If my people Pray…

Amazing things happen in and around us when we pray. Prayer gives us the opportunity to talk to God and also hear His voice on the things that matter to us. Join us as we intentionally focus on praying for each other and the world around us. You are welcome to post prayers of request and thanksgiving and take the time to stop and pray for the requests you see and intercede with God on behalf of our brothers and sisters. Join our group, our Facebook community of prayer on www.facebook.com/groups/NZ.If.My.People.Pray
