How it works
• When we receive a prayer request we will email the request to the Prayer Chain and activate the phone Prayer Chain.
• One of the Prayer Chain co-ordinators call the first person in the phone chain and share the request. They then ring the next person with the request and so on until the last person receives the request. The last person rings the coordinator to confirm completion of the chain.
“Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work.” – Oswald Chambers
• Please pray immediately.
• Continue to pray and intercede for the prayer requests until you feel a release or until an answer is posted.
• All requests are completely confidential, please do not discuss them with others or forward messages outside the Prayer Chain.
• Please do not forward things to the Prayer Chain list that are not prayer requests.
Please keep the following in mind when making a request:
• Please be brief and to the point.
• Please choose your wording carefully so that the need is clearly stated, but those reading are not overwhelmed by the detail. It is not necessary to go into detail about relations, specific medical terminology and so on; the Lord knows all the details. The goal is to give enough information so we can pray intelligently.
• In order to respect people’s privacy, please be certain that you have their permission before posting the request. First names or initials can be used for sensitive issues.
• If you have shared a request, when appropriate, please send updates so we can keep praying specifically for the need.
• Please send praise reports of answers to prayer so we can all rejoice!
