Prayer

Group of people with different cultural backgrounds praying together

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have what we asked of him"

- 1 John 5:14-15

The Ministry of Prayer demonstrates our love and concern for others through participation in one or more of the following areas:

Prayer Chain

Prayer support for immediate needs by email. These confidential requests are distributed to a group dedicated to responding in prayer as needed. Contact office@eastridge.ca with your prayer requests.

Pre-Service Prayer

Meet each Sunday before the morning Worship Service at 9:00am in the Conference Room.

Power Hour

Wednesday nights during the year at 7:30pm is an opportunity to pray for the congregation and the community.  You can submit an item for prayer by writing it out and placing it in the "Prayer Request" box at the welcome kiosk.

Prayer on your own
Don't be too quick to set aside your bulletin, for each week we include a prayer list for our EastRidge family, a local church and pastor, an Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada pastor and congregation as well as prayer requests from one of our supported missionaries.
Sunday Evening Prayer Concerts

Are periodically at 7pm in the Fellowship Hall.  Dates will be announced in the bulletin. Prayer concerts allow us an extended amount of time to focus in prayer for special concerns.

Small Group and Committees

Small groups and committees are a big part of our prayer ministry. They are encouraged to engaged in prayer for each other, prayer for the church and prayer for the community!
