Church Prayer Meeting is conducted Wednesday evening from 6:30 – 7:30, Sunday morning from 9:00 am to 10:00 am, Sunday evening from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm and Saturday morning from 9:00 am to 10:00 am. You get the point . . . We take prayer very seriously here at The Sanctuary. Alycia is in charge of our prayer ministry and helps organize special prayer events, 24 hour prayer chains, emergency prayer chains and more. The prayer room is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Alycia ensures that the prayer team members are current on all prayer needs, along with weekly updates to prayer requests and answered prayers. She updates weekly, our power point presentation that runs 24/7 in the prayer room. This presentation contains pictures, needs and prayer requests submitted to her and the team. Every family in the church has their picture placed in the presentation as a reminder to those who are praying. One of the more involved functions of the prayer ministry is the weekly “Prayer Mantle Exchange.” Each week a different family receives the prayer mantle as a reminder to pray for our Pastor and his wife. A small ceremony is conducted every Sunday evening to make the exchange from one family to another. It really is quite a special time. Alycia and her team oversee all the unique and innovative programs developed by the prayer ministry team.
