Lenten Prayer Card

Lenten Prayer is an opportunity for the Rector to pray personally for you about anything going on in your life and ministry. As part of his annual Lenten Retreat, our Rector requests prayer cards from the congregation.

How can he pray for you? Are there things going on in your life you would like him to know about? Concerns? Prayers you would like lifted up? Simply write whatever is on your heart.

How do you give him your prayer requests?

  • Pick up a Prayer card in the narthex or church office, fill it out, and turn it in to the office or in the offering plate
  • Click on the link below to print out a Lenten Prayer card. You can then drop it off at the office or in the offering plate, or mail to: St. Michael’s Church, 71 Broad St., Charleston, SC 29401
  • Or you can simply email the Rector’s Assistant, Susan Waring, with your prayer request at susan@stmichaelschurch.net
