Prayer Ministry

Prayer Requests

Every week, Christ’s people at First Presbyterian Church join together to praise him and ask for his tender mercies on behalf of others. These are lifted up not only during worship services but also in our Sunday afternoon "Hour of Power" in Dunham Chapel at 5 pm each Sunday and also by elders and staff throughout the week.

If you have a praise or prayer request, please fill out a Prayer Card located in the pews or use the convenient form below. You may place it in the offering plate during worship services or in the Prayer Box located across from the Connection Center in our Sanctuary building. You may also email prayer requests to Jim Solomon or Laura Shaw and indicate whether or not you would like your request added to our weekly email received by dozens of prayer partners. 

Prayer Room

Just to the left of the elevator in the Sanctuary building, we have a wonderful Prayer Room staffed on Sundays following the 9 am service (usually about 10.15 am) with one or more pastors/elders along with others who are willing to intercede on your behalf.

For more information contact Jim.


Prayer Gathering

Every Sunday at 5 pm in Dunham Chapel we enjoy an “Hour of Power” during which ongoing requests and new concerns are lifted up to our Lord in a safe, uplifting and comforting environment. Come join us when you can!

For more information contact Jim or 225.387.0617.

Prayer Partners

Each Friday morning, praises and prayers are emailed to those who join us in asking God to intervene in the trials and triumphs of our people. If you would like to be added to the list of recipients, please contact Jim ( or 225.387.0617).

Prayer Events

From Prayer Walks to Prayer Retreats, we continue to plan events that will allow our people to become all that we were created to be in the realm of our communication with God.

Contemplative Prayer Group  

Come join us every other Monday from 10 am to 11 am as we begin the week with Katie Forsthoff and Kristen Carney leading us in contemplative prayer. We take time to listen to the Holy Spirit in seeking the guidance, forgiveness, empowerment and direction of our Holy Father in the name of the Holy Son, Jesus Christ Our Savior, in line with His Holy Word, the Bible.  

Although this group is currently made up of only women, we hope to also begin a co-ed group! For more information, please contact Katie at 404.518.9765.
