Prayer Ministries


To create a culture of prayer for our Conference, churches, and members that grows them deeper in their relationship with God–giving them strength, courage, and impact in their own lives, the lives of those they love, in their ministries and that ultimately impact their communities.

By My Spirit

Prayer for the Holy Spirit is the foundation of success in God’s work. As church members pray daily for the outpouring of the Spirit, we will see the promised blessing come. “To those who wait humbly upon God…is the Spirit given. The power of God awaits their demand and reception. This promised blessing, claimed by faith, brings all other blessings in its train.” (The Desire of Ages, p. 672)

Prayer is one of our eight strategic initiatives for 2018-2023. We desire to see our members praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It is when we unite together in prayer, then serving and giving, that we will fulfill the mission and reach everyone, everywhere with the gospel.



Join our team in praying for the specific needs of our Conference and ministries. As part of the Pennsylvania Prayer Partners team, you’ll receive monthly emails with prayer requests and updates. We’ve seen God do amazing things in response to these prayers!

Each month we encourage churches and members to lift up one of our schools in prayer throughout the entire month, believing that God impacts our students, their families, and our staff.

October Education Prayer Focus is Gettysburg Adventist Christian School, Gettysburg, Pa.

November Education Prayer Focus is Blue Mountain Elementary, Hamburg, Pa.

December Education Prayer Focus is Blue Mountain Academy, Hamburg, Pa.


Each week we pray for a specific church district or ministry and their pastor/leader enabling us to intentionally cover our entire Conference in prayer throughout the year, uniting us together as we lift each other up and trust God to do amazing things.
