Prayer Calendar

Throughout the centuries, people have turned to God in prayer. But why and how should we pray to someone as powerful as God?

We pray because God loves us! When someone loves you that much, you want to spend time with them, listen to them speak, and get to know them better. All of that happens through prayer!

God wants nothing more but to be in relationship with us. When we talk to God, we can share what we need, seek forgiveness, and ask for grace. As we thank him for our blessings and fully listen to him with our hearts, God fills us with his love –a love that we can’t help but share with everyone we meet.

As we consider the gift of love that God has given to us and the opportunity we have to secure a space to share that love with others for generations to come, let’s honor him by listening to his voice as shared in Bible Scripture and by speaking regularly to him. Through prayer, may our love overflow.
