Our vision is:

 

To have a united team of praying people who meet to:

 

  1. celebrate in worship,                                                                                                                                                                             
  2. fellowship in community,                                                                                                                                                                        
  3. grow together in prayer,                                                                                                                                                                        
  4. serve in the prayer ministry.

How to attain the vision?

 

We make it a priority to attend the Wesley Prayer Service, which is scheduled every first Wednesday of the month, for our own edification. Advance notification of the Service can be found in the Wesley Weekly. Prayer Team members will attempt to leave work early to gather about an hour before the service starts to pray for the congregation.



Prayer Team Members will also pray throughout one Sunday service once a month.



Each member is part of a 4-person team of intercessors for the Sunday service. To facilitate unity and participation by all, conversational prayer is used. Team members take turns to lead this meeting.

 

Prayer Team Facts

 

  1. We have about 40 people on board. Members should attend the Saturday meetings for spiritual formation and fellowship. 
                                  
  2. Members' ages range from 20 to 60 years old.

  3. Besides being gifted in prayer, there are some who have prophetic gifts, the gifts of faith, discernment, etc. You may not know what gifts you have, but the desire to pray is itself a good start.                                                                                                                                    

Our Core Values

 

  1. We believe prayer expresses our total reliance on God and our trust that He will supply all our needs. Prayer invites God to move and change things and people in a supernatural way.

  2. We believe that fasting, with prayer, heightens the effectiveness of the intercession ministry.

  3. We believe that holiness should be a way of life in every member of the prayer ministry.
                                                                               
  4. We believe in listening and submitting to one another in love; if there is a disagreement, the team leader will make the final decision.

  5. We believe that every prayer member needs to be in relationship to the others in the community of prayer.
                                                   
  6. We believe that in order to stay healthy, we need to multiply by inviting like-minded pray-ers into the ministry.
                                               
  7. We believe that Celebration, Community, Service and Spiritual Growth are vital elements in our prayer meetings.

  8. All prayer ministry members are covered under the following covenant:

 

Prayer Ministry Covenant

 

As participants in the Prayer Ministry, with God’s help, we will protect the unity and love one another in this body of Christ.

I acknowledge that I need the grace of God to carry out the terms of this covenant, and so humbly ask God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to make this covenant real in my life and in my service to His Prayer Ministry.
