We have several special opportunities to pray for our church and for one another. Everyone is invited to participate.
Sunday afternoon Congregational Prayer —Pastor Buck
This year the congregation will gather on some Sunday afternoons for a time of prayer together, led by Pastor Buck. Please plan to join us for prayer and music.
Prayers for Faith —Pastor Buck
Pastor Buck Day suggests prayer requests so that we can unite in bringing aspects of the life of our congregation before God. These suggested topics for prayer are listed on this website on the Prayers for Faith page.
Prayer Chain (e-mail or telephone)—Carol Shanholtzer
There is one Faith Church prayer chain and you can choose to participate either by e-mail or by telephone.
• If you choose to receive the prayer requests by e-mail, you are asked to pray immediately when you read the request. Many print out or make notes of the requests as reminders so they can continue to pray.
• One member receives the prayer requests by e-mail and begins the telephone prayer chain. If you choose to receive the prayer requests by telephone, you are asked to pray on your own and to pass the prayer requests on to another member of the chain by telephone.
Prayer Group —Barbara Tenney
A group gathers to pray for Faith Church many Wednesday afternoons at 4:00 pm. If you would like to be in the e-mail group that is contacted about these meetings, please contact Barbara Tenney.
Again, truly I tell you, if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask,
it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.
. . . The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,
and he brought them out from their distress;
he made the storm be still,
and the waves of the sea were hushed.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.
With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you;
He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.
Devote yourself to prayer, being watchful and thankful.”
Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.
Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21 (NASB)
