prayer

“For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”  
Isaiah 56:7


Scriptures to guide your prayer

1. Praying for blinders to the Gospel to come off – 2 Corinthians 4:4 “In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”

2. Praying for Hope – Romans 15:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”

3. Praying for Leaders – 1 Timothy 2:1-2 “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.”

4. Praying for Peace – Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Why do we pray together? 

Praying together as God’s people is a deeply held value and a rich tradition here at Valley Fourth Church. Prayer opportunities exist in virtually all of our on-campus and off-campus communities and ministries all week long. However, we set aside a number of opportunities each week and month on-campus to intentionally seek the face of God and bring our petitions before Him in prayer.

Prayer Gatherings

Drawing Nearer

Every Saturday from 8:00am-9:15am a group of women come together for what we call "Worship Based Prayer." This is a meaningful time of prayer where we praise God for who He is and what He has done. If you desire a more intimate relationship with God, come to this Women's Worship Based Prayer meeting. We meet in the Upper Level Conference Room in the CE Building. Come join us!

Before Him

Every Saturday from 9:00am-10:00am a group of men come together for "Worship Based Prayer." This is a meaningful time of prayer where we praise God for who He is and what he has done. If you desire a more intimate relationship with God, come to this Men’s Worship Based Prayer meeting. We meet in Room CE 1 in the CE Building. Come and check it out. 

Engage

Once every month we have an opportunity for men and women to gather from across our congregation to seek God’s face in Scripture-based, worship-driven prayer together.  It’s also an opportunity for you to gather in small groups as well to have your personal needs brought before the Lord, and to intercede for the needs of others in our church family and those in need of the Gospel. Engage is an intimate time of praise and intercession. This gathering happens the last Thursday evening of each month from 7:00-8:15 in Room MP 11 in our Gym building.
