Care Ministry

“Prayer first, prayer always!” is one of our core values. We are a people who pray and know the power of prayer. Prayer invites us into a very intimate relationship with God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In this relationship we learn, as God’s children, to express our hopes, needs, and desires to a loving God and to listen for God’s instruction, gifts, and guidance (e.g., Luke 11:2-4; John 15:16; 1 Peter 5:7; Philippians 4:4-7). Through prayer, we also experience the deep transformational power of the Holy Spirit. Through intercession for the needs of others, we learn to see the potential God sees in them. Through healing prayer, our joy increases as we learn to persevere and when we see God move in power in healing. Through listening prayer, we learn to discern God’s voice through His Word, Holy Spirit, people, and circumstances.

Immanuel Approach Prayer

The Bible tells us we were created to be in a deep intimate relationship with God where we don’t just talk to God, but we hear from Him.  This deep intimate relationship was designed so we wouldn’t just talk about our Abba’s love, we would experience His love.  While there are many different ways to pray, the Immanuel Approach to healing prayer ministry is designed to help us deepen our relationship with Jesus our Immanuel who is the Author and Giver of Life. 

Immanuel Prayer is a prayer ministry whose primary goal is to assist people in connecting with God as well as helping them to enjoy being with Him. Immanuel Prayer is not professional counseling, deliverance, or prophetic ministry.  Immanuel means “God with us” and this promise is the foundation for all we do in Immanuel Prayer.  Immanuel Approach Prayer Ministry strives to help people connect personally, not just theoretically, with Jesus who is our Immanuel.  Through this connection with Immanuel we are able to deepen our intimacy with Jesus who comes to permanently resolve past pain and provide God’s ongoing discerning guidance in our lives.  We invite you to join this powerful prayer ministry.  If you are longing for a deeper prayer life that enables us to connect with Jesus who not only made the heavens and the earth, but who also calms the storms and if you want to experience the love of God in prayer, we invite you to click on the Learn More button or contact Pastor Susan Westland for more information at 801-255-8181 or susan@gslc.net.
