The Prayer Ministry of Dunwoody UMC supports our members, visitors and the community with uplifting prayers. These volunteers use intercessory prayer, meaning they pray for others including our ministries, pastors, members in need, those on mission trips, people in need around the world and those who have specifically asked for prayer.

The Prayer Ministry also provides prayer blankets to those within our congregation who are experiencing illness or other special situations. Please contact prayer@dunwoodyumc.org for prayer blanket requests.

Make a Prayer Request




The Prayer Line is available 24 hours a day and is answered when a volunteer is in the Prayer Room. At other times, you may leave a confidential message with your prayer need. Leave your name and number if you'd like to be called back. If your prayer involves an emergency situation, please contact the pastor on call.


Send an E-mail


The Prayer Ministry of Dunwoody United Methodist Church supports all of our nurturing and outreach ministries. When emailing prayer@dunwoodyumc. org, please let us know if you'd like someone to call you back. If so, be sure to leave your phone number.

Submit a Prayer Card


Prayer request cards are in the pew racks in the Sanctuary. Complete a card and hand it to a member of the clergy, or place it in the prayer request boxes located in the Narthex and Parlor Narthex. All cards go to a member of the clergy first before reaching the Prayer Ministry, where intercessors pray for the needs that are expressed.


Submit an Online Prayer Request


If you prefer, you can complete an online form that goes directly to our clergy, and is then forwarded to our Prayer Ministry volunteers. Please indicate in your request if you’d like someone to contact you.

DUMC's Prayer Room is a beautiful, private space near the entrance to the church offices. It is open for prayer any time the church is open. We hope that you will use this space for your time of prayer or quiet time with God. Members of the Prayer Ministry and the clergy can be available to pray with you, if desired. Call the church at 770-394-0675 to arrange a time. You also may call the confidential Prayer Line at 770-671-8239 or send an email to prayer@dunwoodyumc.org to request prayers for yourself or others.
