OurPrayer
A Prayer Service of Guideposts

Volunteer With Us

Thank you for your interest in being an OurPrayer volunteer. OurPrayer prays for people of all beliefs, however, we require that our prayer volunteers agree with our “Statement of Faith” and agree to abide by our “Volunteer Covenant”.

Please read below and respond:

OurPrayer “Statement of Faith”

  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God.
  • We believe in one God who is revealed to us in three persons: God the Father who has created us in His own image, Jesus Christ, God’s Son and our Lord, who died for the forgiveness of our sins, and the Holy Spirit whose presence guides our daily lives.
  • We believe in Jesus Christ’s incarnation, death, resurrection, and His coming again.
  • We believe in the power of prayer, which lifts the problems of our daily lives, our families and our communities directly to God.
