Prayer

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people.”

1 Timothy 2:1

The theology of prayer in the Christian Church is rich and varied, as can be seen from the above short exhortation of St. Paul to the young pastor Timothy. At St. Paul’s Church, we are continually praying to the Lord for our own needs, the needs of each other and the needs of the world. We teach our members to pray, incorporate prayers in our meetings and decisions and pray for healing and strength. We use the historic prayers/collects of the church, we sing prayers and pray at meals, celebrations, gatherings and worship.

If you would like us to lift you or someone else up in prayer, please contact the church office or submit the name or situation for prayer by filling out a yellow prayer card during worship.  These are located in the church pew and collected during the gathering of our offerings.  St. Paul’s prayer circle is continually praying for these needs.  Member concerns are kept before the congregation by our Sunday bulletin.
