Q: How often do you pray for and see physical healing?
Very often! Come for prayer for any need. Most people are pursuing emotional and spiritual growth, freedom or healing. Many people come NOT looking for physical healing but, in the midst of experiencing God's goodness, they do experience un-expected physical relief! Our response surveys indicate that over 40% report relief from physical ailments that they DIDN’T even come to pray for! Wow!!
We love to pray with anyone going through sickness or physical pain. Often friends battling cancer will come weekly to our Wednesday 12 - 1 drop in prayer and communion space. Though we would never “guarantee” physical healing, we do know how to help you enter into the Presence of the Great Healer. Jesus is our heartbeat and in knowing His heart, healing flows. We focus on the ONE true healer and praise Him for all the ways He brings healing into the world: through medicine, doctors, medical professionals, nutritionists, exercise and of course, through His powerful healing hand. It is our Joy to see God move in powerful, sometimes unexpected ways in every realm: spiritual, emotional, physical, eternal, natural. We hear stories of God’s healing every day!
Q.) Where do I go once I arrive?
If you have found 135 W. Olmos Dr. - Enter on the East side by the long narrow parking lot. Personal prayer path sessions usually take place in the single story building on the North side of the property.
Drop-in prayer spaces and classes usually take place in the 2 story building downstairs in the Sanctuary.
