Following each Sunday’s worship service, prayer chaplains are available for one-to-one prayer in the Sanctuary. The one desiring prayer (the “prayee”) and the chaplain sit together and pray – with words or silently.
The subject could be a problem, a death, a sickness, a fear or anxiety… a thanksgiving, a gratitude, a rampage of appreciation, a cascade of praise… or help with future hopes and goals, help in forgiving someone, peace of mind, and other topics.
The role of a prayer chaplain is to:
• Set intentions for the greater good of all involved.
• Hold sacred space, an awareness of the presence and love of God – right here, right now.
• Compassionately listen to the prayee’s concerns.
• Pray with the prayee.
• Hold everything in strict confidence.
Congregants report finding great solace in paired prayer. All worshipers who wish to are invited to participate.
