Value #6 Prayer                  

We realize that praying is what Christians and the church are supposed to be known for. Even Jesus said, “My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations…” Mark 11:17. Prayer is not just a Christian practice or part of a Christian worship service, but the visible and demonstrable way we declare that without prayer, nothing of significance happens. Prayer declares that we are weak, He is strong.

Text: John 14:12-17

and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. – John 14:12b

 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate,[b] who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth.- John 14:16-17
