We believe that prayer is simply talking to God. There is no magical power inherent in prayer; rather prayer indicates our dependence on God who, in response, answers with wisdom, knowledge, acts of power and so on. Jesus has called us into a sort of unequal partnership with himself (much like a strong father with very small and weak children). We need him. We depend upon him. Therefore we need to ask him, and share with him, and confess to him, and adore him, and cry out to him. This simply, is prayer.

At Village, we provide many opportunities for us to pray together as a family:

· Thirty minutes before each of the Sunday services
· Times of corporate prayer during the Sunday services
· Friday mornings at 6.30am
· Monday nights at 7.30pm (where we pray especially for Revival)
· Home fellowship groups
· Prayer chains
· Special church prayer meetings
