Prayer Partners: Whoever would like to have a prayer partner can ask for one from the congregation or from the community (family member, friends). This partner will pray with you over the phone or in the church or in your own home, regarding any concern or sickness or other problems we face in our lives on a daily basis. This prayer habit keeps people strong and alive in the spirit of prayer. We become spiritually more accountable to each other and faithful. Taking prayer out into the open area. LK: 11:1-13: Choose a park, or a mountain area or a restaurant corner where you can pray with your prayer partner. Choose a time and place that is more convenient for you and your partner.
Prayer Walks: Praying while walking combines physical and spiritual exercise. Whether done alone, with a partner, or a group, prayer-walking involves taking our prayers to the very places where we desire to see God's presence manifested and our prayers answered.
Prayer Retreats: Prayer retreats are designed to replenish and empower each one of us periodically or as needed. The Worship Team holds a fall and winter retreat that is always an important time of renewal for each of the members.
Prayer Shawl Ministry: The prayer shawls that HPUMC women knit and crochet are used for many reasons: for those undergoing medical procedures; as a comfort after a loss or in times of stress; during bereavement; for prayer or meditation; marriage ceremonies; birthing, nursing a baby; bridal shower or wedding gift; during an illness and recovery; ministering to others; graduation, birthday, anniversary, ordination, holiday gifts; or just praying...there are endless possibilities! The prayer shawls are kept in a shelf in the narthex of our church and are there for anyone who would like to take one. Shawls for a specific purpose or of a specific color may be requested.
