Praying the Lord’s Prayer

Written by Staff on May 1, 2015 – 9:21 am -

 

Karen Peck & New River Releases Highly Anticipated Album, PRAY NOW

Karen Peck & New River Releases
Highly Anticipated Album,
PRAY NOW

In respect of the upcoming National Day of Prayer on May 7, 2015 and the release of Karen Peck and New River’s album and video, Pray Now, we have posted this devotional on the Lord’s Prayer by Lorraine Walker and Stephen Widener. We encourage you to visit Karen Peck and New River’s website and view their video, “Pray Now.”

 

For several months now I have been praying Our Lord’s Prayer as part of my daily devotions. God has been teaching me and I’ve been trying to comprehend at least part of what Jesus was saying when He gave the disciples this prayer in Luke 11:2–4 and in Matthew 6:9-13.

 

I asked my friend Stephen Widener, an assistant Pastor in Lenoir, North Carolina, to give his thoughts as well. My prayer is that this will lead you into your own study as we take a deeper look into these words from our Lord.

 

Stephen: “Let me say this, it is the model prayer of how we’re to pray. The Bible clearly says to pray without ceasing (1 Thess. 5:17). God wants to have an intimate relationship with us, as He did with Adam in the Garden of Eden before Adam sinned. This is why God sent His Son, Jesus to bring us back to the Father, God Himself.

 

“When you’re intimate with someone, not in a sexual way, but have a relationship where you talk consistently with them, it creates a special type of intimacy. That is what God wants and that’s what prayer is: talking to a Holy, Sovereign God. You are special to Him.

 

“Prayer is not getting God to do things for you, even though He wants to, but getting you to do His will. (v.10) His will does not go against His Word. When we are praying, we are to pray specifically.” Read more »

A Note From Karen Peck

Written by Staff on April 2, 2015 – 11:49 am -

A Note From Karen :)

Hey Friends!

So many of you have been asking about Rickey. Thank you all for the prayers. We can definitely feel the strength and peace from the Lord. Honestly, we could not have made it this far without prayer. Rickey began his treatments on March 3. He started feeling the side effects from the chemo and radiation well into his second week. I remember thinking about how in the world he would make it seven weeks when he was already having difficulty swallowing. It has been a major challenge for him but he is plowing through it with the Lord’s help. As his caregiver, I have never experienced anything so heart riveting. Watching my husband struggle has been very difficult. I can’t fix it. All I can do is pray. The best way that I can describe it is, right now we are right in the middle of a storm. The waves are raging all around us, but Jesus is in the boat with us. Very soon the waves will calm and the storm will pass. Until then, we will keep moving forward. One of the many things we have learned from this trial is that God is bigger than cancer!!! He is not surprised or taken aback by our circumstances. We are very thankful that He is with us every step of the way.

This week we celebrate the most powerful time of the year, Easter. Thank the Lord for dying on an old rugged cross for us, that we may have eternal life. On the third day He arose from the grave!! Now He sits at the right hand of the Father and He intercedes for you and me. Thank you Jesus!

Have a wonderful Easter :)

Karen

Karen Peck And New River Releasing New Single To Radio

Written by Staff on February 23, 2015 – 11:36 am -

Karen Peck and New River 2015-5Dahlonega, GA (February 23, 2015) Dove Award winning Gospel Trio, Karen Peck and New River is ready to release the first single from their new project Pray Now. The single is the title cut of the album and encourages all of us in times of trouble to Pray Now. The single is set to be released this week by Daywind Radio.

“Pray Now” was written by Karen Peck Gooch, Michael Farren and Dave Clark. It was inspired by Karen feeling a strong urgency to pray the Lord’s Prayer and hoping to inspire others to pray in their times of struggle when they are facing life’s biggest storms.

Karen Peck stated, “Over the past year we have said the Lord’s Prayer every day. Sometimes several times a day. We can honestly say that it has strengthened our prayer lives immensely. When we recorded “Pray Now” we had no idea what we would be facing now. The song is very timely. We pray that it will encourage people to keep praying and believing the Lord for great things ahead.”
Please help Karen, Susan and Jeff spread the word by using this suggested Hashtag for social media: #PrayNowLordsPrayer .
