When we come to the Lord in prayer, He hears us. 1 John 5:14 says, "if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us." When we intentionally pray over our family and come to the Lord with our requests, He hears us. Join us this week as we focus on the family!
We shift the discussion this week from praying for our friends, to praying for a different group of people. Each of us knows someone that doesn't know the Lord and as believers we're called to witness to them. Sometimes we aren't sure what to say or how to approach them, so where better to start than prayer? Join us as we pray over this specific group of people and ask the Lord to connect their hearts to Him.
It's easy to get caught up in our wants and needs. When we go to the Lord in prayer, we often focus on ourselves rather than others. This week, we're kicking off a series on prayer and shifting our focus to others. Join us in blessing those around us and praying for our friends!
God often uses different things or people when speaking to us. Sometimes He speaks to us in ways we aren't expecting. Jen Otero dives into the topic of "hearing the voice of God," which is also a key in Mercy's "Keys to Freedom" series, and gives clear understanding on some ways God speaks to us.
It's human nature to want to operate independently. In some cases, being independent is a good thing. When it comes to our relationship with God, however, we need to be dependent. Operating from a place of dependence in Christ is not only what He wants for our relationship with Him, it's then reflected on how we go about living our day to day lives.
