Intercession/Prayer Ministry is a new ministry in our Hinterland and Coastal Parish and is formed by individuals or a groups of parishioners who are committed to praying for your needs, the needs of our parish, community and the world.
The bible tells us not only to pray for ourselves but also for each other. God tells us to pray for one another as the saints have prayed and are praying for us. As John writes in his first letter: “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him” 1 John 5:14-15.
There are two ways you can participate in this new ministry: by submitting your personal prayer requests via our new website, and/or by signing up to pray for the intentions again via the website. You will receive a weekly email with people’s prayer intentions. Both options can be found here and below.
Very soon, you will also be able to submit your prayer requests into prayer petition boxes which will be available in every parish community by the end of March.
The vision for this Intercessor Ministry is that prayer may be the backbone of any and all missionary activity in our parish as we forge ahead in our commission to become missionary disciples (Mt 28:19). If you feel you are called to the intercession ministry, please register here. https://caloundracatholicparish.net/prayer-request/
