The prayer line is composed of volunteers. Prayer requests come from family or friends, from all sections of the conuntry and all religious denominations. Prayer requests are called to the coordinator, who then calls another name and so forth. Our prayer line often recives prayers of thanksgiving for those for whom we have prayed. We share in a sense of great wonder that the power of prayers can really create miracles of faith and healing and be comforting to those who are grieving at a loss of a loved one.
