Prayer

At Valley, we value PRAYING to God and for one another; therefore, our goal is that every person at Valley will experience a growing commitment to authentic conversation with God. 

We have resources here and at the church that will help you join with hundreds of others who are practicing this critical discipline of prayer. Those resources include:

 

Prayer Room at Avon Campus

 

Valley's Prayer Room is designed to

  • engage our church in the need for prayer,

  • enlist our church to exercise the practice of prayer,

  • equip our church in the disciplines of prayer,

  • encourage church members and friends to intentionally and fervently pray daily.

The Prayer Room is reserved for meeting personally with God in prayer and is designed to be a Training Center for prayer. It isn't meant to be the only place you pray. Rather, it is meant to be a resource for your prayer life. 

The room is divided into six Prayer Focus Areas to help you experience whole prayer

  1. Repentance & Confession

  2. Worship of the King

  3. Intercession & Our Community

  4. Our World

  5. Listening

  6. Answered Prayer

We invite you to come in and use the Prayer Room.

 

Six Types of Prayer

 

The six different types of prayer, as defined by Pastor Jay: 

Praise

Praise to God is what we offer in acknowledgement of God's excellent being. We praise God for who He is. You might think that praise is the same as saying "thank you," but there is a difference.

Study on the Attributes of God: http://www.preceptaustin.org/attributes_of_god.htm

 

Thanks

Thanksgiving is the expression of a grateful heart toward God for what He has done and for what He is going to do.

1 Th. 5:18:  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

 

Confession

Confession is agreeing with God about my sin; it is my response to His holiness.

Proverbs 13:8: He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy

 

Ask

Petition is my response to the power and wisdom of God, who is our Heavenly Father. I ask specifically and He answers specifically.

 

Intercede

Intercession is my response to the love of God for all people, especially those in His family. My desire in intercession is to turn my concerns for others into prayer; to enter God’s heart for the world.

 

Longing

Satisfying one’s longing through the work and person of Christ and through the process of daily fellowship with Him. Psalm 42:1-2, John 7:37-39, Jeremiah 2:12-13
