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

---‘Prayer Through Jesus’ Eyes… Growing as His Disciples’   2020 Ken Peacock Memorial Lecture 

This seminar introduces a Jesus so personal, so rich in love, that participants are captivated heart-first to see as Jesus sees, leading to Spirit led prayer. Conveyed through an energetic, interactive format and incorporating the principles of A Praying Life, participants will be led through gospel narratives to open their hearts to the nudging of the Spirit to see through the lens of Jesus and then Scripturally pray for those in their own lives. As they enter into a sampling of the beauty of the Person of Jesus, their eyes will be opened to a rich encounter with God’s love, and their hearts empowered to love and pray for others.
 

--- FPCM’s Prayer Initiatives

Life is busy! When do you find time to pray? How do you settle in to make the most of the time you are able to find to allow your heart to communicate with God?
 
We know that prayer can take a variety of forms:
  • it can be part of a set service
  • it can be private praying
  • praying in a small group
  • or a church meeting.
 
Prayer may take the form of a hymn, formal prayer, or a spontaneous utterance from the praying person. We have so many ways to speak with and listen to our Lord.
 
All in all there is no doubt; prayer is a key component of our relationship with God.
 
The Prayer Team at First Presbyterian Church of Moorestown recognizes that a rich prayer life is possible and are here to help you. This page provides you with tools and events to help you get to your ‘Peaceful Praying Time’!

---‘Learning to Pray in a Distracted World’   2019 Lecture

Many of us are irregular or quietly defeated in our private prayer lives. This Ken Peacock Memorial Lecture seminar, “A Praying Life”, offers step-by-step ways to begin a private life of prayer in fellowship with our heavenly Father. Learn to talk like a child with your Father in heaven; see prayer as relationship, prayer as conversation, prayer as a good form of tension, and receive help with problems in prayer.
 
A Praying Life Seminar, held at First Presbyterian Church on January 25-26, 2019, was a live interactive version of the book “A Praying Life” by Paul Miller. Please view the Ken Peacock Memorial Lecture videos so you may learn from this exciting seminar. Blessings!
