Prayer Ministry Annual Report January 2014

Prepared by Mary Kincaid

St. Luke's prayer group has been praying together for those in need for 17 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. Hopefully this light will inspire more prayers as people drive by. Fr. Andrew also mentions all of the names during Divine Liturgy. Everyone involved prays on their own for at least two weeks.

Prayer cards are also available in the narthex for a donation. These cards are to let someone know prayers are being said for them; there are a variety 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. With over fifty people in our prayer group, praying every week, for over 17 years, we have said a lot of prayers. And we aren't done! As St. Mark the Ascetic said, "Prayer is called virtue, but in reality it is the mother of the virtues; for it gives birth to them through union with Christ."
