Pastoral Care And Prayer Ministries
The mission of the Grace Anglican Church Pastoral Care and Prayer Ministries is to act as an ambassador for Christ so all can experience the healing touch of Jesus, to know God more intimately, and draw closer to Him through prayer, meals, visits, prayer schools, grief support, and quarterly prayer services.

Personal Prayer Appointments
Receive personal, individual prayer with a team of specially trained, experienced prayer ministers. About an hour and a half should be allowed for personal prayer sessions and an appointment is necessary. All information shared is confidential. If you would like prayer, please contact The Rev. Gus Richard to arrange an appointment time.
Intercessory Prayer Team
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people… 1 Timothy 2:1
Intercessors serve by praying for your confidential requests daily for three weeks. Updates concerning your request are appreciated so we can praise God when prayers are answered and continue interceding when more prayer is required. Be assured all requests are kept strictly confidential. If you would like someone to pray for your request, please contact The Rev. Gus Richard or call the church office at (904) 541-1234.
Homebound and Hospital visitation
Prayer teams are available to visit you if you are homebound or in the hospital due to illness, and to pray with you for your healing. We consider it to be an honor and a privilege to support and pray for those who are hurting or recovering from surgery or illness. If you need someone to come and pray with you, please contact The Rev. Gus Richard or call the church office (904) 541-1234.
If you are homebound or in the hospital, rehabilitation or other convalescent facility, a specially trained team of Lay Eucharistic Ministers would be happy to bring you communion and pray with you. Please contact The Rev. Gus Richard or call the church office at (904) 541-1234.

These chaplains will be trained to distribute Holy Communion and pray for the emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of our congregation as well as their family and friends as requested.
