Men and women of faith are people of prayer. Prayer deepens our connection with our Heavenly Father and leads to spiritual power and action. In prayer we seek God, worship Him, humble ourselves before Him, and receive His wisdom. As we spend time with Him, our lives increasingly reflect Him to those around us.
We all need prayer, support and encouragement at times. Zion is committed to intercessory prayer—prayer on behalf of others and on behalf of the work of the church. Each week, staff pray for a segment of our members and worshiping friends. We encourage everyone who desires prayer on his or her behalf or on behalf of another, to use the resources on this page.
Private Prayer Wall
Anyone actively involved at Zion can share prayer and praise requests with others in the congregation through Zion’s online community at ZionBuffalo.TableProject.org. Those requesting prayer can choose to be notified when others are praying their requests, and prayers have the option of leaving a note or personal prayer in response. Many members have found this to be a great addition to their prayer life.
Zion’s prayer chain is made up of Christians with hearts for prayer. Prayer chain members receive prayer requests by phone, or email, or through the Table from a fellow Zion member and pass it along to another prayer chain ‘link.’
Zion’s Prayer Room
If you would like some quiet time for meditation and prayer consider Zion’s Prayer Room at the North end of the building near the first back entrance.
