We want to pray for you. Seriously, we WANT to pray for you.
Prayers do not go on vacation, don't take holidays, sick days, or random National (whatever) Day's off. Our prayers do not stop for anything!
1. Morning Prayeris held every Monday at 10:00AM. All are invited in a time of spiritual reflection on Scripture and prayer. Prayer requests are collected in person, in the prayer box (located in the back of the Nave) and via Facebook Messenger (www.facebook.com/standrewspickerington).
Prayer Net, is our online prayer offering at St. Andrew’s. A collection of dedicated and faithful people have committed themselves to pray for the needs and concerns brought to them. Do you have a request? Email our rector at email@example.com or the church at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will forward it to our Prayer Net. The amount of details you wish to share is up to you. You can give as much or as little as you want. God knows your request. Don’t feel comfortable emailing a prayer request? Drop it in our Blessing Box outside the church.
Prayer Team, is our in-worship prayer offering. Each Sunday, during Holy Communion at the 10:00 AM service we have a Prayer Team stationed in our back chapel to pray for any concerns, thanksgivings or more. Again, you do not need to give them any details unless you want to. God knows your request. Prayer Net requests are prayed for at this time as well.
Additional Pray-ers. Each Wednesday at our 12:30 service of Holy Eucharist we pray for the needs of the parish and requests which come into our Prayer Net and any concerns our Prayer Team has given us – with the permission of the person requesting prayer.
Our Sunday Prayer Rotation. Each Sunday at our 8:00 and 10:00 AM services we pray through a “prayer rotation” of needs in the community, including the people of an Episcopal Church in the Diocese, the people of a different (or no) denomination in the community, the people of this parish, those serving in the military, and time is given at all services for people to lift up other concerns whether out loud on their lips or silently in their heart.
Birthday and Anniversary Prayers. On the first Sunday of each month (sometimes can be moved to the next week if falls on major holiday) we ask people in the congregation to come forward who have birthdays and/or anniversaries that month and we ask God’s blessings on their “new year”.
Men’s and Women’s Share Groups’ Prayers. We have several men’s and women’s groups who meet weekly to encourage one another in their walk with Christ. They offer up prayers for the parish as well.
Tuesday Prayers at our Adult Bible Study at 7:00PM. Both groups lift up prayer concerns given to them.
Men’s Saturday Breakfast Prayers. Usually on the last Saturday of the month (sometimes can be moved to the next week if falls on major holiday weekend) at 9:00 AM we offer for eggs, sausage and who knows what else. Each month, a different man of the parish offers a Bible passage for study and discussion and this group lifts up in prayer all requests given to them.
