Prayer network

Prayer Network

‘Prayer is part of the mission of the Church. It is allowing God to do his work in us.’ Father Peter Huckle.

Do you sometimes feel love and concern for someone but cannot think of any way to help them practically? Well, the prayer network may be the answer. We are committed to pray at least once a week for those for whom prayer has been asked. All the information we have is strictly confidential.

If there is anyone you would like us to pray for, we would love to hear from you – they do not need to be a member of St. Mary’s – or even a Christian come to that – God’s healing touch reaches everyone. Prayer requests can be passed on in person via the Vicar or to Linda Ainsworth  on 01200 424436 or by email: Anyone is welcome to join the weekly sessions, where there is a reflection on scripture and then prayers are offered for those for whom they have been asked, either silently or aloud. The session lasts half an hour.

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” Hebrews 4:16

” Among the different ways of helping in the present world crisis, there is none which will compare in vital importance with that of wielding the force of prayer. More important than the most earnest thinking upon a problem, more important than a personal interview to influence an individual, more important than addressing and swaying an audience-far more important than these and all other forms of activity is the act of coming into vital communion with God. Those who spend enough time in actual communion with God to become really conscious of their absolute dependence on Him, shall change the mere energy of the flesh for the power of God. . . . ” It is indeed true that he that saveth his time from prayer shall lose it. And he that loseth his time, for communion with God, shall find it again in added blessing and power and fruitfulness.”- John R. Mott
