Welcome to the Prayer page at Idlewild. Here you will find resources such as who and what to pray for specifically, including requests from the leaders of the church, upcoming events, Watchman on the Wall signup, and more.

Our goal is to initiate fresh, heart-stirring prayer content and scriptural, Christ-focused encouragement to motivate Spirt led prayer in the church.

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
(Mark 1:35, 2005 NIV)
I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing…. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
(John 15:5,7 NASB)



Join Pastor Greg Murphy for a time of heart preparation, worship-based prayer, and intercession each Wednesday evening 5:30-6:15 in the Prayer Room beside the Fireside Room. Prayer can lead us to powerfully encounter God in relationship, worship and ministry. Let’s Seek God’s face together!

I’ve recently have returned to work but only in a light duty status which I was hoping to return back to full duty. You see, I’m struggling with this work status because 6 months ago I had to have a total right knee replacement surgery which put me out on short term disability status for these past 6 months. (12/18/19 to 06/18/2020). My job is extremely active and not to mention I absolutely LOVE what I do in my profession. I have been employed with the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office for a little over twenty years. My current assignment is a a School Resource Deputy At Davidsen Middle School within the Westchase area. My kids, all 1,100 plus some and staff I dearly love.

My struggle is in order to return to Fit For Duty, we as Leo’s have to pass a rigorous fitness test to include multiple obstacle courses and running. I took my test with excitement and enthusiasm on 06/22/2020 only to fail it, twice. We have chance to run through it 3 times but I couldn’t do it the third time around. I cried all day after failing it. So, off to light duty status working a desk job which I am so grateful to even have to opportunity to still be working. However, my third day in, Wednesday 06/24/2020 I felt sick and uneasy upon completion of my shift. I noticed I had a very sore throat which became hoarse throughout the remainder of my evening. I returned to work the next day to only be feeling very sick. I had friday as a scheduled day off due to a in office surgery procedure but had to cancel because of feeling so sick. I’ve just have had so many set backs these last 6 months and it’s getting old!! Monday June 29, 2020 I decided at the advice of my sergeant to go see HCSO doctor which several tests were conducted to include the Flu, Strep Throat, Antibodies and oh yes, wait for it, the Coronavirus. All tested negative with the exception I am patiently awaiting for the COVID-19 results which can take up to 3 to 5 days. I was sent home to quarantine until the results come in. I was so distraught that I cried like a baby when I called my sergeant and captain because all I want to do is to get back to work, full duty as a proud sheriff deputy. I feel defeated and like a failure. My faith feels dissipated and far out of reach. I am seeking prayers for healing, and for strength in my faith. All I can say is, I am feeling so incredibly lost.

Lisa Noland.

Please pray for Mike Hogan who will be going into surgery this morning at 9:30 for cancer on his neck. I pray the doctors will be precise with a steady hand and that they will find the cancer has not spread. Please give peace Lord to Mike and his family and let your presence be known. Also, a quick healing time with no complications. Thank you prayer warriors!

I have a praise report to send. I have been praying for a long time for a young man named grant. I think all of our prayers are working. I still don't get to see him as I so wish I could as I miss our friendship. But I hear he is doing better. And I am so very grateful to God that he is

I’m praying for favor for a job opportunity that a friend tipped me off to. My husband was laid off in March, one week after being hospitalized (non COVID) and I was covering all of our bills with my salary. I lost my job in May. I have been leaning into God more than ever before...believing in His promises and expecting Him to do an amazing work in my life. I need this job desperately not only financially but for medical benefits. Please pray that the doors open, that the favor of God covers me and that this potential employer makes me an immediate offer.

Prayers requested for a friendship which has seemed to have ended. Its as if I do not exist any longer, and I don't know why. I pray for repair of this friendship, I miss it dearly. But I pray for my friend that they know they are loved and cared for.
