Evolving Prayer”

Prayer is one of our core values at Zion. We are always seeking new ways to bring spiritual depth to our daily prayer life, to utilize prayer to draw us more closely together, and to bring us deeper into relationship with God. 

To encourage daily prayer by Zion’s members and friends, we

Take time during Sunday worship to lift up our spoken prayers. A member of the congregation will speak, and the pastor will affirm the spoken prayer by repeating it aloud. Consider balancing privacy with concern; using only first names when ever possible.

Our faithful scribe, Cindy Plotzker, writes down every prayer request. She makes copies for distribution at the conclusion of the worship service. Members and friends in attendance are encouraged to use this list as a daily guide for prayer.

Pastor Todd uses the copied prayer list to update our prayer web page ( ), usually on Monday morning. Encouragement to check the web page are made on Zion’s Facebook page ( ), and, occasionally, by email. Editorial discretion is used by Pastor Todd to keep the list fresh and vibrant. 

Additions and edits to the prayer list may be forwarded to our Lay Leader, Sharon Boyd, or to Pastor Lida, or Pastor Todd. New prayer requests during the week are sent out to the email prayer chain and updated on the church web page as soon as practical. 

Please know that every effort is being made to uphold prayer requests with dignity, modesty, and respect. If there is an error, please bring it to Pastor Todd’s attention immediately so that it may be corrected. 

WHAT? What events, near and far, raise your greatest concerns?

Those impacted by mudslides in California.


People digging out from the winter storm.

People ill with the flu.

American politicians.

President Trump.

Those living with addictions, and their families.
