The Power Of Prayer --- Prayer, Prayer Request, and our Prayer Chain at Mathews United Methodist Church  

The biblical story tells us that God has placed prayer at the very heart of life in a unique way.  Even with power and sovereignty residing in God, God has chosen prayer as the means for interacting with Godís people. Jesus himself, in addition to teaching often about prayer, modeled it as a radical dependence on God for everything.  He prayed to know God; to know Godís will, to have the power to do that will, and to have the perseverance to complete his ministry and mission.  Even for Jesus, prayer was the very source of life in every circumstance.  (See Pray the Price: United Methodists United in Prayer by Dr. Terry Teykl, published by Prayer Point Press, Muncie, Indiana, 1997.)

We have made prayer an integral part of our life, worship, and spiritual growth at Mathews.  We begin every week with prayer at the altar prior to Sunday school.  We have a prayer cell that meets every Monday morning at 10:00 AM to pray for the ministries and needs of Mathews, as well as lifting up the needs of our community, nation, and world.

We also have an active Prayer Chain that is activated whenever anyone in the church or community requests special prayer.  In just a few minutes, numerous prayers are being lifted up for these special needs.

If you need would like for us at Mathews United Methodist Church to pray for you or for a loved one, or you would like to make a prayer request known, please do not hesitate to let us know.  You may contact Dr. J. William Harris or call the church office at (864) 227 - 2963 Monday - Thursday, 9 am - 12:00 Noon Eastern Time.
