North Naples Men are committed to growing deeper in their relationships with God and building friendships.
North Naples Men meet for a prayer breakfast every Thursday at 7AM. Below please find a summary from this week’s conversation.

Do you have to follow a process or perform a ritual like baptism?

Abraham at 75 trusted in God and followed.
Moses trusted in God and led a nation out of captivity. King
David was as human as anybody and more self-centered and corrupt than most.
But he listened to God for wisdom, and when he fell, he fell before God for mercy and grace.

We want directions and steps to follow and words to say but its not about what we say or do. Its about who God is.
We just gotta have faith.
“The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” Psalm 145:18
Lord God, I trust You but help me to trust You completely.
