The Prayer Closet
First Presbyterian Church – Midland, Texas
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
---Matthew 6:6 (King James Version)
Located just west of the main reception desk (Texas Street entrance), the Prayer Closet is for anyone who wishes a quiet place to pray. The contemplative space includes a prayer kneeler, a desk, and comfortable seating for individuals or small groups. The Prayer Closet is staffed Monday – Friday from Noon to 2:00p.m., with an individual committed to pray for the people listed on the FPC Prayer List, the staff, and for any other concerns specifically directed to the Prayer Closet. The Prayer Closet may also be reserved as a place to meet for small groups or prayer partners. If you are in need of Prayer or you would like to be a regular Prayer Closet intercessor, contact Bonnie Sanders or Carolyn Price. 432.684.7821 ex 129
