Healing Prayer consists of ten members of Peace who have participated in Dr. Francis Geddes’ training entitled “Developing our Healing Gifts.” One or more of these individuals will be available on most Sundays during Eucharist.
Healing Prayer provides a way to receive God’s healing presence .You may come to the healing prayer member and kneel at the prayer station after receiving communion. You will be asked if you have a specific prayer request or in need of a blessing.
The person praying with you has received training and is pledged to confidentiality. We pray with you for the mystery of God’s healing energy through healing prayers. Your concern will not be shared among the Healing Prayer group members. If you desire further support and healing prayers, please speak directly with Pr. Steve.
Prayer Circles consist of members at Peace who respond to prayer requests through a phone tree network. To join a prayer circle or make a request, contact Pr. Steve.
The contemplative has nothing to tell you except to reassure you and say: if you dare to penetrate your own silence and advance without fear into the solitude of your own heart, and risk the sharing of that solitude with the lonely other who seeks God through you and with you, then you will truly recover the light and the capacity to understand what is beyond words and beyond explanations because it is too close to be explained: it is the intimate union in the depths of your own heart, of God’s spirit and your own secret inmost self, so that you and God are in all truth One Spirit.
