We believe prayer is powerful and necessary. It’s a major focus in our lives and ministry and here’s why.
- To Know Him There is no substitute for knowing God for yourself, and prayer is a great way to get to know Him. Through prayer we enter into vital fellowship with God. We see His goodness, we come to know His heart, and it makes us love Him more.“And this is eternal life: it means to know, to perceive, recognize, become acquainted with and understand You, the only true and real God, and likewise to know Him, Jesus as the Christ, the Anointed One, the Messiah, whom You have sent.” John 17:3 (AMP)
- To Know The Plan Through prayer, God opens our spiritual eyes to see what is in His heart, and gives direction vital to accomplishing His plan. He gives us insight we could never get on our own. Without God’s direction and wisdom, we busy ourselves with our own ideas and plans, instead of finding out what He wants us to do, and doing it. We can keep ourselves busy, but we’re not fruitful. We can build our own lives and ministry and miss the mark, or we can get God’s blueprint and build with Him. Psalm 127:1 “Except the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it...” (AMP)
- To Do The Work Through prayer we partner with God to do His business in the earth. Prayer starts with God and flows out through the hearts and mouths of His children, to accomplish His plan in the earth. We need Him and He needs us. It’s a glorious partnership that is both an honor and responsibility for every child of God. The great man of prayer, E. M. Bounds, said it this way, "God's cause is committed to men; God commits Himself to men. Praying men are the vice-regents of God; they do His work and carry out His plans."
What We're Doing With Prayer
- We teach on prayer in Bible Schools, churches, prayer schools and conferences. Our passion for prayer is contagious and the end result is that Christians are inspired and excited to take their place in prayer.
- We are looking for Pastors and churches who will host our Beyond Prayer Meetings. For years now, we have been holding special corporate prayer meetings with the specific purpose of praying into God’s global plan to take the Gospel to the nations. Some prayer projects require a corporate anointing to accomplish, and we believe this is one of them!
- We are working to develop a prayer network of believers in the UK and Ireland, as well as in the USA, who pray regularly with a focus on the expansion of Bible schools, church planting, as well as the training and sending of missionaries to the least reached places on earth.
