prayerJesus set the perfect example of obedience in prayer. Although His day was filled from morning to night with many pressures and responsibilities, such as addressing crowds, healing the sick, granting private interviews, traveling, and training His disciples, He made prayer a top priority. If Jesus was so dependent upon His fellowship in prayer, alone with His Father, how much more you and I (we) should spend time alone with God. At the Laurel Church of Christ, we make prayer a priority through our Prayer Ministry.

These are several ways in which you can support the Prayer Ministry. The Prayer Ministry addresses four areas of focused prayer:

  1. Prayer Partners: Designed for those who want to pray with someone on a regular basis, by phone or other means (e.g., one on one, each day).
  2. Small Groups: Designed for those who want to pray with others in small groups, perhaps on a recurring basis.
  3. Prayer Warriors: Designed for those who want to be identified as such and are willing to pray for others.
  4. Call to Prayer: Designed for those who are interested in coming together, as one, in a specific location, public or private, to offer an immediate prayer for a special event or incident that needs prayer, i.e., the Boston Marathon bombing victims or a family member in crisis.

I encourage you to be a part of this vital ministry. Your soul’s salvation may depend upon it.
