Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

James 4:8

Being intentional to fellowship with the Lord – be it while working, resting, playing, serving, mourning, laughing, coming, going, planning, doing, learning, teaching, waiting, eating, drinking – is never a waste of time, energy, thought or talent. It is the abundant life to abide in Christ. It is a life constant in prayer.

Prayer, simply put, is talking to God, but it implies a two way conversation where we are not only actively sharing our hearts, but actively listening as well. Pastor Erwin Lutzer says it this way, “The purpose of prayer isn’t so much to get answers from the Almighty, as it is to have fellowship with the Almighty. Although we come to the Lord occupied with our need, we must leave off occupied with our God.”

At First Missionary Church, we want to be known as a praying church – a church who intentionally seeks to abide in the Lord.

Prayer Teams

We are working on creating a rotation of men and women who would be available to pray with folks after the Sunday morning service. If you are interested in serving as part of a prayer team on a monthly basis please contact Samantha Derby at prayer@firstmc.org.

Stay tuned for more opportunities for corporate prayer and intercession!
