In prayer, we come before God, as individuals or as a group, to praise him for who he is, confess our sins, thank him for his gifts and to request his help.
At All Angels’ we have an active prayer ministry which helps us each grow in our own faith and support the needs of those in our community. We believe Christ is present and active in our lives and in our communities and that he both hears and responds to our prayers.
Healing Prayer Teams
We are honored to gather with you to pray for individuals seeking physical, emotional, or spiritual healing. Healing Prayer is a time of sustained prayer provided by a team of two or more prayer team members on behalf of a person in need. During this time, we hear the person’s request and ask for God’s guidance on how and what to pray. Prayer team members are available for brief prayer at the morning service on the third Sunday of each month and appointments for longer healing prayer sessions can be made by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
We meet Sunday mornings to pray in a way that emphasizes listening and being present to God, to each other and to our deepest selves. We often use Scripture, but also images and silence to help us listen to God’s voice and simply rest in God’s presence. We believe that the prayer of this small group supports the active life and ministries of All Angels’. Many participants also find the prayer time to be a meaningful way to prepare for our Sunday Eucharist.
We would love to have you join us and see for yourself what this kind of prayer is like in a group. We meet Sunday mornings, 9:00-9:40am. All are welcome! No prior experience necessary. Contact Jen Knight to get involved, email@example.com or 732-648-7297.
We pray for others via intercessory prayer in which we come before God to intercede – or intervene – on behalf of someone else. Our Intercessory team meets on Sunday mornings at 9:20am in the antesacristy (adjacent to the sanctuary, near the back stairwell) to pray on behalf of the approaching worship services and those gathering to worship. Teams also meet during Vestry and Search Committee meetings to intercede as our leaders and decision makers labor on behalf of the community. Contact Amy Newman to get involved at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Meals Ministry provides in-home meals to parishoners in need — often families welcoming a new baby or those recovering from surgery. Home-cooked meals are of course enjoyed, but volunteers are also welcome to provide delivery or prepared meals through services like Fresh Direct. There’s a way for anyone to participate! Those who join the Meals Ministry team get an email notifying them of new registries and are invited to schedule a date to provide a meal. The Meals Ministry is a great way for people to provide a hugely appreciated service through relatively little time commitment! Email Kerry at email@example.com to join the team or request meals.
