As a church family, we need to always be depending on the Lord. We understand that unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain that build it (Psalm 127:1). And we believe that the effective prayer of a righteous person can accomplish much because our God delights in hearing and answering the prayers of his people (James 5:16).
How this Prayer Wall works
You can choose to post your requests by name or anonymously, and, if you choose the “Email Me When Someone Prays” option, you’ll receive a notification each time someone lifts you up in prayer and clicks on the “I PRAYED FOR THIS” button.
Recommendations for Prayer Time
- Pray Alone: Our Lord encourages us by his own example and teaching the importance of personal time with God and praying in private (Mark 1:35; Matt. 6:6; Luke 9:18).
- Pray Out Loud: We recommend praying out loud if possible, as this will help you stay focused in your time of prayer and mitigate mental drift. Christ prayed out loud while he was in the garden in time of great temptation (Luke 22:39-46). Verbally meditating on Scripture and recounting your prayers to the Lord is helpful.
- Pray Using Your Whole Body: Prayer demonstrates dependence on the Lord. Physical kneeling, lying face down, standing and lifting hands before the Lord in a humble posture are possible outward expressions of our hearts as we worship and honor the Lord. These various outward acts can help us set our focus on the Lord in times of prayer (2 Sam. 7:18; Psalm 95:6; 2 Chron. 23:30; Dan. 6:10; Matt. 26:39).
- Pray with a List and Pray Scripture: Pray with a list using Scripture to guide you so that you have a plan and know the specific things that the Lord encourages you to pray. This helps you prioritize the Lord’s interests and prevents you from neglecting certain areas of life. Below are some recommendations for time in prayer.
God to be glorified and honored in the world (Ps. 57:5; Matt. 6:9)
Unity in the church (John 17:20-23)
Salvation of the lost as God’s word goes forth through the preaching of his word about Jesus Christ (Isa. 55; Rom. 10:8-13)
Wisdom, knowledge, and insight to discern the times and please the Lord in our decisions with reopening our church (Phil. 1:9-10; James 1:5)
Leaders of local, state, and federal government (1 Tim. 2:1-2)
Daily provision for needs (Matt. 6:11; Phil. 4:19)
Open doors for effective ministry to share the gospel with boldness and clarity (Col. 4:3-4)
Forgiveness for sin and protection from temptation (Matt. 6:12-13)
Perseverance, strength, and healing for suffering (Col. 1:12; James 5:15)
Personal holiness and to bear much fruit (John 15:8; Gal. 5:22)

My dad has been healthy and active but in March was diagnosed with kidney disease and started dialysis. In June, he was diagnosed with CIDP (an autoimmune disease that attacks his nerves) and now cannot walk or care for himself. This morning they took him to the emergency room for pneumonia in one lung and fluid. We are praying for wisdom for the doctors; healing, improved strength and mobility for dad.

My husband, Steve, has recently been diagnosed with Crohn's disease. It is currently controlled with medicine, but we need to have a real doctor appointment soon. This diagnosis was confirmed through blood work. He struggles with other physical issues resulting from a broken hip two years ago and constant back pain I ask prayer for Steve as he deals with yet another physical trial and me as his caregiver and wife.

We took Graham to the ER last night; today Graham is being admitted to Peyton Manning children’s hospital for inflammation around his liver. Please pray!
6/23 UPDATE @ 5PM: "Thank you for prayers today! We are so thankful tests show function of liver is good. Continued prayers needed for healing of inflammation of liver, as this goes hand in hand with Graham’s heart issues. There will be LOTS of follow up tests from here but we get to go home tonight! All glory to God for getting to go home and for the army of prayer warriors He has provided!"
[Editor's Note: Graham was the child referenced in the Father's Day video this past Sunday (https://bit.ly/3fNfJxN) who has had severe heart disease since birth and subsequently multiple heart surgeries.]
