Prayer is the core of our worship here at Beacon Lough Baptist Church. We believe that problems can be solved through prayer, that attitudes can be changed by prayer, and that God deserves our praise and thanks with prayer. The biblical references to prayer are too numerous to be quoted, there are hundreds of them.
Apart from personal prayer times, we pray at our Sunday services, and at our mid-week Bible Studies. Each week on Saturdays at 8 am people pray together at the church, and every two weeks on a Tuesday an open prayer time is held.
Each month a prayer diary is produced, where for every day a specific person, organisation or topic (local and national) can be prayed for. And every three months, we hold a prayer breakfast. Here we eat a hearty breakfast, enjoy each other’s fellowship and then have an hour prayer time.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4 v 6
We can say thank-you to God praying with thanksgiving for all His goodness to us; We can confess to God that we have done, said or thought wrong things and ask Him to forgive us; We can petition God asking that He will grant our requests for ourselves and those we love.
We can intercede, praying for other people, and their needs.
“Lord teach us to pray,” requested the disciples in Luke 11 v 1
Do you want to know how to pray?
Would you like to know more about the power of prayer?
Have you someone you would like to pray for, but don’t quite know how to?
Are you weary and heavy-laden?
“Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5 v 7
