Jesus said, "My house shall be called a House of Prayer"

Prayer is communication with God through worship, meditation, requests, intercession, listening, and thanksgiving - supports and empowers all ministries.

Listening Prayer

I’m struggling Lord, what should I do?  Is this opportunity from You?  Lord, what do you want me to know this day?
Listening Prayer is for everyone. Let’s be still and discern His will!
Be still and know that I am God - Psalms 46:10

Prayer Opportunities

We seek to undergird all we do with prayer as we pray for our leadership, our congregation, our ministries and activities, and for those beyond our walls in the community and around the world. Bethany has a wonderful prayer ministry which provides many opportunities for you to learn more about prayer, participate in a prayer group, or pray alone where ever you are. We invite you to join us in providing a foundation of prayer as you deepen your relationship with God.

Pray in Groups
Intercessory Prayer Teams
Contact: Jill Saufferer

Tuesdays, 8:30 - 9:30 AM
Room D-307
(Upper Room)
by Zoom (email Jill for link)

Pray as a group for others. You don't have to pray out loud!  All you need is the willingness to agree in prayer (silently or out loud) and the ability to keep all requests confidential.  It's best if you can come on time so as not to interrupt the group while praying.

Alpha Prayer

Receive prayer requests from staff & team to pray for all participating in Alpha, praying at home - or pray with the team at Bethany on Tuesday evenings.
Contact: Cathy White

Many of these prayer opportunities have started because someone had an idea or a "nudge" from God.  Is there some type or subject of prayer you are interested in that you do not see listed here?  Or are you interested in an expansion of one of the groups (an evening intercessory team, for example)?  Contact us with ideas or suggestions!

Pray Alone
Prayer e-Group
Contact:  Carolyn Bawcom, 512-258-6017

Pray from home or work for timely concerns by joining a Bethany Google 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. Requests to pray may come in only once a week or several a day. All you need is email and a willingness to lift others before God when a request comes to you!
