Lakewood United Methodist Church (where we worship) has upgraded their web site. It really looks good.
One of the great new features is that you can submit prayer requests here. Offering to pray for others is a kind and effective thing to do. I have found that if you offer to have someone’s prayer concerns sent through a prayer ministry, they are often quite moved. I always ask permission first, but have never had anyone decline. You can follow up with them later to see how the prayers were answered, to see how you can help them and to perhaps engage in discussions about Jesus.
The prayer ministry at LUMC is expanding into many new areas, and I’m excited about it.
