The power of prayer initiates God’s loving care in awesome ways. Trust in God and make your requests known – for self and/or others. Our Prayer Ministry offers its prayer support for any need, burden, or concern.

Intercessory Prayer Team

Take It to the Lord in Prayer—That is the mission of the FUMC Intercessory Prayer Ministry, which began in 1995. Our prayer team faithfully responds to the prayer requests—for the sick, injured, and others in need of God’s love. 

Dedicated prayer partners meet and continually pray every day for all incoming prayer requests. Each prayer request is held in private confidentiality.

Upon request, “Notes of encouragement” bring a unique blessing of comfort. Designated recipients receive these notes about the prayers being prayed on their behalf.

If you have a prayer request, please contact the church office or fill out this Prayer Request form

Prayer Blasts!

First United Methodist Church recognizes that there are times when members want to get a prayer request out quickly and to as many persons as possible—through email and/or social media. For those prayer needs, please use this prayer blast request.

Prayer Shawls

Members crochet shawls while praying over them. These shawls are delivered to those who are in the hospital or homebound due to illness. A special prayer is said over each item while being made and before being delivered to the person in need.

Prayer Garden

You are also encouraged to use the FUMC Orange Prayer Garden anytime the church office is open (Mondays-Thursdays 8:30 a.m.-noon and 1-4:30 p.m. and Fridays 8:30 a.m.-noon).
