Praying Shapes Believing
St. Matthew's is blessed to be a prayerful community. Not only do we offer up our concerns during the Prayers of the People during Sunday worship, we are fortunate to have an intentional group of prayer leaders who meet regularly on Tuesday mornings in our Library. The prayers also regularly offered at Morning Prayer.
In order to keep our prayer lives vibrant, engaging, active, and accurate, we will be creating a prayer request form. Beginning in November, prayer requests can be made simply by filling out a five-line information request card found in the display case at the back of the church and chapel. Fill out the prayer request and place it in the offering plate.
After four weeks, your prayer request will be removed. In order to retain the names of the sick on the list, a new prayer request will need to be submitted.
"O Lord our God, accept the fervent prayers of your people; in the multitude of your mercies, look with compassion upon us and all who turn to you for help; for you are gracious, O lover of souls, and to you we give glory, now and for ever. Amen." (The Book of Common Prayer, 395)
