PRESS RELEASE: Prayer is more than placing our needs before God. It gives an opportunity to spend quality time with Him so that our relationship with Him can develop and mature. He already knows our needs and being the loving Father that He is, as the relationship grows, He supplies our hearts desires. This does not mean we should not ask, but our prayers should be more than just petitions.
Several Bible passages remind us of the importance of prayer and fasting. One such passage is Joel 2:12 – “Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye [even] to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:”
For the second consecutive year, the Prayer and Personal Ministries Departments of the St. Lucia Mission of Seventh-day Adventists have come together to host 40 days of Prayer on behalf of the government and people of our Island St. Lucia. The sessions will run from January 3, 2017 to February 11, 2017.
If there was ever a time we needed prayer, it is now. Mark 11:24 “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours”.
Sometimes we do not get answers because we are faithless.
Ways you can participate:
