Care and Help
Prayer chain members recite the following prayer daily for those on the church prayer lists.
Lord God, giver of life and health, comfort and relieve your sick servants and give your power of healing to those who minister to their needs, that they may be strengthened in their weaknesses and have confidence in your loving care, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Members of the congregation may request prayers for themselves as well as for their family and friends. E-mail updates are sent out to members of the Prayer Chain on a regular basis. A phone tree is used to update those not using e-mail. The Prayer Chain List is available only to members of the Prayer Chain. The names of acutely ill parishioners are read during church services.
Parishioners may call the church office at 602-840-8210 to have a name added to the prayer list as well as to report progress updates. You may also click here to contact us. The Prayer Chain is a vital and rewarding ministry of Christ Church of the Ascension.
The clergy of Christ Church of the Ascension make regular visits to parishioners in Phoenix, AZ hospitals, nursing homes and in their homes. Our clergy are happy to see anyone in need for the purpose of receiving the sacrament of communion, anointing of the sick, and prayer and conversation.
We also have a dedicated team of Lay Eucharistic Visitors who take the sacrament of communion to parishioners who are unable to make it to church on a permanent or extended basis. If you or someone you know requires a visitation, please contact the church office at 602-840-8210.
