PRAYER

ABBEY PRAYER helps to develop our communication with God. It is a reaching up to abide with our Father continually.

The resources found in the Prayer section are crafted to help develop the area of prayer in our lives. Whether we struggle with knowing how to pray, finding the words to pray or remembering to pray - we desire to help the body of Christ grow in the area of prayer.  


"The possibilities of prayer are the possibilities of faith. Prayer and faith are Siamese twins. One heart animates them both. Faith is always praying. Prayer is always believing." -E.M. Bounds

Proverbs 4:23  Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.

The first thing that catches my attention in this Proverb is the word “keep”. Other translations say “guard your heart”, “keep vigilant watch over your heart”. Keep is a verb, an action word, a word that requires something of me. The implication is that the care of our heart, our soul, will not just happen, it won’t just fall on us or surprise us. We are to actively, with vigilance, pursue the health of our soul.

I recently watched a great TED Talk by Simon Sinek about how great leaders inspire action. His central point is that great leaders start with and lead out of the question “Why?”. We are most compelled by the right WHY. That center has far greater motivating power than WHAT or HOW.

Available on The ABBEY APP, the daily prayer section will allow you to receive a request each morning to pray for either the city you choose or a world request. Monday - Friday of each month we will pray through various areas of the city and country, and at the close of each week you will have the chance to find out more about helping in that area, should you feel led. Our hope is that these request will unite the people of God as we pray for our cities and countries around the world together.  

 Knoxville is the city we are launching from, our hope is that as our user base grows we will be able to expand and provide this resource for other cities as well.

 Each month we will be praying for a different country, as we are able, we will network with missionaries and nationals in these countries to give you the most up to date request.
