At ECC We BelievePrayer is Powerful

Pastor Matt Marluft
  • Dependence on God through prayer is foundational to our church and provides a solid base for all we do. The Prayer Ministry at ECC helps put prayer into action.

    In Exodus 17, we see Moses and Joshua fighting the Amalekites. Joshua is in the thick of the battle while Moses is standing on top of the hill and raising his hands. When his hands are up, the Israelites are winning. When he gets tired and drops his arms, they start to lose. Finally Aaron and Hur came to the rescue. They sat Moses down and helped him hold his arms up. This seems a perfect picture of prayer support. While we aren’t fighting Amalekites around here, we are waging some fierce spiritual battles.

    In Exodus, the battle would have been lost if Aaron and Hur had not stepped in to support Moses. We will have to wait for heaven to see the effect of our prayers today, but there is no doubt the stakes are just as high. What are your prayer requests.

    Sunday Prayer Room

    Each Sunday, our prayer Deacons are available in the Prayer Room at the left front of the Sanctuary after service.  If you have a special need, or if God has spoken to your heart, please take the opportunity to visit.

    Prayer Chains

    This very vital aspect of prayer is the front-line force that meets the immediate needs of the church family. When a need within the ECC Church family occurs, these prayer warriors are notified by e-mail/phone to pray immediately for the need.

    Men’s Prayer Breakfast

    Men are invited for breakfast and prayer on the first Saturday of each month from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.  Guests are certainly welcome!
