Prayer Ministry

 
Prayer Warriors
The Prayer Ministry is made up of prayer warriors who are serious about lifting up the needs of the church before the throne of our Heavenly Father. We meet every Tuesday evening at 6:00 p.m. for fervent prayer and also spend time in prayer during and immediately following Sunday Morning Worship Service.
 
Please fill out a volunteer form or call the church office (323-5002) if you are interested in joining our prayer team.
 
If you have a specific prayer request, please contact the Prayer Line at (559) 438-7729, join us for Tuesday evening prayer, or submit a prayer request below.
 
Rev. Nelson Dibie, Minister of Prayer
 
Prayer is:
Communication with God. Because God is personal, all people can offer prayers. However, sinners who have not trusted Jesus Christ for their salvation remain alienated from God. So while unbelievers may pray, they do not have the basis for a rewarding fellowship with God. They have not met the conditions laid down in the Bible for effectiveness in prayer.
 
"Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit." James 5:13-18 (NKJV)
