Church of the Resurrection

Immanuel Prayer

We are very excited to offer a powerful and effective style of prayer called Immanuel. Immanuel Prayer is a specific style of healing prayer that focuses on connecting an individual with the presence of Jesus. The primary goal of Immanuel Prayer is to remove the barriers to intimacy and increase our capacity to connect with the interactive presence of Jesus, the God who is with us. It is informed by an understanding of how the brain develops the capacity for relationship and how painful experiences are processed.

At Resurrection we have a number of prayer ministers who have been trained as facilitators of Immanuel Prayer and are involved in ongoing training and supervision. Their role is to guide you into an interaction with Jesus that directly addresses difficult life issues while keeping the focus on developing a deeper relationship with him. They are also trained to help when there is difficulty connecting with God.

In this style, the prayer minister does not hear from God for you or offer any specific content such as words of knowledge or advice or instruction. All the input will come directly from Jesus through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, with the prayer minister guiding, supporting, and troubleshooting that interactive connection.

We are eager to pray for you in this way because we know that Jesus himself is the great healer, truth parent, companion and guide, and that intimate relationship with Him is our adequate source of Life and Joy.
