Healing Prayer Service
James 5: 13-15 clearly states the church is to pray for those who are sick and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord and the prayers offered in faith will make the sick person well. We sometimes forget that the church can bring healing of body, mind and spirit through the power of prayer. And if we are to continue Jesus ministry of healing we should not neglect the ministry of healing prayer. It is in this spirit we offer a HEALING PRAYER SERVICE Sunday April 17th at 5:00 .M. in Slaton Chapel at the downtown location. Dr. Mike Powers and LaVerne Slone , a long-time member of Margaret Therkelsen’s prayer group, are leading this service. All are welcomed who are seeking healing of body, mind or spirit.
