Prayer serves so many purposes in the life of a Christian, not only is it an integral part of our relationship with God, but also a means of supporting those close to us and the wider world at large.
We pray for our family members, for neighbours and friends.
We pray for those who don't know Jesus to come to faith - many Christians have come to believe in Christ through the prayers of others.
We pray for world issues, for peace in difficult situations, for leaders and those in influential positions, for global issues such as the care of God's environment, justice for the poor, relief of suffering in less developed countries, and those involved in mission work both at home and overseas.
Here at St James Birkdale we have many opportunities to meet together and pray - whether it be shared with others or spoken in the quiet stillness of our own hearts and minds.
