Prayer Initiatives

“I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.”
Psalm 17:6

FPC Moorestown’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
  • you can pray in a small group
  • you can pray at 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’!

Begin and/or end your day with this simple outline of prayer…

For those wanting a study:
  • Praise – Praise God for who He is and has done; Thank God for what He has already accomplished through Jesus.
  • Repent – Confess your sins and shortcomings. Repent personally and on behalf of our nation. The Lord is quick to forgive when we come to Him.
  • Ask – Ask God to reveal truth, turn our hearts back toward Him, and bring healing.
  • Yield – Yield to the Lord and recognize that He has heard our prayers and will answer according to His will. He is waiting to provide guidance and direction.
