Days of Healing Prayer provide opportunities to hear teachings on prayer and to receive healing prayer. These Saturdays dedicated to prayer are offered for St. Michael’s parishioners as well as the wider community, as an outreach, sharing the healing power of God’s love poured out through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. Typically, two Days of Healing Prayer are offered every year. Some Days of Healing Prayer have featured special speakers as well, including Norma Dearing, Rick Belser, Barbara Shlemon Ryan, Nigel Mumford, and Joanne Ellison.
Our next Day of Healing Prayer will be Saturday, March 18, 2017.
9:00 am – 2:45 pm
Renewing the Mind: Neuroscience and the Power of Prayer
And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:7
We all live in the midst of storms. We don’t have to look very far to see them raging all around us. Often the storms on the outside of us can become the storms on the inside. The chaos that rages out in the world can make its way within in such a way that we become the very extension of that chaos. Even after the storm has subsided, it can still linger within us in the patterns of our minds and in reoccurring emotions. Fortunately, Jesus has a way of entering into our darkest times and transforming them. He has bound his life to humanity and seeks to bear the full weight of the storm with us and for us.
In our time together we will look at methods of calming the chaos and ways of allowing Jesus to speak his peace into our minds and our hearts. This transcendent peace flows through spiritual practices in the Christian tradition. Remarkably, there is an increasing link between these practices and recent neuroscience. Ultimately, we will look at how the mind and heart build patterns of pain, anxiety and sin, but how through the transformative power of the Holy Spirit, we can bring thoughts captive under Christ as he becomes our hope and safety amidst the storm.
