With a team positioned in a high-traffic area, we simply make ourselves available to share the Gospel, have meaningful discussion, and to pray with people for anything they have need of. After prayer they often share more in depth about what they’re going through and we’re able to dialogue further about important issues of life and faith. Whether it’s helping someone find directions, providing a listening ear, or believing God for good things in someone’s life, we value each person and the opportunity to serve in any way. Time and time again we have seen people come back to the Prayer Station and testify of family restoration, favor finding a job, healing, and commitment to Jesus. Bibles, books, and other literature in various languages are free for those interested.
Many who have never shared their faith, or struggle doing so, are challenged by serving at a Prayer Station, but ultimately find it very helpful in developing their way of communicating the Good News. Those who pray find themselves as encouraged as those being prayed for. Some have taken the idea of a Prayer Station back to their hometown to serve their community. You can too by visiting prayerstations.org.
SLM set up a Prayer Station at Ground Zero to serve the 9/11 relief workers. Read the story on our World Trade Center Crisis page.
“A man came to the prayer station in Jamaica, Queens and said he wanted prayer. This man was addicted to drugs and used to walk with God. I was able to call a team member that had been delivered from drugs and had him share his testimony. The man cried and was so touched that he wanted to go to detox. We prayed for this man believing that God will move in his life and be stirred for a changed life.”
