What is Healing Prayer?
Healing Prayer is when believers pray for healing for the sick. It does not matter the faith history of the person receiving prayer, or what they believe or don’t believe.
In the secret place within each person may come a season(s) of feeling forsaken, a season(s) for being alone in the dark. There is a potential moment in each story of loss, when the stone is rolled away, and we step out as a new creation.
Christ gave us each other as witnesses to the resurrection power expressed in each of us. Christ did not come to judge the world, and neither did we.
We exist to speak Life, to live together with grace, each one of us a unique part of the healing stories God is telling, generation to generation. We are blessed to believe that what was spoken by the Lord is coming true, moment by moment, and that nothing is impossible for God. We all fall short, but the grace of the Living Christ is mindful of us, his mercies new each day.
FOR US. Not against us. WITH us, to free us from sin and death. It’s both exciting and humbling. His Passion Healing Team exists to contend with you, no matter how much discouragement, fear, or pain you feel, there is nothing too big, and nothing too small for Jesus.
“I came thinking we’d pray for some people and it would be nice or whatever, and then I ended up with a big effect in myself!”
– Aaron, age 76

What to Expect During Healing Time
Upon entering New Life, a greeter will set you up with a team in the Sanctuary. After you have received prayer, it is a time to rest, “soaking”, and taking in the atmosphere. We ask that conversations be kept to a minimum.
The teams usually have 2-4 pray-ers, with one being the leader, who will do most of the talking. We are trained to listen to you, to hear what you would like prayer for, as well as to listen and observe what the Spirit is doing. We invite you to relax, and receive, and observe sensations and feelings. It’s best to refrain from actually praying for yourself. As much as possible, let your mind be quiet. You are here for a reason, and it is safe to release and receive, without feeling self conscious. Our only intention is that you would feel the Love of God and be healed in Jesus name.
As the team prays, there may be periods of silence, as well as times the prayer leader will check in and ask you how you are feeling. You may feel things, you may not. Healing is natural for you, and we love to hear whatever you are experiencing. When the prayer is complete, the leader will invite you to remain in the sanctuary and soak, to take communion, to sit or lay in the Heartspace, or to just enjoy the art and the atmosphere. You are welcome here and we hope you are blessed.
