We believe God answers prayer. Prayer is answered by a loving and all-knowing God who gives us what we need and not what we think we need. Sometimes it is helpful to look at the big picture to see the answers. God will often give us more than we can imagine to ask.
Grace Church has a chapter of the Daughters of the King (DOK). The DOK have taken vows of prayer, service and to help others understand the love of God. They gather regularly to pray for individuals and the community. To learn more about this order, CLICK HERE.
We have many verses in scripture that help us understand why prayer is important:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (Philippians 4:6)
The LORD is near to all who call on him (Psalm 145:18 a)
You will pray to him, and he will hear you. (Job 22:27)
