Healing Prayer Ministry
Join Rev. Dick and Cathy Brooks on the second Wednesday of each month for a healing prayer service. The minister and prayer teams create and hold a holy, or sacred, space for healing to take place and focus God’s healing power on the individual.
A healing ministry is God’s work of healing on all levels, including physical, emotional, and spiritual healing as well as the healing of relationships. We believe God offers balance, harmony, and wholeness to heal whatever brokenness we may have in our lives through God’s presence, love, and grace.
It is God through the Holy Spirit who opens us to healing. The minister and prayer teams create and hold a holy, or sacred, space for healing to take place and focus God’s healing power on the individual. People can request prayers for themselves or someone else and can act as a substitute for the other person.
A healing ministry is an extension of what ministers do: praying for the sick in church and at home, visiting people in the hospital, visiting the homebound and visiting people who are grieving. Healing prayer can work in conjunction with traditional medical practices, such as going to the doctor, taking medicine, physical therapy, exercise and healthy eating.
We meet in the parlor at 7:00 pm. If you would like to have someone pray with you and for you in regard to physical, mental, emotional or spiritual well-being, this service offers a wonderful opportunity.

Healing Prayer at St. Stephen’s
Jesus was known for many things in the first century. He was considered a social prophet and a rabbi. He was known as a teacher of wisdom and the leader of a new movement. And he was known far and wide as a healer. As one New Testament scholar has pointed out, “More healing stories are told about Jesus than about any other figure in the Jewish tradition.” (Borg, The Heart of Christianity) Jesus also sent his disciples out to heal others, and he promised that they would do greater things than he had done. The ministry of healing has been a part of the Christian experience from the very beginning.
As a part of our Sunday evening Celtic service, we offer the ministry of healing prayer for any who desire it. Healing prayer ministers are available in the side chapels during the administration of Holy Communion. If you would like to receive healing prayer and the laying on of hands, either for yourself or for someone you love, we invite you to move to either side chapel in the main church after you have received Communion. If the healing prayer ministers are praying for someone already, we invite you to take a seat in the front pews of the chapel, and come forward when there is space available.
It is often helpful if you tell the healing prayer minister your name and the concern for which you are asking prayer. If you prefer not to do this, that is fine–everyone’s situation is different. Although there is usually a brief spoken prayer at the beginning and at the end, the healing prayer minister will lay hands on you and join with you in silently opening ourselves and presenting the concern to God. This is not a ministry of magical incantations. Instead, this healing prayer ministry is simply about fellow pilgrims opening ourselves more completely to the healing love of God. Although God is always with every one of us, there are times in all of our lives when we need help in becoming more fully present to God. Much as a group of friends once brought a paralytic to Jesus so that Jesus might heal him, so we sometimes benefit from the loving care of others who bring us more fully into the presence of God.
On some evenings, there might be people waiting in the chapels for healing prayer when we reach the conclusion of the service. When it is time for all to say the prayer after Communion, we’ll pause in our prayers for healing. When the service continues, we will continue to offer the ministry of healing prayer at the front of each chapel, so please exit quietly. And since prayers for healing are going on near the exit door at the Chapel of the Good Shepherd, it is helpful if you either use a different exit or move very quietly.
Whether or not you choose to present yourself for healing prayer on any given night, we always welcome your personal prayers that our Sunday evening gatherings may be filled with compassion, and that everyone who worships here may know the healing love of God in their lives.
To learn more about the healing prayer ministry at St. Stephen’s, contact the Rev. Penny Nash or Catherine Whitham.

During the Prayers of the People in the worship service there will be a time for the congregation to participate aloud by lifting up either personal names or names listed in the bulletin.
People in need of prayer are always encouraged to seek prayer from prayer teams located at the back of the church during Communion.
Long-term prayer requests will be posted in the prayer center where they will remain for two weeks. They can be renewed every two weeks by making a new prayer request. You can make a prayer request for the prayer center here.
Personal Prayer Ministry (based on Restoring the Foundations)
Are you wanting to experience spiritual breakthrough in your life? Do you sense that God wants to bring you to a new level of functioning in your life in Christ? Often this breakthrough cannot happen until we replace the old filters in our hearts and minds and go through a process of spiritual cleansing. We believe in an integrated approach to dealing with the blockages, habits, hurts and oppressions that keep us from thriving. This is an intensive process that will take several hours to pray through and requires some evaluation and transparency. Should you be interested in this kind of prayer contact Father Alex Leighton at: 703-670-0093 or by email: aleighton@ allsaintswoodbridge.org or Julie Tilton via the Caring Ministries voicemail 703 670-0093 ext. 113, or email email@example.com

Holy Eucharist and Healing Service
A Word About the Healing Ministries at Grace Church
Jesus was known for many things in the first century. He was a social prophet and a rabbi. He was known as a teacher of wisdom and the leader of a new movement. And he was known far and wide as a healer. Story after story in the gospels describe these healings. Surely a part of his electric presence was the expectation of both supplicants and onlookers that he would perform a healing. Jesus also sent his disciples out to heal others, and he promised that they would do greater things than he had done. The ministry of healing has been a part of the Christian experience from the very beginning.
On Wednesdays as a part of our Eucharist and at our monthly Celtic services, 7:00 p.m., second Sundays from September to May, we offer the ministry of healing prayer for any who desire it. A lay person and a clergy person are available to the right of the altar during the administration of Holy Communion. If you would like to receive healing prayer and the laying on of hands, either for yourself or for someone you love, we invite you to move to go there after you have received Communion. If the healing ministers are praying for someone already, we invite you to take a seat nearby and come forward when there is a space available.
It is often helpful if you tell the healing minister the concern for which you are asking prayer. If you prefer not to do this, that is fine—everyone’s situation is different. Although there is usually a brief spoken prayer at the beginning and at the end, the healing minister will lay hands on you and join with you in silently opening ourselves and presenting the concern to God. This is not a ministry of magical incantations. Instead, this healing ministry is simply about fellow pilgrims opening ourselves more completely to the healing love of God. Although God is always with every one of us, there are times in all of our lives when companionship is instrumental in becoming more fully present to God. Much as a group of friends once brought a paralytic to Jesus so that Jesus might heal him, so we sometimes benefit from the loving care of others who accompany us into the presence of God.
Whether or not you choose to present yourself for healing prayer, we welcome your personal prayers, that this gathering may be filled with compassion, and that everyone who worships here may know the healing love of God in their lives.
