Care and Prayer
Every ministry at Morton United Methodist Church is a ministry of prayer, but one special area is leading the congregation to focus on a vision of prayer.
MAKE A PRAYER REQUEST:
Prayer request cards are available in the sanctuary/attendance pads. You may also request prayer by emailing our office at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will forward the information to Judy Poole and Jan Sampson, Co-Chairpersons of our Prayer Ministry.
PRAYER BEFORE SURGERY:
Pastors are available to pray with you and your family before surgery, or during hospitalization. Please contact the office at 309-266-7174 with the date, time, and hospital where you will be having your surgery. Due to HIPPA regulations, the hospital will not call and inform the church of your hospitalization.
Tools to aid in the development of your personal prayer life, may be found at www.umc.org/pray. Another great resource is “How To Pray The Best of John Wesley on Prayer.
SEEKING GOD IN PRAYER:
One of John Wesley’s achievements was his devotion to prayer.
Lord, I am no longer my own, but Yours. Put me to what You will, rank me with whom You will. Let be employed by You or laid aside for You, exalted for You or brought low by You. Let me have all things, let me have nothing, I freely and heartily yield all things to Your pleasure and disposal. And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, You are mine and I am Yours. So be it. Amen
– John Wesley
