“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Prayer Ministry

We are called to be a community of prayer. We know that God honors a praying people and we trust God to lead our church when we remain humble and seeking.  There are many ways to become part of the prayer ministries at Franklin First UMC.
  • Daily Prayer Teams:

    We meet daily at 6:30 a.m. in the Historic Sanctuary at Fifth Avenue (Get Directions) to pray by reading scripture over individuals, our church, community, nation, military and Israel. We are perhaps at a point in history at which there has been no greater need for prayer, and our mission is to seek Divine power to answer the questions of this life.

    As we are individually touched by prayer, our church is strengthened. As our church is strengthened, we impact the community around us. As our community is impacted, our nation is renewed. As our nation is renewed, we influence the world. If we can pray for you, please come or email Mike Bellini at Or, if you would like to join in these prayers, we invite you to come anytime.

  • Prayer Chain:

    We have a very active prayer chain where requests are shared and prayed over. If you would like to be part of the Franklin First Prayer Chain Ministry please contact Carolyn Rosenberg in the church office, 615-794-2734.

  • Sunday Morning Prayers:
    We offer a time for prayer each Sunday morning in the E.M. Bounds Prayer Room at the Main Campus at Mack Hatcher immediately after the 10:00 a.m. service. (Get Directions)
