Prayer is central to everything else that we do at Emmaus Rd; the very heartbeat of our community. Our vision is to be a house of prayer for all nations.
As we enter into this next phase of Emmaus Road’s journey as a congregation, there is an urgency to prioritise prayer. In this season, in the midst of the unfolding of world events, it is vital that we lean into God’s love, look at our lives and the world from God’s perspective, and call on God to do the things that only God can do. And in the midst of social distancing – prayer may very well be our greatest means of effectiveness.
Prayer is our first response, not our last resort.
