We will pray with you and for you....

There is always hope for a better tomorrow...and it can start today.

 A word about prayer...                                                              

In God's Word to us,  we are given His promise.

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”  Matt. 18:20 (KJV)

What does this mean?    This simply means that when we come together before God with another person in one accord, He will hear our prayer... because He is right there with us. 

God, who is our loving Father, desires the best for us. His love never fails!  Life often gets complicated and we feel hurt, confused or broken, and we don't know where to turn for help.  In these moments, we can and must come to our Father who love us the Most. 

This is why we are here.  Know that you are not alone, or without a prayer partner.  We are available to pray with you and offer helpful insight and scripture to  help you when life gets hard. 

Sometimes, we just need someone to listen and to know someone really does care about us.  This is why we are here.   We are here because we care about you.  We are here because we love you.  And, you are worthy of much love! 

Romans 15:13

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

The Lord's Prayer

If you ever wondered how to pray or wondered if God hears your prayers?
Jesus told His disciples how to pray

in Matthew 6:9-13: 

He said, “This, then is how you should pray:

‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
For Thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory.

A Prayer of Repentance

"Heavenly Father, I come to You humbly.  I have searched my heart and found myself empty and broken.

I acknowledge that I have lived my life in a selfish and sinful way. I have put my own wants and needs ahead of others. I acknowledge that You, God,  are the Creator of all things. It is You, who deserves to be honored through my praise and worship to you. It is You who has always loved me the Most!

I repent that I haven't acknowledged You and given You the proper place of honor in my life, the place that You rightly deserve for You are God.

I repent for rejecting You, Father God.

I acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Your Son and He has stood at the door of my heart knocking and I wouldn't let Him in.  Today, I open the door of my heart, Lord Jesus, and I welcome You in.  I believe that You are the Son of God. You came to the earth from Heaven to live as a baby, child and man. You lived and preached and healed, and You died on the Cross at Calvary... a cruel and tortuous death, taking the punishment for my sins and the sins of the entire world.  You love me so much and I know this day that I do not want to live my life apart from Your Presence within myself.  

Today, I turn from my selfish, sinful ways and turn to You, Father God. I believe  in You, Jesus, as my personal Lord and Savior.  I choose this day to receive salvation, and today I know in my heart that I am forgiven.  I offer forgiveness to everyone who has ever hurt me. My life is renewed and I will live fully now and have peace in my heart and my spirit.  All of the Fruits of the Spirit are my Portion. 

Thank You, Jesus, for loving me. I will walk with You and love, as You love. I will walk as You walk and talk as You would have me to talk.  Without You, I was nothing, but with You my life is valuable and I have a purpose and place that I look forward to every day.  Your Word tells us, that Your Promises never fail us. You knew me before You formed me in my mother's womb and You have called me back unto Yourself.  Today, I repent and receive Your love and I am changed forever...

In Jesus' name, Amen."

Jesus, I declare that Your name is Holy!
