What does prayer mean to you?

Prayer is a free gift to all, connecting us to God and each other.

But what if you never knew… what would your life be like without prayer, hope, and the comfort it offers?

Katie woke up at 5:30 am and immediately began making mental notes of all things she needed to do that day:

  • make lunches for the kids, an important meeting at work,
  • call the doctor to make an appointment,
  • don’t forget to pay the electric bill, oh, and the kids have soccer practice on Wednesday after school.

“Lord, please get me through this day,” she prayed silently to herself…

Katie knows that God is with her all day long and that she can approach the throne confidently because she has seen Scripture in her language that speaks directly to her heart.

…Later that day, Katie got a call from school. Her son is sick. “Oh no, the important meeting today,” she thought to herself. “I’m going to have to reschedule.” She left work to pick up her son from school and take him to the doctor. “Lord, please help my boss to understand.”

A few hours later, an email came through stating that her check had bounced for the electric bill. “Perfect!” she thought, “just one of those days.” As a single mom, she had been struggling to make ends meet each month. She knew she would get paid this Friday, and hoped the electric company would wait till then to cash the check. “Lord, I just can’t do all this alone. I need Your help. My family needs You. Please help us get through this season.”

Through prayer, we have personal and direct communication with our heavenly Father.

Though prayer, God offers love, comfort, support, and companionship.

1 John 5:14 tells us that, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

Prayer is a free gift to all, but many still do not know. 70 million Deaf people worldwide use a sign language as their primary language daily, yet 90 percent of the world’s sign languages are without Bible translation – leaving most Deaf people unreached with the Gospel.

Pray with us today, so that all may have an opportunity to know God and have the same confidence as Katie. Pray that they may know that no matter what circumstances they are facing, they are not alone.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

1 John 5:14
