Prayer Chaplains

When in-person services resume, Prayer Chaplains offer one-on-one prayer during Sunday morning services. Before each Sunday service, a Prayer Chaplain is available to pray with you by the Prayer Corner at the rear of the Sanctuary. After each service, Prayer Chaplains stand in the front of the Sanctuary and by the Prayer Corner, ready and waiting to pray with you.

Prayer Chaplains receive extensive training. When you pray with a Prayer Chaplain, he or she will:

  • Hold a sacred, prayerful consciousness
  • Listen lovingly to your prayer request
  • Pray from the heart, knowing the Christ within does the work
  • Release your request to God, knowing the healing, loving, peaceful power of Spirit is present at all times, in all situations
  • Hold your prayer request in confidence
  • Provide information, when asked, on resources for counseling or other assistance

Prayer Chaplains do not counsel or advise, fulfill the role of a personal confidante, discuss your prayer request with others, or make judgments about information shared with them. For more information visit the Prayer Chaplain page.

The Prayer of Truth

        As the light of God we shine
        As the love of God we embrace
        As the power of God we stand in Truth
        As the presence of God we radiate love
        Wherever we are, God is
        And all is well
