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
