Neighborhood Prayer Box


A revamped mailbox at the Buckingham Road Church of Christ allows neighbors to leave cards asking members to pray for specific needs. The Neighborhood Prayer Box features a picture of praying hands and appeals in English, Spanish and Vietnamese for the community to share prayer requests.

“It’s overwhelming to us when we consider that those who have deep physical and spiritual difficulties... would entrust us, virtually strangers, with the responsibility to present their desires to God,” elder Willie Hunter said.

Each month, the church prepares at least 100 prayer request postcards for homes and businesses and asks for God’s blessings on the recipients.
