Prayer Ministry

Supporting the body through the power of prayer.

Prayer Ministries at FUMC

“Again I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” — Jesus

Matthew 18:19, 20

Our Goal:

Prayer Team strives to intercede on behalf of the people and ministries of FUMC- Jacksonville in the name of Jesus Christ.

…wrestling in prayer for you, that you may stand firm in all the will of God, mature and fully assured.

Colossians 4:12


Our Format:

Prayer Team is based on a four-step one accord prayer:

  1. Honor the Lord with praise.
  2. Expose your sins through silent confession.
  3. Appreciate God with thanksgiving.
  4. Request God’s help and presence.

Prayer Teams

Personal Needs Prayer Team:

Fridays at 10:30 a.m. – Room 191

This group prayer ministry prays both scripturally and specifically for the personal needs and concerns of friends and family of FUMC.

Prayer Request Box is located on the table outside the sanctuary.

Pastoral Prayer Hedge Ministry

Two opportunities for the congregation to uphold our pastor in prayer.

  • Pastoral Prayer Hedge Journal: Support our pastor through your personal prayer time.
  • Through the use of the monthly Pastoral Prayer Hedge Journal participants can help establish a “hedge of prayer” around our pastor. The journal enables individuals to pray in agreement with others by following the daily scripture based prayers.

    The journal is prepared monthly and available the last Sunday of the preceding month.

  • Pastoral Prayer Hedge Group: A time of group prayer. Meets Tuesdays at 6 pm in Room 178 of the Adult Sunday School wing. This is a Spirit-led one-accord time of prayer.
  • FUMC Prayer Chain

    The Prayer Chain is available for immediate prayer needs. Call Billie Nielsen (903-586-4288) with prayer requests. Confidentiality will be respected.

    To join the Prayer Chain call Billie Nielsen (903-586-4288).

    FUMC All Access Prayer Team

    Trained intercessors are available to pray with individuals before and after Sunday worship. Team members can be identified by a yellow “How Can I Pray for You” button.
