Starting this Sunday, November 4th, 2018 we are excited to announce the launch of a new prayer ministry at Grace. Our prayer team will joyfully be ready to receive anyone who feels in need of prayer immediately following our gathering.
The Prayer Team will expectantly intercede on the behalf of the discouraged, weak, weary, suffering, and sick. They will respond to what you might bring forward to be prayed for and they will seek to be led by the Holy Spirit in the moment.
Since the prayer time will be after our gatherings it will be highlighted during our benediction. In calling the body to go—to be sent—we recognize some might feel like they can not go because they are wounded or sick. This upholds a good, biblical tension of care and mission in our liturgy. It is our hope that through this time of prayer individuals who are wounded, sick or hurting will then be equipped to be sent out.
We invite you to come forward and ask for prayer. Here are a few things we are expecting to pray for:
For healing (physical, emotional, relational)
For the removal of suffering
To help fight temptation/sin
To confess sin
To fight the lies you are hearing/believing
To cast off demons
To help forgive others
To help reconcile with others
To be encouraged, built up, consoled
We are praying now for the Holy Spirit to do powerful work through this ministry.
Our God is the God of comfort who comforts us in our affliction
Our God is the God of healing who heals the broken
Our God is the God of forgiveness who forgives sinners
Our God is the God of reconciliation who reconciles what’s torn a part
Our God is the God of the victory who has triumphed over the enemy
Let’s pray expectantly to this God who has Genesis 1 (creation) on his resume!
