"Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer."         (Romans 12: 12)


We consider prayer to be POWERFUL!

During each and every worship service, there is always a special time for intercessory prayer.  There are prayer request cards that can be filled out during the service and collected by the ushers during the offering.  During the prayer time, the pastor will call for prayers from the requests written on the cards.  The pastor will also ask for prayer requests from anyone in attendance.

 If you would like the pastor to pray with you or for you, or if you would like a prayer request added to our prayer chain,

call the office (281-463-7701)

or send us an email

Intro: Each person participating in the program would be assigned a prayer partner to pray with regularly.

Rationale:  While the pastor was sick during the summer, one thing he noticed was how uplifting it was to have someone as his unofficial “prayer partner” who specifically prayed for him.  Both of them had been texting and praying for one another since the pandemic began in early 2019.  Previously, the Core Team discussed a woman that one member met who left her “very nice church” because she felt she was not growing spiritually.  A new “Prayer Partner” program might be one way to address this issue.


  1. Each person would meet with their prayer partner at their own convenience.
  2. Each partner would also meet in whatever manner would be most comfortable to both partners (in person, via phone, via Zoom, using phone texts, using emails).
  3. Each participant would agree to confidentiality unless otherwise given permission to share information.
  4. Participants in the Prayer Partner program will grow in their prayer capacity, as well as in their own spirituality.
  5. The Prayer Partner Program will continue through the end of December at least. In January, we will reassess to see how things are going and possibly move some partners around.  We hope to continue this program through the 2023 Lenten season.
  6. Participants will be mindful of Scriptures that advocate praying often for God’s help and support. (see list of Scriptures that follow)

“So, I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Of if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”  Luke 11:9-13

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.”  Philippians 4:6-7

“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”  1st John 5:14

“’Have faith in God,’ Jesus answered. ‘I tell you the truth. If anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”  Mark 11:22-25

“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”  Matthew 18:19-20

“Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again, he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.”  James 5: 13-18

“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.”  Romans 8: 26-27
