Therefore, tell the people: This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘Return to me,’ declares the LORD Almighty, ‘and I will return to you,’ says the LORD Almighty. – Zechariah 1:3
The LORD’s call to His people is always “Come to me” (Matthew 11:28) and “Return to me” (Zechariah 1:3). This is not a one-time profession of faith, but a daily, humble turning to the Lord to know Him better and receive guidance, strength, help and peace. What a precious gift it is to turn to the Lord in prayer, both individually and with others.
Here are several ways to grow in prayer as part of the Knox Community:
