Prince of Peace has always been a praying church. Our favorite abbreviation, "POP", doesn't just stand for "Prince of Peace." To us, it also stands for "Power of Prayer!"
At Prince of Peace there are many opportunities for you to pray for and with other believers in Christ, such as:
People Need Your Prayers!
Who from church needs your prayers? Who from your neighborhood needs your prayers? We tend to focus our prayers more on ourselves and our immediate family because we feel powerless to do much else. The truth is that these prayers are very meaningful for you! By praying "outside ourselves," we focus on God's heart and concern for the people who need prayers the most. Think about it: who needs your prayers today?
'Prayer Now' After Each Service
After every weekend service (except holiday services due to increased activity around the altar), someone is always ready to pray with you over your individual prayer needs. Watch for the Prayer Now team member standing near the lectern as soon as the service is over. These prayer times are strictly confidential – what's said at the altar stays at the altar. Please feel completely comfortable sharing what's on your heart. We want you to feel His peace and love, which He promises when we present our requests to God with thanksgiving.
Prayer Requests in Worship
At nearly all our worship services, worshippers may submit personal prayer requests. Prayer request cards are found on the inside of the back cover of our bulletins. The requests are summarized by the pastor and then passed on to our Prayer Ministry to be prayed over throughout the coming week.
When requested, members of the congregation lift up other members with prayers of need or thanksgiving. Prayer requests are communicated via telephone and email.
Many different groups of pray-ers support the life of the congregation. There are pray-ers that meet before each worship service, pray-ers that lift up the needs of the ministry leaders, pray-ers that intercede for the lives and work of the Prince of Peace staff, and pray-ers in the "Prayer Now" program that welcome worshippers at the front of the church after each worship service to pray with them.
The Prayer Ministry meets monthly on Saturday mornings to plan and organize events that highlight the power of prayer in the life of the congregation. Prayer warriors of all experience levels make up this ministry.
Special Prayer Events
Events throughout the year draw attention to and focus on the power of prayer, such as the Good Friday Prayer Vigil, and the National Day of Prayer service and prayer vigil.
