Why We Pray

It is a great privilege to pray; to bring before a God who deeply loves us, our cares, needs and requests. We believe that when we pray, God hears, and because we have prayed, we have advanced God’s purposes into desperate situations. We can pray personally and privately, and as a faith community, across our campuses we can pray for each other. We welcome your requests and you are also invited to pray with us.
I prayed for this

Prayed for 22 times.


Please pray for a miracle for my amazing dad, Tom B. Primarily for his brain to be healed & recovered, all the cancer cells cast out of his body, and to be brought to consciousness. Also for his lungs and kidneys to be healed.

My dad has been in a coma for 2 months after suffering 2 strokes due to a bleed from surgery to remove a grade 4 cancerous brain tumour. The average lifespan for someone with this cancer is 2 years, surgery doesn't cure it, just buys some time. Chemo can't start until he wakes and is off dialysis, and chemo's been delayed 2 months, we will wait for him to wake but cancer won't. His brain may also be degenerating, which is catastrophic…. If he wakes he'll have disabilities from the stroke but we don't care, so long as he can grow old and share all the experiences he is meant to with us.

My dad is the most beautiful soul I have ever met. So kind, compassionate, strong, with an infinite capacity for love, so intelligent, wise, adventurous, optimistic, selfless, giving and so humble. He is the centre of so many lives and has the most incredible ability to spread light to those around him, it just draws people in. He can relate to anyone, treats all people with an open mind, love, and respect. He has a way of making every problem seem small and will be there to support you always. He can fill a room with such joy and laughter that you can forget all your worries. Before the surgery, my dad said he wanted to spend his time doing good. He wants to help those who can't help themselves and make up for some support and love he feels he failed to give. He deserves a second chance to do that.

I don't ask for these prayers for myself, but for my dad, who lay alone, unable to move, speak or reach out to those he loves, while he feels heartbroken, depressed, and scared for his life and his family.

We ask for no prayers for ourselves. Many ask God to give us peace and joy but this can't until he is happy, healthy, and home. Thank you so much
