"I prayed to the LORD, and he answered me, freeing me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. I cried out to the LORD
in my suffering, and he heard me. He set me free from all my fears. For the angel of the LORD guards all who fear him, and he rescues them."~ Psalm 34:4-7
Our Prayer Ministry began several years ago, and WHUMC is dedicated to becoming a prayer-saturated church.
As part of the outreach to the Church, the Prayer Ministry collects and distributes shared prayer requests to prayer teams in the Church. The Ministry also maintains a short list of confidential requests, known to just a few people who pray and are committed to keeping the confidence. Some persons on the teams pray at home, others meet on a weekly or monthly schedule to pray as a group.
The Prayer Ministry also prays for every person in our Church (a few each week), and a card is sent to each family during that family’s week of prayer.
A series of booklets about handling grief is given to members who have experienced a death in the family. Other activities include planning prayer vigils and celebrations during Lent, Easter, and National Day of Prayer.
We are a prayer-driven Church praying for our Church, our Community and our World.
