“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

--- 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’!

--- Take Time to Pray

” I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day; I had so much to accomplish that I didn’t have time to pray.
Problems just tumbled about me, and heavier came each task; “Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered. He answered, “You didn’t ask.”
I wanted to see joy and beauty. But the day toiled on gray and bleak; I wondered why God didn’t show me. He said, “But you didn’t seek.”
I tried to come into God’s presence; I used all my keys in the lock. God gently and lovingly chided, “My child, you didn’t knock.”
I woke up early this morning, and paused before entering the day; I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray.”

---Learning to Pray in a Distracted World

 
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!
