Congregational Prayer Group

They Raised Their Voices Together in Prayer to God. (Acts 4:24)

Throughout the Book of Acts we read how amazing healings, conversions, rescues and testimonies happen for the Church. These miracles of THE Spirit happen because the people of Jesus relied upon prayer.

We are recruiting people to join together to ask the LORD to empower the ministry of St. John’s.

We are praying the Holy Spirit would move us to love Jesus Christ more dearly. We are praying to see the Holy Spirit working powerfully among us and through us to bring the Kingdom of God to others.


·  Monday mornings at 9 am.

·  75 to 90 minutes of scripture study and prayer.

·  to pray for every single person associated with this church.
