Prayer is where it all starts. Prayer is important. Prayer is a time for you to talk to God as your friend.

Prayer Is Where It All Starts

Prayer is important.  At The Village, we believe in the power of prayer and are committed to making that a focus for our church. Prayer is a time for you to talk to God as your friend. A time to tell Him what’s in your heart, what you’re thinking, feeling and struggling with. Think of it not as an obligation, but an opportunity. An opportunity to thank your creator for all that you have. Take time to pray every day – Ask for miracles, ask for God’s power to be shown.

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” – Ephesians 6:18

Lilye Sease, Prayer Pastor, ensures that The Village is a church that prays together and stands strong together as one body. She makes sure that prayer is at the forefront of all we do at The Village.

“I am a true believer in the power of prayer and with all that’s happening in the world around us, I invite you to join me in becoming a great Prayer Warrior. This is someone who is willing to commit to daily, heartfelt prayer for others and is willing to pray alone, in pairs, or in groups.” – Lilye, Prayer Pastor
