Image for Prayer in the Bible

We will be opening up the amazing subject of prayer by journeying through the Bible looking at and learning from the prayers of people of faith in many different circumstances. As well as this we will be learning from the teachings of Jesus and Paul and also from the experience of Solomon in building the Temple as a place to meet with God. Our desire in doing this series is to see our prayer life develop and strengthen in our individual and corporate life together, that our eyes and ears may always be on Him and we may only say and do as the Father would say and do, so that we may see His Kingdom come in greater power in and through us all.
