Prayer Ministry

 

The Prayer Team has adopted the following vision:  "The Providence Prayer Team will seek God's power and leading in partnership with other ministries.  Our prayer team will encourage, establish, and support prayer opportunities that will teach, encourage, support, and empower God-honoring prayer by and for every member and guest of Providence CRC.  In faith we anticipate wonders, miracles, strength, and unity that God will provide." 
 
Our mission is "Getting people excited to pray."  Using the verses from Ephesians 3:12-21, we seek to do the following:
-Teach by example, knowing we are earthen vessels, that "in Jesus and through faith
  in Him we may approach God with freedom and confidence."  (vs. 12-16)
          - Help others see how much God loves each and every one of mankind.  It    
           "surpasses knowledge!"   (vs 17-19)
          - Praise and seek God "who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or
            imagine!"(vs. 20-21)
 
Members from the congregation have used the team’s practical material in a very practical way:  Since the Prayer Corner Prayer Promises have come out in the bulletin, one member cuts it out and tapes the verse of the week to a piece of paper, then adds people's names to pray for along with their requests.  He tucks this in his wallet and as he walks along or even as he travels during the week, he always has this list to refer to and the verse to memorize as he spends time with God. 

 

 

WEEKLY PRAYER CORNER

Be blessed to know you are
God’s beloved
 

Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all you who remain of the house of Israel, you whom I have upheld since you were conceived, and have carried since your birth.  Isaiah 46:3

 

Here are 2 testimonies from those who have participated in this prayer time.

"Wednesday Morning Prayer is my favorite time of the week. Sitting in the sanctuary talking to God without distractions is so special for me. I wish it was offered every day."

 

"I really enjoy picking up the Wednesday Morning Prayer Guide off the prayer table each week so I can dwell with it in my own prayer time".
