Midweek Prayer Ministry

Midweek Prayer Ministry

Why Pray?

In our congregation, we emphasize the necessity and the value of prayer. We know that we have not because we ask not!  

On Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. we commence the service with hymn-singing and an opening prayer. We read scripture and draw out some salient lessons to stir our hearts to pray. We announce prayer needs and encourage all to participate in prayer for the life and witness of the church.

Our pastor is encouraged when God's people call on the Lord to empower him to preach and teach the Lord's word. 

We pray for the sick, the elderly, and those who need to be saved. We pray for our community and our country as well as our political leaders as commanded in 1Timothy 2:1-8.

1Ti 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
1Ti 2:2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
1Ti 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
1Ti 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
1Ti 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
1Ti 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
1Ti 2:7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
1Ti 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

We invite you to enter into the burden of praying for the Lord's blessing upon the ministry of the gospel.
