Can we pray for you?

Welcome to the Freedom Church Community Prayer Wall.

We believe that God cares about you, that God hears prayers, and that He answers prayer.  And as a community, Freedom Church would love to pray for you.  We are collecting prayer requests on this page, and inviting everyone in Freedom Church to visit the page regularly to pray through the requests we have received.  If you need some practical help, please complete the form on our homepage instead.

If you would like us to pray for you, or for a particular situation or concern, please complete the form below.  Please avoid giving personal details in the prayer request as this page is public.  Prayer requests will be edited to ensure anonymity and suitability and, therefore, they may take a while before they appear on the prayer wall.  If you choose to put in your name, we will only include your first name.  If you choose to put in an email address, a member of our team may contact you in due course by email, but this would not be shown below.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”
