Prayer is such a fundamental part of our walk as a Christian, and we are all called to pray in our own personal capacities as we commune and grow in our relationship with God. As a church we are also here to pray for each other and to stand in faith for God’s answers to our prayers and petitions. And as a church we also recognize the importance of the ministry of collective prayer, where we make time to get together as members of the body of Christ to pray for various things often not related to our own personal lives.
There are always opportunities to pray and we would really encourage everyone to grab any opportunity there is to pray – on one’s own, for someone else, or with others – for who knows the power of prayer to advance God’s kingdom among us!
Prayer needs list
These are the key areas we believe as a church need prayer into at this time:
- For the pandemic to end
- For revival and many to come to salvation
- For the physical and financial health of our people and their families
- For our government and economy to strengthen
- For more rain in Port Elizabeth’s catchment area
- For good governance in our local municipality
- For the poor and destitute in our local community
Please add these to your prayer list when spending time with the Lord to intercede into these areas
Corporate Prayer meetings
These are powerful times of agreeing together for specific prayer requests and also just leaning into the Holy Spirit as a congregation. These happen occasionally throughout the year and as the need arises and usually take place in the Harvest auditorium or online. Please watch our news for upcoming events.
Various monthly and weekly prayer meetings
Throughout the week and month various different ministries get together to pray. These include mens, ladies, business, our school, our mission partners etc. Anyone with a heart for intercession is welcome to join as we lift up different requests and opportunities to the Lord, and just pray together as the Holy Spirit leads.

Sunday pre-service prayers
Our teams gather for 30 minutes before Sunday services to lift the service and all its elements up to the Lord and also to just lay down everything before God for Him to have His way, not ours. The service host leads this meeting, and the worship team and pastoral staff are present, but any harvester is very welcome to join.
