NEW Free to Fly Women’s Prayer Team

6:20-8:00p.m. 2nd & 4th Wednesdays, led by the Emerge Prayer Team
Education Building Room 112 until October, the meeting in the Parlor

Are you stuck? Are you hurting? Are you feeling lost or empty? Are you feeling any spiritual, mental, emotional, or physical sickness? Is something holding you back in your walk with God? Do you want to grow closer in your relationship with Jesus? Do you need guidance in your life? Do you need faith to endure or persevere? Do you want to experience God’s love in a deeper way? Do you have past or present traumas that you are facing alone? Is shame oppressing you? Are you depressed or hopeless? Do you desire greater freedom? 

The Emerge Prayer Team would like to love and pray for women seeking to gain greater healing and freedom in Christ in any area of their lives. We are called to walk by faith and to pray for each other (James 5:13) and to bear each other’s burdens and in that way to fulfill the law of Christ (Gal 6:2). We believe that when we pray, God hears us and that He responds (2 Chron 7:14). He is delighted when we pray. Praying opens doors for us to understand and experience God’s great love and power for those who believe (Eph 1:19).

We will take personal prayer requests and pray corporately or one-on-one if needed. The fourth Wednesday of each month, we will have a special prayer focus to help our women grow in prayer. All prayer is confidential. Please contact Jamie Mitchell at 2bcEmerge@gmail.com for questions, to refer anyone for prayer, to submit a confidential prayer request, or if you want to let us know that you are coming. Emerge and pray with us! We are here to serve you as the body of Christ, through His Spirit and in His Name.

Ongoing Prayer Opportunities

Let’s emerge as women of prayer! One of the ways we love and serve each other is through prayer. Through prayer, we grow closer to God and we grow closer to each other. God has told us to be like little children and to depend on Him whole heartedly. That is not always easy when everything else tells us to depend on ourselves or others. We need encouragement from the scriptures and each other to pray as our first resort, not our last. When we do stop, engage our faith, and pray, things happen and we are changed. God shows Himself strong on our behalf and we stand in awe of Him. Join us in the ongoing prayer opportunities so we will grow and heal together in prayer.

Emerge Prayer Team

Emerge leadership is developing and training an Emerge Prayer Team that will be available to pray with women at Emerge Events as well as offer prayer, encouragement, and a listening ear on a one-on-one basis, as needed.
