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. James 5: 14-16 (NRSV)
Join us the first Sunday in July our focus in worship will be on God’s power for healing and wholeness in our lives. First Presbyterian’s occasional service of Healing and Wholeness reminds us that God wants us to be whole in every area of our lives. Jesus came to deliver people from the despair of our sin-sickness AND he demonstrated that reality by supernatural power and signs of healing on many occasions. Then he left his church with that power to heal. As Christians, we know that God is still healing our brokenness – in many places of our bodies, relationships and lives. So we are bold to ask God for healing according to James 5:14-16. If you have any need for healing in your life, be bold to ask God for it, and let others join you in the asking during communion today at one of the stations for healing prayer.
