We, at illuminate church, believe each person is personally called to prayer. So much so, we believe that each person would be a living prayer, in the presence of God, lived out loud. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (NIV) reminds us to “…pray continually”. In other words, living prayer is where we are continuously in a position to hear, believe and obey the Lord moment by moment.

Prayer is not something we do; it defines who we are. We are a praying people. Through prayer, we grow in our personal relationship with God. Through intercession, we partner with God to establish His heart, His will, and His purposes in our families, our church, our city, our nation, and the world. Prayer is engaging, exciting, and rewarding.Wherever you are in your personal prayer life, God wants to take you higher. Prayer is where you build your personal relationship with God by talking with him. 
 The more time you spend with God, the more your faith in Him will grow. God wants to spend time with you.
