Prayer Vision Statement: To help accomplish our church’s vision to connect with the Living God, with one another and with the world for whom Christ died. We pray for the needs in the family of God and provide prayer opportunities to develop a deep and intimate relationship with the Triune God.
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” (1 Timothy 2: 1–2)
FPCB is a compassionate and faithful community of believers, and your concerns and needs for prayer are very important to us. We encourage you to reach out to us—visit, call or e-mail us—so that we can come alongside you in your faith journey.
Prayer requests can be made in several ways. One way is through Connect Cards that can be found in the Sanctuary pew racks or by the prayer box outside of the Kirk Center Rotunda. Write down your prayer request and place the Connect Card in the prayer box at the rear of the Sanctuary’s center aisle or in the prayer box outside of the Kirk Center.
In addition to the Connect Cards, you can make a prayer request known by calling our church office and speaking to a pastor or prayer ministrant. You can also
Trained prayer ministrants can be made available in the prayer room and at the monthly Healing and Wholeness service. After receiving a prayer request, we will offer prayers on your behalf to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
A group of approximately 75 people will offer intercessory prayers on behalf of your prayer request. Each member will remain faithful in praying for you over a two-week period. Your prayer request is always kept confidential.
Prayer Concerns List
A weekly publicized list of names is made available to the entire congregation to use during their prayer time. The list can be found in the information rack outside of the main church office and Kirk Center Rotunda, North Link, and the Prayer Room. Names are listed for four weeks.
As prayer requests come to pastors via Connect Cards and other means, they are lifted up during their weekly meeting and during their personal prayer times.
Our Prayer Room is available for you whenever the church is open. It is located in the Narthex area in the back of the Sanctuary.
Experience a quiet and sacred time alone or with pastoral staff or trained prayer ministrants. Additionally, prayer forms such as Lectio Divina, Breath, Centering, etc, are featured regularly in the Prayer Room. Stop in and spend time with God.
Healing and Wholeness
This is an informal service held in the Chapel on the third Sunday of every month immediately following the second traditional worship service. A team of prayer ministrants will be available and will collectively pray for any concern you bring.
“Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.” (James 5:13-15)
