“Prayer is love raised to its greatest power, and the prayer of intercession is the noblest and most Christian kind of prayer because in it love and imagination reach their highest and widest range.”
Robert J. McCracken
At every stage in our lives, we need to hear the Good News of how much we are loved by God and even more so during those times of pain, sickness, loss and at many other stages of this journey of life. We need to feel the love of God and know that others care enough to pray for us.
The Church of Saint Andrew has had a dedicated group of Prayer warriors for a number of years, whose role it is to pray for those who seek intercessory prayer either for themselves or someone else. We take this ministry very seriously and all those whose names are shared within the group are kept confidential. We will not discuss the names with anyone outside the Circle. When we need to update our list to determine any change in status of those we are praying for we will contact the individual who placed the prayer request before us.
Usually a name is kept on the list for one month and we ask that those who have placed a name on the list provide us with periodic updates. Should the need be for a longer period of prayer time, we will do our best to meet the needs of everyone.
We have much to Praise and Thank God for in the healing which has happened in so many lives. What a privilege it is to pray to our God on your behalf.
The members of the Prayer Circle would be happy to pray for you. However, if you are submitting someone else's name to be prayed for, you must have the permission of that individual to have their name added to the prayer list. Please contact the Parish Office at 462-1818 and ask for the contact information for the Coordinator of the Prayer Circle or check your Wednesday/Sunday Bulletin for contact information.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
