The Jim Bakker Show and Morningside Church acknowledge that prayer is of utmost importance. Without the foundation of prayer in our life or ministry, nothing of lasting value can be accomplished.
Prayer is the building block for ministry and is essential for the blessing of the Lord to manifest. That is why Pastor Jim Bakker instructed the Prayer Center to pray every work day for the ministry, the broadcast and of course for you our wonderful partners and viewers.
We are here to serve you through the ministry of prayer. In Galatians 6:2 — we are told “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (KJV) Praying for each other is one way of accomplishing this.
Our God is a prayer-answering Father and He is ready, willing and able to help in your time of need. Psalms 46:1—“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble…”
Many requests and desperate calls are received by the Morningside Prayer Center everyday. Each prayer need is prayed for individually whether it is arrives by mail, email, walk-ins or phone calls. Our prayer warriors pray fervently for each need as if it were their own request.
“I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about something and pray for it, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.”
We encourage those with prayer requests to include a photograph so that it may be added to our Wall of Agreement. The Wall of Agreement, located in Grace Chapel, has thousands of prayer requests from all over the world and is available to those who wish to agree in prayer.
What is prayer and why pray?
Prayer has been defined as conversation with God. It is talking to God about anything and everything without fear or condemnation. Prayer is the means to bring God’s will into the earth and into your life.
The Apostle Paul instructs us to pray in Hebrews 4:16 – “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Isaiah 1:18 — “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow…” God hears our every heartfelt cry for His help.
Prayer moves the hand of God. God is All Powerful and All Knowing, yet He choose to work through prayer. Your prayers can affect the lives of others, change circumstances and soften the hardened hearts of people you love. You also learn that you have authority in prayer and can do warfare against the enemy. Most of all, prayer changes you.
God’s will is revealed in His Word. The more you study the Bible, the more you will know God’s will. Jesus was and is the best example of God’s will working in the Earth. As you gain more understanding, your prayers become more effective.
Pastor Jim has taught us to pray laser prayers. Laser prayers are detailed specific prayers that hit the target. James 5:16 tells us…”the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
