Mt. Zion United Methodist Prayer Chapel
1770 Johnson Ferry Rd.
Type of Prayer Place
The Prayer Chapel in the Mt. Zion United Methodist Church is a wonderful space designed for prayer and meditation. It has a lighted stained glass window in the altar area and a series of chairs facing the altar. Over these chairs are draped prayer shawls that have been hand knit by congregation members for the use of those who visit the chapel if they desire to be wrapped in a prayer shawl to feel God’s comforting presence. Another innovation that I have not seen elsewhere is a video screen to the side of the altar area that continuously scrolls the names of those needing prayer one at a time so those in chapel might be in prayer for each name.
The chapel serves a number of prayer functions. The prayer chapel is open for personal prayer any time the church building is open. During worship services, intercessors are in the prayer chapel praying over prayer requests and praying for the church from 8 AM to 12 noon on Sundays. An intercessor will pray individually with you on Sunday morning or will pray silently as you pray silently. They also offer communion on any Sunday when it is not served in the worship service. The prayer chapel also is the operations headquarters for the intercessory prayer ministry of the church where intercessors are able to access prayer requests and cover as many as time allows. There is also a resource library of prayer books.
How I used this place of prayer
I visited the prayer chapel prior to a speaking engagement at Mt. Zion and was given a tour of the chapel by the prayer ministry leader. The room was very peaceful and restful and a good place to get in touch with God before I spoke.
Hours of Operation & Admission Requirements
