Our founding fathers started with prayer; thus, we continue with prayer. The YMCA was birthed when George Williams, 21, and two of his friends felt God leading them to a strategy of praying by name for the other 150 members of their drapery firm in London. As time went on, the staff members began to inquire about spiritual things and commit their lives to Christ.
Today, we want to continue our heritage by elevating prayer at our YMCA. We know prayer matters to God. We know it matters to our staff and members. Prayer works!
In each of our YMCAs, we have a prayer box, where we welcome members and staff to share their requests. We all need prayer! But, often, there are things that take place in our life where we need others to pray for us. Would you share your prayer request? We will have our prayer team pray for your request. Note: All prayer requests are kept confidential.
“Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” – JOHN 16:24
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7
