NEW COVENANT FAMILY CHURCH

"Where Families Pray and Worship Together - To Stay Together"

Prayer Warrior's Ministry

Here at New Covenant Family Church, our “Prayer Warriors Ministry” consist of a group of people who are committed to lifting up this ministry, and the people we minister to, with effectual, fervent prayer.

From our “Morning Glory Prayer Line, to our 24 hour “24 Engine Room Prayer Group”, some of these people have been friends of Pastor Juanita and I for a very long time and some of them are more recent friends; but the fact remains that we are thankful for each and every prayer offered on our behalf and on the behalf of this ministry and those we minister to.

Join Us on Our Morning Glory Prayer Line

James 5:16 says that the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective and we have seen it!

We believe that the prayers offered up by these “prayer warriors” and the way that God answers those prayers out of His faithfulness, is the jet fuel that powers this ministry.

As the founders of this ministry, Pastor Juanita and I would go so far as to say that the “prayer warriors” are not just highly valued, but are the most valuable asset that this ministry will ever have.

24 Hour Engine Room Prayer Group

Some of the members of the “Prayer Warriors Ministry” have agreed to pray for this ministry daily and others have said that they will pray as they are led, but either way, we can’t tell you how needed, important, and beneficial those prayers are.

The Bible is filled with examples of the power and effectiveness of prayer. We don’t think we will really grasp how much our prayer accomplishes until we get to heaven and God shows us.

If you have decided that you would like to be a “24 Hour Prayer Warrior” for New Covenant Family Church, then please send us an e-mail to let us know, and we can add your name to the list.

You will receive periodic prayer requests, prayer time slots and just as importantly you will receive “praise” reports when the Lord has answered those prayers.

There have been times when the Lord has spoken to us through various people on this list and it is inspiring to see that when this has happens, God will give the same message to several of you so that we can be sure it was something from Him. I know that this has really encouraged some of you also.

For those of you who have chosen to be a “New Covenant Family Church Prayer Warrior”, let me say that Pastor Juanita and I can’t thank you enough. Your prayers are the key that will make this ministry powerful.

Know that as we take this journey together, you are a huge and very important part of this ministry and may the Lord bless you as you have blessed others, with your effectual, fervent prayers.

Family Prayer Time

Family Prayer Preservation
At NCFC, we believe that one of God’s highest priorities is preserving family relationships. God designed marriage (Genesis 2:18, 24) and the family to accomplish His purpose and to enrich our lives (Psalm 127:3). While technology has enhanced the quality of our businesses and allowed families to stay electronically accessible, it has also curtailed communication. With greater regularity, parents and their children distance themselves from one another emotionally and spiritually. Ultimately, in this era of cutting-edge communication, the family unit mis-communicates” with God by omitting family prayers.

A family unit is established upon divine creation and Satan utilizes any circumstances that promote disputes and destruction within a relationship (Ephesians 4:26-27, 1 Peter 5:7-8). The majority of families rarely participate in activities together, directing their attention to the television or computer. In forfeiting dialogue with family members, parents and children lack unity from God through prayer.

Family Prayer Privilege
We may recall the familiar child’s family prayer, God is great, God is good. And we thank Him for this food. As a child facing the probability of a Creature hiding under my bed I prayed, If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. Some families may choose prearranged prayers or repetition, while others may prefer spontaneous, less structured prayers. In both cases, prayers are a privilege that require a commitment between parent and child as well as God. Including God in daily circumstances helps both child and parent to understand one another. With the freedom of praying together, families are partners, building strong spiritual foundations in their homes (1 Corinthians 3:9, 11).

Family prayers extend beyond meals and bedtime. Our needs extend beyond food and fears. Families should discuss and pray together on a variety of issues. By integrating a Bible verse(s) (Ephesians 6:1-3) with prayer, children can be encouraged to ask God to help them obey their parents. Parents show their obedience to God by respecting and honoring each other (1 Peter 3:7). Children experience security as they witness their parents praying for God’s help as well. As the mother seeks to please God in her prayers, God rewards her family (Proverbs 31:10-12, 28-29). As the father assumes his place as spiritual leader in the home, God blesses the family (Genesis 18:19). By example, their children will approach the Lord regularly as if they we were crawling up into a loving Father's lap.


Family Prayer Protection
In family prayer, it is important to remember that our Heavenly Father loves to talk with children and cares deeply about their problems. Knowing that He protects and rescues us from our fears provides invaluable peace and unity to a family. Praying together allows children to voice their concerns to both an earthly parent and their heavenly Father, dear Father (Romans 8:15) simultaneously. When our children were young, we would often read Romans 8:38 then prayed, thanking God for His love and asking Him to keep them safe as they began school. Years later, as our children would head off to college, our family prayers knitted us even closer, knowing God was faithful.


The benefits of family prayers also impact the parents in dramatic ways. Unemployment can tear a marriage and family apart. When I lost business of 8 years, I was shaken. Our children began praying for their father before and after school. Juanita and I shared our need for direction and resources with our children. As I recall, There were days when I felt frustrated and my heart was restless. But then one of the children would put their hand on my shoulder and ask God to help Daddy not to be sad and for some nice people to give our daddy a job. It was during these times that I felt my heart being guarded, even protected, whenever my family prayed with and for me. When that perfect job was provided, the whole family gave thanks and our children realized their vital part in praying (Philippians 4:6). Prayer plants a hedge of protection around families.

Family Prayer Priority
Though family prayer is effective in strengthening members, it’s often difficult to find a specific prayer time. Parents approach family prayer with the best of intentions, only to find schedule conflicts. A parent may feel unqualified to lead in prayer, believing that they will appear ineffective communicating with God. So are there guidelines to establishing family prayer as priority each day?
• Talk about whatever is bothering you, no matter how small (1 Peter 5:7).
• Invite God to reveal His purposes, plans, and desires for your life (1 John 5:14).
• Make God the head of your home (Deuteronomy 6:5).
• Expect God to respond as you humble yourself before Him (Mark 11:22).
Family Prayers . . . all it takes is T.I.M.E.


WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only begotten Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
