Dear St Raphael’s folk,
In our services, we normally mention by name people who have asked for our prayers – and it would be good to be able to continue to do this.
If you would like prayer for yourself, then please e-mail both Karen and me – that would seem the easiest. You don’t have to go into detail, but it does help to know a little about why you would like prayer at this time. If you would like prayer for someone else, then before you e-mail please ensure the person involved has given their permission. At times, it is also difficult to discern when we should stop mentioning someone by name in our prayers – so please do say as and when the need changes. Feel free to e-mail at any time, although the intention is to finalise and circulate any orders of service to the St Raphael’s congregation at least a day in advance.
Please note that this arrangement is for prayers which would normally be spoken aloud as part of our Sunday worship. Both Karen and I are both contactable for a confidential chat if required – and as both involve prayer it is important to distinguish between the two arrangements.
