Why do we make such a big deal of prayer?
It is our lifeline.
Prayer is how we connect to the heart of God and his love for us. And it’s the fuel behind our presence within the city. There is absolutely no advancement of the gospel, in our hearts or in our city, without a firm foundation in prayer.
We ask for prayer requests every Tuesday through text message. You can subscribe by providing your phone number in your Planning Centre account or by texting (604) 670-4054. Our staff prays together for every matter brought to us. You can also submit prayer through this form. All requests will be kept confidential unless permission is given.
Set a daily alarm or reminder for 12:12pm to join our movement of prayer. When it pings, take a moment to pray. Why 12:12pm? Romans 12:12, “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” But also because it’s most people’s lunch so you’ll actually be free to pray. You can pray with whoever you’re with, you can text a prayer to a friend, or call someone to pray with you, or pray by yourself.
Each season we have a prayer focus. During this time we are praying for the world and COVID-19.
During this season, we have suspended in-person gatherings. We are hosting Wednesday Midday Prayer through video conference. Join our Prayer Group for details.
The Daily Offices
Throughout the centuries, Christians have engaged in the discipline of praying in the morning and evening. This practice is called The Daily Offices. As a church rooted in the Anglican heritage, we encourage this discipline. It is life transforming and unites you with praying Christians throughout the centuries and the world today. We have put together a helpful, intuitive guide for our church to engage in the Daily Offices. You can download it or pick up a physical copy on a Sunday at St. Peter’s.
