All glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.   (Ephesians 4:20)

The Bible is replete with encouragement for us to pray. It is a fundamental expression of our relationship with God, and something we all called to do.

But there are some who just love to spend time in the presence of the Lord and who have a special ministry of intercession. On Monday mornings a team gather to bring before the Lord the various ministries, leaders and pastoral staff of our church.

They commence with prayers of praise and adoration, and in allowing the Lord to speak to them through the Scriptures. They then wait upon the Lord and invite the Holy Spirit to direct the focus of their prayers, as they cooperate with what He is doing.

On many occasions people with special needs have sought prayer from our intercessors and they have been deeply ministered to. Likewise, prayer needs that people have written from Sunday services are presented to the Lord by our intercessors.

Our intercessors group is open for others to join with them. If you’d like further information, either to join this group of intercessors, or to share requests for prayer, contact the Church Office and we will put in touch (P: 07-838 0375; E: reception@hcbc.co.nz)
