Praying for Hayden

Hi! Please join us in praying for the Town of Hayden today.


Mayor: Larry Armstrong

Centrally located between Huntsville and Birmingham

In Blount County

Originally called Rockland

  • Changed to Hayden when it was officially founded in 1914
  • Named for one of the first settlers in the area, Major Hayden, who was a former Army officer. He settled in the area sometime before the Civil War.

Population at the 2010 census was 444.

II Peter 1:2-4 – “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the grace and peace You multiply unto us. Thank You for using Your power in us and through us and for us so that we can become partakers of the divine nature. What a precious and magnificent promise, indeed! Hallelujah!!

We pray for Hayden, Alabama today, asking that You would allow this town to know You and Your divine power. We don’t have to ask for everything pertaining to life and godliness for them, because Your Word promises it to us, but we do ask that You would allow the people of this town to know how to appropriate those things in their lives. Would You dispel darkness and disbelief, and bring them into Your marvelous light? Let Hayden be known as a town that has escaped the corruption of this world because they have become partakers of Your divine nature.

We lift up Mayor Larry Armstrong to You, and those who serve on the city council for Hayden. May they have true knowledge of You who have called them and appointed them to their current positions of leadership. May that true knowledge of You cause them to seek Your face for wisdom and counsel. Bless Mayor Armstrong with everything he needs for life and godliness.

Father, we speak a blessing over the Church in Hayden. May it rise up to be who You have called it to be in their town and surrounding communities. Use it to be multipliers of Your grace and peace by raising up disciples and by being change-agents for Your kingdom. Cause them to throw off every encumbrance that has beset them, so that they can run the race with endurance. Let Your will be done in and through Your Church, O God, as it already is in Heaven. And may the town of Hayden be blessed through Your Body. Amen.
