The Weekly Prayer Focus 2022

Four years ago the Prayer Questers initiated the weekly prayer focus. As we begin a new year, we invite each member of our congregation to join us in weekly prayer. Group prayer among Christians has been important since the early church. Praying together invites the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to be at work within us and within the church. Prayer moves people and congregations towards a closer relationship with God. Imagine what God can accomplish through the power of our united prayers.The Prayer Questers pray that you be a part of this ministry in 2022.
