Prayer Chain
/ Ministries / Study Group / Prayer Chain

Since 1994, the parish Prayer Chain has been providing support to those who request prayerful assistance for themselves or for others. The subject of prayer requests can be for a variety of different situations:

  • Health
  • Job
  • Personal relationships
  • Natural disasters
  • National & international events
  • Are not limited to benefit Orthodox Christians

Each request is summarized and sent via email to Prayer Chain members who are asked to pray for each situation. Anyone can be a member of the Prayer Chain, including non-parishioners. Additionally:

  • Communal prayer is powerful
  • God clearly knows what is needed and it is important to remember that His will be done

To submit prayer requests, contact either, or

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
