Pray With Us



PRAYER INITIATIVE: ONE MINUTE AT ONE

In this time of social distancing in a world-wide crisis, let's join together, wherever you are, in prayer each day at 1:00 PM for one minute (or more). During this One Minute at One we can unite our hearts together in prayer for our church, our community and our world.

In a time of great anxiety, the Bible offers a spiritual prescription. The Apostle Paul says in Philippians 4, “Don’t be anxious about anything; rather, bring up all of your requests to God in your prayers and petitions, along with giving thanks. Then the peace of God that exceeds all understanding will keep your hearts and minds safe in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)

Prayer prompts and prayer requests for the One Minute at One will be posted to Facebook and updated here each week. You might also want to use “The Lord’s Prayer” during that time. Uniting our hearts together in prayer is the least we can do—or maybe it’s the most we can do.

How can we be praying for you? Share a concern or celebration by submitting a
prayer request.
