Prayer Ministry

The Prayer Ministry of Dunwoody United Methodist Church supports all of our nurturing and outreach ministries.


If you desire intercessory prayer, call the Prayer Line 770-671-8239, which can be reached 24 hours a day. If the Prayer Room is not staffed when a call is received, an answering machine records the confidential concern. Intercessors present when a call is received will pray with the caller. If it is requested, intercessors will return recorded calls.

Church members and their families are invited to call when there is an emergency situation for which prayer support is desired. The clergy are also made aware of such prayer requests when they are received.


The Prayer Room is open throughout the week for intercessory prayer. Volunteers come to the Prayer Room one hour a week to pray for needs of others, and to answer the Prayer Line.


Each Sunday morning, 15 minutes prior to each service, volunteers pray for the ministers participating in the service and the spiritual nurturing of the congregation.


Prayer request cards are found in the pew racks and can be completed and placed in the offering plate or given to an usher. All requests are referred to the Prayer Ministry. Intercessors will pray for the needs that are expressed. Requests may also be e-mailed to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .


Meditations written by persons in the church are prepared by the Prayer Ministry and distributed during Advent and Lent.

Prayer Request

  • Pray for the 400,000 children in foster care in the U.S.
  • Pray for the foster families and the churches involved in foster care ministry.
  • Pray for the social workers, judges and everyone involved in child welfare across the country.
  • Pray that God moves on the hearts of individuals and ministries who are called to the ministry of foster care.

Lord, we pray for peace for every child in foster care across the nation.

"All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace." Isaiah 54:13

Many children who enter foster care are filled with fears and worries—from their family problems to the issues of crime and unrest in the world. We must pray that they will grow in their trust in God and that the peace of God will cover them regardless of the surrounding circumstances.
