Prayer Ministry

“Who you become is determined by how you pray. Ultimately, the transcript of your prayers becomes the script of your life..”
— The Circle Maker, Mark Batterson

The First Baptist Prayer Room

We at First Baptist Church believe in the importance and power of prayer.  Because of this, we have a room dedicated for prayer and a team that is committed to pray for anyone or any event that has been submitted to them.  We welcome your prayer requests.  All prayer requests will be kept confidential unless permission is given to share with others in our church.  Our team would also like to have an address, email, or phone number for the purpose of corresponding with those for whom the prayers are offered. Our team will keep the prayers active for 30 days unless they receive an update asking for more time or with further information.  They would also love to hear about answers and praises from these prayers.

There are several ways to submit your requests for prayer:

Dedicated email the Prayer Room -

We have a prayer box located in the main floor 3rd Avenue side.  You will see the beautiful box and prayer request forms on a table.  Fill out the form and leave the request in the box.

There are prayer request forms on the backs of the pews in the Sanctuary.

Call the Prayer Room and leave a message.  This is a confidential line.  Only the volunteers in the Prayer Room can access the messages.
