  • Zoom Intro
  • Sacred Gathering

Our Hudson Valley School of Prayer is a sacred gathering to which you can bring your heart’s concerns and find others to lift them up in prayer.

  • Opening Prayer
  • Prayer, as the Language of a Love Relationship (Dave & Julia’s testimony)

Over seven decades, our life has become a life of prayer out of a love relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Out of our walk with Him, we want to encourage you and provide training in helpful tools so that believing prayer is more fully integrated into your life, and you become a living witness to the all-sufficient grace and supreme sovereignty of Jesus Christ in every area of life.

Principle(s) to answer question

  1. Prayer is a mirror of one’s relationship to God
  2. If we love and trust Him, we will draw near.
