The Order of St. Luke

The Order of St. Luke

3 candles burningThe Order of St. Luke the Physician is an international ministry of intercessory prayer, and in particular, prayers for healing. The Diocese of Fort Worth has a chapter of this international ministry and our parish has been participating in this ministry for several years now with its own group. We are told in Scripture that we are to pray without ceasing, and that we should pray for one another especially in times of need and sickness. If you would like to become a person of deeper and more dedicated intercessory prayer, then OSL is for you. Members of the St. John’s OSL meet on the second Sunday of every month for lunch and a time of study and learning (after all, continual study and education through the guidance of the Holy Spirit is necessary to become well-equipped prayer warriors for God). Additionally, some members meet immediately after the 10:30 a.m. Eucharist each week in the chapel for a short time of intercessory prayer. Beginning at the October meeting, Suzanne Prosise will begin a study that will provide step by step directions and guidance for praying based upon the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. This will be a wonderful study on prayer and the spiritual life for busy people and a great time to join OSL.
