"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?

Brenda

My sister-in-law Joyce has breast cancer. She has went through the first of her surgeries and so far so good. Please pray for her well being and for strength. She tells us she feels weak. Also, her twin sister Lois has been having some health issues. Please pray for them.

My husband has had some major dental surgery and he is in a great deal of pain. It should have been on the mend by now, but for some reason he is not healing as fast as they thought. Please give a little prayer for his comfort.

My dear friend Deanna French Storms is also having some serious health issues.

My sister Kim, who is working as a nurse and taking care of our mother. Please pray for health and sanity. Please pray for our mother Margaret.

Please pray for my three nephews. They grew up in church but seem to have lost their way. They are not in trouble, but they don't seem to have the priority of church in their lives. They work too much, play too much and seem to put church by the wayside.

Prayer of thanksgiving for our daughter and son-in-law and our beautiful granddaughter Maggie. We are so thankful for having them in our lives.

Friend of mine, Katherine, grew up in Christian family, but going through life lost she believes and became an atheist. Please, pray so that she would be delivered from false empty teaching that brings nowhere. May God intervene and shine a light on her, as He is forgiving and merciful. May she find a new path that leads to life with God. Thank you for your prayers!

I request prayer that I will recover from an apparent upper respiratory infection that has me in its grips. This has gone on for several days and shows no signs of improvement. I think it was something I caught at the doctor last week. Thank you for your prayers for a swift recovery.

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)
