At Quaker Monastery, our lives are dedicated to prayer: Pray with unceasing prayer and entreaty on every fitting occasion in the
Spirit, and be always on the alert to seize opportunities for doing so,
with unwearied persistence and entreaty on behalf of all God's people. - Ephesians 6:16
Prayer is an essential part of the Christian life for all Christians. It is an unfathomable
privilege and blessing to be able to rest our hearts and minds in the
presence of God the
Almighty, the Creator of the universe, and know that He loves us as our Father and
listens to our concerns through the merit of
His son, Christ Jesus. On a clear night, gaze up into the starry heavens and
just think about that. The Creator of the entire, vast, unknowable universe,
knows and loves you.
God is waiting for all who love
Him to cast their burdens upon Him in faith.
But, sometimes prayer does not come easily and it can help
to know that others
are praying with and for thee.
If thee would like the community at Quaker Monastery to pray for thee,
submit thy prayer
request (form below) and it will be taken to the Light of Christ Peace Chapel, and placed
in the private prayer box (not viewable to the public) on the
prayer table where the peace candle burns.
While many peace pilgrims and people of various faiths
do come to Quaker Monastery to be still and know God in the peace
of quiet, there are many who may never be able to visit us in person.
But where ever you are, we would be glad to hear from and pray for thee.
Whatever may be thy concern, remember Paul's comforting words to the Philippians: Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need,
and thank him for all he has done. - Philippians 4:6
Unfortunately, we may not be able
personally to prayer requests, but be assured that prayer requests
are added to our daily prayer intentions.
