Prayer is a pivotal part of life at ERBF, a response in a conversation that God initiates with us. Richard Foster writes, "The primary purpose of prayer is to bring us into such a life of communion with the Father that, by the power of the Spirit, we are increasingly conformed to the image of the Son."
He also states:
If we truly love people, we will desire for them far more than it is within our power to give them, and this will lead us to prayer: Intercession is a way of loving others.
We at ERBF show our love for God and our love for others by coming into prayer. Here are some ways we do so at our church.
1. Prayer chain
2. Prayer training
3. Half-day of Prayer
