We are all called to pray about everything, but for some, intercessory prayer is their primary service to the Lord and to others. If you are a person who often prays for people and places outside of your own family and friends, you may be an intercessor. Intercessors at EVC can serve others and minister unto the Lord in several ways.
“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven". (Matthew 18:19)
This monthly corporate prayer gathering meets on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. We encourage you to be part of the powerful prayers of agreement and flow of the Holy Spirit that happens when we pray together. We pray for EVC as a church and for other concerns that God has laid on our hearts – often our children, families in crisis, health issues, etc.. You are welcome to bring your personal prayer concern for focused, confidential prayer from people who truly care. All are welcome, no matter what your experience. No one is required to pray aloud.
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.
(1 John 5:14-15 ESV)
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. James 5:16 (ESV)
We often see God move in unmistakable and dynamic ways, and people often say that they felt our prayers during times of crisis. This is an ideal ministry for people who love to fellowship with God in prayer, are grounded in His Word, and know Him as the answer to our every need. Prayer Team members are people who have completed the New Member class or have been active at EVC for more than three months, and will commit to pray regularly for prayer needs. Prayer requests and praise reports are compiled into a confidential list that is emailed or mailed to prayer team members every week. In urgent situations, additional emails are sent asking for prayer for EVC families in crisis. Prayer requests are normally kept on the list for three weeks except for critical ongoing needs.

And he was teaching them and saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? ... Mark 11:17a (ESV)
The Prayer Room (103) is open on Sunday mornings during all services. Prayer team members are also scheduled to pray in the Prayer Room during each Sunday service. In this prayer time, we pray for all that the Lord is doing on Sunday morning, salvation of the lost, the prayer request list, and other ways we are led by the Holy Spirit. Some Sunday Morning Prayer Team members also serve as the Guest Central Greeters – welcoming visitors during the time before a service.
