“I will make them joyful in my house of prayer … for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.” – ISAIAH 56:7
The Knox Prayer Ministry promotes prayer church-wide by encouraging and organizing prayer opportunities and providing training on prayer. Each prayer group is open to new members and is an opportunity to bless others and grow in relationship with the Lord. Each group holds prayer requests in confidence within the group and acknowledges that the power and work of prayer is that of the Lord Jesus Christ and not our own.
Knox Ministry Prayer Groups
Are teams that commit to pray as part of a group for the leaders, needs, and work of a ministry they are particularly passionate about. We currently have five Ministry Prayer Groups that meet every other month:
- Children’s Ministry (meets the third Tuesday of every other month).
- Marriage and Family Ministry (meets the second Tuesday of every month).
- Missions Ministry (meets the second Wednesday every other month).
- Women’s Ministry (TBD)
- Youth Ministry (meets the fourth Tuesday of every other month).
