PRAYER

PRAYER IS ONE OF THE GREATEST PRIVILEGES WE HAVE. PRAYER HAS BEEN COMPARED TO OXYGEN IN THE CHRISTIAN LIFE. FOR ROCKYVIEW, PRAYER IS VITAL BECAUSE IT'S IN PRAYER THAT WE COMMUNICATE AND STAY IN RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, AND IT'S THROUGH OUR PRAYER LIFE THAT WE ACCESS ALL THAT WE NEED FROM GOD, FOR OURSELVES AND FOR OUR CHURCH.  IT'S ALSO LESS IMPORTANT HOW WE PRAY THEN THAT WE PRAY.

 

WHEN IT COMES TO PRAYER, JESUS IS OUR MODEL. IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT JESUS DIDN'T HAVE A PRAYER LIFE BUT LIVED A LIFE OF PRAYER. AT ROCKYVIEW ALLIANCE CHURCH, WE WANT TO FOLLOW JESUS’ EXAMPLE. WE WANT TO GROW A CULTURE OF PRAYER AT RAC.

 

PRAYER IS NOT SOMETHING WE ONLY PRACTICE ALONE, BUT ALSO TOGETHER. AS WELL, PRAYER IS NOT JUST AN INDIRECT WAY WE SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER ("I'LL PRAY FOR YOU THIS WEEK...")

BUT IT IS ALSO A WAY TO MINISTER TO SOMEONE IN HIS OR HER ACTUAL TIME OF NEED.

PRAYER CAN TAKE ON MANY DIFFERENT FORMS, SO WE HAVE A FEW DIFFERENT PRAYER MINISTRIES THAT TAKE PLACE ON A

RECURING BASIS:

 

  • SUNDAY MORNING PRE-SERVICE PRAYER - (IN PRAYER ROOM)

  • SUNDAY MORNING POST-SERVICE PRAYER - (IN SANCTUARY & PRAYER ROOM)

  • PRAYER CHAIN MINISTRY (TO BE ADDED TO THE CHAIN PLEASE CONTACT HEATHER BURTIS)

  • ONE ON ONE PRAYER WITH A PASTOR

 

ON SUNDAY MORNINGS, AFTER THE SERVICE, WE ALWAYS INVITE PEOPLE TO STAY FOR PRAYER. THIS IS WHY WE HAVE TRAINED AND IDENTIFIED PRAYER TEAM MEMBERS WHO CAN COME ALONGSIDE PEOPLE, TO LIFT THEM UP IN PRAYER, ASKING GOD TO REVEAL HIMSELF TO THEM, AND TO HELP THEM EMBRACE HIS LOVE, HEALING AND RESTORATION FOR THEIR LIVES.

IF YOU DESIRE PRAYER, PLEASE SEND YOUR REQUEST TO HEATHER BURTIS.

REQUESTS WILL BE SHARED WITH THE CONGREGATION’S PRAYER CHAIN.

FOR PRIVATE PRAYER REQUESTS THAT WILL ONLY BE SEEN BY OUR PASTORAL TEAM, PLEASE SEND PRAYER MESSAGE TO THE OFFICE.
