What is Resting Prayer?
Resting (Soaking) prayer is for anyone who wants to spend some time in stillness with God, to be in His presence and wait on Him.
It is especially beneficial for those struggling with illness and those who are in stressful situations.
We have discovered it is often beneficial to spend a longer period in silent resting prayer when we ask the Holy Spirit to gently touch those places which hurt inside because of illness, or stress or anxiety.
We start with a short talk on Father-God’s love for us, then we begin our time of resting (soaking) prayer. Guests are encouraged to relax either by sitting in a chair or lying down. There is soft gentle music playing for fifty minutes. The Prayer Team pray for each guest silently during this time. A short time of personal blessing is offered at the end before guests leave.
You might want to think of resting prayer as drawing close to God, to spend time with Him, reclining or sitting with Him. It may be a time of bringing cares and concerns to God and receiving peace and healing. Resting prayer gives an opportunity of stopping the rush of life for a while and having time to be renewed and restored in Him.
‘Be still and know that I am God.’ Psalm 46:10a
Resting Prayer may lead to more healing or complement an earlier appointment for ministry at The Well.
