Upper Room Prayer Line receives 264,940 prayer requests in 2015
South Carolina Conference top giver
NASHVILLE, Tenn.––In a March 3 report to the UM Men Foundation, Migdiel Pérez, manager of the Upper Room Living Prayer Center, expressed appreciation for 2015 contributions from UM Men totaling $26,756.
Those financial gifts enabled the Nashville-based ministry to respond to 264,940 prayer requests in 2015.
“Thank you for your faithful contributions, both financial and–equally important––the many hours of service provided by UM Men groups across the nation,” said Pérez.
Last year, 141,287 people called The Upper Room Prayer Line to ask for prayers; 2,400 sent letters describing their problems and asking for prayers; 120,703 posted requests on the prayer wall of the website; 300 sent requests by email; and 250 asked for prayers via social media.
Four hundred global prayer partners and more than 500 trained volunteers responded to the 264,940 prayer requests.
“As our ministry continues to grow, one of our biggest challenges is to stay current with current technologies,” said Pérez. “We have become mobile friendly so persons in need of prayer can reach us with any electronic device.”
Prayer Advocates attending the March 3-6 meeting brought checks totaling $13,350.
Pérez honored South Carolina Conference for raising $4,500, the highest total given by a conference to the national prayer ministry.
