Healing was an integral part of Jesus’ ministry that the church is called to continue as one dimension of our concern for the wholeness of people in body, mind, and spirit. The vital element of a service for wholeness is prayer: prayer of thanksgiving for God’s promise of wholeness and prayer of intercession for those needing healing. These prayers are enacted by anointing with oil and the laying on of hands. All are welcome to the Service of Wholeness with the recognition that neither our earnestness, skill, nor faith enable healing; healing is the gracious gift of God.
