Prayer Requests


As God has called us to be in relationship with each other, God promises that we will never walk alone. God gave us each other to divide our grief and double our joy.

Do you have a prayer request you would like to pass along? You can share your requests via this form or by calling the church office. When you submit prayer requests, they can also be sent to the St. John Prayer Team via email and added to prayers during worship. Please let us know if you would like your request to be shared with the congregation or if you would prefer it to remain confidential to the Pastor.

The requester needs to check with the person for whom a request is made. Ask the person if they would like to have his or her name shared with the congregation for prayers. 

HOSPITALIZED? When you are hospitalized, your church family wants to be there to help you through the healing process and bring God’s comfort.  Because of privacy laws, hospitals no longer regularly notify churches when a member is admitted.  If you wish for a pastoral staff visit or to be included in the prayers of the church, please contact the church office (a phone number to contact is included on the recording for after hours/weekend notifications).

PRAYER SHAWLS are available for comfort and support of those who are hospitalized, home bound, or just going through difficult times. Please take a shawl from the rack in the atrium.


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call the St John office at (319) 268-0165 or email
