“And I tell you, Ask,and it will be given you; seek, and you will find, knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”
– Luke 11:9-10
The Prayer Ministry Team consists of a group of individuals organizing prayer times, and communication of prayer needs throughout the congregation. There are two main opportunities in this ministry, the Prayer Chain and the Weekly Prayer Group.
This phone ministry was initiated by Marge Harr and has been continued under the direction of several members of the church.
Prayer requests are directed to the church office. The office manager will then call the first person on each of three lists (prayer chains) as well as Pastor Jim.
Each of these persons then calls the next person on their given list.
In this way, prayers go up for each request from at least 19 individuals.
Anyone wishing to be involved in this ministry may contact the church office at 935-5451.
Weekly Prayer Group
This group has been in existence for approximately 3 years and currently meets at 10:00 A.M. every Thursday in the church library to pray for special requests along with prayers for our Pastor, our Church and our world.
While we are currently following the ACTS formula for prayer (Adoration, Worship, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication), we are flexible.
We are seriously considering an exploration of our methods and our motives, so that we can be more effective in our intercession and truly experience the promises of Jesus – that “Where 2 or 3 are gathered together, there He is in the midst” and that if we ask anything in his name, He will do it.
We incorporate the weekly prayer requests presented in the bulletin and those contributed during worship into our ongoing list of needs and concerns. Confidentiality is a priority.
Requests may be placed by contacting the office.
Requests may also be written on one of the prayer request forms and placed in the prayer boxes near the entrance to the sanctuary.
Please consider joining us at 10:00 A.M. on Thursdays!
