First and foremost, the purpose of our Prayer Ministry is to lead our church into becoming a House of Prayer where we seek God’s direction FIRST rather than as a last resort. We look for God’s priorities and strategies to show us how to make followers of Christ in our community. We also look for opportunities to connect OFCN intercessors with the larger community of intercessors across denominations in our tri-county area.

What does prayer look like at Ontario Nazarene?

Prayer Chain – made of individuals who are willing to intercede for special prayer requests sent by email from the church office. 

Various Prayer Initiatives/Events – these happen throughout the year and include such things as:

     – 100 Days of Prayer for Upward Basketball (December thru March)

     – National Day of Prayer (first Thursday in May) – community-wide prayer event normally held in Ontario

If you would like to be contacted about your request, please include your phone number or email address. You are encouraged to send in a “praise” when you have experienced an answer to prayer.

Pre-Service Prayer Time – held in the Prayer Room from 9:00-9:15am every Sunday.  The focus of prayer is on the services and our pastors.

Prayer Rooms – 2 locations: the Shalom Prayer Room in Room 117, and the Upper Room Prayer Chapel located on the second floor. Both are quiet places to go and be still before God.

Prayer Ministry Team – a rotation of trained intercessors who pray one-on-one or in pairs, before, during or after services, sometimes in homes and hospitals with those in need. 

We would LOVE for you to participate in any and as many of these as you would like. We are also always looking for new and innovative ways to raise awareness and involvement in prayers. If you have any questions or would like to know more about any of these prayer opportunities please contact the church office by phone at 541-889-2155 or by email at
