Our local vision at Riverside is to pray, serve and grow. We recognise that the foundation of everything we do should be prayer. Below you will find updates to help us pray together during the week.
In the Bible we are encouraged to pray constantly. We understand this to mean that prayer is more than speaking to God, it’s an attitude of life.
The act of prayer is humbling, putting God first in our lives.
When we pray we confess our belief that Jesus is with us and we admit that we are dependant on God.
We also believe that God has chosen to work in the world through the prayers of his people. And so we pray for our communities, families and friends. Jesus even challenged us to pray for our enemies!
Prayer can be quiet and reflective or loud and emotion filled. But however we pray, we are joining in the life of God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Inspired and guided by the Spirit we honour our Father in Heaven through the grace of his Son Jesus Christ.
Prayer may be the main reason we have a voice!
