Prayer Ministries

“Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and He will say: ‘Here Am I’.” — Isaiah 58:9

Prayer Chain

The Prayer Chain is a group of people whose ministry is to pray for others in time of need, loss, illness, praise, and thanksgiving. Requests are distributed through email and by telephone. Members of the Prayer Chain then pray for those requests.

If you are in need of prayer, either for yourself or another, please call the church office at 630-832-5580 or email us. You may include a reason for your request, or simply state a name or situation. The prayer chain will honor your request for privacy.

Your prayers are welcome, too. If you are interested in joining this growing network of prayer partners, please contact the church office.

Prayers and Squares — Prayer Quilt Ministry

St. Paul congregation members are encouraged to remember this ministry as they or their loved one face a serious injury, operation, death in the family or similar life-changing situation. Requests can be made through St. Paul Wellness Ministry members, the Pastor, or the church office.

After the quilt becomes available to the congregation members for prayers, the person requesting the quilt is encouraged to deliver it to the individual or family who is to receive it.

Prayer Vigils

St. Paul hosts prayer vigils, with a goal of having continuous silent prayer in the sanctuary for a certain time period. You are invited to participate in these prayer vigils by signing up for a time slot to pray and/or filling out a prayer request card for the vigil. Check the calendar for the next vigil or contact the church office.
