The purpose of the Prayer Ministry is to take our needs to the Lord in prayer and ask Him to intervene in the lives of our families, our church, our community and our nation.  We stand in the gap asking God to help in our times of need and for mercy.

Activities include, two prayer breakfasts per year, praying for requests from women incarcerated, writing notes of encouragement to incarcerated women and contacting and praying for and with women who requests prayer at our events.
