    The AFP Prayer

    Lord Jesus, give to your church a renewed desire to pray, that together we may know your will, be filled with your love, and experience your grace and power, for the healing of your world, to your glory. AMEN

    Prayer at Julian

    Christians are encouraged to be “People of Prayer,” connecting with God through prayers:
    Adoration: Prayer expressing love and adoration for who God is.
    Thanksgiving: Prayer of thankfulness for what God does.
    Confession: Prayer acknowledging our imperfection, and asking God’s forgiveness.
    Intercession: Prayer for others who are in need of healing of body, mind and spirit.
    Petition: Prayer for ourselves.
    You are welcome to ask anyone in the congregation to pray with and for you at any time.


    Prayers of the People during Worship Services

    Most worship services include a time to offer prayers. These opportunities are called the “Prayers of the People” or “Intercessions,” which are usually led by members of the congregation. You are invited to write your request in a Prayer Request binder, located near the entrance to the sanctuary, behind the back pew. The binder includes a loose leaf sheet for each Sunday, with spaces under a few headings to enter names or situations that you wish to include in the Prayers of the People. This sheet is provided to the prayer leader who will include your requests in the prayers they offer during the service.


    Confidential Prayer by a Prayer Chain

    Julian of Norwich has a dedicated group of people who pray in confidence for those who are ill, in distress, or otherwise in need of prayer. If you wish to have prayer for yourself or someone you know, please fill in the Prayer Request form.
