Prayer Room Ministry

This is an ongoing ministry opportunity. A powerful way to impact the Kingdom is to sign up for a weekly hour in the church-wide Prayer Ministry.  There is a room dedicated for prayer intercessors to pray for requests around the world.  You will soon put your own trials behind you as you begin praying for those who are physically ill, in personal distress, those who have lost love ones, our military, missionaries around the globe, local church ministries, etc.  There is an easy systematic method for praying through this variety of needs. Attending a quick orientation will prepare you fully.  We ask that you select an available hour and you come to the prayer room each week during that hour to receive incoming prayer calls, pray through requests, and write prayer grams to anyone God places on your heart.
