Prayer Ministry Annual Report January 2013
Prepared by Mary Kincaid
St. Luke's prayer group has been praying together for those in need for fifteen years. Prayer requests are given to me and I send out the list of names on Friday evenings by email and also put copies on the wall in the narthex. On Saturday after our vesper service, we pray for every name on the list with our "Intercessory Prayers" as we light a candle. The seven day candle is placed in front of our cross outside. Fr. Andrew mentions all of the names during Divine Liturgy. Everyone involved prays on their own for at least two weeks. Of course, without me having to list them, there are those who need prayers for longer than two weeks. Throughout the year I also send names to St. Tikhons for prayers.
Cards are available in the narthex which can be sent to let someone know prayers are being said for them for all occasions. Last year, Father Andrew sent out thank you cards to those who made a donation to the church with their prayer request.
