Prayer Partners

Of all the resources we have and need, you can understand that the most important is prayer.  We are actively accepting and seeking new prayer partners for our organization. 

James 5:16 (NKJV)  Confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

 Prayer is one of the greatest gifts man has been given by God.  Everyone can pray.  It requires no special skills and no more than the Bible for instruction.

The most commonly asked questions are below.

What do I pray?   You don't have to go into an elaborate speech to have an effective prayer.  Look at 3 John 1:1-3 when John addresses his friend Gaius. The Elder, To the beloved Gaius, whom I love in truth:  Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. The prayer sounds just like talking to his friend because he is doing just that.  We pray in Jesus' name because He is the intercessor for people's sins in front of God. Jesus should be addressed as a friend. In 1 John 5:15 are these affirming words, And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. This means that we know God hears us as we pray.

How do I choose who to pray for?  Read 1 Timothy 2:1, I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone (underline added).

Sign up to be a Prayer Partner

You may send as much or as little information about yourself as you would like.  I will hold Prayer Partner Support Group meetings monthly to help with the stress and questions which may arise.  Remember the person praying needs prayer too!  If you provide me with your first name and email address, I can send updates or information.  I will not give out your information.  If you want to be anonymous, you may be a silent Prayer Partner.  God hears you whether I know your name or not.  You can always contact me by email if you would prefer, rather than attend Group, but remember that someone may ask a question in the meeting that will be helpful to you and your question may help other Prayer Partners.

Please send the following information, by email, to be added to our Prayer Partner rolls.  You may cut and paste the questions to your email message.

Name: First, First and Last or nickname, if you prefer.
