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 have a very important unspoken prayer request. It’s personal between me and the Lord, but I need an answer to this prayer. I’ve written it out and entitled it “Prayer 1”. Please pray that the Lord will fully, powerfully and clearly answer my question in that prayer, beyond what I could imagine. I’ve had this question for a long time. Pray that many people will pray for me, for this prayer request to be answered. I believe the Lord’s answer will be life changing. In Jesus’ name. Thank you so much.

I hope that everyone is hanging in there, doing well and staying safe.

We have so much to be grateful for, the greatest of which is God’s work in us and through us.

My prayer seems somewhat insignificant compared to hardships that many are facing, but it has been significant to me these past eight days since one of our three sibling cats, Lucy, vanished. More significant than losing my job, as that loss got me out of a toxic situation and through God’s guidance we had saved up for such an event.

We rescued Lucy, along with her two littermates as kittens two years ago. They were waiting for us, one of my sons said, because they were kept alive for four months at Animal Services without a foster home.

I’ve spent a great deal of quiet time with Hod these last eight days, and he’s shared with me over and over again in scripture, through signs and through Pastor Ken’s sermon Sunday that I should have faith, absolute trust and confident hope of her safe return home to us.

We’ve completed every suggestion and task put in front of us to do our part to support God’s work to return her home to us safely.

We’re confident for many reasons that someone has picked her up and taken her in.

Will you pray for God’s will in Lucy’s safe return home to us? And will you pray that God speaks to the heart, mind and soul of whomever has taken her in and is caring for her and guides them to our flyers and posters and posts to reach us and takes her to be scanned for her microchip with success so that she can be safely reunited with our family who love her dearly and miss her terribly.

In Jesus Name. Thank you and bless you.

God is good and He has provided (praise) these past stressful, anxious months of uncertainty.

I am still praying that He will open doors for me and lead me to where I am to go, so that I can find an affordable place to live, a job to support me, and a Bible believing church.

After my lease ran out on my home the end of March and My job being furloughed mid-March, I found myself somewhat "homeless" moving my things into storage and myself into a hotel for awhile. I am no longer in the hotel, but now 1000 miles away in a temporary, but less than ideal situation. The stress and anxiety of being somewhat "homeless" is still (for me) more than that of the coronovirus and still my main concern. I would like to bring me and what I have left in storage "home."

My three storage units are now down to one (praise) with most everything donated to the Salvation Army. They weren't picking up, so I brought it to them one trip at a time for days.

I am still with no income due to furlough for the indefinite future and unemployment funds are impossible to get. My former landlord finally, and seemingly unwillingly, returned the entire $4,500 deposit they owed me (praise); first $1000, then $3500. They said they "forgot".

This time has had blessings for me though as I've been able to help others I've crossed paths with. 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.
