Pause For Prayer

Pause for Prayer

God’s Word tells us to pray about everything: to pray believing, to fast and pray, to pray without ceasing, to devote ourselves to prayer, to add thanksgiving to prayer, to pray with joy and much more. The various local hosts of Pause For Prayer seek to help you broaden your perspective on prayer and see the world with the eyes of Christ. Pause For Prayer is heard three times each weekday at 7:45 a.m., 11:57 a.m. and 8:55 p.m.
