Prayer Requests or Praises

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

Philippians 4:6


We believe in the power of intercessory prayer. We cannot explain how God works in prayer, but we know there are some things God will not do unless we pray. Intercessory prayer calls forth God’s power: and when God’s power enters, a new situation is always created.


“The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.” James 5:16


Prayer strengthens our spiritual connection with God. Jesus prayed, and told us to pray. The Hickory Flat UMC Prayer Team prays over requests from the community and beyond, lifting them to God’s listening ear.

Prayer Team

Hickory Flat Church embraces the power of prayer. We have wonderful prayer warriors who daily approach the Throne and God’s grace to pray over the praises and needs of the community. Prayers for healing, direction, discernment, wisdom, mercy, comfort, transformation, peace, and protection— whatever is needed.


A Prayer Team has been implemented to support and lift up others in prayer. This prayer team is open to anyone willing to receive prayer requests via weekly email and commit to purposefully pray for them. We want to be intentional and committed about praying for those in and outside of our fellowship.


If you desire to be a part of this ministry and receive the “Knee Mail” as one of our prayer partners, you may indicate so on the Sunday bulletin tear-off tab or sign up for weekly updates.
