Intention Toward Prayer

Oasis Center 1031 South Euclid Avenue, Sarasota, FL

It is me standing in the need of prayer
You are invited to pay attention to and set an intention toward prayer.  Tuesdays in February (7, 14, 21, and 28) at 1 pm in the Oasis Center and zoom, there is an opportunity to both be in prayer and talk about prayer.  The sessions will be recorded, posted to YouTube and Facebook so you can watch when convenient.  In this month, as we celebrate Valentines Day, the gift of God’s love sweeter than chocolate, more abundant that those heart-shaped hard candies, and reminder each of us that you are named and known by God as “Beloved”.  Please contact Pastor Wes for the Zoom link.
