"This, then is how you should pray:
'Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy
kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the
power, and the glory, for ever. Amen' " Matthew 6:9-13 KJV
"Be anxious for nothing, but in
everything by prayer and
supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known
to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Phil 4:6,7
" Therefore confess your sins to
each other and pray for each
other so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous
is powerful and effective." (James 5:16)
Prayer is one of the greatest blessings
of being a Christian. The
hope of our God is that we will communicate regularly with God
and prayer is that communication. Our Lord wants us to share
our feelings, our happiness and joy, our desires, and our concerns.
Our promise from God is that God will listen and bring us an
answer, even though it is hard sometimes to understand that the
answer is not our desire. But we can always be sure that the
response will come with support and guidance and love. God will
always love us and help us get through the "tough" times.
If you would like someone at Fields
UMC to lift a need or
concern to God in prayer, this is the place to do that. An
Internet site isn't the same as talking to someone in person,
but please remember that caring Christians are on the other
side of your computer screen. We are here; we care!
Let us know how we can help.
