There are two volunteer opportunities for church groups or for individuals.

Participate in The Upper Room’s The Living Prayer Center by becoming a Phone Volunteer or a Prayer Partner. The prayer center offers a way for small groups, church leaders and individuals to be a part of prayer fellowship beyond their local communities. 

Phone Volunteers receive the phone calls that come to our toll-free number. They listen to prayer requests and then pray with the callers. The volunteer shares the prayer request with the Prayer Center, which then forwards the prayer concern to covenant prayer groups across the globe to be held in prayer for an extended time.

Prayer Partners are individuals or small groups of people (Covenant Prayer Groups) who receive the prayer requests from people all over the world and spend time lifting those concerns in prayer. Prayer requests are forwarded from the prayer center once a week for extended prayer.

To become a volunteer, all you need is a vital Christian experience, a willingness to open your heart to those in need, and a desire to grow in your own prayer life.

Submit an application for the role to which you are called. Our prayer center staff will respond to your application and supply you with training for your role.

Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
