Prayer Ministry

Prayer Minister – Marjorie Pickel

Prayer is vital to our congregation, both corporately and individually.

The Prayer Minister prepares weekly prayer guides that contain specific prayer requests and focus the people’s prayer.

Thoughtful articles in the monthly church newsletter also give further insights on prayer.

Following each worship service individuals may seek personal prayer in the Prayer Room. behind the sanctuary. Requests are also prayed for in the prayer room.

Prayer shields are maintained for our pastor and leadership.

Telephone and e-mail prayer chains are activated as needs arise in the congregation and community throughout the week.

Special events such as prayer walks and praise and healing services are arranged on an occasional basis.

We do a School Prayer Walk around the Avon Grove Schools, the Charter School and The ABVM Catholic School every August before school starts.

As part of our Worship Service once a month we give people a chance to come forward and have the Elders pray for them. If you are in need of prayer, call the church office at 610-268-2919 or email Marge Pickel.

The Healing Prayer Ministry located at the Avondale Presbyterian Church, 416 Pennsylvania Avenue, Avondale, Pa., is open for prayer the first Saturday of each month 10 AM to 12 Noon. Anyone in need of prayer at other times during the month can call 610-268-1646 or 610-268-2919 to make an appointment. We encourage the sick or anyone carrying a burden to come and receive healing prayer from trained technicians. We have seen some people healed. We welcome all who come.
