Prayer Ministry at Hope Lutheran Church
Prayer permeates the life and ministry of Hope Lutheran Church.
The Prayer Ministry has two areas of concentration: Prayer Chain and Prayer Team
1. Prayer Chain
One option is a Prayer Chain of 61 individuals who receive an email every time a request for prayer is submitted to Hope. Every prayer request is forwarded to the prayer chain, with permission, and those requests are lifted up to the throne of God by the Prayer Chain.
2. Prayer Team
Hope also has a Prayer Team, of 2-3 people who send each member family (10 families per week) an email informing them that prayers will be offered for their family during the week. Families are invited to share any specific or confidential prayer requests that the Prayer Team can lift up on their behalf.
The Prayer Team also plans prayer events that support congregational events and ministries. They also plan special prayer vigils and prayer labyrinths and observes the National Day of Prayer, usually with an all day vigil.
National Day of Prayer
Thursday, 2nd May 2013- The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation.
Uncomfortable in Prayer? At Hope, we’ve designed a Prayer Labyrinth to guide you. Come, be still, pray, be inspired and moved by the Holy Spirit. The Labyrinth is a private self-guided Audio CD tour, through 11 different stations within a maze. Each station helps you reflect on your relationship with God and others around you. The Prayer Labyrinth experience is approximately 50 minutes from start to finish. Childcare will be provided.
