Feel God’s healing presence in your life!
Healing can take many forms. It can come as a feeling of peace. Healing can consist of the strength to manage a situation. It can also take the form of the physical healing of a malady. Christians believe that God is a Good Physician who attends to all of our hurts and our pains.
This service of prayer and healing offers the opportunity to feel God’s presence in our lives. It helps us find confidence that “we’re in God’s good hands,” says Pastor Bill Wong, interim minister at PEACE Lutheran Church.
Participants will have the opportunity to receive anointing with oil and to pray at the church altar, if they choose. Most importantly, those attending can feel God’s presence in their lives.
There is no charge for the service, and all are welcome.
“This won’t be a preaching service,” says Bill Wong. “We offer prayers, singing and a time to contemplate… It’s a reminder that God wants to be a part of our lives and offers healing in a variety of ways.”
He cited the Danish philosopher and theologian, Soren Kierkegaard, who was raised Lutheran and who wrote, “The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.”
Anointing with oil is an ancient sign of God’s favor, used to indicate a new king and to comfort the sick and dying.
This healing service offers the “confidence God will do something to help me get through this,” Wong said. “Ask, and see what happens.”
