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 feel like God has abandoned me. I felt strongly that God was working on my behalf. I had a sense of peace and confidence that the right job would present itself at just the right moment. Now, four months later, I'm out of money, my seriously ill husband is in desperate need of medical attention and I discovered today that longtime "friends" are maligning my reputation. I was days away from being offered a great position; one with a salary that would allow me to support my family, get my husband into a neurosurgeon, and hopefully show my skeptical spouse that God provides for His children. However, the hiring manager notified me today via text (yes text, I didn't even warrant a phone call) that they were going another direction and offered an empty apology for the inconvenience. I'm broken and I'm tired. I trusted God 110% on this one. I'm a "Plan B" kind of girl and I always have a backup plan. This time, I felt God calling me to trust Him planning for "just in case", no doubting. I stepped out, and waited expectantly. I trusted Him and now my life is imploding and I'm questioning God's love for me. I don't know what to seek in prayer (understanding, trust, faith) but I'm hoping that you do. Please pray for me.

Please pray for my daughter and her fiancee. They have been Christian dating for awhile. They have been following God's standards of dating from the Biblical perspective. They are the idea couple and a great representation to the body of Christ. But now the devil has come in from the outside to try and break then apart. They both have heard from God about dating each other. But now they are fighting against strongholds from the enemy to try and separate them. Please pray for God's best in this situation, for them to have wisdom, compassion, and peace. For them to hold on to their love for each other. For to be Christians and date is the will of God. Praise God!

Thank you for continuing to pray for me. I am so happy that in these uncertain times that there are caring Christian people out there.

6 months after being laid off, I have been recalled to work, although with much less hours and a transfer to a most unsafe working environment in a public facing position where social distancing is impossible and guests are often openly disrespectful of the rules. It is very stressful and has caused a lot of anxiety. Let's just say it is NOT the "happiest place on earth" as they say. Although glad to have a job, the income can not afford me a place to live, so while sometimes living in my car in the summer heat, I am now in a hotel for a couple of weeks.

I continue to pray for God to open doors and lead me to where I am to go, an affordable place to live, a job to support myself, and a Bible believing church with caring, praying members who actually get involved. It's rather embarrassing when you are asked for your address, and you don't have one.

I am still being blessed by those with whom I cross paths with when I am able to help them even though most never know it was me who did something and that's how I prefer. I always feel that God is with me, even though I am still in a very challenging and uncertain situation (as are many) and I am so very thankful for the continued prayers of His people. Know that I am praying for all of you as well.

Please pray for me to forgive and show love towards my daughter’s father through all the pain I’ve endured from him. My thoughts of him are not pleasant and I don’t want hate to engulf me. I believe my daughter sees him as the victim and me as the bully when it’s the opposite. I want to have a better relationship with my daughter, for her to not be in the middle of her father and me. He doesn’t see she is in the battle of our bitterness towards each other. Prayers for forgiveness and humility towards him.
