God Moving At Maranatha
Moving Forward in Prayer
by Deborah Morgante, Director of Prayer Ministries
God is doing exciting things in our prayer ministry! Years ago Maranatha identified prayer as a core value. Over the last several months, many of our hopes in the area of prayer have become realities.
Prayer for Sunday Worship: For the last several months, a team of intercessors has been praying every Thursday evening and Sunday morning for our worship teams, the worship services and all those involved. We are praying that God would move mightily to encounter, encourage, and empower us to live out His Word with confidence!
Prayer for our Worship Teams: Pairs of intercessors have also been assigned to each worship team to pray for and support those teams, as well as the tech teams that serve along with them.
Training in Prayer: Twelve people from Maranatha are currently participating in a 9-week Prayer Ministry Training course through the PRMI (Dunamis) ministry alongside a team from Bethel Community Church in Edmonton. If this training resonates with our community, we hope is to offer the course again in the future for others who have a heart to see people walk in the freedom and healing of Jesus.
Prayer Ministry: Soon we will be offering personal prayer at the church for anyone who would like to come and be prayed for during the week between 11:30am-1:30pm Tuesday through Friday. None of us can walk through the struggles of life, let alone fight the ever-increasing darkness, pressures, and confusion of this age on our own—we need each other and the power of the Holy Spirit in us so we can strengthen and encourage one another daily in Him (1 Thess. 5:11, Heb. 3:13). Watch the bulletin for more details about how to avail yourself of this opportunity.
The Prayer Chain: Over 50 people are eager to pray for any needs you may have. We encourage you to reach out. Please send your prayer requests to Barb Huiskamp at email@example.com.
