Many may think the term disciple refers only to the early followers of Christ. We know that they were a praying, worshipping, loving, giving, and evangelizing group of men who refused to keep the truth of the gospel to themselves. Yet, God still desires disciples today—ordinary people like you and me whom God can use to do extraordinary things.
Prayer is the practice of the presence of God. It is the place where pride is abandoned, hope is lifted, and supplication is made. Prayer is the place of admitting our need, of adopting humility, and claiming dependence upon God.
There are many, many opportunities for prayer at St. John – during worship, individual or through group prayer.
“just as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.’ Matthew 20:28
St. John the Divine is known for doing great things in the community. Lives are being touched and renewed through the selfless giving to others in both local and international communities.
