Prayer'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.' Philippians 4:6-7
Prayer is essential if we are to carry on God’s work. Jesus left instructions about how to pray and set an example of faithfulness in his own prayer life. If JESUS depended on fellowship with the Father, how much more do WE need to spend time alone with God!
At Lutheran Church of the Cross we are continually seeking to support one another in prayer. While prayer is a significant part of our worship services, we want to be more intentional in praying for others on a daily basis. Email your prayer request (please indicate confidentiality level) or use one of the following opportunities.
Starting at 8pm Good Friday through Sunday morning at 8am, we will be praying in our Prayer Chapel around the clock for God to move powerfully in our lives, families, church, community, and world. You are invited to sign up for a 1-hour time slot. Click Here.
Prayer Request Forms
Personal prayer requests can be submitted to the Prayer Team, the Staff, or to the Prayer Line. Communication cards (found in the bulletin) can be placed in the offering plate or given to an usher or staff member.
Prayer Requests Following Worship
There are members from the Prayer Team available to pray with you following each service. You will be directed during worship as to where they will be located.

Our Prayer Line is a weekly email listing prayer concerns from members of our congregation. If you have a concern you’d like included on the Internet Prayer-line or if you’d like to join the prayer-line, contact Laurel.
The Prayer Room, where individuals or groups can gather to pray, is located behind the Welcome Center near the Worship Center. As we commit ourselves to prayer, God’s plans and purposes for us are revealed in amazing ways.
