Prayer

Prayer Request

Prayer can sometimes be a confusing subject. We believe that God is good in all things, and yet sometimes we have difficulty seeing how God is at work in the midst of life's most difficult moments. When we pray, we humbly seek the wisdom and strength so desperately needed to better understand the heart of God.



Prayer Team

Prayer Team Covenant

The Joplin First United Methodist Church prayer team prays for requests by email on Sundays and additionally as they are received. We treat information as confidential unless otherwise indicated. To protect privacy, requests passed to this team include only the first name or initials of the individual concerned and a brief description of the request. Any use of full names or mention of specific medical procedures or other details is shared only when provided by the person named in the request, that person’s spouse or the parent of a minor child.

Wesleyan Covenant Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ,

Let me be your servant,

under your command.

I am no longer my own,

but yours.


Put me to what you will,

rank me with whom you will;

put me to doing,

put me to suffering.


Let me be employed for you

or laid aside for you,

enabled for you

or brought low for you. 


Let me be full,

let me be empty.

Let me have all things,

let me have nothing.


I freely and heartily yield

all things to your pleasure

and disposal.
