REQUESTING PRAYERS

To submit a prayer request, send an email to prayers@saintmarks.org or call 206.323.0300 x314.


PRAYER CHAIN

"Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." —Philippians 4:6

The Prayer Chain receives the names of members, family and friends who have requested prayer. Seventy-plus members pray, each in their own way, for parishioners, family and friends who have requested prayers of various concerns. These may come because of a death, birth, illness, job loss, military service or struggles with children or parents.

Requests may be made so that only the prayer chain members offer prayers. Others may wish their requests included in the Prayers of the People in the Sunday and weekday liturgies. The Prayer Chain is known in the Saint Mark's community as being present and here for any and all who desire, need, count on prayer support. To be added to the Prayer Chain list, contact Erik Donner: edonner@saintmarks.org or 206.323.0300 x217.
