Prayer Ministry – Watchmen on the Wall


Shepherd’s Arms Rescue Mission was founded by prayer and continues to be our greatest need. In the Gospel of John 15:5 the Lord Jesus tells us “without Me you can do nothing”. Jesus goes on to say in verse 7 of John 15 “If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, you may ask what you will and it will be done unto you.” Our desire at Shepherd’s Arms is to constantly abide in Jesus and to have His words abide in us. We aim to pray His prayers rather than our prayers and this is based on the model Jesus set for us in Isaiah 50: 4 which says, “The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he awakens morning by morning, he awakens my ear to hear as the learned.” When we tune our ears to the prayers Jesus is praying and agree with Him they are always answered. This is accomplished by reading HIs Word and listening for His voice through the Holy Spirit.

If you are interested in becoming a Watchman on the Wall and joining the pray-ers that lift up Shepherd’s Arms daily we invite you to contact the ministry. We need individuals and groups of pray-ers to come on site and pray for the ministry, conduct prayer walks and drives.

If you have a special prayer request please let us know by e-mailing us at or calling the ministry at 423 821-8363.
