"And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father." (John 14:13)
Prayer is the lifeblood of the church. It is vital to our relationships with God and each other. Prayer brings both the individual and the church into union with God, centers our lives in him, and leads us to ask for God's kingdom to come and his will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Our desire is for God to be the One who builds his church, and we believe that this will happen through prayer. As pastor and author, Jim Cymbala, wrote, "No matter what I preach or what we claim to believe in our heads, the future will depend upon our time of prayer..."

The Prayer Circle mobilizes the church in response to urgent prayer requests. These requests are sent through email throughout the church to those who have expressed their desire to pray for one another. Email Becky Borland at prayer @ westgate-church.org if you have an urgent request or wish to be a part of this prayer circle.
Our prayer room is available for individual and group prayer during the times that the church is open. There are prayer helps, ideas, testimonies and Scriptures available for those who wish to use them.
Three elders and four other church members make up a prayer team that prays for personal needs, encourages prayer throughout the church, oversees the prayer room and assists those seeking to develop prayer ministries. Anyone with a passion for uniting with God in prayer is welcome to be a part of this team.
