    this is awesome….Thank you for this very extensive prayer list,,,,Thanks be to God…!


  2. josh says:

    Well, it’s awfully long, but this is a big congregation and when people request, I put them up. The best way to read it is fast, just the names – God already knows all about it, so join your spirit to the Spirit’s and all will be well.

    Thank you, David. I just put that suggestion up top.

  3. D. Andrew Eddy says:

    Thank you Josh! I have just discovered The Daily Office thanks to Peter, my friend and parish priest. This is a true blessing for me throughout each day – and for so many others you can be sure.

    My long journey as a gay man has brought me to yet another moment of wonder. Thank you for the openness of your heart and this site. Blessings upon you and all who come to and support this important mission.



    • josh says:

      We’re glad to have you with us, Andrew. Thank Peter on our behalf.

      Be sure to look for a special prayer tonight at Evening Prayer. Happy Pride Weekend.

  5. says:

    My dear friend Lael is living through the final stages of pancreatic cancer.

    Glory be to you O Lord!

    O God of Love and Lord of Mercy, we pray that our sister Lael move ever closer to you as she prepares for her release from all the cares of this earthly existance. May all the joys of her life in this world be for her a reassurance of your continued presence throughout eternity. At that great moment of release and relief, we pray that you receive her spirit into your all-accepting heart of compassion, that she may rest in your love and peace for ever.

    Amen +++


  6. Marilyn says:

    Dear Josh,
    As always thank you for all that you do. Please add Andy Zermeno who was killed in Afghanistan this past weekend. His family and mine are very close.
    Always, Marilyn


  7. Cynthia B. Astle, OSL says:

    Dear Josh, thank you as always for this incredible ministry. Please add to your prayer list the ecumenical Order of Saint Luke, a dispersed monastic community of men and women, lay and clergy, who gather this week for their Annual Retreat. This year we meet at Montserrat Jesuit Retreat Center in Lake Dallas, TX. I will lift up this site and your ministry in our prayers, especially for the providence of the funding you need to upgrade the website.
    Bless you,
    Cynthia Astle, OSL


  8. Jane says:

    Please add to the prayer list for healing, Nick, 14 years old with a brain tumor.


  9. Elizabeth Jones says:

    Hello, Josh.

    Thanks so much for keeping this list up to date.

    I have two requests. First, my friend Stu’s wife Pam was just operated on for a brain tumor last week The doctors got a lot of it, but not all.
    Second, I need some kind of employment. I’m working one shift a week, but it’s not enough.
    Thanks so much.


  10. Irene King says:


    Pastor(s) in this city should take notice….because you are being given a warning from God. Either you start doing what God called you to do which is to help the community and stop pocketing God’s money or we are going to pray to God to remove you from office. The Intercessory Group. We are tired of people not being fed the word of God.
    If you don’t know what you are doing, then get down from there. God wants to carry out His message. If you are not doing His will then please, for God’s sake, remove yourself from office and let the Real Man of God do the Lord’s work. This move of God is Real…
    Satan is deceiving so many people and we need anointed men of God. Please, I beg you do not hold back God’s people. If you do not know what you are doing, get help from a pastor that you know who is in God’s will. Put your pride and your self-righteous spirit aside and get delivered; lets go on and do this work for God. You know who you are. Our Intercessory Group will continue praying for you pastors who are in line with the word of God. “Right On!” But, for you pastors that are ripping God off and His people, “WOE UNTO YOU!”


    MATTHEW 23:13-15 & 23:25, 27 & 29 LUKE 11:44 LUKE 6:24-26 LUKE 11:42-43, LUKE 11:46-47 & 52 REVELATION 8:13 & REVELATION 12:12

    MATTHEW 23:13 But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrite! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
    14 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.
    15 “Wow to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrite! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.
    23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law; justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.
    25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse to outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence.
    27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.
    29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous,
    LUKE 11:44 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like graves which are not seen, and the men who walk over them are not aware of them.”
    LUKE 6:24 “But woe to you who are rich, For you have received your consolation.
    Luke 6:25 Woe to you who are full, For you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep.
    26 Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
    LUKE 42: “But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass by justice and the love of God. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.
    43 “Woe to you Pharisee! For you love the best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces.
    46 And He said, “ Woe to you also, lawyers! For you load men with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers.
    47 “Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.
    52 “Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered.”
    REVELATION 8:13 And I looked, and I heard and angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”
    12:12 “Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”


    Note: This word from the Lord was given to me in 2006. I was on a fast for 40 days and afterward this is what He told me to write. He told me to send it to everyone. I don’t know which Pastor this word is for I’m only doing what the Lord told me to do. God Bless You All. In Jesus Name.


    • josh says:

      Irene, If you got this message five years ago, you’ve already broadcast it by now, so enough already. You don’t need to be taking up our international space, or our congregation’s time, for your local message. All you’re doing is taking advantage of our comments section.

    Please pray for Steve, who needs healing of mind, body and spirit.

    And thank you for this wonderful site – it has become a mainstay of my prayer experience.


