What to expect at the SRC Prayer Service
Reverent, expressive worship. Prayer is first and foremost about paying attention to God, honoring Him by giving Him the glory that is due to Him. Because God lives in the praises of His people, worship brings God’s healing and delivering power. Each person has freedom to worship in his or her own way, whether that is quiet contemplation or exuberant rejoicing with hands lifted high as a sign of surrender and blessing. Whatever the expression, there is liberty. (Psa 22:3; 29:2; 47:1; 63:4; 134:2; 2 Cor 3:17; 1 Tim 2:8)
Earnest, intense intercession. Prayer is also about taking needs to God on the behalf of others. Committed people sincerely pray in confidence for the needs of others, uniting their faith to produce wonderful results. Prayer needs are often shared on cards and distributed to those who want to intercede for those needs. Individuals come together in small groups to join their prayers in agreement for those specific needs. (Neh 1:4-11; Acts 4:24; 2 Cor 1:11; Eph 6:18; Phil 1:19; Jas 5:14-16)
Dynamic, relevant teaching. Prayer grows when it is informed by God’s Word. The Scriptures, when illuminated by the Holy Spirit, teach us how to pray most effectively. You can expect faith-building teaching that will energize your prayers and feed your spirit. This often occurs immediately after worship and before we break into small groups to pray. (Psa 18:28; 119:105; Matt 6:10; John 14:26; 16:12-16; Rom 10:17; 1 John 5:14)
Flexible, discerning awareness. Prayer is two-way communication. It is as much about listening as it is speaking. We need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s guidance and willing to change course at His discretion. Sometimes the Holy Spirit may interrupt our patterns and speak to us in a fresh way, whether through prophecy or words of encouragement. We are at His disposal and seek to stay in sync with His leading. (Rom 8:14, 26-27; 12:3-8; 1 Cor 2:13; 12:4-11; Gal 5:16-25)

The Prayer Room at SRC facilitates a release of God’s healing power (Acts 4:30) by the Healing Ministry. This power is available to all individuals desirous of healing, whether in spirit, mind or body, who are open to all the ways the Lord can heal (i.e. medically, surgically, gradually or instantaneously)
The Healing Ministry believes that the Lord heals today. We have witnessed healing in answer to prayer. We provide confidential prayer in a private setting for the healing of physical, emotional, or relational needs. We are available on most Tuesday evenings by appointment only.
If you have a specific healing need, email to make an appointment for prayer.
