Praying even harder

St. James Lutheran Church, Belle Fourche, S.D., continues to hear that its prayer ministry is appreciated and needed.

Since it was featured in The Lutheran ("Pray it forward," January 2009), St. James has been asked to pray for a Minneapolis woman worried about her family’s mortgage and an Iowa woman in conflict with her pastor.

A churchwide employee called a letter he received indicating members were praying for him a “glowing candle” — a slow burn of God’s goodness amid so much darkness and distress, said Jeff M. Otterman, pastor.
