During the day, you can actively and earnestly give praise to God. During your waking hours, you can set aside time to make a prayer request which can provide a unique and special way for God to hear your pleas. However, once the sun goes down and you are ready to get some rest at the end of a long day, night prayers can implore God to keep you safe and protected throughout the night.
We will print and place your prayer request on the Stone of Anointing; the place where Christ’ body was laid down after being removed from the crucifix and prepared for burial.
