Prayer is essential!
Prayer is a vital ingredient in all Christian work and ministry. Prayer is our way of communicating with God.
We are told to pray for others and for kings and all those in authority (1 Tim 2: 1-4).
A weekly prayer meeting and breakfast is held at Salt Shakers' office.
We have inserted the following verse in every issue of our monthly journal:
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chr. 7:14
