Prayer makes a difference. God’s power is seen when his people join together in prayer for one another. God hears the prayers of His people and He has the power to work mightily in any given situation.

We pray for the world around us, for the many who continue to suffer and call out for help, for those without enough to eat, for those caught up in violence and political uprisings, for those picking up the pieces after a natural disaster, and for those desperate to find work to support their families.
