Extraordinary prayer (148 x 55 mm) (2).png

At Union Baptist Church, we believe in the power of prayer. We aspire to be people who are prayerful, dependent on God for everything. We know that we see and experience God most when we are devoted to inconvenient, costly prayer. Prayer is at the heart of everything we do at Union Baptist Church but we need to grow in prayer, as individuals and as a church family.

 

During our week of prayer from 2nd – 8th June 2024 we are challenged to:

EXTRAORDINARY PRAYER

It’s really simple. We take the ordinary prayer (the way we pray ordinarily, in an ordinary week) and try adding something extra to it. Here are some extras that we encourage you to try during the week:

We add the ‘extra’ to our ordinary prayer to make ‘extraordinary prayer’

ORDINARY PRAYER + EXTRA = EXTRAORDINARY PRAYER

When this becomes ordinary we add something extra – this is how to grow in prayer!

Fasting

Fasting can connect us more closely to God and give strength to our prayers. It involves the costly practice of giving up something – often food for a time. But we can fast from other things e.g. TV, social media etc.
