Prayer Line

You are not alone! Did you know St. Stephen the Martyr has prayer warriors who are ready to pray for YOUR intention?

God has given us this incredible gift to intercede on behalf of others through prayer and thanksgiving!

Submit your prayer request to be shared with our Prayer Line Ministry and/or with our Parish Family here on this web-page.

If you have a prayer request to be included in the bulletin or a deceased loved-one we can pray during the Prayers of the Faithful, please contact the parish office at (402) 896-9675 or email

Prayer Requests:

  • Please pray for my cousin's baby girl, Eleanor Iris Kent who was born on Sept. 20, 2021 and is quite sick. Before birth, the doctors found that her heart was not developing as it should. They soon realized the baby's 8th chromosome was not right (it's called Chromosome 8 I think). Basically, she has the chance of being a normal child, but she also has the chance of having lots of developmental difficulties. When she was born she was actually far healthier than anyone thought she would be! She will need to have heart surgery somewhere between the 3rd and 6th months of her life. Today we got some sad news though, she is getting sicker and it's not looking good. Her sodium levels are too low and they think she has cystic fibrosis. They found blood in her stools this morning and she is off all oral meds and only on IVs again. Please please please pray for little baby Eleanor and her family!! Her parents are Colin and Lyndley and her older brother is Henry. (10/1/2021)
