Prayer at Yorkminster Park

Yorkminster Park endeavors to be a people of Prayer. We believe that personal intimacy with God our Savior in prayer is the privilege and responsibility of every believer. We must live our lives through prayer and trusting God!

Prayer Requests
Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.

(James 5:13-16 NRSV)

“Prayer is an attempt to count the stars of our souls. Under its sacred canopy, an oratory of hope echoes the vast but immediate distance between who we are and who we want to be. This peculiar trek sentences its devotees to an arduous discipline. Prayer demands focus and obedience, as well as intimacy and faithful nurture. A certain civility is inherent in this transaction. Its requirements are both communal and individual.”

James Melvin Washington, Ph.D., “Conversations with God”
