Chapel Hill Church is committed to praying for the needs of one another, the community, and the world. In fact, this year, our church has committed to pray for revival within our own community of faith, in our city, for our country, and throughout the world. The Westminster Larger Catechism says “prayer is an offering up of our desires unto God, in the name of Christ, by the help of his Spirit; with confession of our sins, and thankful acknowledgment of his mercies.”

It’s our privilege to pray for you. If you would like someone to pray for you, use the button below to fill out the Prayer Request form, or call us at 253.851.7779.

If you would like to pray for others who have submitted prayer requests, use the button below to be added to the prayer email list.

If you would like a member of the Prayer Team to pray for you after the 9:00 or 10:30 am Sunday worship services, you may come to the Prayer Chapel next to the Sanctuary (near Door E). We also offer regular opportunities for anyone who has healing needs (whether physical, emotional, or spiritual) to receive healing prayer after the 9:00 or 10:30 am Sunday worship services in the Prayer Chapel. Learn more about Chapel Hill’s beliefs on healing.


Do you feel God calling you to serve on the Prayer Team? One of the great privileges and responsibilities of this team is praying for people following each worship service. To find out more, contact Pastor Gunnar Tesdahl.


We want to help you develop a regular habit of prayer in your private devotional life, in your household, and as part of our corporate worshipping community. We’re providing daily prayer prompts for you as Facebook and Instagram reels, and monthly printed versions of the same prompts are available at the wood wall on Sundays. If you prefer a notification option from the Chapel Hill app on your phone, that is available also; go here for details. We hope these prompts enrich your prayer life!

The Lection 365 app is a great free resource to help you get into the daily prayer habit. Download the app below.

Praying together with others in your household is an important way to connect to God as you also connect with one another. Use this resource to help jump-start your household prayer habit.

You can also use the Lectio app for families. This is a helpful way to practice daily or frequent prayer with your children or those in your household.

Revival starts with each of us committing to pray. We invite you to join our pastors any (or even every) Tuesday at 6:00 pm in the Prayer Chapel for a “power hour” of prayer. We’ll pray for our church and its ministries. A pastor will attend every time except when there is a monthly Session meeting. We also invite you to join us for our Prayer and Worship Nights, offered several times throughout the year in the Sanctuary. We will gather to sing and pray for God to revive our church, community, nation, and world.

Pastor Ellis White talks about the basics of prayer, one of several Christian spiritual practices. Watch the entire series here.

Pastor Ellis White prepared this resource for praying through the Lord’s Prayer.

Here are some things the Bible has to say about prayer:

Mark 11:24: “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

Matthew 7:7-8: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Matthew 6:5-8: “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”

Matthew 7:7-8: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Ephesians 6:18: “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”

Philippians 4:6-7: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

James 5:13-16: “Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
