I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. – Matthew 18:19 (NLT)
Prayer is a priority at University Carillon. In addition to regularly scheduled times of prayer that are open to all (Mondays at noon on Zoom), we distribute a weekly list of items needing prayer to all who request it. (Prayer items that are confidential are routed to the pastors.)
If you have prayer requests you would like brought to a prayer group, or sent confidentially to the pastors, use the form below.
Let us know if you or someone you know is experiencing illness or anticipating surgery or hospitalization … or if you need pastoral help in an emergency. Send a quick email; or, if your need is urgent, call (407) 404-2411.
If you have specific spiritual or material needs, a pastor will meet with you to provide counseling, referrals and/or assistance.
