"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?

I just found out I have a small cancer in my right breast. I'm not so worried about myself because I know God is protecting me. But just this week, the father of my two daughters learned that he has terminal liver cancer. Please pray for our family.

I would like for you to join me in praying for my family to continue growing together and fir our health. I would also like to pray for job stability and to be separated from the one part of my job that’s giving me problems . Also I would like to pray for peace and harmony- end racism and division in our country. Bring us all together under one accord. Also last but not least prayers for the ones who are incarcerated that are innocent give them the strength to make it and find a way to find freedom soon.

I ask for prayers for a loved one traveling out of the country for work. For traveling mercies, safety, health.

To be transferred back here working a safer department soon and God to intervene and remove and cancel some awful manipulation and turn this situation around.

I also ask for prayers for God to help me and my dear family with some other urgent issues and needs. To fight these battles... and to have strength and feel better. Aching all over.

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)
