Online Prayer Group FAQ

Welcome to the Marian Mantle Online Prayer Group!
 

Frequently Asked Questions
 (This list will be built from your questions as you ask them.)



Q.  Who belongs to this group?
A.   If you choose to become a member, you will be joining in prayer with a group of parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins, and friends who pray for those who are no longer practicing Catholics.  Each one's story is a little different, but, the heartache is the same.  A child has left the Church and we hurt for them and for ourselves because we want them to have the fullness of Faith found only in the Holy Eucharist.  We do not judge them-Jesus said, "Judge not lest you yourselves be judged."  What we do is love them, unconditionally, because they are our children, our loved ones.  We follow Jesus/ command to "Love one another as I have loved you,"  And we pray--constantly!

Q.  How much does it cost?
A.   There is no cost other than your agreement to pray with us for the group's intentions.  Once a year, during the month of September—the month dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows--we do ask our members to send whatever donation they can spare, to help us cover expenses of the Internet and office.   We will send a reminder in August. 

Q.  How often will I receive an email update?
A.  You will receive an email update every two weeks, on Friday.  This will include prayer requests emailed from the members of the prayer group and those received on the web site from visitors.

Q.  How/where do I send a prayer request?
A.  Email your prayer request(s), to
pray@marianmantle.com  It will be included in the next update.

Q.  When should I pray?
A.   In addition to daily prayer, all members are asked to offer a prayer for the intentions of the group sometime during the 3:00p.m.
hour every Friday, if possible.  The web site team gathers for weekly prayer at that time, also.

Q.   As a member, what should I pray for?
A.   Pray for your own prodigal and for the intentions of all other members, especially for the return of our children to the Catholic Faith.  Plus, pray for peace of mind and joy-filled lives for each of us during this time of patient waiting for our children to return with us to the table of the Lord.

Q.   What are the benefits of membership?
A. This Is What You Receive From Your Membership:

1. Understanding: You are a member of a group of people who understand your pain because we all are now experiencing/or have experienced that same pain.
2. Prayer:  You have the prayers of people who pray with you every day for the return of your prodigal to Holy Mother Church
.
3. Fellowship:  These are people with whom you can share your story if you wish--people with whom you can share spiritual insights learned along the way--people with whom you can share your joys and sorrows.  When you have something you wish to share send an email to 
maryann@marianmantle.com 
4. Privacy:  Your privacy will always be respected.  Only first names will be used.  Names will be kept anonymous at your request. Your email address will not given out to other members or anyone else.  Your prayer requests will NOT be posted on the web site list unless you specifically request they be posted.

Q.   I have more questions.  How/where/who do I ask?
