At Holy Cross we believe that prayer is the way that we fellowship with God and also how he ministers to us, and, as a result, much of our Sunday morning worship is prayer, either through liturgy or song. As a church, we want to model, teach, equip, and bring comfort to our church body in prayer and through prayer. We believe what James 5:16 teaches which says that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective and that when we confess and pray for one another that healing can begin. Jesus modeled for us the importance of prayer in times alone with the Father and also taught his disciples how to pray for those in need. We desire to live in this way as Jesus taught us.
