Join us each Wednesday at 8AM in the sanctuary for a time of focused prayer. We take prayer requests and read over the verse(s) in the prayer guide for the week. Then we take time for corporate prayer. Everyone who like to pray may do so. This is a great chance to learn how to pray and be encouraged by fellow church members. If you have any questions or would like to request prayer, see Bro. Will. Also let us know if there is a specific area that you would like to recommend be the focus of our weekly prayer guides.
If you have a specific need, we encourage you to reach out to your Deacon and Sunday School class. You may also let us know specific prayer requests here. Be sure to note if it okay to share the request with the weekly prayer group.

National Day of Prayer 2024

Join us on Thursday, May 2, 2024 for national day of prayer.
The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.
For more information about the history of the National Day of Prayer, check out the official organizational website.
Just after the Temple was dedicated in Jerusalem, the Lord appears to Solomon and gives a warning about why He has answered his prayer for a place to worship. He tells Solomon to follow God. He and the people of Israel will either be an example for the nations of God’s favor or God’s wrath. In the midst of these directions, we find 2 Chronicles 7:14. Today (and everyday) we choose to serve God and call our nation back to Him in prayer.
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14, ESV


2024 National Prayer

Jesus, we profess our faith in You. You are the Light of the world, and in You there is no darkness. For You are our lamp, O LORD, and our God who lights our darkness. Forgive us for fearing and focusing on the darkness around us instead of being filled with faith and shining like the city on a hill You have called us to be. Forgive us for the times when we have been the absence of light, allowing darkness to dwell in America. Lead us forward to dispel the darkness and bring light throughout the Church, Family, Education, Business, Military, Government, and Arts, Entertainment, and Media.

We are saved by grace through faith, released from the darkness that once held us captive and now free to walk in the newness of life in You. Light dispels darkness and exposes what is hidden and wicked, so we commit to rise and shine! For by You, Lord, we can take courage to run against the enemy, and by our God we can fight the good fight and keep the faith as living lampstands in our communities and country. We fear no evil for You are with us.

Lord, Your way is perfect, You lead us on paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake. Your  Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Your Word is Truth, instructing and inspiring us to live in the abundant life You gave when You saved us from the death and destruction of the enemy. Fill us with Truth as we read, study, and live Your Word.

God, You are a shield for all those who take refuge in You. As we abide in You and Your Word abides in us, we take up our shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God and run boldly into the darkness to Lift Up the Word and Light Up the World!

In the Mighty name of Jesus we pray, amen!
