Let my prayer be set forth in your sight as incense,
the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. (Psalm 141:2)
Prayer is at the center of our communal life together at St. Bart’s. Intercessory prayer “brings before God the needs of others” (The Book of Common Prayer, p. 857), although we may pray for our own needs, as well.
Prayers will be offered during the Prayers of the People on Sunday. Since the prayer list grows over time, names will be read aloud at the 11 am service for two weeks. If you would like your prayer request to continue beyond two weeks, please indicate that below and the first name will be printed in the Sunday service leaflet. Names printed in the service leaflet will be included in our corporate prayer for an additional month, but will not be read aloud.
If you have an urgent pastoral need, please call our Pastoral Care Line at 212-378-0250 where you can leave a message for a priest.
