How It Began
The Intercessory Prayer Ministry at Eatonton First began in August 2010. After two Wednesday night Bible studies in 2009, several participants were convicted by the Holy Spirit that Eatonton First needed a prayer room. Here, an individual may come in quiet to the Lord to bring to God, through Jesus Christ and the help of the Holy Spirit, the praises and concerns of our congregation, our community, our nation, and the world by the prayers of individuals and groups.
The prayer room of Eatonton First is located in the Taliaferro House (the white house on the corner of Madison Avenue and Magnolia Street).
How To Join
There are two sessions per year for volunteers to sign up for one hour a week in the prayer room. Sign ups typically take place in August and January. However, if you’re interested in signing up at other points of the year, we would be happy to plug you into a weekly time slot. Although not part of the two sessions, prayer warriors may choose to continue their time slot during the summer months.
How Prayer Requests Are Received
There are two ways to send a prayer request to the prayer room.
- While attending Sunday morning worship, you may fill out a prayer request card (located on the back of pews/chairs) and return it to the offering plate.
- You may also call the church office at 706.485.5871.
The requests will then be typed up and delivered to the prayer room once a week.
