Prayer List Q&A
Q. How do I or someone I love get on the prayer list?
A. You may either fill out a card on Sunday morning, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the church office and let us know. Sometimes we just know of a need, but don't count on that. If you have a prayer need, are having surgery or are in the hospital, please let us know.
Q. How does someone get off the list?
A. You may let us know that you are ready to be taken off in the same manner that you can put in a request. Typically, we leave prayer requests on for one month and then remove them. Sometimes you will see names stay on for much longer. That is the case when we know the prayer need is ongoing, and particularly if the person has requested to remain on the list.
Do you have a question about the Prayer List? Do you have an idea about how we can be supportive to others? You can always reply to the prayer email. Replies go directly to Rev. Becky Rokitowski. Please indicate if the information is confidential or of a sensitive nature. We try to protect people's privacy, and will never share more information than we need to.
Legal (HIPAA) disclaimer: These prayer requests and praise reports may include personal and/or medical information that is subject to – and protected under – HIPAA laws. The medical details, however limited, should not be shared apart from those on our prayer chain, made up of those who share a desire and willingness to pray for and/or minister to these individuals. Prayer requests are received and shared on a ‘good-faith’ basis.
