Day of Healing Prayer
Days of Healing Prayer provide opportunities to hear teachings on prayer and to receive healing prayer. These Saturdays dedicated to prayer are offered for St. Michael’s parishioners as well as the wider community, as an outreach, sharing the healing power of God’s love poured out through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. Typically, two Days of Healing Prayer are offered every year. Some Days of Healing Prayer have featured special speakers as well, including Norma Dearing, Rick Belser, Barbara Shlemon Ryan, Nigel Mumford, and Joanne Ellison.

Healing Through Worship: The Only Balm for Brokenness: Worship of the Cruciform God.
Featured Speaker: The Rev. Dr. Martha Giltinan, Trinity School for Ministry
To bow before God as the only One worthy of our worship is to begin the most fundamental rehabilitation program of the Christian life. Human beings, made in the image of the Triune God were made for communion with God and will find nothing but sickness unto death outside of that communion. As Augustine wrote so poignantly; “our hearts are restless, and they will find no rest until they rest in thee.” On this day, discover God’s love and healing grace in a fresh way as we come before Him in worship.
With ministry experience in world mission, the parish, and the academic community, Martha has encountered a wide variety of human brokenness and has discovered that it is in the worship of God that we find the deepest healing of all. Martha has served with the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India, lived for 6 months with an ecumenical monastic community in Areuse Switzerland, and has served in a variety of parish settings including as the rector of St. Andrews Ayer, MA from 1991-2001. With degrees from Wheaton College, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Virginia Theological Seminary, and Trinity School for Ministry, she has served as the assistant professor for pastoral theology at Trinity School for Ministry from 2005 to the present. Today she will give two presentations and will then join the Prayer Ministers we worship the Living God and receive His healing grace.
The Lord is near to the broken hearted and saves the crushed in spirit. ~ Psalm 34:18
