At Pleasant Grove, we've dedicated a page on our site to prayer because we are a praying church that believes in the power of prayer because we've seen the faithfulness of God who hears and answers! 

In addition to your personal prayer life, please consider becoming a faithful prayer partner to lift up our church leaders, members, visitors, those on the prayer request list, and especially calling out the names of any lost people you know. Pray for our country and our leaders. Pray for missionaries. Pray in times of need and also in times of thanksgiving.

It's easy to be a prayer partner for our Church! All you have to do is either make a list to post in your home or office to remind you to specifically pray for these things daily, or you can ask a member or personal friend to be your prayer partner and meet once a week to pray together for specific needs of the church. The point is to begin a prayer walk that is faithful, reverent, and a purposed fellowship with God. You'll be amazed at the way you'll begin to see God work in your life and the lives of those you've prayed for!
