Please join us in praying for Maveja.

Her sweet soul needs your intercession.

“It matters little what form of prayer we adopt…or how many words we use. What matters is the faith which lays hold on God, knowing that He knows our needs before we even ask Him. That is what gives Christian prayer its boundless confidence and its joyous certainty. We simply make petitions and requests to One who has the heart of a Father.

Of course, God’s will must be the primary object of our prayers… and we must recognize prayer as an instrument of God’s will. Therefore, we pray that God’s will may be done throughout the world…and in intercessory prayer we bring people… from around the world…into the presence of God.

Every intercession potentially draws the one for whom it is intended into a life-changing relationship with Christ. And in intercession I move into the other man’s place. I enter his life…his guilt and distress. I am afflicted by his sins and his infirmity. If…as we pray…we recognize our own responsibility for the world’s guilt and our own guilt in the death of Christ…then we can act upon and affect the lives of men and women throughout the world.”
