HEALING

SERVICES

HEALING SERVICES

Are you suffering from or living with a physical, mental, or emotional condition? Do you want to be healed? If so, we are here to offer help and hope through prayer. Services of Prayer for Healing are held twice a year. What will you experience at this service? Soft music, scripture, a testimony of healing, Holy Communion, and prayers for healing and wholeness. Each person decides if they want to pray alone or with a prayer team, if they want to be anointed with oil or not. The Service of Prayer for Healing provides an opportunity for us to still our spirits before God, to rest and glory in His presence, and to be made whole. Come and experience the healing that can occur in such a Spirit-filled setting.

Members trained by CarePartners participate on a Care Team and provide companionship and fun for individuals living with memory loss. For more information, to arrange a visit or to register a loved one to participate in this program please call 713-682-5995 or visit www.CarePartnersTexas.org.
