Scituate Lutheran church offers drive-through prayers

As the cars rolled into the parking lot of the Christ Lutheran Church in Scituate, 73-year-old parishioner Diane Waterfield shuffled a handful of prayer cards and reviewed her game plan. The prayers she would offer to passing motorists as part of the church’s new “drive-through” ministry needed to be efficient, yet personal.

“We get their names right away and ask, ‘What type of a prayer do you need today?’ ” she said. “It’s not like in church, when we can pray for our children, our families, our kids, the dog, the cat, and you can go on and on if you want to. Out here, you’re working quick.”
