Prayer Resources

“To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.”

– Martin Luther

Prayer is the practice of the presence of God. It is the place where pride is abandoned, hope is lifted, and supplication is made.  Prayer is the place of admitting our need, of adopting humility, and claiming dependence upon God. Prayer is the needful practice of the Christian.  Prayer is the exercise of faith and hope.  Prayer is the privilege of touching the heart of the Triune God.

But sometimes we need a bit of help or guidance with how we pray, or resources to inspire us in new ways…
