Prayer is our lifeline to God. It is our umbilical cord. Prayer is essential for a healthy, abundant life. Prayer is also an art form; it is the language of God, and like all languages and forms of art – it needs to be practiced to achieve fluency. Each Wednesday during Lent, we will gather to explore and practice the art of prayer.  I am praying you will join us.

For centuries, Christians were the driving force of society.  We built schools, hospitals and relief organizations, we taught skills and trades.  But in the last 50 years, that innovation has faded away.  What happened?  Society needs us now more than ever! We are guided by the Holy Spirit; we are God’s hands and feet.  We can transform the world. Sign up HERE.
