Prayer is a fundamental part of the believer's life. At Beeson, praying is central to us as individuals and as a community. The staff and faculty pray for every incoming student, professors pray for their students, and most classes begin with prayer. As Scripture tells us, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Phil 4:6).

This Week in Prayer

This Week in Prayer is an organized way to pray for each member of our Beeson community. Each week, a new prayer sheet is made available in the Happenings, our Beeson email newsletter. Simply click on the link in the Announcement and News Section.

The Prayer Room

At Beeson, it is our desire to honor God and serve others by facilitating a place of prayer. The Prayer Room is located on the lower level of the Global Center within Beeson Divinity Hall. Here individuals can reserve a time to commune with God and intercede for others. You may also use the sign-up sheet on the Prayer Room door to sign up for weekly prayer times.

The Prayer Team

The Beeson Prayer Team was born out of the ministry of the Prayer Room. Combining technology with prayer, the Prayer Team prays for the community within and beyond the halls of the divinity school. As intercessors, our desire is to honor God and serve others by praying for the needs of our community.

Each semester the Pray Team prays specifically for every member of the Beeson community. Each week, the Student Prayer Coordinator sends out emails to individual members of the Beeson community, asking for their personal requests and praises. These requests are then compiled together and emailed to the members of the Prayer Team who personally pray over each of these requests. All prayer requests are kept strictly confidential, and every member of the Prayer Team signs a covenant promising to maintain this confidentiality.

The Prayer Worship Service

At the beginning of each semester, the Student Prayer Coordinator organizes a Prayer Worship Service in Hodges Chapel. This service includes congregational singing, meditation on Scripture, and praying for our community, with a special emphasis on our incoming students.

Prayer Requests

Prayer requests for the Prayer Team can also be made at any time by sending an email to In addition, blue prayer request cards can be filled out and placed in the box in front of the Chapel Curator’s Office.
