Dear Intercessor in Christ,
We know that the goal of evangelization is to draw people to Jesus—whether those who have no faith or those for whom the flame of faith has been reduced. This could include our children who have left the church, our friends who are indifferent to God, or even unbelieving strangers we may meet at the local market. In all these situations, we think about how we might share our faith with them, serve them in the name of the Lord, or reach out to them in some other way with the good news of salvation.
One of the best ways to help bring people closer to Christ is through the prayer of intercession. Intercessory prayer helps us see people and their needs with “spiritual eyes.” What’s more, because it brings us before the throne of God, it also increases our own faith. So not only are the people we pray for blessed; so are we!
Please also pray for the following requests which we've received through the parish website over the past week by offering the sacrifice of your prayers from the comfort of your own home. Further, please feel free to submit your own prayer intentions through the prayer page on our parish website. You may also like to invite others to join this emerging and vital ministry.
