Prayer Request

…For My house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples.
~Isaiah 56:7

There are many ways that Benton Methodist Church is a house of prayer.  Our Prayer Ministry seeks to Share the love of Jesus by praying for family and friends whose needs are made known to us.

Intercessory Prayer Team:
Prayer intercessors meet every Tuesday morning at 10:30 AM in the Ed DeBusk Memorial Prayer Chapel to pray for prayer requests submitted through a Prayer Request card or called into the church office.

Prayer Chain:
There are 20 members on the Prayer Chain who stand ready to pray at a moment’s notice for an immediate need. Simply text Nancy Stinson at (318) 455-4350 at any time day or night, and she will send out a group text so there is an immediate response in prayer. This is generally reserved for critical prayer requests.


Prayer requests can also be made by calling the church office at (318) 965-2273, emailing at



In my MA program, I have many large projects coming up. I feel overwhelmed and have trouble focusing. Pray that God will teach me to focus and concentrate well. Pray for great wisdom and efficiency in my studies. Pray that God will teach me new strategies and tactics for success in this program. Pray that I will prioritize my studies well, and for great efficiency. Pray that the Lord my Shephard will be my mentor, my advocate and my teacher, guiding and advising me in my studies. Pray for strength, mental fortitude and determination in my studies—with all the energy Christ provides. Pray that the Lord will take charge of my studies, and that every project will be done with excellence and all the victory and glory will belong to Christ—and that God will use me for His glory in my studies. Thank you!
