. . . In Prayer Ministry 

Did you know that you can be the answer to the prayers of someone else?

Christian author, Matthew Kelly, writes about the recorded miracles Jesus performed in the Gospels.  Yes, the miracles were spectacular and supernatural.  But they were also acts of real service to ordinary people and an answer to their prayers.  It is easy for us to think of these miracles happening in a far off place to people we did not know.  Miracles can happen here and now and God can use us to accomplish his answers to people’s prayers!

God invites us to do small things with great love.  Jesus looked around and sought out the person in pain or most in need.  If we will learn to recognize people’s needs and pain, there are so many prayers God can use us to answer.  Too many times we miss the opportunities to be used by Him!

May we, like blind Bartimaeuis call out to the Lord, “Open my eyes so that I might see,” and then do what we can to offer that person help, comfort, a friendly smile, encouragement, a phone call or email, pray with or for them, and so on.

Who is God revealing to you?  Will you allow God to use you to be an answer to their prayers?

What is the Path of Hope?

by Jill Mattson

It is a special place to walk and hope and pray. It is open to anyone in our community who is seeking peace. Due to the increased rate of suicide in recent times and struggles with mental wellness, we hope this will be a place of help and hope, grounded in God’s word for our community. This path journeys around the memorial garden cross which features scripture to pause and reflect and pray. It is our hope that many in our community will find this place helpful and hopeful. All monies donated will help support this vision and mission. Thank you very much!


. . . 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 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 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
