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).
- Strategic Prayer Warriors
“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
At CLC we have many blessings for which we are thankful and have concerns for which we need guidance and discernment. Because of our relationship with Jesus, we are bold to present our requests to the Father, seeking His will and knowing that He will answer us. Would you consider being a “Strategic Prayer Warrior” and for six months pray daily that the hearts of people at CLC are aligned with God’s will for His church?
A Strategic Prayer Warrior will:
- Commit to daily prayer
- Diligently pray for specific ministry needs
- Speak only to the Lord about the prayer requests as confidentiality is essential
Strategic Prayer Warriors will receive an email once a week which will include a Scripture passage, prayer requests, and answered prayers. Strategic Prayer Warriors may find it helpful to journal what God reveals to them through meditation and prayer. If led by the Holy Spirit, they are encouraged to share with the staff ministry leader (Pastor Max Murphy) any relevant scripture they have read. The staff ministry leader may then, in turn, forward them anonymously to the other Strategic Prayer Warriors.
Ready to get involved?
If you are an adult committed to lifting the ministry of CLC up in prayer daily, simply complete the form below, contact Pastor Max Murphy (click here to email), or call 317.814.4252.
- Prayer Chain
Our church has a dedicated group of disciples who lift up the coming week's altar prayers. To be placed on this email distribution list, contact Phyllis Mesenbrink.
- 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!
