Prayer Chain

And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  John 5:14
Since its formation in October of 1979, the Prayer Chain has served the congregation by taking to God the individual requests, concerns, and joys that have been made known to members of the chain through telephone calls or personal contact, including requests from the Pastor.

Prayer chain members believe in the power of prayer and the benefits of sharing others burdens, as well as growing in faith with monthly meetings including Bible study and sharing prayer results.  The principles of an effective Prayer Chain are maintained:

  • Members pray immediately when receiving requests.
  • Members pass on the request immediately to the next person on the chain.
  • Members are careful not to delete anything or add to the request.
  • Members are bound to keep the request confidential.

Prayer chain members also organize and conduct a twenty-four hour prayer vigil before Easter, where continuous prayer is maintained in the church sanctuary . In recent years, the National Day of Prayer on the first Thursday of May has been observed with a service for congregation and friends, emphasizing patriotic music, prayer, and the history of our great nation, with prayers led by prayer chain members.

Several of the original prayer chain members continue to serve in this ministry and all participants believe in the power and comfort received by having fellow Christians praying for you.
