2024 Lenten Prayer Partners

Lenten Prayer Partners returns this Lenten season and we hope you’ll take part. To be a Lenten Prayer Partner is to embrace the strength of prayer for others, specifically for a member of St. John’s. You will be anonymously “matched” with another St. John’s parishioner.

During the 40 days of Lent, we ask that you:

  1. Pray for your Lenten Prayer Partner daily.
  2. Mail them a card or letter each week – signed “Your Lenten Prayer Partner.” Use St. John’s address as the return address, not your own.
  3. On Easter Sunday (3/31), you’ll reveal yourself to your Prayer Partner by leaving a small gift or card for them. These gift tables will be set up in Alfriend Hall at each Easter Sunday service (7:30 AM, 9:00 AM, and 11:15 AM). If you’re unable to attend service on, you’re welcome to leave your gift in the front office the week prior. Gifts should cost no more than $10.

This practice is to provide everyone with a sense of comfort and support as well as instill a prayerful practice in ourselves. This is open to everyone of ALL ages, from 3 to 103. Let’s create a community of prayer this Lent as we pray for each other.

If you are interested in being a secret Prayer Partner for someone at St. John’s, please fill out the form below (or fill out a hard copy of the form in the church office) by Friday, February 9. You’ll know your form was successfully submitted when you see a confirmation message. We will be in touch with details about your Lenten Prayer Partner!
