Connecting to the Power of Prayer


In anticipation of a year of transformation, Garden Ridge is starting 2023 with a prayer project to mobilize the Spirit and focus our hearts to be part of His work.


Each day for the first two weeks of the New Year (Sunday, January 1 - Saturday, January 15), prayers written by Garden Ridge members will be released.

Let's JUMP START the new year by together humbling ourselves, repenting, and seeking God's face in persistent prayer, and together we will see amazing things in 2023!

Day 14
Terry Coulter

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.

We proclaim that we are all children of God. There is no other like You, God. You are the Creator, the life-giver and the life-sustainer. You are good, and as a community, we take our place under our true identity of being Your children.

Day 13
Katherine Gould


We thank You for this new year You have given us with fresh opportunities and new beginnings! You have reminded us in Your Word that we can become a new creation in You. The old things disappear, and all things are made new!

Sara Foltermann

Dear God,

Today, I ask for Your blessing for our aging members. I pray that they be treated with dignity, love and respect. You tell us, through Job, that wisdom and understanding belong to the old. May the younger of our congregation learn from the experiences and wherewithal of those with more than us.

Day 11
Brad Lawing

Wonderful Father,

Group prayer has always been strange to me, but You say, “When two or three are gathered together in My Name, I am there in the midst of them.” So we gather, in Your Name, and I am glad that You are in our midst.

Day 10
Mark Randall

Dear Lord, we are so thankful for the many blessings You continually provide to and for us. We are not always mindful or thankful for the resources You give to us, but thank You for giving us more than we could ask or imagine.

Day 9
Joel Anderson

Dear Heavenly Father,

We are so blown-away by Your overwhelming love and power. Over the years, You have blessed Garden Ridge with so many amazing leaders who have served and given their hearts and time for Your church. For this, we thank You and give You all the glory.

Day 8
Ed DeMatteo

O God Most High,
In the way of our calling, we seek You daily with a wakeful conscience and with purpose.

Though our failures are many, You are rich in mercy.

Day 7
Nelson Starr

Father in Heaven:

We humbly approach You in thankfulness for the many blessings You have bestowed upon our nation and upon us as a congregation at the Garden Ridge Church. We thank You and ask for Your continued blessing...

Day 6

Dear Heavenly Father,

I thank You for today and all the blessings You have provided this year. Thank You so much for Your Son and the never-ending care, love, and protection You provide.

Day 5

Day 4

Lord God,

We praise You because of who You are. You are love, grace, righteousness and holiness, all in one, in a way that we cannot even comprehend. We worship You because You are so much greater than we are. We love You because You first loved us.

Day 3

Ah Lord God! It is You who have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for You. Your works are wonderful! We know that full well!

Please hear our cry for help, for we have put our hope in Your Word. You have all the power. You have all the wisdom. You are the Holy Sovereign...

You are the Creator and Ruler of all, and we honor Your name! Your glory is matchless, and we gladly worship and praise You!

You are everything, and apart from You there is nothing. We bless Your sweet name for the rescue that it brings. Thank You for adopting us and calling us Your own. You are a good and perfect Father...
