Mobilising, training and equipping Christians for prayer
We have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain. Since we have Jesus as a great high priest over the house of God, we can draw near to the Lord, with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith.
Simple and meditative prayer takes you to deeper intimacy with God. This is how the church fathers, monks in monasteries, many of the early Christians, and Christians through the centuries learned to pray and to enter into a deeper relationship with God.
Father, we pray that You will pour out a spirit of prayer and supplication upon the saints, so they will cry out to you night and day.

Father, we pray that every person in our country will have a clear revelation of Your one and only Son, Jesus Christ.
Lord Jesus Christ, You loved us and washed us from our sins in your blood. Thank You for offering yourself through the eternal Spirit, without blemish to God and so to purchase us, the Church of God, with your blood.
Here Jesus Christus, U het ons verlos van ons sondes deur U bloed. Dankie dat U Uself as volkome offer aan God gegee het deur die Ewige Gees, en ons losgekoop het as gemeente van God deur U Bloed.
By the age of 18, more than 60% of teenagers have been drunk. 32% of teens admit to intentionally accessing nude or pornographic content online. Two hours of gaming has the same impact as snorting one line of cocaine. Will you pray for the protection of teenagers from destructive temptations?
