Join the Lutheran Church of the Master Prayer Chain
The LCM “Prayer Chain” is for anyone and everyone willing to pray for another and for anyone in need of prayers. Karen Mason is administrator of the LCM “Prayer Chain.”
How to Participate:
1) Request a prayer by sending your request via email to Karen Mason at email@example.com. In addition, Karen will also receive requests from the pew prayer slips, personal requests or phone calls to her or the church office, the deacon or the pastor.
2) Are you willing to pray for another? If you are willing to prayer for others, send your intention via email to Karen Mason at firstname.lastname@example.org. Karen will add your name and email address to the list of people willing to pray for those making a request. Karen will maintain the list of people on the “Prayer Chain.”
3) How the prayer chain works. When Karen receives a request for prayers, she will forward that request to everyone on the “Prayer Chain” email list. Those on the “Prayer Chain” will include the prayer request in their daily prayers.
4) Those requesting prayers will be named Sunday morning by Karen Mason just prior to the “Prayers of Intercession.”
Prayer Chain Etiquette:
The requests for prayer are personal, so do respect and keep private information received.
Please do not send a prayer request unless it is for yourself or the one identified has given permission. Please do not request prayers for someone because you feel they are in need of prayer; the individual’s permission is essential.
Please keep the prayer situation confidential and unless the individual is a personal friend, do not discuss the situation with the person for whom you are praying.
Prayer requests will be sent as they have been received unless Karen determines the information is of a nature too sensitive to distribute. Editing will be done at Karen’s discretion.
This is a prayer chain, not a care line. If people need help besides prayers, that information will be forwarded to the church office, the deacon or the pastor.
Prayers of thanksgiving are encouraged. Requests for prayers can include requesting prayers of thanksgiving when prayers have been answered.
Unless otherwise requested, the people on the prayer chain will be named in the “Prayers of Intercession” on Sunday.
The prayer requests will be made Sunday morning for two weeks unless a request for an extension has been made.
** Please Note: Instead of listing prayer requests in our church newsletter, all prayer requests will be directed to Karen Mason, the coordinator of our new email “Prayer Chain.”
