Conley's is a praying church!
We believe that God hears and answers prayer; therefore, we put prayer at the center of our church life--prayer inspires our mission, precedes our decisions, guides our actions, and is offered in praise and thanksgiving for all that God has done, all that God is doing, and all that God will do in the life of our congregation.
We want to pray with you!
Is something happening in your life where you need God to step in? We believe that God responds to prayer--and we would love to pray for your situation.
What can I request prayer for?
Anything at all. Health, peace, relationships, finances, addictions . . . nothing is beyond the reach of God.
Who will be praying for me?
Conley's has a dedicated prayer team consisting of people who love to pray, and stand ready to pray for you.
What if I'm not sure I believe in all this?
Not a problem. God is always more ready to hear than we are to pray. He knows about our doubts, our fears, our skepticism . . . and invites us to come anyway. We believe God reveals himself to us when we pray. Let's pray and see what happens.
What should I expect?
An answer to prayer. We are among countless believers throughout the ages and from all around the world who bear witness to the faithfulness of God to answer prayer in amazing ways.
How do I submit a request?
You may send your request to: email@example.com.
Be joyful always,
pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Strategic Prayer And Revival Committee
Conley's has assembled a team of people who believe in the power of prayer. In addition to their commitment to pray themselves, they work to promote faithful, dynamic prayer within the congregation. SPARC also actively supports prayer events in the Dover District.
The Bible not only calls all of us to pray, but assures us that when we pray together God is especially pleased and responsive to us. Are you ready to answer God's call to prayer? We invite you to join your prayers with those of the congregation in worship. And to pray for the church, its leaders, and its mission regularly in your own prayers.
Below are some of the opportunities for congregational prayer at Conley's United Methodist Church . . .
We collect prayer/attendance slips at each worship service and include each requested prayer concern on our weekly Prayer List.
Our prayer chain--by phone or email--is an important ministry in our church. We pray for those concerns that cannot wait until weekend worship to be submitted.
Each person on the Prayer List is prayed for individually by our prayer team.
We welcome everyone to come to the altar to pray for healing for themselves and for others. NOTE: this practice is suspended during this season of social distancing.
Our Altar Prayer Team prays with people at the altar during church services. NOTE: this practice is suspended during this season of social distancing.
Our prayer team prays with the pastor before each service, and for each service as it is taking place.
The Upper Room Prayer Group meets every Tuesday for prayer and devotions.
Our Prayer Committee (SPARC) meets once a month to plan prayer activities for the church and to pray for the congregation.
Our Prayer Patch Ministry knits/crochets and prays over prayer patches to be given to those in need; just a small tangible reminder that they are loved and prayed for.
SPARC assigns prayer mentors for all new members of the church.
