Prayer is at the heart of who and what we are, and prayer covers and empowers every ministry of our church. God is building us into a house of prayer, a place of love and power and healing.

House of Prayer
Our church has a mandate from the Lord to become a house of prayer. As Isaiah 56:7 states, “…my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”

  • We pray to seek His presence
  • We pray to recognize His presence
  • We pray to respond to His presence
  • We pray for each other
  • We pray for the lost, the orphans, and the widows
  • We pray for our city and the salvation of the lost
  • We pray for His kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven

Need Prayer?

We'd love to pray for you! We have a team of people who are committed to pray with people and for people. Complete the prayer request form and we will begin praying with you.


How good it is to hear someone say, “I am praying for you!” To pray for another, encourage one another, build each other up, to intercede on another’s behalf through Jesus to the Father — this is one of the greatest expressions of love.

Wonderful Mercy has trained Prayer Teams who are not only willing but delighted to pray with you. Just as Jesus intercedes for us to the Father (Romans 8:34), we have the privilege of interceding for others in the precious name of Jesus.
Personal prayer is available through various venues:

  • Prayer Team members are available after each service to pray with you
  • Prayer requests may be submitted through the Connection Cards gathered during Sunday worship services
  • Prayer requests may be submitted at any time to prayer@wonderfulmercy.org. These prayer request are then distributed to the Prayer Team members for prompt attention
  • Prayer requests may be made to the pastors or any Prayer Team member.

The Prayer Garden

This is a community Prayer Garden.

It is open to all people, twenty-four hours a day, every day of the year. 

This Prayer Garden is not our own. It is not even our own idea. We did not think it up; it has not sprung from the wellspring of our ambition or imagination. We did not congress together, brainstorming, until we hit upon the magnificent thought, “Here’s what we’ll do: we’ll build a Prayer Garden.”

We believe the Prayer Garden is God’s idea for the southeast valley, to make a place for fervent, sustained, focused, and Impossible prayer. The kind of prayers that changes things. The kind of prayer that changes us. 

As you come to pray in this place — and we hope you will do so often — know that this Garden is a sanctuary for the Presence and a place where God’s peace abides. It is a dangerous square of land on which the invasive love of God will pour out through the consistent, contending prayers of Jesus’ friends, whose many voices will converge upon one purpose, the fulfillment of the prayer that Jesus taught his co-conspirators: "Our Father in heaven, …your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."

Wonderful Mercy Church built the Prayer Garden, but we do not own it—it belongs to the Lord. We are merely stewards of this gift to the community.

You are welcome here. 

Inner Healing Immanuel Prayer

Whether you are trying to get free from the entanglements of childhood wounds or interested in deepening your bond with God, Inner Healing Immanuel Prayer is for you. Immanuel Prayer is an approach that helps people find the presence of God in places of pain in order to receive healing and freedom. It also helps people practice the presence of God on a daily basis. It is extremely effective at helping people connect with God to bring restoration and to build joy. This is done in a loving and safe environment. To schedule an appointment contact Pastor Lee.

Immanuel means “God with us."  This promise is the foundation for Immanuel Prayer.  It's primary objectives are to deepen intimacy with God, permanently resolve past pain, and discern God's ongoing guidance.  It is organized around turning to Jesus, focusing on Jesus, and engaging directly with Jesus at every point in the session. Its ultimate goal is helping us get to the place where we perceive the Lord’s presence, and abide in an interactive connection with Jesus, as a normal part of our every day life.

This approach to inner healing prayer has been championed by Dr. Karl Lehman, M.D.  Dr. Lehman (www.KCLehman.com) is a board-certified psychiatrist with twenty-five years and more than forty thousand hours of clinical experience. He has worked tenaciously throughout his career to integrate his personal Christian faith with medical science, modern mental health care, and his rigorous scientific training; and he has especially worked to integrate faith-based emotional healing with insights provided by psychological and neurological research.
