Morning Healing Services
Join us in the Chapel every Wednesday at 10:00am for a Healing Service with Holy Eucharist.
Evening Healing Services
This service is held regularly on the last Wednesday of the month at 6:30 in Johnson Hall.
We invite you to join us on the last Wednesday of the month, as we come into God’s presence and seek healing in mind, body and spirit. The service will include a homily on the ministry of healing, beautiful and peaceful music, and prayers for healing with the laying on of hands and anointing with holy oil for those who desire it. This non-Eucharistic service will last about an hour.
Frequently Asked Questions about our Healing Services
1. How will the prayer time work?
The prayer teams of one priest and one lay minister will stand around the room, and if you’d like prayer, simply walk up to them. They will ask you quietly if you’d like to share anything about your prayer request. You can share whatever you are comfortable telling them. If you would just like general prayer or are not comfortable sharing your request, that is fine. If you like, the priest will anoint your forehead with oil, and the ministers will lay a hand on your head or shoulder as they pray for you. Music will continue quietly in the background during this time of corporate prayer.
2. Do I need to have a serious illness in order to receive prayer?
We invite anyone who desires prayer for healing to come to the service, whether you are dealing with a life-threatening illness or a less serious issue. We pray not only for healing of the body but also for healing of mind and spirit, so we also encourage you to come for healing of emotional or relational brokenness as well.
2. Can I come forward for prayer on behalf of someone else?
Yes, you can request prayer for a loved one who is need of healing and not present at the service.
3. Is my prayer request confidential?
Yes, your requests will be kept confidential.
4. Can I come even if I don’t want to receive healing prayer?
Receiving prayer from a prayer team is voluntary. You are welcome to come and simply sit during the prayer time, allowing God to minister to you through music and prayer.
5. Can I bring other people up with me to pray for me?
We encourage friends and family members to come forward and join in praying for your needs.
Please call the church!
The church would like to be notified whenever you or a loved one is admitted to the hospital. Although the hospital admission clerks may ask specific questions about your religious preference, they will NOT notify St. George’s to let us know you are there. Governmental regulations (HIPPA) prohibit release of health information to third parties. Please call us as soon as possible at (615) 385-2150 to notify us of your hospital name and room number. If it’s an emergency or after office hours, you can still call this number and speak with a live person who will contact the priest on duty.
