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!

Please pray for my health, finances and marriage.

My skin is disfiguring. It has almost covered every part of my body. I am tired of being looked at as a monster. The doctor has diagnosed me with stage 4-5 kidney disease. I have got to have a miracle. Please pray the doctor said that all of my tests must come back with all good results. Pray for my marriage to be in unity, and my husband will be healed of diabetes and all of its symptoms. Thank you in advance.

My husband Steve and I have been involved in a brutal divorce, and his girlfriend, Gisela, has been fanning the flame to make it even more of a blood bath. Steve and Gisela have unraveled our family, and my kids, grandkids and I have been severely impacted by their ungodly choices. Please pray that God would sow discord between my husband and his girlfriend and that the Holy Spirit would take over all the divorce details and enable our attorneys to work well together to come to a dignified conclusion. It's been a 3-year struggle and I need a miracle. Thank You.

Bless you, prayer partner, for taking these urgent petitions to the Lord:

1) The restoration of mind and marriage, and most importantly reconciliation of their covenant with Christ as Head, for a St. Petersburg couple; 2) a young boy for a shunt procedure and recovery, and 3) another boy diagnosed with a serious syndrome that he and family would find faith, the child would continue to progress, and that God would provide finances.
