If we call upon the name of the Lord and come to Him in prayer, God listens to us. (Jeremiah 29:12). Prayer is freely given to us by God, which is why prayer is the most intimate form of communication that directly connects us to God on a personal level.
Prayer is spiritual communication between people and God, a two-way relationship in which we should not only talk to God but also listen to Him. Prayer to God is like a child’s conversation with their father. It is natural for a child to ask their father for the things they need.
There are many promises in God’s Word to encourage us to pray, such as:
The Scriptures tell us that we are to pray for one another and also assure us that God hears and answers our prayer.
When you receive Christ into your heart, you become a child of God and have the privilege of talking to Him in prayer at any time about anything. The Christian life is a personal relationship to God through Jesus Christ.
Here at Kemptville Pentecostal Church we offer various ways to get involved in prayer or recieve prayer.
We as a church believe in prayer and would love to pray for you. We have a group of people who have committed to praying for those in need through our Prayer Chain. Let us know what we can pray for and we would be honored to do so.

The importance of prayer is often overlooked. Most of us just pray for God to help us, or to bless us. And most of the time because of our busy lives, prayer is like an afterthought. But why is prayer important? In fact, what is prayer?
Christian prayer is our way of communicating with God. Just like how a child talks and listens to their father, prayer is how we as Christians and children of God converse with Him. And everyone’s conversation with God is different. That is why prayer is the most intimate form of communication that directly connects us to God on a personal level.
Praying to God is simple – all you really have to do is speak to Him with a genuine heart. And the Bible also makes it clear that prayer is really that straightforward. If we call upon the name of the Lord and come to Him in prayer, God listens to us. (Jeremiah 29:12). Prayer is freely given to us by God, which is why we need to understand the importance of prayer.
Hudson Taylor quote captures the true importance of prayer – “When you work, you work. But when you pray, God works.”
Do you realize God desires for you to know him?
It's not just about head knowledge, like passing an exam or winning a trivia game. No, this is about KNOWING Him personally through a deep and meaningful relationship. We will explore the names and attributes of God which reveal who He is and His character.
Jeremiah 29:12-13 (ESV) - Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.
Psalm 25:14 (NIV) - The Lord confides in those who fear him;
he makes his covenant known to them.
Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV) - Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
On this side of Heaven, it is impossible for our human minds to fully comprehend God’s infinite and awe-inspiring nature. In the Bible, however, He has shared enough truths about Himself to draw us into faith and worship. God has chosen to reveal his character to us in the Bible through various names and attributes that show us what kind of a God He is.

As you prayed through the names and attributes of God for the last 30 days, you probably noticed how many passages of Scripture unpack each name and attribute. Sometimes there was even a story that accompanied a name or attribute of God. To get you into the habit of noticing how Scripture describes who God is please read a portion of Psalms 145 from below. Can you find the names an dattributes of God in this portion of Scripture?
PSALM 145:1-7 (NLT)
1 I will exalt you, my God and King,
and praise your name forever and ever.
2 I will praise you every day;
yes, I will praise you forever.
3 Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
No one can measure his greatness.
4 Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts;
let them proclaim your power.
5 I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor
and your wonderful miracles.
6 Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue;
I will proclaim your greatness.
7 Everyone will share the story of your wonderful goodness;
they will sing with joy about your righteousness.
We encourage you to explore the rest of Psalm 145 for more names and attributes so you can continue to grow in your relationship with God the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit. Let this be the start of noticing the names and attributes of God throughout His Word.
