We have launched a Parish Prayer Chain to enable many in our parish to pray for others on a regular and systematic basis.
We hope that many of our people will want to be part of this and commit themselves to pray every day for those on the list.
Please give your name and either an e-mail address (or postal address) to Isabel Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she will send a list of people and concerns to you.
If you know of someone in need of prayer, then (even if you are not part of the Prayer Chain), please send their names and some indication of their need and Isabel will add them to the list.
If a matter is urgent, then Isabel can send out the details quickly to all those in the Prayer Chain. Only Isabel will know who has requested prayer, so it is confidential. She will also need to be told if the circumstances of someone being prayed for change.
As members of the Body of Christ, we are called upon to pray for one another.
I hope many will feel that the Parish Prayer Chain is a useful means to fulfil this calling.
