St. Patrick Parish has a prayer chain of parishioners who pray for the intentions of anyone in need or who would like to request prayers. Prayers for others should be requested with the other person’s consent and can be made without using a name if preferred. All prayer requests are confidential. Both prayer requests and pray-ers (those who pray) are welcome.
All requests for prayer are to be held in confidence. There is no specific prayer expected of members--you can pray while washing the dishes, while cooking a meal, playing the piano, driving your car, while housecleaning, while working in the yard, as part of one’s night prayer or morning prayer, at Mass, etc. One person told me she prays the rosary every evening for the prayer request received that day; another prays for each request as it is received. Some pray every day for all the requests received over time. There is no specific time of day or length of time for your prayer; the time, place, length, method, etc., is up to the individual.
Anyone can submit a prayer request through the office, through Mary Lou, or through any person on the prayer chain. The request is then sent out to everyone on the Prayer Chain.
A member can request to be taken off the Prayer Chain at any time.
