PRAYER REQUESTS:  When you enter Mt. Olivet, the 

podium in the entryway no only provides a sign-in book

for visitors and newcomers, but also has cards to fill out 

for your prayer requests.  Please feel free to fill out a card, 

fold it over, and give it to an usher to present to Pastor 

Jerry before the Worship Service.  The Power of Prayer 

is Truly Undeniable.  AMEN.


If you have a prayer request that needs to be lifted up for our Prayer Meeting on Wednesday evenings, please drop your request in the PRAYER BOX in the Narthex.  We will be sure to pray for your request and pray on your request.


 

Mt. Olivet is known as a praying church, and we 

earnestly pray for your concerns. 



PRAYER REQUEST CRITERIA:

We are all witnesses to the power of prayer.  We all need 

to pray.  We all need prayer.  It deepens our relationship

with God the Father.  When a prayer request is sent out 

via email or appears in the bulletin (or here on the website)

it is because permission has been granted.  This protects 

the privacy for those who do not want that.  Generally, 

requests are listed for two (2) weeks, unless longer is 

requested or needed.
