"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 Sara, Julie, Sean, Stephen, and Joe to become believers, to repent for their sins, and be delivered from their demons. They have all had issues with pride, selfishness, control , resentment, drug and alcohol problems, disrespect, and blame others for their problems. They are never held accountable for how they treat other people, they blame others for their problems, their actions have hurt others and they never apologize or ask for forgiveness. They've got addictions issues and self medicate rather than address their problems in a healthy manner. Despite these things, they do have kindness in them and have been through a lot of trauma throughout their life. I pray that God would help them with these issues, change their perspectives, heal the brokenness, bring emotional healing, forgiveness, and help them to all accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. Pray that God would bless them, help them, teach them the importance of accountability, to humble them, and bring peace to chaos. I pray that God would bless them and direct their paths for His purpose. Pray that God would help them to reach out to others and ask for forgiveness. Pray that God would also send the right people to them to share the gospel and help them have a stronger relationship to God.

Matthew Graveson, age 16, Alexandria, VA., is in ICU battling COVID-19. He's on a vent and is undergoing dialysis. His mother, Sherry, is the organist at First Baptist Alexandria (Jay's former church). My daughter is friends with them. Their pastor, Don Davidson, is appealing for prayers for Matthew and his family. Thank you.

Please pray for my family and my neighborhood. The neighborhood has been peaceful for many years, but recently there have been three new families. The teens from these families have formed a posse of sorts and have been roaming the streets at night, trespassing on various properties, and committing acts of vandalism. They threw a brick through someone's window, they ice-picked one of my mother's tires and one of my grandad's (which cost my mother an entire day of work hours). We've had security cameras installed and these boys have set them off numerous times, but the cameras have not actually caught the boy's faces and so we have no proof, and where we live our internet connection doesn't work well enough for the cameras to function exactly as they should. Financially, we can't simply move away. We're all stuck here and rapidly running out of options. Please pray that this gang of kids and teens would think about their actions, or that whatever need isn't being met for them that's pushing them to spend their time this way will be met and cause them to change their behavior. Please pray for their safety while they're trespassing each night that they don't get on a snake or run into someone worse than themselves in the dark. And please pray for my family's peace of mind...this is running us all ragged and we're just about at our wit's end.

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)
