Prayer Ministry Annual Report January 2015

Prepared by Mary Kincaid

The journey of a prayer request is long and meaningful. It begins by giving me the request. Then a list is made up and distributed to over fifty persons by email on Friday evenings. Copies are also put on the wall in the narthex. Everyone upon receiving the list prays on their own in their own way for two weeks. After vespers on Saturday night, every person requesting prayers is mentioned with our "Intercessory Prayer" service. We light a seven day candle as we offer our prayers and then put the candle outside in front of our cross. Fr. Andrew also mentions all the names during Divine Liturgy on Sunday. Once a month, I send a repeat list of seriously ill children, who need more than two weeks of prayers and for those in hospice care. There are beautiful cards available, for a donation, for all occasions in the narthex, which can be sent to let someone know prayers are being said for them. Prayer, the gift you can give someone, as often as you want, whether they are near or far, believe or don’t believe, is the gift that we should keep giving.
