When You’re on the Prayer List


When You’re on the Prayer List
Matthew 18:19-20
Psalm 46:1

When you’re on the Prayer List,
And people see your name,
There’s a hopeful feeling –
The answer will be proclaimed.

Requests go out though the email,
And on the church website, too.
Where two or three agree,
They are “touching” you.

Then you receive a phone call.
It’s from Mrs. Brown.
She offers a lot of Christian love
Which takes you “up” from “down.”

An awesome card comes.
It’s signed “Pastor Bill.”
He says to “Get Well Soon.”
Your heart with joy is filled.

Sister June brings
A family-size chicken pot pie.
It help so much for meals
And God is glorified.

The children in the Sunday School
Make a DVD.
They sing your favorite gospel song.
It blesses you to see.

You are glad that they are praying.
This changes your direction.
You feel at peace now
As you have this intercession.

— Charles B. Mayes

The Prayer List is important for all churches to keep tabs on those with physical and spiritual needs.  That way those who want to can lift others up in prayer.  This may lead to knowledge of situations and ministry to those with needs.  We must not forget to pray for others.
