Zion's Prayer Chain
“If the only prayer I ever say is Thank You…that is enough.” (Meister Eckhart) We are invited to form within ourselves grateful hearts. If your heart is over-flowing, you can ask Zion’s Prayer Chain to echo your joy in thankful prayers to God. “Prayer is answering speech. The first word is God’s word. Prayer is a human word and is never the initiating and shaping word simply because we are never first, never primary.” (Eugene Peterson) If you want to multiply this answering speech on your behalf, you can ask Zion’s Prayer Chain to join you. You may access the prayer chain by calling the church office at 563-242-7391. Your request will be confidentially passed on to the prayer chain.
