Healing Prayer Ministry Mission Statement

With firm faith in the transforming love of God in Jesus Christ and the awesome power of the Holy Spirit, we offer prayers for healing in body, mind, and spirit to all who seek wholeness and grace for themselves or others. We believe Jesus works through our presence, our prayers and our faith to manifest God’s divine love to all who thirst for healing, hope, comfort and reconciliation.

Healing Prayers on Sundays

On the first Sunday of the month, Holy Comforter offers Healing Prayers immediately following the 9:30 a.m. Zoom Worship Service, on a separate Zoom link. Anyone wishing for healing prayers—whether for yourself or for another or for our hurting world—is invited to click on the Healing Prayer link in the chat box, and you will be in a Zoom waiting room until your time to be prayed for. You need only say as much as you wish, and anything said will be held in confidence.

The Healing Ministry is led by Ms. Alexandra MacCracken and includes a team of lay healers who have gone through intentional training and formation. For more information contact Alexandra MacCracken.
