Preparing for Sunday: Prayer
Prayer allows us to search ourselves and question our own motivations. It challenges us and affirms us.
Praying for others is a vital part of Christian fellowship. In our final look at James this week, we read about prayer. James tells us that the ‘prayer of a good person has a powerful effect.’

Prayer for Sunday
Gracious God, creator of heaven and earth. I desire a closer connection with you. To converse with you as the prophets of old. Hear me when I pray; I may not always use smooth sounding words. I may falter in my speech, I may lose focus and become distracted. However, I want to talk to you. Help me to have the patience to listen. In Jesus name, Amen.
