Prayer – True, whole prayer is nothing but love. – St. Augustine
At Christ the King we understand that prayer comes in all forms but the essence is based on the love of God and communing with Him. Below are a couple of opportunities to experience prayer and the love of God. Contact Jadi Meyer for more information.

Resting & Healing Prayer Ministry
Beginning in March Resting & Healing Prayer will switch to the 1st Tuesday of the month, at 8:30am in the CTK Student Center. There is a deep need in every one of us to be close to God. To experience God's presence is to rest in His love rather than to “strive” in prayer. As we wait expectantly in the Lord, often the Holy Spirit reveals more of God's love for us and renews and repairs damaged areas of our lives. There is no right or wrong thing to do, but a time to quiet down, hear His voice, and be drawn deeper into intimacy with God. During our time of resting prayer you may come forward for Personal Healing Prayer. For more information about Resting & Healing Prayer contact Jadi Meyer.
Simply stated, it is encouraging a person to discover and expose what he believes that is a falsehood; and then encouraging him to have an encounter with Jesus Christ through prayer, thus allowing the Lord to reveal His truth to the wounded person's heart and mind. It is not about advice giving, diagnosing problems, or sharing opinions or insight. It is about allowing a person to have a personal encounter with the Lord Jesus in the midst of emotional pain. This is why Theophostic Prayer Ministry can be helpful for emotionally wounded people—the process opens the way for the Holy Spirit to replace their lies and pain with truth and peace. Theophostic simply means “God's Light.” “I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called” (Ephesians 1:18 NLT). “When the saints pray that they may be taught, enlightened, and sanctified by God, by this very act they declare that they cannot obtain those things which they ask of God from their own natural powers” (slightly reworded from The Book of Concord, FC II.15).
