Whether you have experienced a personal relationship with our
Heavenly Father or you are just beginning to
become aware of His power, we all need guidance.
We need to know how to pray.
The Lord’s Prayer, is an example of how to pray.
The unbelievable power of prayer is our pipe-line to the power of God. He loves to hear and answer our prayers and do what is right for us. Persevering in prayer is re-quired for some prayers to get through. Prayer is one of the most powerful weapons God has given us.
Having a distinct sense of who we are speaking to helps us formulate what to say and how to say it. Which of the Holy Trinity should we talk to…God, who is the Heavenly Father? The Son, whose name is Jesus, who is our friend, brother, and Savior? Or to the Holy Spirit, who fills and empowers us?
In prayer, we should praise God and ask Him for what we need. If we want our prayers to be heard,
our hearts need to be right with God and with one another.
God will bless us with everything we need, in His time.
It is His promise and He is in control.
He is the Good Shepherd. We need to let Him lead us.

. . . 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
