"Prayer that works is prayer that makes a difference, contemplation that turns into action, on behalf of peace and justice in a troubled and unjust world system. Prayer is energy, the energy of love and transformative power. It is given to us to use for the good of all creation. In prayer God gives us the fuel of life, and asks us to live it."

Help me, Lord

"Please help me," I prayed. "Please change me. I know You can do it because I've seen You make drunkards sober and turn thieves into honest men. Please take away these inferiority feelings that are holding me back. Take away this awful shyness and self-consciousness. Let me see myself, not as a scared rabbit, but as someone who can do great things in my life because You are with me, giving me the strength and confidence I need."

Nobody finds time for prayer. You either take time for it or you don't get it.

Voltaire's Prayer

I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one:
'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.'
And God granted it.

Join us

Prayer Time:

Someone has said that, if Christians really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless.

In W.W.II there was an advisor to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every day at a prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of England, its people and peace.

There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America. If you would like to participate: Every evening at 9:00 pm Eastern Time (8:00 pm Central) (6:00 pm Pacific), stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens, and peace. If you know anyone else who would like to participate, please pass this along. Our prayers are the most powerful assets we have. Together, we can make a difference!
