To make Disciples of Jesus Christ

~Prayer Ministry

 The United Methodist Church is focusing on the opioid epidemic in our state and nation. Let us take time this season to pray and listen for God's direction in response to this sad, serious problem.
Pray for our Vacation Bible School 
 Thank You Heavenly Father for answered prayers! Thank you for Your MIRACLES!
Prayers needed for so many: America's leaders and citizens, so many hurting because of hurricanes, earthquakes, and fires; ones suffering from disease, victims of shootings, and our churches' leaders and members.
"Give us true faith, O God. Help us to face each day trusting in you, even if we don't know what will happen, and recognizing that we can't control everything that will happen. Help us to know that YOU are with us and will sustain us; in the name of Jesus, who faced even death with faith. Amen"
 Our Heavenly Father asks that we pray about everything. As usual we have many people who need our prayers.
   The children and youth of our church, of our state, and of our country surely need our prayers.
 Let us continue prayers for Summersville Middle School, Richwood High School, and Richwood Middle School students and  community as they continue to deal with losses and changes caused by flood of 2016.. Pray for the board of education. Making our circle even larger pray for flood victims in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.
   Also, our nation's leaders are greatly in need of prayer. Pray for President Trump and his advisers. Include in your prayers the people and ruler of North Korea.
  Let us not forget Christians all over the world that are being persecuted and murdered.
If you or someone you know needs prayer, please call our Prayer Chain Committee Chairperson Ilene Houchin at 304-872-2606, and she will activate our phone chain for your needs. An additional prayer request option is at the bottom of this page.

Monthly Prayer ... Prayer for Each Other ...  Prayer for Reverend Dave & Linda

Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God…Philippians 4:6


Prayer is a life lived in intimacy with God, a life of knowing God as savior, healer and redeemer, a place from which God’s Spirit moves and works. The goal of our Prayer Ministry is to have Members of our congregation constantly in Prayer for one another and for those who need our prayers.

Please join the Prayer Ministry at Memorial United Methodist Church in praying for our County, our Pastor, each other, and all people of the world. In addition, please pray for elections, political leaders and candidates. 

Each member is also prayed for by a Prayer Warrior. Our volunteer Prayer Warriors are our “back-ups in Prayer.” They are assigned groups of people for whom they pray.


You may request a Prayer Warrior to pray for you or for someone you love

by contacting our Prayer Ministry Team.

Phone messages may be left at 304-872-3221

or you may e-mail us at


If you are already being “prayed for” by one of our Prayer Warriors or have a Prayer Partner and wish for your Prayer Warrior and/or Prayer Partner to pray for a special request for you, please e-mail your request to our Prayer Ministry Team and they will forward your request.
