  …In Prayer Ministry

Our war is not of flesh and blood “but against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places (Eph. 6:12 NIV) Will we engage each battle with FAITH, and stand firm against the enemy? First pray (with thanksgiving) for all men and women in authority. We must fight the good fight of Faith and Believe GOD’S promise to hear our prayers and help us as we stand and shine our light in this dark world. 

It is the love of God, the fruits of the spirit and the weapons of our warfare “that are mighty through God ” that affect change in the HEARTS of men and women. This transformation of INDIVIDUALS eventually leads to a transforming society. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY.

. . . 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 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
