Prayer

Cornerstone is a praying church. That’s not just something we say—it’s an integral part of who we are and what we do! We believe God responds to prayer, and invites us to be in a prayer relationship with Him.

If You Need Prayer

There is so much power in prayer! We have a few different ways you can connect with our Prayer Team with your prayer concern. Just choose the method that suits you best. If you would like someone to pray with you in person, we can arrange for that as well.

Easy and confidential

Online Prayer Request

You can send us your prayer concern online so that our prayer team or the general church can pray for you, depending on the level of confidentiality you prefer.

Visit at church

Prayer Rooms

Prayer volunteers in Blue Shirts are available in the Prayer Rooms at each campus after each service for one-to-one prayer.

A Prayer Room is available at each campus for you to use any time the building is open. There are materials on prayer to aid you as you pray. The prayer room is in room 302 at the 84th St. Campus and near the entrances at the HH and SW Campuses.

Welcome Cards

During weekend services, you can write your prayer requests and praises on our Welcome Cards, either in print or online. Our prayer team will then pray for you during the next week. Staff and volunteers also attempt contact those who submit a prayer request to offer encouragement.

Safe Place Prayer

We invite you to a spiritual practice or exercise called Safe Place Prayer, led by Bev Scott. Safe Place is an opportunity for you to be with God, to hear a word from him, or experience his presence in a place that you’ve been, your imagination, or even in the chair that you sit in. If for any reason during this practice or exercise you experience some emotional upheaval, email Karen Baker, our Care and Prayer Lead at Cornerstone. Together, you can confidentially process your experience.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:6-7

Pray for People

You see people in need of encouragement and prayer every day and want to make a positive difference in their lives, right? As part of the Prayer Team, you could make that difference in the lives of many! From your own home, or from anywhere, you can individually pray over a weekly list of prayer requests. We'll send them each week via email from Cornerstone.

You could also make a difference by praying with people one-to-one, at any of the campuses, before, after, or during worship times. Our one-to-one Prayer Team members wear Blue Shirts and are available for prayer as needed.

Whether you prefer to pray over a weekly email list of requests, or you'd like to pray with someone one-to-one as a Blue Shirt -- or both -- the first thing to do is fill out the form below. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
