Prayer is the foundation for the life of a disciple of Jesus because it fosters a relationship with the living God.  Prayer teaches us to hear the voice of God and lay down the burdens of our hearts before our creator.   In prayer, a child of God gains access to the throne room of God and invites the power of the kingdom of God to be released in our own lives and the lives of others.  Learning to pray, therefore, is essential for any disciple of Jesus.

Pastoral Care Ministry

Our pastoral care ministry provides prayer and support to those suffering from sickness or a debilitating condition or those who find themselves in a time of hardship or difficulty.  If someone is in need, the pastoral care team seeks to be a source of encouragement and care.  If you are interested in becoming part of this ministry, contact Carol Davis at cadavis42@earthlink.net.

Intercessory Prayer Ministry

Our intercessory prayer team provides prayer to undergird the church and its people in its work of mission in the world.  Prayer teams intercede during our services, pray for the leaders in our church, pray for important church events, and pray for those in need through the prayer@stjchurch.life ministry.  For more information contact Donna & Jim Buehner at buehner@earthlink.net.

Healing Prayer Ministry

God heals today!  If you have a physical, emotional, or spiritual need, the healing prayer team will pray for you.  At the conclusion of each of our services, there will be teams at the front where you can receive prayer.  You can also set up an appointment for an extended time of soaking prayer.  For more information contact Donna & Jim Buehner at buehner@earthlink.net.

Weekly Monday Prayer Meeting, at 6:00 pm

Communal prayer, where the whole church gathers, is particularly powerful.  Each week the church gathers to pray for the church, our leaders, our ministries, our nation, and the people of St. James.  We ask that every member of St. James participate at least once per month.
