Prayer support is a vital part of planting a church. This seems obvious, but the reality is that the spiritual warfare surrounding church planting is intense. Many planters are beginning their church plant with nothing, often in a new location away from family and friends. The planter, being a catalytic person, is working insane hours and usually out of his home. The toll on the family can be great. Your prayers can support and undergird the planter and their family during these early stages. In addition, prayer for the hearts of those who will be reached through this new plant, for finances for the planter (and team members) to live on, as well as to do ministry. For co-laborers to rise up and walk alongside the planters. Oh yes, your prayers are essential!
To commit to pray for a specific plant / planter, please browse our church plants and future plants under the Churches tab. When you find the plant you feel called to pray for, please tell us about it by completing the “Partner With Us” form. The planter will contact you with specific ways you can be praying for them. You can also ask us to help match you with a plant/planter to pray for, as well as committing to pray for Portland Church Planting in general.
