“Pray unceasingly.” Does this mean you never get off your knees? Of course not! Rather, the writer of First Thessalonians leads us to experience unceasing prayer as a lifestyle living constantly conscious of God’s presence and our own and other’s needs. Prayer is like a magnet that draws the one to the other. We know prayer is powerful. Join us in any of the following ministries.
We believe prayer is vital to sustain the Christian life, both personally and collectively. A prayer chain is activated when a member calls the church with a specific, often confidential, prayer request. Prayer cards in the pews allow you to share a prayer request with the congregation on Sunday mornings. Call the office at 847-255-5112 if you would like to join the chain or desire a prayer for yourself or others.
Do you want someone to pray with you? Partners in Caring assure you of the truth of scripture that when we don’t know how or what to pray for, “the Spirit will intercede for us with sighs too deep for words to express.” Ro 8:26. Call the office for more information.
Our Sunday Worship Celebrations include prayers of praise, confession, petition, and thanksgiving.
An area to record your prayer request is found on the perforated flap in each Sunday’s bulletin. Tear off the flap, fill it out and put it in the offering plate. As appropriate the pastors include them in staff prayers and may incorporate them in future worship services with permission. You can also submit a prayer request online here.
