Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
We are committed to becoming a "pray first church". Our first response is to commit every situation to God. We also want to learn to be a "listening church", people committed to hearing from God, not simply dumping our shopping lists on him. As we grow in our communication with God, we anticipate seeing him work dramatically, transforming our lives and the lives of those we pray for.
Have something you need prayer for? You can let us know in the following ways...
- Email to email@example.com
- Call our telephone prayer chain coordinator, Mary Braun, at 604.859.6679
Note: As these requests will be shared, please indicate how broadly you would like your request to be broadcast (staff only, Elders and staff, prayer chain).
Interested in receiving the prayer requests? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org (email or text) or Mary (telephone).
Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. James 5:13-15
If you have a specific need that you would like the Elders to pray with you about, contact Lesley at the church office (email@example.com or 604.852.1001). She will contact you and arrange a time for you to meet with them.
