Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.Ephesians 6:18
Prayer is vital for an individual and the church, and the church is made up of individuals. How much more do we need to get together and offer up our prayers together?
Why is this such an important ministry at Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni?
Because we talk to God in prayer. Prayer is not a passive act, but a direct address to Almighty God. It is the communication of the human soul with the Lord who created the soul. It is the primary and sole way for the believer in Jesus Christ to communicate his needs, emotions and desires with God and to fellowship with his/her maker.
All prayer must be offered in faith (James1:6), in the name of the Lord Jesus (John 16:23), and in the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:23).
Paul wrote, “Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7). Worry about nothing; pray about everything.
