They pray mainly made for spiritual–not material–things. They believe prayer is a mighty source of power. A common refrain in testimonies: I want to read more, pray more and meditate more in the coming days. They pray in the mornings and before they go to bed, and some who are able may kneel while praying.
They also pray (give the blessing; say grace) before they eat their meals. They pray privately for the sick, but don’t go in person to hospitals or to the ill to pray for them. They don’t engage in prayer chains. Most end their prayers with the words: in Jesus’ name we ask, Amen.
There are no special prayer services held besides the verbal prayers made during the meetings. They don’t ask each other to pray for them or for someone else, believing that shows a lack of faith in God hearing their prayers.
I John 5:14 – And this is the confidence we have in Him, if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us.
Worker Quote: Prayer is a very important subject. It is a Holy Communion with God. It is the closest, most intimate relationship we can have with our creator. Prayer is not playing magic games, spinning prayer wheels, reading off a list, or asking for things to be done. It is communion. “Deep calls unto Deep,” (Psalm 42: 7). In prayer the depths of your spirit are in communion with the depths of the Spirit of God. Out of this can come instruction, guidance, or a burden to pray for certain things. Prayers are a life and death matter held in balance. The most important link is our relationship with God through prayer. Many who have lost their faith in God failed in prayer. There is no quicker way to grow than by spending more time in prayer (Rose F).
