The Power of Prayer Right Now: Urgent Prayer Team Now Available
When my son was in a terrible car accident in 2011, his life was in the balance, and with one phone call, the St. Philip’s prayer chain was alerted and I was able to get many people praying fast. I believe that through these prayers and many more throughout his recovery, he was saved and is now healed.
St. Philip’s has had a prayer chain for about the last twenty years, and many of us have taken great comfort in knowing that our situation is getting prayed over “right now.” But now we have a new and improved prayer chain.
This team is composed of a group of individuals who are committed to prayer, who believe in the power of prayer and are willing to interrupt what they are doing in order to hear and pray for the needs of others. We are calling this group of prayer warriors the Urgent Prayer Team, because it is no longer a “chain” of phone calls; the requests will now be delivered all at once by text messages.
There are many ways to get prayed for at St. Philip’s, such as making an appointment to meet with a member of the prayer team or adding your name to the parish prayer list. The Urgent Prayer Team is available for prayer needs that are immediate, such as sudden illness or surgery, or difficult personal situations.
Requests for the Urgent Prayer Team are for anyone who attends St. Philip’s, members of their families, and for people closely connected to us. If you are requesting prayer for someone other than yourself, it is essential you have his or her permission (if he or she is able to give it) before contacting the Urgent Prayer Team.
To start a prayer request, individuals will either call the church office at (843) 722-7734 or call or text me, team leader Suzanne McCord, at (843) 224-1630. Prayer requests will be sent as they have been received unless the information is of a nature too sensitive to distribute. Please keep the messages brief so they can be received easily. The requests for prayer are personal, and this team will keep private all information received.
