We pray because we believe that it is a great privilege to pray and to bring before God, who deeply loves us, our and other’s cares, needs and requests. When we pray personally, privately or as part of the HeavenBound community we believe that God hears us. As we pray we are advancing God’s purposes into lives and at times desperate situations, seeking always that God’s will be done. We welcome your requests and you are invited to pray with us. We also have corporate (together) prayer.
Prayer ministry is the lifeline of the church. There will be a team of volunteer leaders who will run this ministry with the help of the Lead Pastor. The ministry will consist of:
- Monthly prayer meetings
- A bi-annual 24-hour prayer event
- A quarterly all-night prayer event
- Crisis prayer
- Sunday pre-service prayer
- All Pastoral and ministerial group leaders would also dedicate a day that emphasizes prayer for their respected ministries at least once a month
