PRAYER MINISTRY is an opportunity for Jamieson members to practice their faith in their daily lives. As disciples of Christ, we want to nurture and support each other and our Church. There are many ways for us to show our love for one another, but Intercessory Prayer—praying on behalf of others—is one of the most powerful. Individuals who volunteer for this ministry receive prayer requests for persons who are a part of or connected to the Jamieson Family and for upcoming church events and projects. Team members commit to pray on behalf of these brothers and sisters in Christ and our church services and activities. Jesus is our model for intercessory prayer. He was an intercessor while He was here on earth. He prayed for the sick and for His disciples, and He even prayed for us when He interceded for all those who would come to believe in Him. What a privilege it is to come to the throne of God Almighty with our prayers for others and for our church. There is a Prayer Request tab on this website to submit your requests to the Prayer Team. For information about monthly prayer meetings, prayer groups, and soaking prayer opportunities, contact Elaine Senz, 434-374-2649, firstname.lastname@example.org
The Clarksville Prayer Box Ministry, an interdenomination group of women in the community, are providing prayer boxes at Meadowview Terrace Nursing Home, the YMCA Complex and the Clarksville Town Office. The prayer boxes will be at the locations by the first week in November. Th;e Clarksville Police station has also approved having a prayer box at the station and will be operational as soon as another prayer box is made ready.With each public prayer box, there will be blank forms for people to use to submit their praises and concerns. The boxes will be collected weekly and prayed over by the Community Prayer Team. People will be able to choose to have only the team pray for the request or it can be shared with local congregations. Our community needs are important to us and more importantly to GOD. If you would like to become a member of this Prayer Ministry, please contact Elaine Senz at 434-374-26
