Below is a description of the three main ways in which Ascension prays for its members, families, friends, and community and the procedures to follow for each:
After Service Prayer: Following each service a pastor/vicar/deacon/prayer minister will be available near the front of the service for any prayer needs.
Prayer Book & Pastor’s Prayers: A prayer book is located on a podium inside the Narthex of our Family Life Center. We ask that you be complete in filling out the form located in the book and understand that the information requested is helpful to our pastor and staff. The Pastor will read these prayers during worship for that weekend. In addition, if you would like these prayers printed in the worship bulletin the following week, please be sure to indicate this in the space provided on the form.
Prayers in the weekly worship service bulletin and the weekly newsletter: Each week we include a list of people in our worship bulletin who are in need of prayers. This is a public form of prayer request usually for those recently hospitalized, those with upcoming surgeries, those that are at home sick, and also for those family members and friends who are sick and out of town. We also list prayers of Thanksgiving, Blessings, and Compassion on a weekly basis.
Please contact the church office at 520-297-3095 or EMAIL us if you would like the name of someone included in the weekly newsletter, Connections.
Any prayer requests for the worship bulletin should be made no later than Tuesday Noon of each week. Any requests received after this time will unfortunately not be included until the following week. However, we will try to include these additional prayers in the Pastor’s verbal prayers during worship.
