We believe prayer is a vital and fulfilling part of a relationship with God. Through prayer, we give thanks, ask for forgiveness, acknowledge God's power, pray for the needs of others, and pray for our own needs. At VPC we hope you feel free and equipped to pray, regardless of your circumstances. This page is intended to help prayer feel accessible to you, at any time. 

Prayer is not as complicated as many make it look to be. For prayer is simply talking with God and sharing your hopes and dreams as well as fears, thoughts, and concerns. In fact, prayer is more than an event in the course of a day, but rather it’s being in constant communication with God.

Paul wrote, “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-17)

But prayer is not simply talking with God but prayer also involves listening. Prayer is also about being quiet and listening for God’s direction. Like any healthy relationship, we speak and we listen and the same is true in our relationship with God.

Prayer is a powerful tool because prayer brings real change. Praying for others is one of the most important ministries we can engage in as a church as we bring to God in prayer the people we love and their needs confident that God is merciful and compassionate. If you feel that God is leading you to share in our Prayer Ministry we would love to talk with you. Please contact Tammy Gallagher and she will direct you to the point person for this ministry.

Many times we're asked to walk roads that are difficult and not ones that we would choose. When this happens, remember that you aren't walking alone; God is with you every step of the way! As a part of Christ's church, we consider it a privilege to pray for those in need. VPC’s Prayer Team is made up of people who are praying diligently and specifically for needs both within and outside the church, and they are available to pray for you! Please submit your requests online if you need prayer. If you would like us to pray for someone besides yourself, we ask you to please get permission before sharing their personal circumstances. If you would like to pray with a Pastor, please note that in the form.
