What is Prayer Ministry like at this church?
At Palo Alto Vineyard Church, we value praying for others in a very down-to-earth, no-hype way. We value being able to hear and discern the voice of God, and we desire to empower others to do this too. We pray for healing from sickness, spiritual oppression, emotional wounding, and just general concerns of life. Not all of us are professionally-trained therapists, but we have great respect for the field and try to incorporate as much wisdom and knowledge from therapeutic values into our prayer sessions. Our overall goal when we pray is to speak God's heart, all done in a spirit of love. Our Prayer Ministry department is co-led by Terence & Suzanne Magno. Terence is a volunteer leader and Suzanne is on staff as Director of Worship & Administration.
Our Prayer Ministry Team is trained and ready to pray for you! Since we do not meet in person right now, we welcome anyone who needs prayer to send us an email, and we will make a prayer appointment so we can pray for you over Zoom. Prayer appointments are designed to be a shorter prayer session of approximately 30 minutes long. All are welcome to receive prayer during this time. Contact us at .
Soaking Prayer Sessions
Soaking prayer is an extended time of prayer, where people inside and outside of the church are welcome to come for an intentional time of listening to God and soaking in His presence. Trained teams pray for individuals and/or couples for about an hour, depending on the need. We offer prayers for physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Right now, we are continuing to have Soaking Prayer on Zoom. Contact our Soaking Prayer Leader with questions or to sign-up.
