Why do Christians pray?
We believe that prayer is our opportunity to talk to God and allow Him to speak back to us. Conversations are essential in relationships, so prayer is one way to grow closer to God.
Creating A Lifestyle Of Prayer
Many times people act first and then want God to bail them out of a situation. But, prayer should be our first response, not our last resort.
Maybe most people don’t enjoy prayer because they have never been taught how to pray.
That’s why we’ve created a simple prayer guide that can help you incorporate prayer into your life. Using several prayer models from the Bible, this booklet is designed to infuse joy into your time with God. When you discover the beauty of daily conversation with Him, your life will never be the same!

How Do I Start?
There is no secret formula to prayer. You don’t have to sit in a certain place or say certain words. All you have to do is start a conversation with God and be willing to listen to Him.
Pairing prayer with Bible reading is a great way to start any moment of prayer. You can begin this conversation by letting Him know that you are open and ready to hear what He has to say through His Word.

What exactly is fasting, and how does it relate to prayer? The Bible shows that fasting is a great way to disconnect from something in our lives – like food, social media, or TV – and take time to connect with God.
Fasting pulls us away from distractions and allows us to spend time solely focused on God through dedicated prayer. You can choose to fast for several reasons: upcoming decisions, a fear of the unknown in a circumstance, a need for direction, repentance, or simply to grow closer to God. If you do decide to fast, we encourage you to incorporate prayer and scripture reading.
