prayer ministry

We seek to mobilize the body of Christ at Saint James UMC
as a House of Prayer as we humble ourselves, seek His face,
and pray His prayers in complete unity.

Prayer Room

Every Sunday morning during worship services, a prayer partner is interceeding for the service and all those in attendence. They are also available before, during, or after the service to personally pray for individuals with any prayer needs. Please come to the prayer room at the back of the Worship Center or ask one of our pastors if you'd like prayer.

Connection Card

Write our your prayer request on the bottom of your Connection Card (on the Pulse) and drop in the basket during offering. Prayer requests will be posted on the Saint James prayer chain which is emailed out to the Saint James body three times a week.

Mondays -12:00pm & 6:30pm

Anyone is welcome to come together and join in prayer for our church, community, and special prayer needs. We meet in the prayer room (outside door located behind Connection Point) weekly during spring and fall semester at 12:00pm and 6:30pm with a time of praise and prayer.
