Prayer Requests

Prayer Requests   |   Our Prayers   |   Bless Minnesota

Prayer is a powerful thing! Prayer requests are asked for at each service. 

Email YOUR PRAYER REQUEST to the telephone Prayer Chain.

Call Chris Wentzel at 763-428-3773 with your prayer request. "First names only are fine."


Prayer Shawls

Prayer is a powerful thing!! If you know of someone who is in need of prayers, consider giving them the gift of a prayer shawl. We have many beautiful shawls available in the church office – each one comes with a card and the best part is they are free to anyone! This is a great way to show your love, lift up someone in prayer, and to let someone feel God’s warm embrace around them. See Helen or Stacey for more information.

If you, or a family member, neighbor or friend has a special prayer need or request, please feel free to submit those prayer(s) to St. Paul’s Prayer Chain. Prayer Chain members will pray for your requests, and then call them on to the next Prayer Chain member on our call list. Please feel free to contact Dawn in the church office, or Chris Wentzel at 763-428-3773 if you have any questions or you would like to initiate a prayer request for the Prayer Chain.The mission of the St. Paul's Prayer Ministry is to enrich the prayer lives of those in its Christian Community through educational, experiential and service opportunities; and to provide prayer support for individuals, church staff, and ministries.

Lord, My unpredictable life of faith wavers all the way from weak to strong. I do battle with my doubts and behavior. I am grateful that You are unchangeable in Your love for me. Keep my life anchored firmly in Your word and in the power of Your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Psalm 32

The Message (MSG)

A David Psalm

32 Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be—
you get a fresh start,
your slate’s wiped clean.

2 Count yourself lucky—
God holds nothing against you
and you’re holding nothing back from him.

3 When I kept it all inside,
my bones turned to powder,
my words became daylong groans.

4 The pressure never let up;
all the juices of my life dried up.

5 Then I let it all out;
I said, “I’ll make a clean breast of my failures to God.”

Suddenly the pressure was gone—
my guilt dissolved,
my sin disappeared.

6 These things add up. Every one of us needs to pray;
when all hell breaks loose and the dam bursts
we’ll be on high ground, untouched.

7 God’s my island hideaway,
keeps danger far from the shore,
throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

8 Let me give you some good advice;
I’m looking you in the eye
and giving it to you straight:

9 “Don’t be ornery like a horse or mule
that needs bit and bridle
to stay on track.”

10 God-defiers are always in trouble;
God-affirmers find themselves loved
every time they turn around.

11 Celebrate God.
Sing together—everyone!
All you honest hearts, raise the roof!

Time and Talent

Shawl Makers-We are starting to run a little low on prayer shawls. We are getting lots of requests for them and also gave out shawls to the recent new member class. If you have the time to make one it would be greatly appreciated! You can be reimbursed for your yarn- we have received a few donations to help with the cost. If you would like to become a part of our prayer shawl makers, Stacey has the instructions for those of you who may already know how to knit or crochet, and if you'd like to learn we could put a class together.
