Healing Ministry

James 5:13-15

The Prayer of Faith

Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven.

We believe that when we pray, the Lord hears our prayers, and answers us through the grace and power of the Holy Spirit. We believe that healing is about wholeness of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual state, as individuals and as a community.

The laying on of hands, by both ordained clergy and lay people, is offered as part of our 10am Parish Communion service every other month. In the intervening month there is opportunity for prayer for healing in the chapel.
