Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." – Philippians 4:6-7

Highly revered in our core beliefs, Asbury believes prayer is an essential part of our intimate relationship with God. Just as you frequently communicate with your friends, family and loved ones to build and maintain those relationships, the same is true when investing in your relationship with God. Prayer is a time to truly speak your heart, glorify God and listen for His wisdom and guidance. There is no prayer that is too big or too small. If you have a passion for prayer, want to grow in your prayer life or are curious about prayer in-general, check out ways to connect with Asbury’s Prayer Ministry below!

Acts 29 Prayer Ministry

The Acts 29 Prayer Ministry prays daily for different aspects of Asbury using a Prayer Emphasis Sheet that rotates every 40 days. Inspired by the 28-chapter book of Acts, Acts seems as though it is not finished because God intends each local church to continue in the same manner and ministry as the Acts Church to the present day world. We believe what happened in Acts can happen in our church, if we pray as one, united community. If you need an Acts 29 Emphasis Sheet, email Cheryl Steffen, Asbury Prayer Coordinator at

Prayer Meetings and Services

  • Sunday “Take 15” Prayer Meeting - Come join praying friends for a “Take 15” prayer opportunity on Sunday mornings from 10:35-10:50 in the Main Prayer Room. This prayer time will be a short purposeful and powerful time of prayer for Asbury and the worship services.
