Since God is the source of all good things by his grace, and the essence of Christian faith is simply to trust him, prayer is a vital expression of our faith. Prayer is simply talking to God, and it is as essential as breathing for Christians. Throughout the Bible we find God's people devoted to prayer in their daily lives (Acts 2:42), but especially when there are decisions to be made (e.g. Luke 6:12) or strength is needed (e.g. Matthew 26:36-46, Acts 4:24-31).
Therefore prayer is one of our core values. We want every aspect of our life together to be bathed in prayer and guided and empowered by our prayer life together.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (Philippians 4:6).
