The Ridgecrest Baptist Church Prayer Ministry is based on three concepts using the acronym ICE.
People who commit to pray for certain ministries within the church and for circumstances beyond RBC church walls are intentional in their prayers. People who commit to pray during certain days are consistent in their prayers. People who commit to pray for the needs of the church, city, state, country, and world are engaged in being part of God’s work and thereby are an effective part of the kingdom of God.
We have teams that pray for the Pastor, the Music Ministry, the Youth Ministry, the Children’s Ministry, the needs of church members, the church administration team, and global concerns.
- Adoration is prayer that involves the recognition of who God is and what He does (Psalms 148 and 150).
- Confession recognizes the holiness of God and His supreme moral authority, together with the personal responsibility of the one making confession (Psalm 51).
- Thanksgiving recognizes that God’s goodness is the respect of what He has done for the one who prays or for others (Psalm 95:1-2).
- Supplication is praying for the needs of our self and others (Matt. 6:9-13).
