Our Prayer Ministry leads the congregation to focus on prayer as the heartbeat of CUMC. Our prayer teams lift up congregational requests submitted to our Administrator of Congregational Life and Event Planner or through prayer request cards in the back of the pews in the sanctuary. Prayer Team members are available to pray with you at the end of each service, and the altar rail is open for personal prayer. Pastors are available to pray with you and your family before surgery or during hospitalization. Hospitals do not call and inform the church, so please contact the church receptionist or a pastor with the date, time, and hospital where you will be having your surgery.
Individuals, as well as groups make the prayer shawls, quilts and blankets, praying as they work to complete each item. The shawls, quilts and blankets are then brought to the church to be given to anyone in need. When a prayer blanket is assigned to a person, the congregation then has an opportunity to go to the altar on Sunday morning and pray for the recipient. May every person who receives a prayer shawl, blanket, or quilt feel the healing power of our God and the love of our congregation as they are wrapped in the warmth of that cover.
Prayer of the Knitter
As I knit this prayer shawl, I pray that the person receiving it will feel God’s love each time it is put around your shoulders. May you feel that God is enveloping you in his mighty arms. May you feel healing in your mind, body and soul and know that you are cared for and loved. God bless you.
