to him, and to live abundant lives through a daily loving exchange with our Father. His love is better than life itself! (Ps. 63:3)

Join us in Prayer
Please pray that every local expression of the wider Church Body would become a House of Prayer (Is. 56:7). Let us pray that families of God and church bodies around the world would gain greater freedom and awareness of God’s presence through the power of prayer. May we as children of God exercise the purpose of prayer so that we may cultivate a vibrant and ever-evolving prayer life that manifests the love and power of Jesus Christ in our everyday living.
