  …In Prayer Ministry

Do not let our guilty feelings keep you from Praying. We are not perfect ! God knows that! But He is our God. He Loves us! He wants us to come to Him in prayer. Talk to Him. God is a God of love! He listens to our prayers! He wants to Help us, He wants us to talk with Him, ask Him in our prayers. Yes, God knows what we want and need before we ask. But God wants us to take the first step in communicating.

We feel inadequate, Yes? But don’t!! GOD loves you! GOD understands you! GOD will listen to everything you tell Him, He is OUR LORD. Prayer is a request to God with regard to a particular cause, care, concern, praise, thankfulness and etc… Just do it! Pray!

“The Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” 2 Corinthians 13:14

There is a place of stillness that allows God the oppor-tunity to work for us and gives us peace. It is a stillness that ceases our scheming, self-vindication, and the search for a temporary means to an end through our own wis-dom and judgement. Instead, it lets God provide an an-swer, through His unfailing and faithful love.

Oh, how often we thwart God’s intervention on our behalf ,by striking back in our own de-fense! May God grant each of us this silent power and submissive spirit! – A B Simpson

The Dream Team intercessors pray specifically for the needs of our pastor and his family. The prayers are communicated every 2 weeks via email or printed up by the office staff for those without email. The Prayer Chain is communicated via email. The prayers are generated from the bulletin Friendship cards, email and phone calls. The PRT (Prayer Responsibility Team) assignments go out to member’s church mail boxes at the beginning of each month. Each month a different church ministry is rotated through each box. These prayers are for the at home prayer support of Immanuel’s ministries.

In Prayer Shawl Ministry:

A prayer shawl is meant to be given to anyone (male or female including children) who has had surgery, been diagnosed with an illness, lost a loved one or is dealing with a hardship.

Prayers are said while the shawl is being made, that recipients may feel comfort and love as they wrap themselves in it. Shawls are available in the Fellowship Hall in the far right hand corner on cabinet shelves. Please be sure to check/sign the book saying whom you are giving a shawl to because we don’t want to duplicate.
Please let me know of anyone you believe should receive one of these Prayer Shawls.

Thank you and if any questions please feel free to call or email me at 218-546-6065 or
