To that end, the Candle Service.
Here at Crossroads Joe's Ministrations, we're starting a twice-a-month Candle Service for exactly this purpose. The way we do this is simple.
The Basic Candle Service
For the Candle Service, we will collect prayer requests from those who are in need. Clients, family, friends and even perfect strangers who read these words. These requests will be printed or written up, and placed beneath a seven-day Vigil Candle, properly anointed toward the prayer work at hand.
Each Candle Service will be aimed at a particular condition that needs prayer: healing, love, prosperity and those other issues that come to us living in this difficult world. If you look to the right side of this blog, there is a list of the upcoming Candle Services, by date.
Simply send in your prayer requests to firstname.lastname@example.org and you'll be added to the appropriate Service. These prayers don't have to be just for you, however. Feel free to send in prayers on behalf of your loved ones and those who know who could use a little extra help.
With your donation, we'll dress and pray over a donational candle in your name, lit from the central Prayer Candle being used for the Candle Service.
Once that candle has burnt out, we'll add your petition back to the other petitions under the central Prayer Candle for the rest of the Candle Service's length.
