KARM is powered by prayer.

– Oswald Chambers

Prayer Ministry Form

Every Bed Every Day

We want every person who spends the night at KARM to be prayed for—every bed, every day. We don’t know who will spend the night in these beds, but God does. Because we believe so strongly in the power of prayer, we want to invite you to bring 300 EBED cards and place one on each pillow as you pray over the beds in our overnight dorms. To set up a time to come, contact Jo-Ann Hansen at jhansen@karm.org.

EBED Activity Sheet

Pray where you are.

If you are unable to come to KARM, you can pray where you are for daily needs at KARM. See our daily prayer calendar below.

Pray for patients in our Respite Center—for them to heal from their physical illnesses; for them to experience mental, emotional and spiritual healing while in Respite; for hope to be rekindled; and for them to be encouraged to begin a new life journey.

MONDAY

Pray for Frontline, Crossroads and Care Center volunteers and staff who minister to our guests—for wisdom, strength, protection, and that they would be able to usher guests into the presence of God.

Pray for guests—that their hearts and minds would be open to receive the help they need; for physical, emotional and mental healing; for courage to take those first hard steps; and for perseverance.

TUESDAY

Pray for LaunchPoint volunteers and staff—for wisdom, compassionate boldness and protection.

Pray for our LaunchPoint students—for courage in the face of doubt and humility in the presence of God; for hope to be reawakened and strength to do the next right thing; for perseverance as they make progress toward their goals; for them to be restored to God, themselves, their family and community.

WEDNESDAY

Pray for Outreach volunteers and staff—for them to be protected from evil and danger; for them to be given words to help the hurting who come to CityNights; for them to be light amid darkness; and for them to experience the strengthening joy of the Lord.

Pray for those who come to CityNights—for their hearts to be open to believe God loves them just as they are and has a purpose for them; for courage and humility to accept help; for protection and guidance.

FRIDAY

Pray for Berea volunteers and staff—for wisdom, guidance and patience; for God’s Word to dwell richly in them; for encouragement and perseverance.

Pray that Berea students remain teachable and continue to grow in gratitude and in their leadership of other students; that they grow in community and continually deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and with other students; and that they experience the abundant life Jesus died to bring them.
