In these difficult times it is so important that we stay rooted in prayer. The Prayer Diary hopefully helps us to focus on some common needs for prayer. But there are also specific needs which people have; be that illness, loss, concerns about family and friends or loneliness and feeling the loss of human contact.
We would like to remind people about the Prayer Hub, which is a group from the congregations of both St Stephen’s and St Leodegar’s, who will respond to requests for prayer. The Prayer Hub has seen some amazing answers to prayer during the past year.
Rev May is taking over the management of the Prayer Hub with immediate effect. We are moving all Prayer Hub notifications over to email and we’ll not be sending text messages with prayer requests in future. The email address to submit a prayer request is still firstname.lastname@example.org but the telephone number is now 07922516761.
If you would like the Prayer Hub to pray about your needs, then please contact May on email@example.com and she will forward the request to the members of the Prayer Hub. Please be aware that Linda has no editing role, but simply passes on the request as she receives it.
The amount of information which you include is your choice. Some people prefer to give very little detail, and that is fine – the Prayer Hub members can raise that person to God in prayer – He knows what their needs are. Other people like to give a lot of detail; this may be because talking (or communicating) about issues helps them to process things or it may be because their request is for the Hub to prayer in a specific way, which means that they require more information. There is no right or wrong; it is the person’s choice and the members of the Prayer Hub respect all requests for prayer. The information is confidential within the members of the Prayer Hub.
So, if you are struggling in any way: – and no concern is too big or too small – please contact the Prayer Hub via May so that you can experience the comfort and peace which prayer brings.
