Prayer: The Grand Means of Drawing Nearer to God

Founder of the Methodist Movement, John Wesley said: “Prayer is certainly the grand means of drawing near to God, and all other means are helpful to us only so far as they are mixed with, or prepare us for, this.” Surely the Lord invites His people to draw near as also spoken through the prophet Isaiah: “Call on Him now while He is near.” (Isaiah 55:6b)

In the Global Methodist Church, we believe the Lord answers when we call to Him in prayer. The GM Church seeks to saturate our Methodist movement in prayer at every level of development for guidance, wisdom, and empowerment. You are welcome to join us on this journey as we draw near to the heart of God in prayer.

We encourage you to explore our resources on this page and to discern how God may be calling your local church to become a “house of prayer”.
