LBC & Community Prayer Ministries
|Intercessory Prayer Ministry (IPM)||A 24-hour ministry of intercession before the Lord on behalf of our church, its ministries, staff, and members; foreign and home missions; and our community, state, nation, and world. Praying for revival and spiritual awakening, for the spread of the Gospel, and for the salvation of souls is the heart of the IPM. Your time commitment can be just one hour per week.|
|Prayerwalking Ministry||Prayerwalking is praying at the actual place we desire our prayers to be answered. It is done quietly and reverently in neighborhoods and at specific sites in small groups (2-4). Simple verbal or silent prayers are prompted by the Holy Spirit and all that is seen as we are “on site”. There are three opportunities for prayerwalking involvement: 1) Our neighborhoods; 2) Area schools; and 3) On a national or international mission field.|
|Ministers’ Prayer Partners||LBC members may choose to pray for a minister on a daily basis and/or serve on a team that prays during the worship services once a month in the Open Door Prayer Room. An orientation session before beginning is required.|
|Men’s Tuesday Night Prayer Group||Men meet every Tuesday at 7 p.m. to pray in CHB room 208.|
|Open Door Prayer Room||The Open Door Prayer Room is a room on the first floor of the Adult Education Building set aside for prayer by individuals or prayer groups.|
National & Global Prayer Ministries
|Missions Prayer Team*Not meeting currently||Our oldest known organized prayer group consists of anyone who is committed to a specific corporate prayer time on a weekly basis. A wide age span participates, and all are blessed when short-term mission teams are commissioned before departure and then share after their return how prayers were answered on the field. Intercession includes requests from missionaries worldwide, mission teams from LBC, and concerns for mission matters generated within LBC.|
|Global Missions Prayer Ministry*Intercessors commit to one hour or one-half hour weekly in the Global Missions Prayer Room, or to serve as a substitute. Contact us for more.||Designed to support the work of LBC’s local, national, and international partnerships through intercessory prayer, this ministry also provides prayer support and encouragement to our own LBC missionaries on the field, or those who are in process or just returning from field service. Via email, we receive urgent requests and praise reports daily. As we intentionally target areas with prayer, we expect to see God move and do miraculous things.|
