Prayer Ministry Annual Report January 2016

Prepared by Mary Kincaid

St. Luke may be a small congregation, but we are large in offering prayers for others. Every week our list consists of approximately ten new names, plus our pregnancy, military, St. Nartarios, peace and comfort, our St. Luke family and our monthly children's list. I can't give an exact number of how many prayers have been said for others, but after doing this for 19 years, I know it's tremendous. The prayer journey starts when I receive a request. I compile all requests and send them out by email on Friday evenings to over 50 people. Everyone then prays on their own and in their own way. I also put about ten copies in the narthex. After vesper service on Saturday evening, we light a seven day candle and offer up all the names during our intercessory prayer service. The candle is then put outside in front of the large cross. What a beautiful site that light is when driving by at night. Just seeing its glow is like a surge of hope, knowing so many people are praying. And we are not done with the request yet. On Sunday the list of names is handed to our priest and he mentions all the names during the liturgy. There are also beautiful cards available to send to those who we mention in our prayers. I feel we are all very privileged to be part of this group because, "Prayer unites one with God".
