As we lift the suffering or grieving in prayer, we become the conduit through which God's love flows to them, bringing comfort and peace. Intercessory prayer is not an attempt to tell God what to do, but to enable God's power to be released in those for whom we pray.
Questions? Ask The Rev. Dave Storm, 206-522-7144.
Do You Have a Prayer for the Prayer Chain?
Requests for prayer may be made for whatever need you or your loved one is facing:
When submitting a petition, please give both first and last names - unless anonymity is desired.
The person for whom prayers are asked should give his/her consent, if at all possible.
Unless an extension is requested, names stay on the prayer list for two weeks. The initiating person is expected to report developments to Dave Storm within two weeks or sooner, especially if an extension of time is desired.
Do You Want to Be a Member of the Prayer Chain?
Prayer Chain members agree to pray daily for each request. A monthly list is sent, which is added to by telephone messages during the month.
When the Rector, other staff, church office, or Coordinators receive a prayer request, it is immediately transmitted to the first name on both chains.
Each chain member then transmits the petition to the next person. And so on until the last listed person has been notified.
