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)

“To pray is to change. Prayer is the central avenue God uses to transform us. If we are willing to change, we will abandon prayers as a noticeable characteristic of our lives. The close we come to the heartbeat of God the more we see our need and the more we desire to be conformed to Christ.”

Richard J. Foster, “Celebration of Discipline”
