Every Tuesday and Thursday morning we start off EC with prayer class, and it is the most amazing way to start your day. We start off by reading the word, and getting stirred up in faith about different things that we are specifically praying over. Let me tell you one thing- Prayer is absolutely crucial. There’s no way I’d rather start off my day than seeking after God, hearing from Him about what He has planned for me, and just feeling so loved and energized by the Spirit.

I never really had a super strong prayer life, but after witnessing first hand each week in EC Prayer, the power that prayer has in your life, prayer has become something I cannot go without. In 1 John 5:14 the word says “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” God’s will for our lives is that we have life to the fullest, and all we have to do to receive that, is ask. That’s the power of prayer. I’ve come to see so much more fruit from my prayer life after I started routinely spending time to talk with God, and hear from Him every single day.

You can’t just do this twice a week on EC days and expect to see crazy signs and wonders, you’ve got to commit to this everyday. Once you do commit to this, and begin doing it actively and whole-heartedly, you’ll realize that it’s actually not that difficult to do, in fact, it actually feels great, and makes everything else in your life feel easy. One of the most important things that I’ve come to learn about prayer, is that what matters most aren’t your words, but your heart. God sees what you have on your heart, and if what’s written on your heart is a longing for Him, He will honor that.

I just want to encourage every single one of you to make sure that you are taking time out of your day to actively talk to God. He so desperately just wants to connect with you, and bless you and love on you, if you’ll only be willing to seek Him out and ask. I hope these words carried weight for you, and help you in this season!

Love you all so much!
