Join in Prayer

While we are unable to gather in person, we do not need to be limited in our prayer support of each other.  Please use this page to request prayer, report a praise, and to find ways to pray for others.  Your requests and praises will be added to this page as soon as possible, hopefully by the next day.

Our prayer groups will pray over shared prayer requests for 30 days. We invite you to join in prayer online as, together, we believe God for answers to these requests. We also invite you to read the praise reports that people have submitted about God's faithfulness in answering prayer.

"In the process of possibly getting a procedure done to control/treat my Tremors, I'm seeing my Neurologist April 3rd, going to get an MRI of my brain done after talking to a Neurosurgeon last week, and after he sees the MRI, he will let me know what the next step is to get one of two procedures done.  Dr. Tierney feels I have more than Tremors, or something else besides Tremors, but he won't know till after he sees the MRI results."

"HOW TO PRAY FOR ITALY How can Christians in other parts of the world pray for the crisis in Italy?  “Ask the Lord that the Covid-19 challenge may represent a breakthrough for our spiritual asleep country”, says Giacomo Ciccone, President of the Italian Evangelial Alliance. “Pray that a spiritual and social revival with lasting positive effects may happen” and “pray that Italian creativity will prevail against the many challenges we are facing”.

Vero Rossato, a Christian worker living in Vicenza, encouarges Christians to pray that “the Holy Spirit makes people reflect, that hard hearts are softened”. “Pray for freedom from fear, racism, pride (...) Pray that this crisis will not cause individualism and rivalry but solidarity and empathy”. 

People should also pray “for the government”, says Pia Bevacqua,  a Christian worker in Sicily, and “that Italians may receive the light of Christ, understanding that in Him we have life in abundance and peace”.
