Encounter believes in the power of prayer.

“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of Him”
1 John 5:14-15

Led by Pastor Bill Rieser, we gather in prayer with one another to demonstrate and strengthen our belief and faith in Jesus Christ. We know that God hears our prayers and if we are righteous, faithful, and ask in accordance with His will, our prayers will be answered.

“confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed”
James 5:16

We believe that by gathering together and sharing through prayer, not only are we confessing to God, but to each other. By praying for and with each other we gain forgiveness and healing.

For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.
Matthew 18:20

While solitude and prayer time with God is important, it is also important to pray with other believers and for other believers. Please pray with us to strengthen and deepen your relationship with God and the Encounter community.
