Request prayer

We would love to pray for you, because we believe that prayer changes things. We can pray for you about either a sporting or personal matter. When you request prayer, the matter can be confidential to SCNZ leadership, if that is what you would prefer. We can also share it with our team of prayer partners.

If you would like prayer, then please use this form.

You can also contact your local Regional Leader to find a Sports Chaplain near you who can pray with you in person.

The Power of Prayer

Prayer is a strong wall and fortress of the church; it is a goodly Christian weapon.

Martin Luther

Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness.

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

In my deepest, darkest moments, what really got me through was a prayer. Sometimes my prayer was ‘Help me.’ Sometimes a prayer was ‘Thank you.’ What I’ve discovered is that intimate connection and communication with my creator will always get me through because I know my support, my help, is just a prayer away.

Iyanla Vanzant

Prayer should be the key of the day and the lock of the night.

George Herbert

To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.

Martin Luther

Prayer is man’s greatest power!

W. Clement Stone

One of the greatest attacks of the enemy is to make you busy, to make you hurried, to make you noisy, to make you distracted, to fill the people of God and the Church of God with so much noise and activity that there is no room for prayer. 

Paul Washer

True prayer is neither a mere mental exercise nor a vocal performance. It is far deeper than that – it is spiritual transaction with the Creator of Heaven and Earth.

Charles Spurgeon
