Prayer at LUMC


Prayer allows us to connect and form an intimate relationship with God. Prayer is the means be which we can share our life with God. By entering into this conversation with God, our relationship with God grows deeper and more intimate so we can begin to give "all" to Him and trust in His love.

Prayer is our opportunity to offer to God praise, thanksgiving and supplication. and a quiet time to listen to what God is telling us as we ask His will for our lives.

Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. - Philippians 4:6

In addition to Sunday School and Worship, other opportunities to share prayer times with members of LUMC:

Prayer Box Ministry

Located outside the church on Fort St. our prayer box reaches out to the community to offer a place to share what is on their hearts. Community and church members can drop their requests in this mailbox. A Wednesday Evening Bible Study group prays over all requests that are left in the box.

Prayer E-Chain Ministry

An opportunity to discover who needs your prayers in our church family and in the wider community.   Daily emails are sent to those who are part of this ministry. If you wish to be included in this vital prayer ministry, please email Diane Crosby and ask her to add your name to the list.


Other Methods of Prayer at LUMC


Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer is a method of prayer, which leads to a deeper relationship with God.  Centering Prayer moves one from more active modes of prayer into receptive prayer, resting in God.  Centering Prayer is a relationship with God and a discipline of prayer to foster that relationship.  It is Christ-centered in its focus, and builds communities of faith and bonds the members together in charity.

Gathering Time: Friday's, morning at 7:00 am in the Susanna Wesley Prayer Room.
