“Be still, and know that I am God”
Prayer at KPC
The Bible reveals that our God is not only the Almighty Creator but also a person who has chosen to make himself known to us. In our daily lives we know other people mostly by what we see and hear of them in our interactions with them. We are therefore encouraged to commit everything by prayer, with thanksgiving, (Phil 4:6) and pray without ceasing (1 Thes 5:17)
For Christians, prayer is one of the greatest privileges given as a gift from God. For Jesus Christ prayer was a way of life, and also for us in prayer we experience confidence in God’s love, presence, provision and guidance.“
Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.” ( Corrie Ten Boom)

Learning to pray
To pray is to make our hearts ready to experience the love of God in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Prayer opens us more deeply to the transforming grace of God. We enter into God’s presence, allowing the Holy Spirit to pray in us. Where do I begin? See some helpful Church of England Learning to pray resources here.
The Church of England had published some Prayers for Personal Situations including guidance, difficult situations, growth, mourning and healing.
