Faith Talk: Prayer

Written by: Cynthia Strickland

What a relaxing and blessed day we shared Saturday at our Faith Talk as Kelly Yam encouraged, inspired, and challenged us as she taught and shared her own personal journey in prayer. She gave us deeper insights into the meaning and value of prayer in our lives.

We had an experiential, interactive, and intimate time of prayer as we engaged in different prayer stations throughout the sanctuary. They added to our understanding of how to pray as the Lord taught the disciples to pray in Matthew 6:9-13.  The whole day was uplifting.

Through complete surrender to God in prayer we can know and experience God and His presence as He longs for us to do.  God can accomplish so much more in our lives, and the lives of others, as we become more devoted and obedient to His call to prayer.  It is a platform on which we can stand confidently before Him and trust that as we ask anything in His name, He will hear and answer out hearts’ requests.  As Kelly challenged us; “What does prayer mean to you?”
