As humans, we all have hopes and hurts, fears and dreams, and we release them to God. Throughout our lives, we find ourselves in different places on our journey with God: whether it is rejoicing, feeling a sense of loss and loneliness, or simply trying to find our way, we know that prayer is our invitation to communicate with God.
"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”
The FPCB community is invited to participate in a tangible, hands-on “Healing Prayer Project.” Over 1700 cloth streamers will be strung on railings and lattices at 10 entrances and displays around the church through the month of June. “One of the most popular stations at Prayer Is… is the Prayer Wall,” said Rev. Beth Case, pastor for Congregational Life and Care (CLC). “This is a new version of the prayer wall, taken outside.”
All ages are invited to write prayers of loss, joy, sorrow, pain, encouragement, hope, grief, etc. on the cloth prayer strips. There will be bins containing markers and hard surface clip boards at each location for your writing. These strips will be made into a wall hanging, representing branches of a tree, with Jesus as the trunk.
“We hope people would find healing. God hears your prayers and whatever they are, let’s share them with the community,” said Rev. Case.
Expect and allow the Holy Spirit to transform us through praying together. A closing Prayer Service of Healing will be offered on July 17.
Prayer Ministries, Mission and Outreach, Youth and Adult Discipleship, the Quilting Prayer Ministry and Emotional Wellness Ministry offer this opportunity for you to share your prayers for the community of Faith at FPCB.
