Prayer Requests


Phoenix

One of our members takes on the responsibility of informing all members with email of any requests for prayer made to her by members.  This service is called Prayer Corner.  At Layette workdays we also share prayer requests.  We also have a column in our newsletter called Prayer Corner where we list the requests that have been submitted since our last edition.

Summit
Prayer requests and our prayer list included in our monthly nesletter and our prayer list is brought to our First Tuesday Mass.  Prayer requests are emailed to one of our members on the Spirituality Committee.  Names to be prayed for are on our prayer list for a month.

Texas Capital Area
Prayer requests are currently sent out via email to membership by our President.  We are looking to add a prayer request section to our web site and have this automatically email the membership when new requests are made.

Toledo
We have a prayer team that meets at 9:30a.m. on the first Monday morning of each month in the home of the chairperson of our Spirituality Team.  During these gatherings we have meditated with Centering Prayer and with Lectio Divina.  It is during these prayer meetings that we pray for those petitions that have been placed in our Prayer Basket.  The Prayer Basket is at all of our functions and gives an opportunity for members to request personal prayers that remain anonymous.  Weather permitting this prayer group has walked an outside labyrinth.

Prayer Link is another means for prayer requests.  Prayer petitions are e-mailed or telephoned to the Prayer Link chairperson who is a member of our Spirituality Team.  These requests are then e-mailed out to Prayer Link team members who then offer prayers privately.  All requests need to have the permission of the family or the person for whom the prayer is requested.

Geauga County
We have a prayer line for members, their family or friends who need our prayers.  These are done by email and phone chains.



Prayer Lists

 “Prayer for others…. is the very beat of a compassionate heart. To pray for a friend that is ill, for a student who is depressed, for a teacher who is in conflict; for people in prison, in hospitals, on battlefields – is not a futile effort to influence God’s will, but a hospitable gesture by which we invite our neighbors into the center of our hearts. To pray for others means to allow their pains and sufferings, their anxieties and loneliness, their confusion and fears to resound in our innermost selves….It is in and through us that God’s Spirit touches them with his healing presence.” — Henri J.M.
