“Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” – James 5:16
At ABF we believe that prayer is the way that we fellowship with God and also how He ministers to us. We want to model, teach, equip, and bring comfort to our church body in prayer and through prayer. We believe what James 5:16 teaches; which says that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective and, when we confess and pray for one another, then healing can begin.
Jesus modeled for us the importance of prayer in times alone with the Father and also taught His disciples how to pray for those in need. We desire to live in this way as Jesus taught us.
At ABF we hope to help connect people to Christ through prayer. The Prayer Ministry aims to teach and lead the church in both individual and corporate prayer. We will not seek our own will through our own efforts but we will humbly come before God with a repentant heart seeking His will. We submit to Jesus Christ as the Head of the church and will strive to obey His command that His church should be called a House of Prayer.
“…for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” – Isaiah 56:7
We have an opportunity for prayer the first Friday night of every month at Pastor Spencer’s home. We hope you will take the time to join us that day for a time of fellowship and prayer.
We also meet every Sunday before service at 9:45 AM for prayer in the downstairs classroom. You are always welcome to come early for service and to join us as we lift up the service, the congregation and each other, in prayer to our Lord and Savior.
If you need any more information on our Prayer Ministry or the opportunities listed above please contact one of the elders or fill out the contact form below and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
