Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

Prayer Chain

Pray for one another, so that you may be healed.
James 5:16

St. Patrick's Prayer Chain consists of a group of people who pray individually from their homes. This spiritual ministry supports those asking for specific prayers for themselves, their family or their friends. There are no meetings. This is a ministry that can be done in your home, at work, in your car, wherever and whenever you pray.

Anyone who feels the need for support through prayer can contact a prayer team leader and request the Prayer Chain be initiated.

Telephone Prayer Chain
The first and the oldest method of the prayer chain is the telephone for those who do not have access to an email application. This method is truly a chain in that the prayer requests are passed along from one person to another in a chain like fashion.

E-Prayer Chain
The second method of communication is the use of an email application. This method is more like a prayer wheel rather than prayer chain in that one email is sent out once to multiple addresses at one time.

If you know of someone in need of prayer and you would like to request prayer, wish to join the Prayer Chain or have questions, please contact:

    Lynn Michels at 815-729-4220
    Jean Roach at 815-729-4371
    Sue Ruettiger - 815-729-4497

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Philippians 4:6
