The Holy Spirit Intercedes
Do you feel like you don’t know how to pray or what to pray for? You are not praying alone! The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit helps us and prays for us, according to God’s will. And Romans 8:34 tells us that Christ Jesus also intercedes for us. How encouraging! Take a moment now to pray, knowing you have help. If you would like the Cross of Life pastors, staff, and members to pray with you and for you, please contact the church office.
