St. Francis Anglican Parish Prayer List

Please Pray for the concerns weighing on the hearts and minds of members of this congregation.

If you need to add or remove a name from the prayer list contact Sue Comstock at 919-498-9154 or email her at suectrace@gmail.com. See current prayer list on last page of weekly parish bulletin. Names will be removed after three weeks unless you contact Sue to extend the time.

 

EXPANDED PRAYER OPPORTUNITIES ON SUNDAY MORNINGS!

After each Sunday Eucharistic service, prayer will now be available in two forms:

1) Trained members of the prayer team will be on hand to pray for you personally and confidentially for any need.  Simply walk over to any prayer team member (identified by a red badge), and you will be joined by one or more other prayer team members, move to a quiet corner, and be prayed for.

 

2) Blue prayer request cards have been placed in all pew pockets if you would prefer to submit a request in writing.  Just fill out a card and drop it in either of the two red boxes (one at the back of the church and one on the table beside the door to the fellowship hall).  Prayer team members will pray for written requests during the subsequent week.

 

Please be assured that all prayer requests are held in strictest confidence.  Never consider a prayer need too small, too trivial…or too big! Prayer team members always begin by listening for God’s direction, and only then do they verbalize the prayers that they sense on God’s heart for you.  Please take advantage of these new opportunities to receive God’s comfort and peace!
