"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 prayed for this

Prayed for 2 times.


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.

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)
