Dear Parents, Teachers, and friends of Roanoke Catholic,
The purpose of the RCS Mustard Seed Prayer Chain is to strengthen the Roanoke Catholic School community through intercessory prayer and to provide prayerful support for those in need.
This year the Roanoke Catholic Mustard Seeds Prayer Chain has been connected to the school web-site through SchoolRack and will be up-dated weekly. The reason behind using the SchoolRack web-site is to give you the opportunity to pick the Categories you would like to reflect upon. In the past, some have said the Prayer Chain email is very lengthy, so this will allow for the Prayer Chain to be put in the following categories on the web-page and you can utilize whatever section you are called to each week. You will receive an email each week with the link to the Roanoke Catholic Mustard Seeds Prayer Chain as it is up-dated for an easy on-line connection.
All RCS Faculty/Staff/Parents and Students are welcomed to submit prayers for our Prayer Chain. When you send a prayer request your name is included after the body of the request when it is sent out to the prayer list members. This is so prayer chain members can send you notes of support, if appropriate. If, for privacy, you wish that your name not be used on a prayer request you send, please note that (in parenthesis) below your name. If you wish your prayer to be anonymous, you can put it in the box of intentions in the front hall at school and the prayers in that box will be on our list each week (we know God knows what prayers are in there).
Any prayers you’d like prayed for are welcomed. Please try to keep your prayer request short and concise. We will keep the prayer on the list until you ask for it to be removed. The RCS Mustard Seed Prayer Chain will be sent out once a week, unless an emergency arises and we need to put something out that calls for immediate attention.
You may send a Prayer Request to email@example.com
. Please write the request the way you wish it to be read. A prayer request may sometimes be edited by the prayer chain custodian if the prayer is too “wordy”. You do not have to be a member of the Prayer Chain List to send a prayer request, it is open to any Roanoke Catholic School friend
Please always check in on our ROANOKE CATHOLIC PRAYER INTENTIONS on the web-page to lift up friends and family in our community asking for prayer.
As always, we are open to any suggestions you may have from Prayer Chains you are/or have been involved with or any new elements you think could enrich our Prayer Chain. I hope you find this new way of presenting the Prayer Chain easier to manage and read. Please feel free to send any feedback firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ask God’s Blessing over our Roanoke Catholic Mustard Seed Prayer Chain and pray that He will guide us as we embark in a new way to bring our wonderful school community together for Him.
