We talk with our friends about all kinds of things. In the same way, we should talk to God about everything that is happening in our lives and how we feel about it. God wants us to tell him when we are happy, sad and afraid. He wants us to ask him what we want for others and for ourselves. Also, when we pray we give God an opportunity to work on us. God has told us to pray. Our prayers show that we obey and trust him to work in our lives.
You can talk to God wherever you are, at any time. But we need special times and places to pray everyday, in order to help us get into the practice of talking with God.
The First Church prayer group meets the third Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in the Prayer Room which is located above the Narthex. They gather to raise the joys and concerns that have been brought to the group. Anyone is welcome to join at any time. The prayer team also distributes a weekly prayer list via email. Anyone (member or not) can submit a prayer request to a member of the prayer team or church staff.
