MWPC Power of Prayer

Periodically in the life of the MWPC community we have met for Power of Prayer time of prayer and reflection using a combination of scripture, litany & song plus silent and corporate prayer. These gatherings have ordinarily lasted 20-30 minutes.

During the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic – March 27 through May 15 – we held Power of Prayer using Zoom technology. The sessions began at 5 PM (socializing from 4:45 to 5.)

We are currently on hiatus with no pre-determined plans for when/if these gatherings will convene again. More to follow in the MWPC eBeacon if/when they re-start.



Attending Zoom events is as simple as picking up the phone or getting on the internet using your tablet, Kindle, iPad, computer or smartphone. If you have Zoomed before, simply CLICK HERE If you’re a first-timer to Zoom, see the notes below to get started
