Sometimes distress opens a door. Here’s one! We will temporarily transform St. Paul’s Tuesday morning Prayer Lift into an opportunity to pray together over the phone… over the Prayerwaves (prayer airwaves, get it?).
Connecting is easy. At 9:45 a.m. on Tuesdays, phone into this number: 425-436-6326. A voice will then ask for the “access code.” Then dial in this number: 774042. Then press #.
Bill Butz will already be on the line to welcome you. As the little beep announces each new person joining, we’ll say “hi” to each other.
We can start each Tuesday morning at 9:45 a.m. with the prayer requests sent to the church (scroll up to submit a request!) or those given to our pastors, then we'll move to our own requests shared with each other. Pastor Pat and Pastor Kate will be on the line when schedules allow.
Perhaps we’ll want to concentrate particular sessions on special needs, such as essential workers, members of our Friendship Club or Romeos, those in nursing facilities, schoolchildren who are missing friends, families struggling with lost income, those who live alone and are especially isolated, single parents, the homeless… and of course the special needs of ourselves and our families.
After a short scripture revealing the power of prayer, we will be in prayer, each speaking up as the Holy Spirit moves among us. At least at first, no more organization than this. At the end, after perhaps a half hour, we’ll discuss how to proceed for the next week. Maybe the same, maybe loosely with a theme, and hopefully with others leading the sessions as we go.
Let’s make Prayerwaves!
