  …In Prayer Ministry

 What makes God listen ? 

In his Word, God gives us very clear guidance for what makes Him listen to our prayers. Our father God desires our fellowship so much more than we do and is waiting eagerly for us to call unto Him. In Jeremiah 29:12-13, God reveals the importance of having an undis-tracted heart to be heard when he says, ‘ Then you will call on Me and come pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. In Psalm 145:18, God emphasizes the importance of the truth. The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth; In Jeremiah 33:3, He promises, “Call to Me, and I will answer you and tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.

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 giv-ing 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
