Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who his sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous person has great power. — James 5:13-16
We believe that God uses His praying people to exercise much of His will upon the earth. Prayer is powerful, when offered in agreement with God’s will, and He uses it to accomplish much in our daily lives. Hope Presbyterian Church encourages its member families to be in regular prayer for its members, friends, and any others who have needs.
This section of Hope’s website seeks to enable our members, and anyone else who has a request, to submit a prayer need or praise to our church office for the use of our pastors and elders in prayer. We long to serve people in difficulty through this vital ministry of intercessory prayer. If you have a prayer request for a member of our staff or an elder, please type your request and e-mail it to Hope at email@example.com. Let us know if you would like your request to remain confidential. Requests we receive that are not marked confidential may be included in our e-mail prayer ministry notices to our member families who have committed to pray for intercessory requests. Confidential requests are viewed only by our staff and elders.
