God tells us to pray and he promises to hear our prayers and answer them. The Prayer Team firmly believes in that promise and supports efforts like the Intercessory Prayer Group, Prayer Chain, Strategic Prayer Warriors, and Prayer Shawls.

Additional Prayer Opportunities
- Prayer of Healing & Anointing
Cornerstone Lutheran offers a pastor-led Prayer of Healing and Anointing (with oil) at each of our ministry sites on the 4th Sunday of the month, promptly following the late services. There will be instructions during the late service that day on where to meet.
- Intercessory Prayer Group
Do you have a heart to lift up the body of Christ in prayer? Praying God’s Word is powerful and effective! CLC’s Intercessory Prayer Group invites you to join them to offer prayers for members and friends of our congregation, as well as the community and world, as led by the Holy Spirit. (Prayer requests are confidential and do not leave the group.)
Our Intercessory Prayer Group meets every Thursday night in the Carmel Prayer Chapel beginning at 6:30 pm.
Join in when you can—you don’t need to commit to every week! For more information, contact Anja Nitz (click here to email, or call 317.418.7922).

- Commit to daily prayer for a specific six-month period

- Prayer Shawl Ministry
Knitting or crocheting is a wonderful way to use your talents to help others feel a bit of comfort. Cancer Companions is working to complete 500 comfort bags for local cancer patients. Each bag includes a hand knitted or crocheted shawl. Donated shawls can be dropped off at any church site (mark them “prayer shawls, Carmel site”). Questions? Contact Robin Wong (click here) or Cindy Koelsch (click here).
Want to knit/crochet in fellowship with others? Join us on various Mondays from 7-8:30 pm in the Carmel Seniors Lounge. (Please contact Robin or Cindy, listed above, for dates.) Bring your own supplies. Don’t know how to knit or crochet? This is the perfect time to learn!
