WHAT IS PRAYER
Prayer can be defined as intentionally talking with God. Jesus is described as getting away to pray 30 times in the Gospels. Words can be expressed out loud or ideas shared in your mind. It’s not about intelligence, but persistence. It’s not about length, but love. It’s about taking a humble posture before God and taking time to build relationship with Him. It involves speaking honestly with God as well as taking time to quietly listen to what God might be speaking to your heart. Even when Jesus was busy with ministry, He always took time to stop and pray. In fact, the busier ministry got, the more time Jesus took to pray. Here at Mission Grove, we believe in the power of prayer. Do you need prayer? We'd love to come along side you and bring your requests before God together.
Do you feel like your prayer for emotional healing isn't being answered? Has grief overstayed its welcome within your work, your relationships, your faith? Often, our grief can feel like an enemy that arrives at the most inconvenient times. What is the surest way to transform from our pain?
The answer lies in the fact that grief is not an enemy but a companion. "Good Grief" examines five ways grief serves as a gift in the midst of our struggles and heartbreak. Once we can listen to what God has to say through our grief, we can apply His knowledge and see real change.
If you are looking for immediate change, we would like to offer this free devotional to shift grief from an unwanted visitor to a life-long companion.
