Prayer Support Network
Recognizing that kingdom activity is inherently spiritual warfare, the Chalmers Center believes that prayer is central to the success of its mission. The Prayer Support Network consists of people committed to regularly presenting the Chalmers Center’s praises and requests before the throne of God. Members of the network receive monthly prayer cards, giving them an opportunity to pray specifically for the Chalmers Center’s work.

When Moses pleaded, “Please show me Your glory,” You only allowed him a glimpse of Your back, for no man could see Your face and live (Exodus 33:17-33, ESV). We come before You in awe, recognizing that the fullness of Your holiness, love, goodness, and beauty is beyond our finite comprehension. Yet in the miracle of the Incarnation, You revealed Yourself through Christ. Moses could only see Your back. Through Your Son and Your Word, “We have seen His glory, glory as of the only son from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14 ESV). As we love and serve our neighbors, give us joy and contentment in Your all-sufficient power. Fill us with confidence that Your presence goes with us when we pursue holiness and obedience. For we do not have to hide ourselves from You. Rather, our life is hidden in You (Colossians 3:3).
