Pray Unceasingly

In his gospel, Mark gives us a glimpse of the prayer life of Jesus Christ, "And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed." (Mark 1:35). Mark Jones makes this observation about the prayer life of Jesus in his book "Knowing Christ," "Even as the perfect man, he no doubt still needed to pray. A robust, reverential, dependent prayer life was suitable and necessary given the various trials and distresses that he faced as the suffering servant. The Scriptures certainly give the impression that his prayer life was as indispensable for him as it is for us."*

If prayer was indispensable for Jesus, it is indispensable for us and our mission as a family of churches. Therefore, to cultivate prayer among Sovereign Grace churches, we have dedicated a portion of our website to give you a list of prayer requests, by region, for which you can "pray unceasingly." This list of prayer requests will also give you an idea of how God is at work in and through our churches throughout the world. So, join us in praying unceasingly and watch God answer our prayers for His glory.
