Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Monthly Church Prayer Meeting
On the second Wednesday of the month, we gather together as a church family to pray for each other, Grace Church, the city of Bath and the world.
The Importance of Praying
A Calling and a Commitment
At Grace Church, we believe that God is in control and we are dependent upon Him at all times and in all ways. Prayer is essential to everything we do as we seek to introduce Jesus to people who don’t yet know him and to make better disciples of those who do.
We strongly believe that belonging to a church family involves 4 connecting actions from family members: meeting regularly, praying, serving, and giving.
Doing these things don't make us a Christian, only faith in Jesus can do that; rather they are what Jesus calls us to do and should be our response to God for what He has already done for us.
We pray on our own in our homes, all together in our Sunday family gatherings, and in smaller numbers in our midweek home groups. Many of us also pray regularly in smaller groups of just 2 or 3 others.
One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
He said to them, “When you pray, say:
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.
And lead us not into temptation.”
