Healing Prayer Ministry
We all face difficulties in life; no one escapes times of hardship or suffering. The good news of the Christian life is that we never have to endure such times alone. The purpose of the new St. Mary's Church Healing Prayer Ministry is to help individuals experience God's healing love by providing them an opportunity to be listened to and prayed for and with by a team of trained intercessors.
Members of the St. Mary's Healing Prayer Ministry have just completed the Institute for Christian Ministry's Formation for Healing Ministry's two-year, intensive training program. Two prayer teams are now available for those desiring prayer. A prayer team will meet with you individually by appointment. There is no associated cost, and everything is completely confidential. Please contact Michelle Moody for more information.
Healing prayer is available by appointment during the following times (one-hour sessions):
- Monday mornings from 9:45-11:30
- Tuesday evenings from 6:00-8:30
The following are comments from some parishioners who received prayer:
"I recently went through a painful marital crisis and felt I was becoming detached from God's reach. I learned of the Healing Ministry at St. Mary's and asked to be a supplicant. It was a very spiritual and uplifting opportunity. I felt warmed by the love from the prayer team, I felt hopeful from their heartfelt prayers and I felt the Holy Spirit redeem my faith, which was what I most needed. I urge anyone with special needs to seek this prayerful opportunity." Yvonne
"As a way of helping me deal with the daily struggles of caring for a disabled child, our Healing Ministry group has been praying with Kathryn and me for several months. My eyes have truly been opened to the reality of Jesus, His healing ministry, and the Holy Spirit. We have seen Kathryn gain physical strength and I have experienced much needed comfort and rest through their God-given gifts of love, nurture, and prayer." Carla
"Love is the gift of self. It means emptying oneself to reach out to others. In a certain sense, it means forgetting oneself for the good of others" (Pope John Paul II).
"Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep" ( Romans 12:15).
