The New Life Church Prayer Team is a group of volunteers devoted to promoting prayer in and by New Life Church and it’s members in a confidential manner.
All Christians should pray, as Jesus encouraged when on earth in various times and settings in the gospels, including Luke 18:1 where he gives a parable indicating we should pray and not faint. Paul in his letter to Romans also encourages us to pray continuously (Romans 12:12). As such one of the goals of the prayer team is to promote and encourage individual church members to develop their prayer lives through providing prayer opportunities and aids. Making prayer become a habit of church members will strengthen both the church and the individual member in the spiritual battle Christians are involved in.
The prayer team come together and alongside individuals to intercede for needs of the church, it’s ministries, individual church members and our communities. In addition, under the leadership of the pastoral team they minister in corporate prayer times.
Aspects of the corporate prayer include:
Praying for individual church members with their needs at the end of each church service (listen for the announcement at the end of service stating prayer team members are coming forward to pray with people)
Weekly Tuesday evening prayer meetings (7-8:30 pm) with focus on the church ministries, special events, needs and pastoral team
Worship and prayer services as organized by the church
Times of fasting and prayer as led by the pastoral team (congregational or specific to prayer team)
We also spend time praying in the prayer room during services asking for God’s anointing on all who minster
The prayer team also prays for individual prayer requests during the week.
