“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks
in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in
Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
The Tuesday Prayer Group
Let’s get together to pray for the world-wide church, our home church, the United States, nations around the world and our local communities.
Every first Tuesday of the month, we will meet at noon in the parlor at the church. Because we will be meeting at the noon hour, everyone can bring a sack lunch. We can eat together after we finish praying.
We as a congregation can pray as one. As I look at the conditions of the world, this nation, and THE CHURCH of Jesus, I am convinced that we need to pray. -Elder Wilma Hemphill
Prayer request?
The Lord is omnipresent—meaning He is in every aspect of our lives, whether in times of trouble or triumph (Psalms 139:7-10). Prayer is a belief that God can be petitioned to intervene in the laws of nature as well as a multitude of ways in the everyday lives of His people. Prayer is vital to the life of the believer.
Please complete the prayer request form and your prayer request will be delivered to our prayer chain. We are here to share your burden and intercede on your behalf.

Close in Prayer

          Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.  Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever.   Amen


Christians are sent to prison and labor camps, where they are starved, overworked and tortured. The government’s requirement that all North Koreans act as informants applies even to families, as children are taught to spy on their parents from a young age. Therefore, North Korean Christians must be extremely careful in what they say, what they do and even how they pray. When a Christian is discovered, the government punishes the entire family in order to incentivize reporting. Despite the threat of persecution and heavy social pressure, Christians in North Korea hold firmly to their faith. Christian and secular analysts estimate that about 30,000 Christians are currently suffering in prison and labor camps.
