At the heart of all we do at Overlake is conversational intimacy with God . . . prayer.
OCC is here to pray for you and the needs of others.
Here are some of the primary ways we do that:
Join us following the morning services in the Prayer Alcove. It's located just outside the Worship Center on the 2nd floor, in the south lobby. Signs will direct you. If all the prayer team members are praying with others when you arrive...no worries! Just take a seat and one of them will be with you just as soon as possible.
If you'd like to apply to be part of our Sunday Prayer Team, and/or pray over the many requests for prayer we receive at the church each week, please complete THIS application. THANKS!
Prayer is at the heart of Sozo - an inner healing ministry to help you discover what is hindering your personal connection with Father God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit--also known as the Godhead. A healed connection leads to greater spiritual freedom...and THAT impacts all aspects of your life. Sozo is the Greek word meaning “to save, deliver, heal, preserve, make well, make whole.”
You can email a prayer request anytime or leave a message on the OCC Prayer Line at 425.895.5900. You can also write requests on the Connection Card that's in the Sunday handout, and/or drop by the Prayer Alcove in OCC's 2nd floor lobby following Sunday morning services.

While there are no magic words with regards to prayer, Jesus did give us some guidelines in what is referred to as "The Lord's Prayer" (Matthew 6:9-13 / Luke 11:2-4). Another helpful resource is the list of prayers available to download from the Ransomed Heart Ministries Web site (we offer hard-copy versions of some of these prayers in our Sunday Prayer Room as well as in some of our OCC support groups). The RH prayers are scripture-based and take some time to get through...but praying through one (or more) consistently can be life-changing.
Find care and support for whatever you're going through within OCC's Caring Ministries. That link will take you to the Caring Ministries page where you can find information on free biblical counseling, support groups, and more.
The best way to get the care you need, is to have people in your life who are on a similar, spiritual journey. That's what OCC groups are all about (Connect Groups, Care Groups, Grow Groups, Serve Groups and Parish Groups). Check out groups on OCC.ORG then give one a try!
