Zion's Daily Prayers: WHO? WHAT? WOW! & WITNESS!



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. Prayers from our 24-hour prayer line are added during worship.

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.

Vision for Our Future

Be still. Stop thinking. Allow the Spirit of God to fill you. Listen for God to speak. Watch for God's will to be revealed. Where is God calling you? What is God asking you to do? Where is God calling the West Walworth: Zion United Methodist Church? What is God asking us to do?
