The Prayer Chain: let us help carry your prayer

Prayer is a powerful help and comfort in both good and difficult times. Here at St Mary's we have a Prayer Chain to receive requests for prayers. People might ask us to pray for themselves, their friends, relatives or for a given situation. This could be for people with an immediate need of prayer in times of crisis or trouble. The members, or links in the chain, will, one by one, bring your prayer requests to the forefront of their prayers to God. Any calls for prayer are treated in the strictest of confidence. If you would like the Prayer Chain to offer up prayers on your behalf, please contact Joan Smith 0191 420 1238.
