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 Saturday of each month at 9:00am. We weave worship and powerful prayers of agreement together as we pray for God’s work in and through EVC and in His Kingdom beyond our own community. You are welcome to share your personal prayer concern and receive focused, confidential prayer from people who truly care. You are welcome – from seasoned prayer warriors to new believers. 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)
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 need. Prayer requests and praise reports are received through our website and on Connection cards on Sundays. We compile the requests into a prayer list that is emailed or mailed to prayer team members each week. Prayer requests are normally kept on the prayer list for three weeks except for critical ongoing needs. We rejoice as we see God move in powerful ways and often hear people say they have felt our prayers during times of crisis.

The Prayer Room (102) is open on Sundays morning during all services. A Prayer team member is in the room to pray for anyone who wants personal prayer and also to pray for salvation of the lost, the move of the Holy Spirit during the day’s services and in the lives of the EVC church family.
