Healing Prayer: 7:00 p.m., second Tuesday of each month
Every Christian has wrestled with how to pray for themselves or others suffering from illness. We long to witness healing such as Christ and his disciples performed. The healing prayer ministry can help us as we navigate difficult times of our lives and search for God’s peace and love. Come pray for God’s healing love at this ecumenical worship service. This intimate service includes scripture readings, communion, hymns and time for individual healing prayers. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
Healing prayer is simply bringing our needs to God through prayer and expectantly watching for the Holy to respond. We believe in seeking healing through all methods provided by God including traditional medicine, complementary medicine, therapy, pastoral counseling, AA groups, etc. We also believe that through prayer God performs amazing healing of body, mind and spirit. We pray for all manner of needs: healing of pain (e.g. arthritis, injury), healing of relationships, healing of destructive behaviors, healing of minor or serious medical conditions, healing of past memories or abusive relationships, general blessings for work and family, guidance on life changes, etc. We have witnessed many healings of body, mind and spirit through the grace and healing power of God.

Many parishioners, but perhaps not everyone, are aware that the healing rite – the laying on of hands – is offered at St. Matthew’s. The laying on of hands for healing has been a part of the ministry of the church since its earliest days. Healing was an integral part of Jesus’ ministry but there are many earlier references to instances of healing in the Old Testament, for example in the Psalms (Psalm 6) and in I Samuel (1:1-2:10). The healing prayer team members offer the laying on of hands for healing in the side chapel during the Eucharist at 10:30 am (9:00am during the summer) every Sunday.
Currently, the healing prayer team consists of lay ministers who have been trained in the theology and practice of healing prayer and commissioned by St. Matthew’s clergy. We believe that healing was central to Christ’s ministry during his lifetime and is also central to God’s mission in today’s world. Whether you are a longtime parishioner of St. Matthews or someone who has never set foot in a church, we offer you the opportunity to come in silence or to name that which troubles you and to receive a simple and compassionate prayer for your healing in mind, body and spirit.
