Prayer

When Jesus Christ was on earth, he often went off by himself to pray to His father. Prayer is a primary way for us to communicate with God.

We can use prayer to ask questions, or when we are in need of support we can ask God to provide for us. This could be physical needs or mental and spiritual. We can also use prayer to ask for forgiveness and to admit that we have done something wrong.

How do we pray at Montpelier

Prayer is embedded into all of our worship services. However every 2 months on a Saturday morning, we open the Church for a few hours and encourage people to come to pray. This is an opportunity for us to focus on how we pray as well what we pray about. The Church is open for people to come in and sit quietly on their own. However, if others are also there people can pray together and for each other just as they did in the early days of the Church.

We display some prompts that can help people structure their prayers; these prompts might range from the world, the community, the church or the individual.

The church leadership (our church elders) meet every Monday morning to pray for church members, their families and others who may attend the church.

‘“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.

 Give us today our daily bread.

 And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors. 

And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.'"

Matthew 6
