Prayers and Worship


"For everyone who asks receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." Mt. 7:8 Every prayer is heard and answered. The essence of prayer is to discern God's Will for us in the details of our life. Our Lord leaves clues and leads us gently to a deeper union with Him.
