Prayer Ministry

What is the District Prayer Ministry?

One of the most important things we do is pray for one another.  A district-wide prayer ministry started in 2007 so churches could pray for each other on a rotating weekly basis.  Each year a special prayer calendar has been made for each church.  To view and download your church’s 2018 calendar, click on your church’s name below.

Each week, you are assigned a church to pray for and another church is assigned to pray for you.  Pray for the church’s pastor(s) and church leaders.  Pray for the church’s outreach and service ministries.  Pray for unity and love within the church’s membership. 

Here are some specific ways to carry out this prayer ministry.  1. Each week in your worship bulletin print the name of the sister church you are praying for then lift that church in prayer during worship.  Also print the name of the church praying for you.  2. Send a card to the sister church you are praying for.  Place the card on a small table near your sanctuary entrance so members can sign it before and after worship.  3. Publish your prayer calendar in your church’s newsletter.  4. Post your prayer calendar in a prominent location in your church.  5. Contact the pastor or leaders of the church you will be praying for to ask for specific prayers you might lift for them.

To learn more about the sister churches you are praying for, click on a church’s name on your calendar.  This will take you to the district website and information on each church.
