Pray Alone

Prayer e-Group
Contact:  Carolyn Bawcom, 512-258-6017
Pray from home or work for timely concerns by joining a Bethany Yahoo email group to send and receive prayer requests.  This group has two purposes: to mobilize a large group of people to quickly pray for NON-confidential requests and to give a forum for others to share NON-confidential prayer needs.  All you need is email and a willingness to lift others before God when a request comes to you!   Send a blank e-mail to: - Yahoo will reply with a message that says you have been enrolled - if you "reply send" to that you will be enrolled!  You will use a different email address to send in requests:  Requests to pray may come in only once a week or several a day.

Pray for the Church
Contact: Sandy Kilgore, 512-331-1130

All we do at Bethany is covered in prayer!  On one Friday or Saturday a month, prayer-walk inside the church buildings.  It generally takes 30-45 minutes to walk through all the buildings and prayer suggestions are provided.  Commit to one weekend a month.  No training necessary and prayer guides are provided.   If it is difficult for you to walk, you can sit in Sanctuary, Prayer Room or Grimes Chapel and pray from there!

Prayer Time in the Upper Room
Contact: Jill Saufferer, 512-258-7789

Come to the Bethany Prayer Room (D307) by yourself to pray for individuals, our church, and the world!  Or meditate, praise God, or simply sit in silence.    The room is organized for you to pray at stations that give many suggestions for prayer but there are other ways to pray there.   Commit to a specific half-hour or hour weekly for 4 months.  We will give orientation and ideas of ways to pray.   Times are available days & evenings.

Family Prayer Team
Contact: Rick Markle, 512-335-4325
Pray for one Bethany family daily (usually about 25 families per Pray-er). We provide you with a list of families, and a Prayer Guide to assist you.  Each individual gets their own list of families, or a couple may choose to share a list and pray together for those families.
