11am – 1pm and 7pm – 9pm



The Hebrew month of Av has arrived and it is a time of preparation.  There seems to be a lot of transition for many people.  It is a time to keep our ears open to what God is saying to our hearts.  As we align with God, He will help us cross our thresholds.



People offered feedback from our last Open Hours.

Q:  How was your experience today? 

“Very peaceful.”

“It was really good and calming! They are really good at explaining God’s message”


“Felt more peace when I left.”

“Good to express my feelings freely and get a prayer.”

“Refreshing – Encouraging – A blessing”


Q:  What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”

“God gave me tremendous peace and confirmation.”

“He made me feel peace and optimism”

“Reminds me of all the times God was with me in my times of struggle”

“God gave me some peace.”

“He let me take off some stress and pains.”

“God confirmed some things & brought encouragement & more comfort.”


In the same Open Hours, we had someone come in for prayer about trying to get off of pain medication long after the surgery.  Later, there were two conversations during “Recap” at the end of the evening about families that are dealing with kids who struggle with addiction to pain killers.  The media describes high achieving successful people who take drugs to rev up for their busy work days and later take different drugs to get to sleep.  Medications are more available for people than ever before.  God is giving people His healing power to walk victoriously out of addictive medication cycles.  As this happens, they pray with power and authority and the confidence that says, “If He healed me, He can heal you.”  God is raising up people with this authority to break the cycles that are in every socioeconomic level of society.  He is already preparing the answer for what He knows people will be asking Him for in the coming days.


“It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer, and while they are still speaking, I will hear.” Isaiah 65:24



God gives strength to the weary.  And jury duty to some of our team members. Please pray for God’s supernatural ability to nudge the team members to minister for all those He knows will be coming tomorrow.  And grace for anyone who might have to wait for a prayer team availability.



Thank you to all who came last week.  Our morning team got stretched by the number of people coming for prayer.  Our evening team ended early. The Lord’s reward to each of you matches the commitment it takes to come ready to pray.  Thank you for your faithfulness.  Your faithfulness is making you all more like Jesus.  His faithfulness is our shield and buckler.  Your faithfulness brings unity, strength and joy to the body of Christ. Thank you! Please take a few minutes to pray with us (from wherever you are as you read this) for all that God will be doing during Open Hours tomorrow.


Let heaven come down,
