Morning Prayer


The practice of morning prayer can be traced back to the earliest believers.  Throughout history, the commitment to prayer at daybreak has taken many forms, but the primary motivation has always remained the same: Before the issues of each day rush in and demand our attention, we come together to turn our hearts and minds to the God who loves us.

We gather every weekday morning from 7:00 – 7:30 for prayer. We take time to center our hearts on the risen Christ and lift up the needs of our neighborhood and world.

Our daily prayer service is influenced by several different “streams” of common prayer…  we read Scripture… we sing old hymns, gospel songs, and new choruses… and we also engage elements from different prayer communities around the world, including the TaizĂ© Community in France, the Northumbria Community in the U.K., and the New Monastic communities spread all over the U.S.

We begin promptly at 7:00 a.m. and we say a final “Go in peace” right at 7:30 a.m.  Come and join us!


In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. Psalm 5:3 (NIV)
