Free to Fly Prayer Ministry

Equips women to emphasize and experience prayer corporately, one-on-one, during events and special visits.

The Vision: 

Free to Fly Prayer ministry is a Spirit-led ministry utilizing prayer to help individuals become empowered, equipped, and enabled in the abundant life Christ promises through our identification with His death and resurrection.

    The Mission:

    Free to Fly Prayer ministry inspires faith, hope, and love through prayer and ministry tools that focus on three objectives which include: listening to an individual’s heart and story, helping connect their story to Christ’s story, and praying for increased freedom through the power of a revived relationship with the Godhead.

    Dear Prayer Recipient,

    As prayer ministers, we are passionate about finding freedom and wholeness in Christ.  We are excited to meet you and encourage you in your healing journey through ministry and prayer. Jesus is your Savior, but He ALSO wants you to know Him as Deliverer, Healer and Restorer. He desires to co-labor with you through a faith-filled adventure of maturing and growing in personal deliverance, healing and restoration in Him.

    Your prayer session will last two hours. During that time, we will listen to your heart and story, help you connect your story to Jesus’ story, and pray for increased freedom through repentance and faith, forgiveness, renouncing, authority, and blessing. All content within the ministry session will be held in confidence. We ask that you fill out our Prayer Ministry Questionnaire and sign the Prayer Ministry Agreement and return it via mail (Second Baptist Church c/o Emerge Prayer Ministry, 9614 River Rd., Richmond, VA 23229) or email (emergefreetofly@gmail.com).  Upon review, a prayer minister will contact you to schedule a prayer appointment through return email.

    Free to Fly Prayer ministry is NOT counseling but rather a Spirit-led ministry utilizing prayer to help individuals become empowered, equipped, and enabled to walk in the abundant life Christ promises through identification with His death and resurrection. Experiencing freedom from any spiritual bondage requires a willingness to be open and honest, a commitment to trust in the Lord and His truth, and a deep desire to be free. If the Son sets you free, you are free indeed (John 8:36).  Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17). We look forward to praying with you!

    Grace and peace to you through our Lord Jesus Christ,

    Emerge Prayer Team
