Prayer Ministry Annual Report January 2009

Prepared by Mary Kincaid

With the beginning of 2009 we the “St. Luke Prayer Group” are starting our twelfth year of praying together. There have been hundreds of requests from the joy of a new healthy baby’s birth to the unexpected death of a loved one.  The longer we live, the more we realize that life touches us with good things, sometimes exceeding our expectations and breaking into miracles.  Unfortunately sad situations also come along and kick us in the gut, testing our endurance to almost the breaking point.  But we go on, and we go on stronger if we have a prayer life.  Jesus said to pray unceasingly, not just once in a while. He wants to hear from us.  To me it’s a miracle in its self to be able to get on our knees and pray to God and know that He is listening.  I feel it’s a privilege to pray for others and I know a comfort to those being prayed for.  So we pray for at least two weeks in our own way for every request.  We also come together after vespers on Saturdays and say intercessory prayers.  Every name on our prayer list is offered up in prayer and a candle is set outside in front of the cross which burns for seven days.  We also have cards available at the front desk in the narthex for a donation.  These beautiful prayer cards can express sympathy for the newly departed or a personal need or celebration. Fr.Andrew then mentions their names in a prayer service on Tues and Thurs.  Everyone is welcome to join us. You can pick up your list in narthex or receive it by email.  Hopefully we will grow in numbers in 2009 and truly become a praying church.
