Prayer

The entire Palmwood Church family believes in the power of prayer. In a world where even many Christian congregations today struggle with the idea of God’s supernatural intervention in people’s lives, we believe and have seen Him do awesome things in answer to prayer.  Because of this, prayer is a vital part of our daily lives and of our process of discipling people in the Christian life.  We practice intercessory prayer, praying on behalf of our city, our specific neighbors, and those the Lord brings to us. And prayer is a planned foundation to our regular worship together.

“Is anyone among you suffering?  Let him pray.  Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise.  Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.  And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up.  And if he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.  Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”  (James 5:13-16, ESV)
