Prayer Chain

The prayer chain is a way for people to gain assistance in prayer for serious problems. Most prayer chains are for a continuous 24-hour period. Your commitment (from the comfort of your own home) would be one hour of dedicated time spent in prayerful meditation in any form from saying the rosary to reading the bible to formal prayers, to singing – whatever way that you can honor God.

The prayer chain at Our Lady of Mount Carmel is currently looking for more parishioners and anyone else that can commit to one hour of prayer for requests that we receive. These intentions will be forwarded on to the names on the email prayer-chain list. It should be noted that praying when the rest of the world is asleep is very efficacious, i.e., the hours from midnight to 6:00 a.m. Prayer is a way for each of us to reach out of ourselves for the sake of another – to act on God’s command to love one another. Please think about joining. Contact Fr. Joseph Devereaux for more information.
