Through our faith in God, the prayer ministry team extends care and concern for our community through prayer.
People in the congregation and community may submit prayer requests through:
Indoor Prayer Wall
Outdoor Garden Prayer Box
Online request (link to form below)
Monthly prayer gathering between services on the 2nd Sunday of the month
These written requests written are collected by a member of the Prayer Ministry weekly and the team prays for each request for 30 days. The requests in the indoor wall and outdoor box stay in place for 30 days before they are removed, respectively released and shredded.
Prayer requests will remain confidential within the Prayer Team, unless there is an indication on the request that others see it.
Join the Prayer Ministry?
The Prayer Ministry is seeking both support and intercessory roles within this ministry. Time commitments range from ten minutes a few times a week to thirty minutes once a month. We provide training and orientation to learn why and how to pray collectively for a variety of needs.
Through the indoor prayer wall, outdoor prayer box, website submission, pew cards, and monthly Sunday prayer gathering, the prayer ministry intercedes with genuine empathy for the well-being of others. The prayer ministry expresses God’s love by confidentially listening and being present to the needs, concerns and requests of the church and wider community. As a sacred obligation and privilege, we act as conduit standing next to people and God becoming aware of God’s prayer for a person and joining in that prayer.
Join us between services on Sunday, September 15 for a MOtalk explaining this new ministry at Mount Olivet.
Save the date Sunday, September 15 for a Prayer Ministry Training & Orientation from 6-8 pm in the conference room where will cast vision, define roles and expectations, provide teaching and resources regarding praying individually and corporately for others, etc.
