Join Us in Prayer!



In this time, much prayer is needed. Western Pennsylvania United Methodists and friends have two opportunities to join with others in prayer.

Annual Conference Virtual Prayer Room

Beginning tomorrow, Friday, Oct. 2, the Annual Conference Prayer Team invites you to the Annual Conference 2020 Virtual Prayer Room. The Virtual Prayer Room will be open from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2 and Saturday, Oct. 3.  Personal prayer sessions are available during those hours. These private prayer sessions are open to all. Please sign up in advance, if possible. Details and sign-up information are available at

You can also simply visit  on Friday or Saturday to check for available prayer times.
This is an opportunity to break free of the limitations of location and join with others in prayer!

COVID-19 Daily Prayer Initiative

Following Annual Conference, on Monday, Oct. 5, a Conference-wide COVID-19 Daily Prayer Initiative will begin.  A daily video with scripture and prayers written by the Rev. Dr. Renee Mikell and Rev. Chris Kindle will be posted on the Conference website at and social media each weekday for 19 days to guide you. You're encouraged to pray at the 19th hour of the day, which is 7 p.m. 

We hope you'll be part of these prayer efforts. Invite your friends, neighbors and congregation, especially prayer groups and small groups, to pray with us.
