Prayer Requests

posted Mar 27, 2020, 12:55 PM by James Christensen   [ updated Mar 27, 2020, 7:30 PM ]

"Do not be anxious about anything. But in every situation, by prayer and petition -- with thanksgiving -- present your requests to God" (Philippians 4:6, NIV).

Faith Church takes prayer seriously. Our Sunday worship is structured around prayer -- prayers of invocation, confession, intercession, and thanksgiving -- and we encourage our members to pray "without ceasing" (1 Thess. 5:17), enriching their spiritual, emotional, and physical lives through constant contact with God.

We invite you to join us in our daily life of prayer. If you have specific requests for which you would like our community of faith to join you in praying, here's a place where you can let us know. You can ask for prayer assistance from the pastor, from our Prayer Team, or from the entire congregation. You can submit as much or as little information as you wish, and your requests to the Prayer Team or Pastor will be held in confidentiality. If you need us to contact you, please let us know. God bless you.


A Prayer for Our Times

Laura Kelly Fanucci, “Prayer for Our Times”
When this is over, 
may we never again take for granted:
A handshake with a stranger, 
full shelves at the store, 
conversations with neighbors, 
a crowded theatre...
Friday night out, 
the taste of communion, 
a routine checkup, 
the school rush each morning...
Coffee with a friend, 
the stadium roaring, 
each deep breath...
A boring Tuesday, 
Life itself.

When this ends, 
may we find that we have become
more like the people we wanted to be...
we were called to be....
we hoped to be 
and may we stay that way...
better for each other because of the worst.
