Prayer Requests

Prayer requests take many forms at St. Paul’s.

Please include in your prayers ELCA Bishop Elizabeth Eaton and her staff, our new Synod Bishop the Rev. Bob Humphrey and his staff, Bishop Emeritus Jim Mauney as he enters retirement, all congregations in the call process, seminaries and their students, and pastors awaiting their first call.

Each week, prayers are lifted up for St. Paul’s ministries in the community and around the world.  We pray for our mission partner, Bedford Lutheran Church, and our missionaries in Rwanda.

Petitions for healing and wholeness, and for those in crisis, are referred to the prayer chain by telephone and to our Wednesday evening prayer team.  You may request prayers by filling out a prayer card (found in the pew racks), calling the church office at 757-838-2636 or emailing the church secretary at
