"Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you."

Matthew 7:7



The power of prayer should not be underestimated. James 5:16-18 declares, "…The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops." God most definitely listens to prayers, answers prayers, and moves in response to prayers.

Jesus taught, "…I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you" (Matthew 17:20).


Are you facing a particular need or problem in your life? Do you know someone who is? Sometimes we don't know where to begin or even how to ask God for help.

Your St. Matthew Church family is here to help.

The purpose of Prayer Requests is to offer encouragement and to uplift those we are praying for. Never underestimate the power of prayer!

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. -Romans 8:26

PLEASE NOTE: We do not want Prayer Requests to be misconstrued as gossip. We will only be passing along the exact information, as little as it may be, to others for the purpose of prayer only.


Do you know of someone who is having problems? Someone who is in need of prayers?

"Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective." -James 5:16

And the Lord restored the fortunes of Job, when he had prayed for his friends. And the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. -Job 42:10

prayer requests for yourself

QUESTION: Would it be “selfish” to ask for prayers yourself?

ANSWER: Absolutely not!

And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart. -Luke 18:1


Names can be anonymous if you would like prayers for yourself or someone else.

If there is something that you would like to keep private, please make sure Pastor Enderle know this! You may tell us the “whole story”, but may not necessarily want it to be shared. It would be important for us to know that.

Please be assured that your information is kept confidential.



If you or someone you know is in need of prayers, please feel free to contact Pastor Enderle.

One of my favorite verses when my daughter was sick was Romans 12:12
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer.”  
- Amanda B.

For the Christian, all misery is temporary.

For the non-Christian, all pleasure is temporary.


1. Your thumb is nearest to you. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for our loved ones is, as C.S. Lewis once said, a “sweet duty”.

2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need God’s guidance.

4. The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger; as any piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You cannot pray too much for them.

5. And lastly comes our little finger; the smallest finger of all. Which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others. As the Bible says, “the least shall be the greatest among you.” Your pinky should remind you to pray for yourself. By the time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.
