Puyallup Nazarene Church
Come, Lord Jesus
The God who reveals himself in Jesus Christ is the God who comes. He does not leave us, abandon us or forget us. Jesus is Lord of all, Lord of life and grace. When he is invited to come, he always comes. Praying the the Prayers of the Journey we can open for us new and powerful experiences with the Living Jesus.
