CHARISMATIC PRAYER GROUP
Is a group of men and women, who gather weekly, Tuesday 10:30-12:30 approximately, to pray in the Truelson Room.
The group is registered with the Catholic Charismatic Renewal (CCR) Brisbane, under the authority of the Brisbane Archdiocese.
Our program is set out by CCR worldwide. It consists of an opening prayer and approximately 6 to 8 praise songs, followed by a quiet time, approximately 15 minutes. The aim is to clear one’s thoughts and allow the Holy Spirit to be present.
During this time, a message, a scripture or an image from the Lord, or a prophetic message or two may enter your though. This time can be very special as one never knows what may take place. At this point you may share your thoughts.
This is followed by a story, a witness, a Scripture or a teaching which we can open up and discuss. Then followed on by intercessory prayers for family, friends, sick of the Parish and personal needs etc.
A card is then select a card from a box of Scriptures and read aloud. Amazing how they tie into the days teaching a personal life. We are all gifted with the Holy Spirit as in Baptism and Confirmation. Some have the Gift of Tongues, some Gift of prophesies both of which may be spoken during this time.
At prayer Group one can speak openly and freely knowing that nothing leaves the room, as we are there for each other in trust.
A beautiful poem for you gift
What is it that you hold in your hand?
Nothing you say? Look Again!
Every hand holds some special gift
A hammer, a broom, a pen, a hoe, a scalpel,
An artists’ brush, a needle, a phone or cookbook,
A music score, a way with words, a smile or comforting look,
What is that you hold in your hand?
Whatever your gift may be it can open the door
To a spirit filled life.
You hold in your hand God’s keys!!
