Healing Prayer Ministry

Opportunities to Receive Prayer


An Invitation to Prayer

At Third Church we believe that healing is an expression of the gospel – knowing that Christ went to the cross so that we could be saved, healed and set free. We have over 80 prayer ministers who are trained and ready to serve you as you seek God for healing in your life. As we pray we promise to keep confidences, create a place of safety for you on your journey, listen to you and to the Lord, and to believe that God longs to bring His healing and restoration in your life. We consider it such an honor to come alongside you in prayer.

Have you been blessed through prayer? Would you be willing to share your story to encourage others?

About Our Healing Prayer Ministry


• Keep confidences
• Be a safe place
• Listen to you and listen to God
• Ask that God will reveal His heart to you
• Believe that God heals and restores
• Thank God for what He is doing.


• We believe God forgives, restores and heals. “He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives.”  Isaiah 61:1
• We believe God gives us power and authority for healing. “He gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases." Luke 9:1
• We believe God meets with us when we pray together. “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Matt. 18:20 
We believe there is healing simply in the asking. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find” Matt 7:7-11
• We believe we as God’s people can hear His voice. “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27
• We believe the Kingdom of Heaven comes near when we pray. “The kingdom of heaven is near. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons.” Matthew 10:7-8
• We believe prayer ministry should be marked by the fruits of the Spirit. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”  Galatians 5:22
• We believe the gifts of the Spirit are still relevant and for the edification of the body. “Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.”  1 Corinthians 12:7
• We believe it is an honor to pray with another so we minister with utmost care and respect. “Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.  Honor one another above yourselves.”  Romans 12:10

Place of Prayer



10:15 am–12:30 pm (closed holiday weekends)

The Place of Prayer was created for people to walk-in as the need arises without appointment to receive prayer. The Place of Prayer is located between the Sanctuary and the Auditorium with prayer times lasting 15-20 minutes. We want you to feel totally comfortable during your prayer time. Prayer ministers first listen to your prayer needs so they can fully understand your personal situation. Then, they will spend some time welcoming the Holy Spirit into your prayer time, begin listening to the Lord as to what He would have for you during the prayer time, and will pray as directed by His Spirit. They may use the Words of God found in scripture to address your needs and also to pray a blessing over you.


Seasons of Prayer

Additional Opportunities

Safe Harbor

Prayer and community are two of the things that anchor us deeply during the storms of life. If you are going through an extended difficult season we invite you to join one of our Safe Harbor small groups – for men or for women. These safe and confidential groups meet once a month for sharing and prayer. To join a group, we invite you to contact one of our Safe Harbor leaders.

Healing Prayer Resources

Just outside the Place of Prayer are materials for you to read or take home.

Freedom Class

Each semester we offer a Freedom class. Groups gather weekly to discuss the Freedom curriculum, which is designed to equip you to live the victorious and abundant life Christ came to give you. Freedom Groups build on the foundation of your faith in Christ to help you embrace the truth of God’s Word as it relates to your worldview, your past, your sin, your personal value to God, and your purpose in His Kingdom. This group will help you remove every obstacle to intimacy with God and walk in true freedom. The Freedom Curriculum focuses on six areas of personal growth: Living in the Tree of Life, Walking in the Spirit, Surrendering to Jesus, Speaking Words of Life, Becoming a Vessel God can Use, Living as a Worshipper. Watch the discipleship booklet for class offerings.
