Soaking Prayer: Tuesday, February 19, 6:45- 7:15 PM, Markley Chapel
Like a gentle shower of rain, slowly saturating the soil with life giving water, you will be saturated with the love of God as you rest in his presence. This is a time to sit in silence and be with God while soothing music plays in the background of our softly lit chapel. Sit in peace. If you desire you may write down specific prayer requests so that members of The International Order of St. Luke the Physician Healing Prayer Ministry can pray silently for you at that time. Your prayers will be kept in confidence. No reservations are needed - just drop in from 6:45 PM - 7:15 PM every third Tuesday after the healing service. Questions? Contact Nina Brooks at NinaLBrooks@gmail.com or 256.289.6124.
