Core prayer team

We at EMM believe that God is calling us into "ridiculous” amounts of prayer.

So we are looking for intercessors willing to commit to one hour of EMM-related prayer each week. These intercessors will receive a monthly email with one or two priority prayer requests to help guide their prayers.

No meetings are required. Members of this core prayer team are encouraged to share what they are hearing in prayer and are welcome to join EMM prayer gatherings as they are able.

Prayer is the channel through which God's power flows to bring His kingdom on earth. Our vision is to see that channel growing in size and strength so that we can see even greater transformation taking place around the world.

To join EMM's core prayer team, please contact Krystle Thorne. Let's pray ridiculous amounts of prayer!
