Prayer for the week: God we can't ignore the things we need to talk about. We can't bury our feelings. That's like holding a beach ball under the surface of the water. Eventually, we lose our grip and get smacked in the face. Talking about our troubles is uncomfortable and sometimes painful and embarrassing. Help us get over it, God. We have to make room inside us to grow as human beings, and we can't do that with all the clutter of thoughts and feelings that have no direction. Help us make room, God. Give us courage. Give us strength. Help us bring things out into the open so we may fill the empty space with knowledge and love. AMEN.

We believe in the power of prayer and its ultimate ability to bring us into closer relationship with God. We have two prayer teams at Mesa View:
Our Prayer Partners pray for the church and its leaders. Each day one member of our team is praying for the concerns of the moment.
Intercessory Prayer Team
Each week during worship we lift up prayer concerns and celebrations, and we receive others throughout the week. Our intercessory prayer teams lifts up these prayer concerns and celebrations every day as part of their own daily prayers.
Our prayer teams usually gather each month to learn about prayer and to pray for the church and for each other. Check our calendar for the next prayer breakfast.
