What is a prayer link?

A prayer link is a specific type of prayer ministry, which consists of a group of people who volunteer to take time to pray when the link is activated.

What is the purpose?

The idea is to give members of the congregation access to immediate prayer support when the need arises. It can be a great comfort to know that people are praying for you when a crisis suddenly looms. There may also be times when people need ongoing prayer support, perhaps during times of illness or bereavement. We cannot all engage in active ministry, but we can all support one another through prayer and act as channels of God's grace.

Why should we have a prayer link?

Scripture asks us to "pray for one another" (James 5:16) and to "bear one another's burdens" (Galatians 6:2). Jesus promises that if we pray in faith, our requests will be answered - "I tell you, ask and you will receive." (Luke 11:9)

How does it work?

People, who have opted to be members of the prayer link group, are informed when there is a request for prayer. Members undertake to pray regularly and confidentially for the concerns brought before them. Members choose whether they prefer to be contacted by email, text or land line. If you are interested in becoming involved in this prayer ministry, please initially contact Revd Alan Keeler (email or 020 8460 1827) with your contact details.

Requests for prayer

Requests for prayer should also be forwarded to Alan and should include as much or as little information about the situation as you wish to give. You may prefer to just give the name of someone in need of prayer support or you may feel it is helpful to give more details in order to aid people in focusing their prayers.
