WHERE THE SPIRIT IS ALIVE
Jesus is here now before you!
Salvation is a free gift from God.
Open your heart and call Jesus and pray to Him as below sincerely.
"Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner. I believe that You died on the cross for me to pay back the penalty of my sins and came alive on the third day.
Jesus, I open my heart and surrender to You and receive You as my Lord and Savior. I will be obedient to Your Word. Lead my life from now on. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!
(Rom 10:13) for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
If you have prayed above prayer from your heart, your sins are forgiven and you are a son/daughter of God.
You should attend a church and worship God. You should learn Bible to know how to live new life in Christ, a life of joy and new power as a child of God.
You may make your prayer requests to the church at 973 398 0846 or contact Pastor Jeong at e-mail email@example.com or cell phone 908-265-2766
Please be as specific as you can. God bless you. We will assume you wish your prayer request forwarded to our prayer chain, unless you indicate a desire otherwise.
Please pray each day for West Side, and for the community of believers who gather there. West Side needs your prayers.
We do not cease to pray for you and your spiritual growth, and for God’s blessings upon you.
Bring to God all that is in your heart.
Prayers can’t be answered unless they are prayed.

For a word about prayer from Pastor Jeong, visit him at “Meet Our Pastor” on this website.
SPEAK WITH GOD. IF YOU DON’T, HOW DOES GOD KNOW YOU CARE?
You learn to pray by praying.
Don’t worry about exact wording, or phrasing. Talk with God.
God has a plan and you are part of the plan. How will you know what it is? Is your prayer life intimate and on-going?
Jesus instructed us to pray, “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.” At the center of the Lord’s prayer, which Jesus taught us to recite, lurks the unnatural act of forgiveness. - - Jesus hinged God’s forgiveness on our willingness to forgive unjust acts.
Phillip Yancy, “What is so amazing about grace”
Every morning surrender you life to Jesus. When you pray for yourself or others do you ask God to help you and them become more like God? Do you seek to grow in the Fruit of the Spirit: Love: Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Gentleness, Generosity, Faithfulness and Self-control.
God has a plan, and you are part of that plan. How do you know what it is?
GETTING STARTED WITH YOUR “PRAYER LIFE”?
LET’S ALL AGREE THAT WE WILL PRAY EACH DAY FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES. 15 MINUTES ISN’T MUCH OF THE DAY.
IN THE MORNING COMMIT THE DAY TO JESUS. ASK FOR GUIDANCE AND FOR STRENGTH TO LIVE AS JESUS WOULD HAVE YOU LIVE
AT NOON RECOMMIT THE DAY TO JESUS
IN THE EVENING BEFORE YOU GO TO SLEEP THANK JESUS FOR BEING WITH YOU THAT DAY. SPEAK WITH JESUS ABOUT “HOW THE DAY WENT”.
