“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition,..” | Philippians 4:6-7



Our church believes in the power of prayer. To support our congregation, we have a team of people who pray for your requests and celebrate your praises. If you, your family or friends would like to be lifted up and have us pray for your challenges or praises, we will be happy to unite our prayers with yours.

Guidelines for People using the Prayer Chain

The prayer chain is open to join to people who are currently (or formerly) an active part of FPC Newark. Requests to join the prayer chain will be mainly for church members and their families and friends. Anyone is welcome to send a request, which you can do by sending it to the email about or use the form below. (Please no political prayers or commercial announcements)

Please use the following format when sending a prayer request:

  • Include your name and the name of the person who is requesting the prayer
  • Include the name of the person being prayed for
  • Write a brief prayer request (1-3 sentences) that is easily understood by those who receive it.
  • If you are making a request on behalf of someone else who is not a family member, it is very important that you first get permission from the person or family for whom we are praying. If necessary use first names only, or “friend,” “sister” etc. until permission is received.
Note: Once the prayer is sent out to the prayer chain it is a public prayer. Your request will go out to everyone on the prayer chain (including the Pastor). If you want a confidential prayer, you must send it specifically to the Moderator and ask that it only be share with the Pastor.
