We often feel stuck and discouraged. We wonder if God is done with us, if our prayers matter, if the best years were in the past.
Prayer activates our creative response to God’s grace, compels us to love those we disagree with, orients our whole life toward God, teaches us to rely on God in all things, weaves us together as the body of Christ, and is made visible through our actions of serving God and neighbor.
“16 Rejoice always. 17 Pray continually. 18 Give thanks in every situation because this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
— 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (CEB)
