Have you ever had a moment where you just weren’t sure what to do, or you were overwhelmed by your circumstances, and someone said, “Can I pray for you?” It’s a simple act, but so often exactly what you need – someone to simultaneously show that they care about you and help you create a space where you can release whatever you’re experiencing and feeling to God.
That’s what the after-service prayer team is all about: having caring individuals in place after the service to pray for anyone who is going through a rough time, needs guidance, or wants to respond in some way to the worship service.
Right now, we’re looking to add folks to the ASP team, and I’d like to invite you to consider joining. If you’ve gone up for prayer in the past and would like to play that role in someone else’s life, or you would just like to make yourself available to serve others, this is a great way to do so. It’s not a significant time commitment, but you could make a significant difference in someone’s day, and it’s an honor to be there for someone at a potentially crucial moment.
This Sunday, November 2nd, 2-4pm, we’re having an ASP training in the fellowship hall. We’ll go over things like listening well, etiquette, sensitivity, confidentiality, and ideas for how you might pray for someone. Even if you’re not sure about joining the team, go ahead and come out to the training – that’ll be the best way to find out!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there!
