People place a great
trust in Jesus’ promise to hear the prayers of those two or three or
more who join their voices to pray for others (see Matthew 18:19).
Thus, it is truly impressive — and humbling — to realize what

All you have to do is promise to pray by name for the people on our
list each day, using the prayer that appears below. We ask
prayer partners to check this web page each Monday for a current
list of people to be prayed for. There’s perhaps no greater
gift and service that we can offer one another than that of our
prayers, especially for those who are in need. Another
advantage to this ministry: anyone can participate! – and, there’s no meetings or training required!
Would you like our Prayer Partners to
pray for someone?
Please call the Rectory Office at 227-7245 to have a name included
on the list. Please note: names of the
sick will remain on the list for four weeks and then
be removed. If the person's illness continues beyond that
time, we will gladly re-publish the name; just call the Rectory
Office to inform us. Names of the Deceased will remain on the
list for one month after the date of death.
Prayer for Saint Luke Parish
Gracious and loving God,
you have given us Saint Luke to be our patron and model.
As physician, he brought your healing
and compassion to the sick.
As evangelist, he brought the good news of your mercy
to the poor and the sorrowing.
As faithful disciple, he taught us how to leave all things for the
your Kingdom and to pray with complete trust in you.
Through his intercession,
bring healing to the sick
(especially: – here mention the names of the sick on
the list below);
bring comfort to the lonely and the sorrowing;
give peace to the troubled and the dying,
grant eternal rest to those whom you have called from this
(especially: – here mention the names of the deceased on
the list below).
Bless all the members of our Parish, our clergy and our staff;
fill us all with the Spirit of your compassion
that we may generously show your love to all who are in need.
We make our prayer through Christ, our
