1st & 3rd Sundays
Walking In Health
At Grace Family Church, we know God is our Savior, Redeemer and Healer. Our trained and anointed teams partner with the Holy Spirit to minister to those who come for prayer for physical healing and deliverence. We minister to people of all ages and all churches. Connect with our Facebook group – Here.
Healing Ministry is offered the first and third Sundays of the month. The healing rooms are open directly after service in the child care area. No appointments are necessary and anyone in need of physical healing is welcome (members or not).
We offer healing ministry training throughout the year. Information is posted on our website and app. Resources and training on mp3 links are available per email request.
Principles & Results
Healing is activated by the power of the Holy Spirit, through simple prayers of faith, speaking to the condition and the laying on of hands. The emphasis is on the presence of God, not the minister(s). We believe in praying short prayers, checking for results and giving thanks to God for even the smallest improvement. People are touched by the presence of God and are physically healed!
Upon arrival, the person needing prayer will check in and fill out an informational form describing their current physical concern. They proceed into the auditorium where our team members have been praying, interceding and worshipping God and preparing themselves in an atmosphere of expectancy, faith and joy. They are called on one by one to receive prayer from teams of 2 to 3 ministers and after a short prayer, the ministers will check for results, thanking God for any improvement or healing and offer another quick prayer if needed. The person is then released to go home or stay and experience the other healings of those in your group. Testimonies are gathered and some may be posted on social media.

Isaiah 53:4-5 (Amplified) – Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.
• Forgiveness of sins and healing of the body are both a work of the cross.
• Forgiveness was a free gift by grace. Healing is a free gift by grace.
1 Peter 2:24 (Amplified) – He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed.
• Past tense, it is finished. The price was paid.
Psalm 103:1-3 (NKJV) Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,
• Heals all our diseases.
Mark 16:17, 18, 20 (KJV) – And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name… they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover… And they went forth, and preached every where, The Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
• Healing by the authority of the Name of Jesus. (Acts 4:30)
• God confirms His word.
• The Lord working with them – Nothing is impossible with God.
Helping others to have confidence before God:
1 John 3:21 (NKJV) Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.
John 3:16-17 (KJV) – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
• God’s motivation for the work of the cross (including forgiveness of sins and healing of the body) was His unfailing love.
Luke 11:1-2 (KJV) – …Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed by thy name…
• We’re not asking a distant God, we are asking our heavenly Father who’s near, loves us and gave His
