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 lift up my wife Julia for healing from anxiety. We are seperated and this is a major roadblock in the pathway to reconciliation in our marriage. Ask God to help me be a part of alleviating that anxiety and to know when I am adding to it. My family needs this Christmas miracle as our gift. Divorce shall not be our portion and this will not be our family legacy to our kids.
