We believe the church gathered corporately in prayer is crucial to the health of the church and is just as important in fulfilling the Great Commission as the preaching of the Gospel, because apart from the Spirit’s work in salvation, no man will ever understand the Word of God as he ought to do. Both the Bible (Acts 2:42, 4:24-31) and church history have demonstrated for us the necessity and blessing of corporate prayer.
During our weekly worship service, we have a time of intentional Confession and Petition to our Triune God. The focus of our prayer is given to us in the Word of God. We pray specifically for the Great Commission, for civil & governing authorities, for church leaders, for other churches, and of course, for one another and the needs within our body. This Prayer Ministry Brochure helps explain more about the priority we place on prayer.
Additionally, during our fellowship meal following the worship service, one of our men will lead us in a time of brief prayer for specific requests among us. Both guests and members will have an opportunity to request prayer for specific needs if they desire to make those known.
