Prayer is the foundation of life and the foundation of Saint James. Because we are a “spiritual hospital” we have many offerings to receive prayer and to share your ministry of prayer.

Prayer at Worship

Prayer Teams are available for confidential, private prayer needs at the time of receiving the Holy Communion in worship at 10:30, Sundays in the Ministry Center.

Life Group Prayers

Every Life Group is also a praying group. If you are in need of prayer ask a Life Group leader and they will welcome you for prayer and spiritual refreshment.

Daughters of the King

Women who pray daily for the church and for you. For confidential prayer requests contact Maxine Swafford at

Saint James’ Intercessors

A group of prayer warriors who meet weekly to pray and intercede on behalf of the church, the world and the people. Share your prayer requests with Shirley Brown at

St. Paul’s Prayer for the Ephesians [and for us].

For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers,  that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. Ephesians 1:15