  18. Mary-Elise Haug says:

    I have a prayer request corresponding to something being disseminated in church bulletins around the state of Indiana tomorrow, 2/26/2012.

    My prayer is there will families that see the bulletin from Advance Indiana and look past its political message. That it will end up helping some families that have kids struggling with their identify, sexual orientation and that they will learn about the Indiana Youth Group (IYG) and the resources it provides for LGBT and questioning kids.


    • josh says:


      Subdeacon Andrew and I discussed this; your request is very appropriate. We support the IYG and I’ve commented in their favor on several Indiana newspaper websites.

      Since we only found out about this anti-Gay bulletin insert the day before, we reworded your request to cover this and future efforts to defend oppression in God’s name. I haven’t checked our list today but I bet it’s there or soon will be. Thank you.



  19. Hi Josh,
    I have a few prayer requests:

    For the dearly departed

    For Healing of Body, Mind & Soul
    Jon, diabetes, congestive heart failure
    Gail, Jesse, Sherri and her family – hurt by churches or burned out by Christianity

    For Sobriety

    For Those Looking for Work
    Mary, Denise

    For the Homeless

    Financial Needs

    For Those in Discernment

    For Our Parishes & Ministries

    • josh says:

      Copied and sent to Subdeacon Andrew, Keeper of the Prayer List.

      (It’s better for people to e-mail these requests rather than leave them as comments, because we’re slower to pick up on the comments. But eventually your requests get where they’re supposed to go, on the list.)



  20. martha says:

    Please continue to pray. For Rosalind


  21. Tracey says:

    Josh, Please remove my mom “Libby” from the list for sobriety and place her on the list for the departed. She died peacefully last Sunday with her three daughters at her bedside. Thank you. Tracey


  22. kfeldpausch says:

    Can you give directions about where and to whom we should email prayer requests? I emailed one, but I’m not sure I sent it to the right place. Thanks.


  23. D. Andrew Eddy says:

    Good morning kfeldpausch,

    Prayer List requests can be made here at the Comments RSS at the bottom of the Prayer List or emailed directly to me, Subdeacon Andrew , Keeper of the Prayer List:

    I look forward to hearing from you.




    • josh says:

      This omission is probably my fault. I did receive in the last few weeks a prayer request that I failed to pass on immediately. Then when I looked for it, it was gone. Somehow my e-mail program magically changed itself to get rid of e-mails more than X days old. I apologize, kfeldpausch and Andrew. The number of e-mails here can get heavy at times, which the subdeacons try to help me with.

      We take prayer requests seriously, and we pray them ourselves, Andrew doesn’t just keep a list. But he can’t prevent a Vicar Breakdown.



  24. peter says:

    please include The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)


  25. Tracey says:

    Please put my husband’s friend Ralph on the list for the sick he has some blood disorder and it hasn’t been diagnosed. Also could you put Holy Spirit Episcopal Church on the list as that is where I will be going once we move. I will continue to follow you out there. I am so glad that we finally met. God Bless you Josh and all the people associated with this site. Tracey


  26. Tracey says:

    Josh, Holy Spirit Episcopal Church is in Missoula, MT if you would like to include the city and state. Thanks. Tracey

  28. Josh,
    Thanks be to God for your ministry to this community. Please pray for the people of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Santa Maria, California. Finding your site has been wonderful. I will visit often. I will pray for you and all the Subdeacons.


  29. Michael says:

    In thanksgiving for the continued ministry of our Vicar, Josh, on the occasion of his birthday (belatedly).

Please keep members of the Waldie and Demers families who mourn his death in your prayers, too. Learning he had cancer and then his death all happened so suddenly…:(

He has a short recovery period, and then will be fully engaged in the world again. I know he’s looking forward to his first walk in the harbor next week. Our prayers were answered, God is great.


    • Josh says:

      Great news, Katrina! Give Frank our best. I want to hear about that walk in the harbor!


      • Katrina Soto says:

        Happy News, Josh. Today Frank did take his first walk at the harbor. I went with him (along with our pooch) to be sure he didn’t overdo it; he tends to go all out, so I thought a moderator would be a good thing. He did well and is looking forward to resuming his usual schedule. We are so blessed to live in a lovely little seaside town with a wonderful marina just a mile or two down the road. Great for walking, breathing the clean ocean air, people watching, observing all the ocean sports, and marveling at God’s goodness to humankind.

  97. Please pray for my daughter, Jennifer Pakalski. After Surgery for Uterine Cancer last winter and three rounds of Chemo earlier this year, we learned yesterday that the Cancer is back. (We were warned this was likely to happen, but it is still a shock). This time the Cancer is in her remaining lymph nodes. Her surgeon is on vacation this week, but the Physician’s Asst. says they’ve caught it early and surgery may not be necessary. We’re assuming this means more Chemo–which is effective for her, but is hard on her. Jennifer has a son in college and a daughter in High School. (our grandkids) Her husband has just returned to work as a High School teacher in inner-city Milwaukee. As a result, much of her care and chauffering to appointments will fall on her mom, (my wife). I’m a semi-retired United Methodist clergyman serving a small church half time.
