What is the prayer of the brothers and sisters?

The prayer of the brothers and sisters is what we call group prayer when it is for a particular person. 

Everyone gets close to the person who asks for prayer. Sometimes people put their hands on the shoulder of the person in a gesture of fraternal support. We begin by thanking the Lord for his active presence in our lives, His love and His mercy. The person then verbally address their request to the Lord and the brothers and sisters pray with the person. They exercise charisms. They draw from the Word of God a short exhortation, a word of comfort, even an ‘image’ etc.

Many testify to the power of this intercessory prayer especially in the household.

The prayer of the brothers and sisters may also be requested during Community meetings, for example at special events, commitments in Emmanuel, evening programmes and sharing groups at Paray-le-Monial.

The prayer of the brothers and sisters is in a way a simple and practical way of living the Communion of Saints.
