Although “prayer” is not one of the gifts listed in Scripture as a Spiritual Gift, we value the meaning, benefit, and worship that is found in prayer. Additionally, we value the members of Orrville Baptist Church who willingly take many times out of their day to pray for each other, our neighbors, and the world.
Members of the Prayer Team will have the flexibility to minister through prayer however they wish during the week. In any case, members will intentionally set aside some portion of their time once a week to engage in specific activities that involve prayer.
They may choose to: meet at the church for a time of prayer, meet in the house of a homebound member for prayer, visit local
businesses, schools, or other churches to offer prayer, offer prayer for our neighbors, etc. The options are nearly limitless!
Members of the Prayer Team are also given the opportunity to practice Intercessory Prayer during the worship service, as well as open our time of worship with the Invocation.
If you consider yourself a "Prayer Warrior", you are encouraged to join the Prayer Team.
"Prayer is as natural an expression of faith as breathing is to life"
- Jonathan Edwards
