This is the portal for the Good Shepherd Prayer Ministry. It provides a place for parishioners to ask for prayers for themselves, their loved one, for strangers or for the world. It is also the portal for joining other parishioners in committing to intercessory prayer for the intentions given to our prayer ministry.
Requests for Intercessory Prayer
Peter tells us “cast all your worries upon him because he cares for you.”(1 Peter 5:7). The way we typically do this is through prayer. And the way we often experience God’s care is through the love, support and prayers of God’s people, the Church. Many people need our support including the sick, their caregivers, those in harm’s way, the deceased and grieving, the lonely, the disabled, the divorced, the poor, those who have lost their jobs, their home, their families, victims of abuse, those with additions, victims of injustice of any kind. Also consider asking for prayers for good outcomes for events, continuing support for specific people, and for disasters and crisis.
Please utilize the form below to request prayers. The amount of information you give is your choice; God’s know for whom and what we will pray. Prayers will be distributed as least weekly to our prayer ministers, more often if urgent, and may be added to the intercessions at mass. Requests will stay on the line for a month unless updated. We ask that you update your information, if possible.
Join our Prayer Ministry
St. Paul tells us, “Bear one another’s burdens, and so you will fulfill the law of Christ.” What is the law of Christ? To love God with all our heart, sould and mind, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Many people praying for the same person or purpose is a powerful tool. We don’t need to be gathered together physically or even in time, but by our desire to pray for a special intention.
What are the requirements for being a Prayer Minister?
- The desire to join others in prayer for the special intentions of the poepl requesting prayer
