POWER OF PRAYER 

The Church in America is indeed in desperate need of revival! It’s time for the faithful to arise and fill the airwaves with a different kind of influence — heav-enly influence ! As God’s children, we alone have a right to boldly approach His throne to ask for the grace and help that our nation needs. We all have an invitation by the Lord Himself as His ”elect” to secure ”legal protection”
our enemy through the power of prayer. He said we should always pray and never give up (Luke 18:1-8, NASB). We need the Holy Spirit to open the hearts of Americans to receive His Gospel. By ourselves, we have no power to release revival in our nation, but Almighty God has invited us before His throne and given us His ear.

. . . Dream Intercessors

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 re-cipients may feel comfort and love as they wrap them-selves in it. Shawls are available in the Fellowship Hall in the far right hand corner on the cabinet shelves. Please be sure to check/sign the book saying to whom you are giving a shawl 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 contact me at 218-546-6065 or by email
