The Prayer Ministry team is inspired by the biblical directive from Jesus in Luke 18:1, “to pray always and not to lose heart.” The team has three areas of responsibility:
- The Prayer Team, which has been active for decades and now has 42 members, receives prayer requests on a regular basis in emails from Deb Wagner
- Prayer Companions provided one-to-one opportunities for congregants to pray with one of the 21 trained team members after the 10:30 service until the onset of COVID-19, and will resume when we return to the building.
- The Lenten Booklet (pdf) tradition, dormant for many years, was reinstated in 2019 and 2020 when a Prayer Team committee solicited and edited contributions from the Westminster community.
The Prayer Ministry would welcome new members; contact Deb Wagner.
