Has This Ever Happened to You? 

In some of the most casual conversations, you find out that prayers are needed, for either that individual or for someone they know. You may not be aware that they are asking for prayers. They may not know themselves. However, in the process of prayer, the Holy Spirit plays a role both unique and unexpected. The Spirit prays for us because our knowledge is incomplete. Because we are 

ignorant of what is best for us, and therefore don’t know how to pray as we should. But the Spirit prays according to perfect knowledge. This is His silent prayer ministry. 

Romans 8:26 

The Spirit helps us. We are very weak, but the Spirit helps us with our weak-ness. If we don’t know how to pray as we should, the Spirit himself speaks to God for us. He begs God for us, speaking to Him with feelings too deep for words.

. . . 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
