Shalom prayer

20 Apr

Shalom prayer for healing and wholeness and peaceFirst Sunday of each month

6.30-7.30pm, St Paul’s Church, Mollison Drive

The Hebrew word shalom is understood around the world to mean “peace.” However, “peace” is only one small part of the meaning.

Hebrew words go beyond their spoken pronunciation. Each Hebrew word conveys feeling, intent and emotion. Shalom is more then just simply peace; it is a complete peace. It is a feeling of contentment, completeness, wholeness, healing, well being and harmony. The shalom of God is His desire to restore and heal all things. It is a holistic view of the person so that they live the abundant life that Jesus promises (John 10:10).

In the Bible, the word shalom refers to a blessing, a manifestation of divine grace.

On the first Sunday evening of the month we would like to offer an opportunity to pray with and for those who are unwell, in distress or experiencing suffering in a personal, financial or emotional way. Whether you are struggling yourself, or know others who are, or would like to come and pray  we would love you to join us. This is about us as a community interceding for people and asking for God’s shalom.

We will come together for an hour to focus on God’s shalom; to create a space to pray and worship and to offer prayer ministry.

Do come and be prayed for if you are in need of God’s shalom at this time. Or to offer your prayers for others you know.
