Prayer Wall

At the back of our church is a wall we call the Prayer Wall. On it are photos of people who would like to be prayed for. Anyone can have their picture taken after service or bring in a picture if they'd like, and have it posted on the wall. Then, each week as part of the service, the pastor leads us in prayer for everyone on the wall.

I believe prayer is powerful! I want to pray for people, pray for needs, pray for healing, marriages, finances... whatever it is, it needs to be covered in prayer. I've seen God work! I know He hears us! He loves us and He wants us to bring our needs before Him.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. ~Philippians 4:6

Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. ~Luke 18:1

...pray continually ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:17

I have made a Prayer Wall here on my blog. It's nothing spectacular. Believe me, I wanted it to be. But I felt the Lord was urging me to put it up now. Not wait until I thought it was good enough. He doesn't care what my page looks like... only that I'm obedient to Him. It's more important that we intercede for one another than it is for people to 'Oooo' and 'Ahhh' at my page. (Maybe I'll fix it up later...?)

Whenever people visit, I hope they will take the time to pray for those listed. I promise I will do the same. We all need someone praying for us.... interceding and standing in the gap. Let's lift each other up!

If you'd like to add or be added to the Prayer Wall, please send a quick note with the first names of those to be added to or, use my contact page.

I will only publish first names for privacy reasons. That's ok... God knows everything about us already... He's just waiting for us to come to Him.

Thanks for reading and God bless! Mary Ann :)
