Prayer Ministry


The lives of early Christians were characterized by matchless generosity, reliance on God, and a profound devotion to prayer. In Acts 2:46-47, Luke records, “They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”

The Christian movement grew rapidly because of God’s response to the believers’ diligence, passion, and faithfulness in prayer. Jesus taught us in Luke 11:9-10 to “ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” It is because Jesus told us that he will respond to our asking, seeking, and knocking, that prayer is to be a core commitment with Christians and the church. We believe that we express our faith, love, and dependence on God through lives of prayer and worship. Fishers United Methodist Church demonstrates this with its commitment to an organized and faithful prayer ministry.

The mission of the Prayer Ministry is to support the Fishers United Methodist Church community as inspired and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

Prayer Ministry will INTERCEDE to God consistently on behalf of the church leaders and its members. ENCOURAGE, MOTIVATE, and HELP church members to an active life of prayer and to participate in the weekly prayer activities with the ultimate goal of turning God’s House, the church building, into a House of Prayer (Isa 56:7; Matt 21:13) The prayer ministry will conduct prayer classes, meetings, or sessions, and will respond to pray with others in the body of Christ for specific concerns and needs of people within and outside our church community.

For Week Beginning February 23
Just as we set aside time to spiritually prepare for Christmas Day, it makes sense to set aside time to prepare for the two most important days of the Christian year. Lent is a time that offers us an opportunity to come to terms with the human condition we may spend the rest of the year running from and it brings our need for a Savior to the forefront. Like Advent, Lent is a time to open the doors of our hearts a little wider and understand our Lord a little deeper, so that when Good Friday and eventually Easter comes, it is not just another day at church but an opportunity to receive the overflowing of graces God has to offer.
Join together in prayer for this season of Lent:
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the gift of this season. Thank you for knowing our hearts and our need for rhythms in our lives, and for drawing us into a deeper communion with you throughout the coming 40 days. 
Lord, we know that you are in the business of resurrection--your very Son went to the cross to show us that no death is final and that ultimate transformation comes through your gift of salvation. Though we were made from dust, and our bodies will return to dust again, we can live in eternal glory with you through the blood of your Son.
May we remember the gift of salvation in this season...
