Is there a mountain in the way?
The toughest challenges; the biggest obstacles; seemingly insurmountable problems; all can be tackled, defeated and shifted aside by faith-fuelled prayer. Relational struggles, financial strangleholds, emotional strife; whatever your mountain may be, through prayer, God’s power can move it.
The huge challenges that cast their shadows across our communities can also be addressed through prayer. From her own experience Debra Green offers stunning examples and thrilling case studies.
However, mountain-moving prayer is a lifestyle. It’s a persistent process, not a one-off thing. Sometimes the mountain seems bigger than you have the faith for. Sometimes we can’t hear God or don’t get the answers we’re seeking. What happens when God says ‘No’?

ROC is founded on prayer, which undergirds every project and every decision. Mountain-Moving Prayer arises from this fundamental conviction.
