Prayer and The Pray-er
"Prayer" can make people squirm. Perhaps they have limited practice. Or haven't heard the "still small voice" the Bible speaks of. Or had hopes dashed by unanswered prayers.
Whatever your experience, remember that Jesus was a pray-er and encouraged us to follow him in that practice. The Apostle Paul says that when we pray, we are never alone. Though "we do not know how to pray … the Holy Spirit prays for us with sighs too deep for words" (Romans 8:26). So take a deep breath and sigh, even if it's all you can do.
God will hear.
At Wauwatosa Presbyterian Church, prayer is at the heart of our community life. We pray in words, songs, silence, and movement … in worship and in meetings, individually and together. We don't pray for just anything, however (good parking at the mall!), but for things that matter when we abide in Christ and his words abide in us (John 15:7). The best prayers are not for selfish desires, but "Thy will be done."
Old-fashioned technology is part of our prayer life too! Call our Care Line to hear about the concerns of the congregation. The number is 414-774-5005, followed by the number 4 when you hear the recording. Prayer requests may be directed to one of our Pastors or the Church Office. Another reminder that you are never alone.
