Talking with God is our lifeline! We believe that prayer is the practical expression of dependence on God. It is the means by which we genuinely trust in the power and sovereignty of the Lord rather than our own abilities. Colossians 4:2 says, “Be devoted to prayer” and I Thessalonians 5:17 exhorts, “Never stop praying.” In light of God’s Word, the following are some of the ways we pray at Voyagers:
After the sermon, the people are challenged to respond to God in prayer. This prayer can be expressed in the pew, but we encourage “getting out of our comfort zone” by going to one of our 6 prayer stations situated around our sanctuary; here is the opportunity to write out prayers and/or to ask a prayer leader for their prayers.
Often people will write out a prayer request or a thankful answer to prayer at our prayer stations during or at the end of our worship services. And some will contact our pastors or the church office with their prayer requests. Whatever way we get these prayers, our Prayer Warriors are emailed these prayers and they pray each week for each prayer request or thanksgiving!
This is both a brief training and an opportunity to pray for a specific group of people or a challenging situation. Prayer Focus meets on the first and third Sundays of each month, 10:20 to 10:40AM (between services), in the Adult Ed Room.
Periodically we offer in-depth training to strengthen our understanding of prayer, how to pray more effectively for others, and to experience greater intimacy with God.
Whether it is a retreat center in the mountains, sitting down beside a quiet lake, or a vigorous hike, we love to get outside in the beauty of God’s creation and commune with Him! These opportunities happen at different times during the year.
This team exists to give overall leadership to VBC prayer ministries and to spur the Voyagers community to prayer by their prayers and attendance at all prayer meetings and trainings.
