LET US PRAY FOR YOU
We believe prayer is a vital and fulfilling part of a relationship with God. Through prayer, we give thanks, ask for forgiveness, acknowledge God's power, pray for the needs of others, and pray for our own needs. At VPC we hope you feel free and equipped to pray, regardless of your circumstances. This page is intended to help prayer feel accessible to you, at any time.
Prayer is not as complicated as many make it look to be. For prayer is simply talking with God and sharing your hopes and dreams as well as fears, thoughts, and concerns. In fact, prayer is more than an event in the course of a day, but rather it’s being in constant communication with God.
Paul wrote, “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-17)
But prayer is not simply talking with God but prayer also involves listening. Prayer is also about being quiet and listening for God’s direction. Like any healthy relationship, we speak and we listen and the same is true in our relationship with God.
Many times we're asked to walk roads that are difficult and not ones that we would choose. When this happens, remember that you aren't walking alone; God is with you every step of the way! As a part of Christ's church, we consider it a privilege to pray for those in need. Please submit your requests online if you need prayer. If you would like us to pray for someone besides yourself, we ask you to please get permission before sharing their personal circumstances. If you would like to pray with a Pastor, please note that in the form.
