Missio Lux Highlight

Becoming a Healing Prayer Minister with Missio Lux is a very big commitment. It involves 8 months of weekly training, along with 3 weekend trainings, weekly homework challenges and memorization of Scriptures, as well as weekly ongoing participation after the training is complete.

Yet, despite the challenge of the commitment, so many people want to be part of the Healing Prayer Team. They are drawn by a few things:

the community on the team
the specific mission to pray for people to become free
the amazing passion for the Lord that people on the HP team carry

Tuesday night we commissioned the second training class.

It was amazing. The existing team prayed over the new team, so everyone was prayed for 13 times!

I left that night feeling like a new Mom giving birth. The pain of the training (at times) was quickly forgotten by seeing the new baby: the Commissioned Healing Prayer Ministers.

When I was driving home, I sensed the Lord's celebration too. It seems he was saying, "We did it! Isn't it exciting to see what took place." I felt his smile of approval on me.

Now, we look ahead to see how God is going to use this team. We meet monthly on the 4th Tuesday of the month at Pine Lake Covenant at 7 p.m. We exist to serve our whole community; to be a community resource so that everyone on the Eastside of Seattle can experience the freedom and hope Jesus offers through being prayed for and receiving healing.

We are also ready to move out in anyway that we feel directed to go. I can't wait to see where we will be a year from today! Let's tell those stories along the way.
