We come from many different backgrounds, traditions, cultures, and belief systems, but we are all one family, united in the One Love of God.
What happens to one of us affects all of us.
Prayer is a powerful energy. As Christians, we do not equate prayer with magic. Prayer is an outward and an inward expression of faith. Prayer is a means of openning ourselves to God's Voice and opening our hearts to the presence of Christ in one another. We use prayer to focus our minds, to nourish our spirits, to surrender to God our doubts, fears, judgments, struggles, grief, confusion, contrition, and pain that they may be transformed into hope, joy, courage, forgiveness, comfort, and peace.
Prayer is simultaneously personal and communal. By remembering one another in prayer and contemplation, we grow closer as a community of faith, rooted in unconditional love.
Please join us in a prayer for all of the intentions listed here. If you have a joy or a struggle that you would like
to add to the list, use the Prayer Request form located to the right.
Requests are typicaly posted to this message board within 24 hours, once approved; thanks for your patience. Requests remain for a month.
In our faith tradition, Prayer is a means of self-awakening, communion with God, and a means to connect with all life around us, a means for strength, a means for faith. Prayer is not magic and we are challenged not to equate prayer with making wishes to a genie in a lamp. We appreciate that many would pray for a winning lottery ticket, or a favorable outcome for a sports team, but these requests will be redacted with the following language: "For a special intention"
Requests containing foul language, insults, requests to bring pain to others, and all other defamatoary, violent, or inappropriate content will not be allowed and may be forwarded onto proper authorities for follow up.
Requests that contain detailed, sensitive information about someone other than the person submitting the request will be redacted into a more generalized request.
We ask that last names not be used, except in the case of a loved one's death
We know this board is available worldwide. We do allow requests in your native language, but these requests are subject to the same guidelines and will be reviewed for content.
