"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Philippians 4:6-7

Our Prayer Ministry consists of a group of Prayer Warriors who lift up the needs of our church, our community, our nation, and our world. We would consider it an honor if you would allow us to prayer for your special need. 

In addition to praying for special needs, we also want to make an impact by praying for the spiritual awakening of our families, our friends, our nation and our world.

Will you join us in answering the call?

Please pray for God’s deliverance, salvation, freedom, grace and mercy. Pray for discernment, wisdom and understanding for our leaders and their advisors. Pray for increased faith, for repentance and revival of the church and all God’s people who are called by his name. Pray all God’s people would repent, humble themselves, seek God’s face and pray so that Jesus would come and heal our land. Pray for miracles of freedom, deliverance and restoration.

Since Jan 4th, I’ve had symptoms of the flu or easily covid. There are days when I’m in bed most of the day and all night. Fever, loss of appetite, congestion, many of the symptoms. Pray God will strengthen my body and fortify my immune system to fight this. Pray for supernatural wisdom for my immune system and by body in this battle. Pray God will fully activate and mobilize my entire immune system to war and defeat this, overwhelmingly. Pray my immune system will learn and grow through this, to develop durable, robust immunity to this! Finally, pray I will be strong and alert for the 2+ hr. drive (each way) to get my covid PCR test, and arrive safely and get accurate results to the test. It’s the only one I could get so soon. Pray that the healing will be complete by the scheduled date to get tested, and that I will receive a TRUE NEGATIVE, because I’m between jobs, single and by myself, and can’t financially afford being quarantined 2 weeks. I’m concerned I’ll lose my apartment if I test positive (but God is good), because of the quarantine time, preventing employment to pay rent and bills. Pray that through these trials, God will cleanse and purify my heart, remove sin issues, draw me closer to Him, deepen my faith and strengthen my prayers. Pray God will fulfill 1 Pet 4:1-2 in my life “he who has suffered in his body is done with sin…(and the rest).” Thanks.

For a friend: My husband is in the hospital with a severe injury and he is in a coma. I have two daughters and I need your prayers. Prayers for miracles for my husband so that he and I can see and our daughters can too and we can testify to the Lord's miracles here on this Earth. Please pray that His strength will be our strength and for His divine provision all over my husband and us in ways we don't even know we need it.

Please pray for my friend Jaime. I met her a few months back and she started coming to church with me. She has been sick for a few days and went to Pri-Med yesterday. They gave her an appointment for 4:00. She went back and was lying sick in her call for 3 hours. They finally took her in and her blood pressure was sky high. They did the test on her and told her it would take 15 minutes for the results. It was closed to 8 when she called me last night crying. They told her they could not give her the results until she seen the doctor and their were 9 other people before her, it could be 10 before she got the results. She said she could not stay any longer she was so sick. She asked if they would text her the results and they said no. She would have to wait. She left crying and called me again. I told her I had a test kit at home and would come and test her. She was positive. She has a bad heart and high blood pressure. Please pray for her. I was very careful when I helped her with the test but I am staying home until I find another test kit for myself. Thank you... Love Dolly

Please lift up an unspoken request - God knows. Please pray God move every mountain in the way of his will today in all areas in Jesus name. Pray for all of God’s promises to come to pass and for healing, grace and mercy. Pray to walk in faith, hope, love, joy, peace and freedom. Pray for protection and against every scheme and plan of the enemy for me and my family, and that my loved ones be saved, freed, healed, and delivered to praise, worship and serve God in Jesus name.

Join us for prayer in the main sanctuary the 1st Wednesday of every month!

Order of Corporate Prayer

  1. Praise/Thanksgiving – Time to thank God for what He has done for us. A time of dropping off the cares of the world and beginning to concentrate on our gratitude for His goodness to us as we prepare to enter into His presence.  This is a good time to read a Psalm of thanksgiving. (An example is Psalm 100.)
  2. Confession – Confess our sins to God and asking His forgiveness according to 1 John 1:9 and/or Psalm 51. The Word says God can’t hear our prayers if we harbor wickedness in our hearts (Psalm 66:18).
  3. Adoration – A time of praising and then worshipping God for Who He is!!! (Revelation 4:8,11).
  4. Protection – Put on our spiritual armor before entering into intercession (Ephesians 6:10-18).
  5. Intercession – Time is very limited (50 minutes) so our prayers on each subject should be limited to 1 to 2 minutes. Incorporate God’s Word into our prayers as much as possible (Isaiah 55:11). The focus of our prayer time is: church, pastors, spiritual awakening and the lost.

This prayer time is dedicated to the Lord. We honor Him by:

  • being on time  
  • putting the needs of others above our own (Philippians 2:3-4).
  • praying in unity (Romans 15:5-6)
