Prayer ministry is the joining in prayer with other people, to be open to the Lord’s blessing, guidance, strengthening, wisdom and healing. It is being open to any way the Lord might wish to meet with those being prayed with or for.
At South West Baptist Church, prayer ministry is placed alongside other ministries, particularly pastoral work and counselling. People often require both care and prayer. Prayer ministry involves hearing from God through words of knowledge, specific scripture verses that may be for the person and the discerning of spirits.
