Prayer Ministry

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Colossians 4:2 (NIV)

Prayer, the spiritual practice of conversing with God, involves both speaking to God and listening for His response. Prayer is vital to everything we do as a church, and our desire is to make dependence on God through prayer foundational to our church.

The Prayer Ministry has several aspects, and we welcome your participation in any of the prayer initiatives.

Prayer Chain is made up of active church members and regular attenders who receive requests by email. When you make a request of the Prayer Chain, each member of the chain prays for that request. Requests for the prayer chain are for those who attend Church of the Good Shepherd, members of their families, and for people closely connected to us. 

Worship Prayer TeamThis team has been on hiatus due to the pandemic.  It is our hope to start up this prayer service again.

Two people from the Worship Prayer Team are available during Eucharist, and immediately following the service, to pray with anyone for healing, thanksgiving, intercession for another, or anything that is on their heart that they would like to lift to the Lord in the presence of another.  All prayers are held in confidence.  All members of the Sunday prayer team receive training.


The prayer team recognizes the fact that God works in our lives in many ways, both privately, deeply within us, and corporately, as we are ‘members one of another’.  An individual requesting prayer may ask for privacy, and that request will be respected.  At the same time, we affirm our bond as a community in Christ, in which the natural out-flowing of our prayers is a reaching out to one another in loving concern and follow up.
