1 Thessalonians 5:17 tells us to "Pray without ceasing", and James 5:13 says, "Is any one of you in trouble? He (or she) should pray".
At Forest Brook, we believe in the power of prayer. Prayer is available to anyone in our church that is needing or wanting it. Here are a few of the ways you can receive prayer at our church:
- Elders praying over the sick (The elders are always available to come to your home or pray over you at the church if you are sick.)
Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. James 5:14
- Prayer walks/house calls for prayer (If you are needing prayer for a particular private issue, or there is a need for prayer in your home or neighbourhood, a team is always ready to do so.)
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6
- Monthly Sunday evening prayer meetings (the first Sunday evening of every month, we meet to pray for our church and for anyone who comes needing prayer about a particular issue)
Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them. Matthew 18:19-20
- Prayer teams after the service (There are always people at the front who will pray with you about whatever you are needing prayer for.)
Confess your sins to each another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16
