Prayer & Pastoral Care

Our ministers would be happy to stop by the hospital for prayer, encouragement and support if you or a WCC family member are hospitalized for any reason. If you or another WCC family member have surgery scheduled, they will come before the surgery to pray with you as well as visit afterwards to offer encouragement and support.

Please let us know when you are hospitalized, or if you know of another WCC family member who is, and you will be added to the hospital visitation schedule. Contact the Prayer Ministry or call the church office at 614-885-8389 (after hours voicemail: extension 116).

NOTE: If you have a prayer request that you DO NOT want published on the prayer chain, please make note of that when you submit your request. We have a ministry team that will pray for you regardless, we just won’t push that request out to our congregation of prayer warriors if those are your wishes.

As always, we respect your right to privacy and understand that not everyone wishes for a personal visit. If you would like to opt out of a minister visit, but would appreciate prayerful support, we would be more than happy to accommodate you. Simply tell us what you require from us in your time of need and we will do everything we can to help. Feel free to contact a minister directly if you wish.

Why Pray?

  • To seek God’s will in your personal life.
  • To access God’s resources.
  • To praise Him and give Him thanks.
  • To seek forgiveness and submission.
  • To bring hope and the abundant life He promised.

The Prayer Chain
Prayer requests are collected via email, phone calls into the office and/or Connect Cards. Requests are then reviewed for any privacy concerns before being sent out to the prayer chain that evening. (Emergency prayer requests will go out as soon as possible.)

All WCC members are encouraged to join the prayer chain. If you’d like to join, please email your request to

Prayer During Church Services
The 56:7 team lead prayers in the Prayer Room (rm. 124) during each  church service on Sundays at 8:30, 9:45 and 11:00 AM. You’re welcome to join us during that time as we offer prayer and praise to God.

We follow the “ACTS” model of prayer. We begin with:

A for adoration to God
C for confession (silent or out loud)
T for thanksgiving
S for supplication or requests

National Day of Prayer: 24- Hour Prayer Vigil

The National Day of Prayer is on Thursday, May 2 and it is a day originally designated by the US Congress for the purpose to have American citizens “turn to God in prayer and meditation.” The theme for this year’s National Day of Prayer is “Love One Another,” based upon the words of Jesus in John 13:34, which says, “Love one another just as I have loved you.”

We encourage the entire body of believers at Worthington Christian Church to also “turn to God in prayer and meditation” on Thursday, May 2. Toward the end, we are asking members to dedicate an hour of prayer to the Lord at home. We would like for you to choose an hour to pray at home by yourself or with the whole family and use this registration form as your personal commitment to do so.

Wondering what to pray? Please pray about whatever is upon your heart. However, we do hope that you will spend some time meditating and praying about this year’s theme, ‘Love One Another.’

A handy guide about this year’s prayer theme is available for FREE in the Prayer Room (rm. 124). You may also download the Prayer Guide from the National Day of Prayer website for $2.99. It is so exciting to think how God will answer an entire nation of Christians united in prayer!

Questions? Please feel free to contact Dave Krebs or Shirley Myers.

NOTE: You may use the Prayer Room to pray on May 2, but ONLY during regular business hours (8:00 AM to 4:30 PM). Otherwise, you will be praying AT HOME.

Also, please remember the time that you are volunteering for as you will NOT receive a reminder.
