Prayer Ministry at Grace Fellowship Church seeks to be a “connector” plugging every man, woman, and child into the relationship of prayer — talking and listening to God. We also seek to reach every family, the community, our nation, and even the world with the Gospel of Christ by tilling the spiritual soil, “praying” forth God’s workers, and asking God on behalf of the nations. We would love for you to join in on the action. For information on how to be involved, stop by the Great Southwest Prayer Center office, or call us at 281-646-1903, ext. 151, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prayer Center Hours
Prophetic Prayer Training

The training will be held on Sunday, Nov 7, from Noon-4pm in the Great Southwest Prayer Center located inside the Ministry Building. Registration is required.
The Various Ministries of Prayer
Freedom & Healing
ABOUT OUR MINISTRY TEAM
Our ministry team is comprised of believers trained to carry out the Lord’s mandates, helping people receive and walk in Jesus’ promises; to be set free from sin patterns, heaviness and depression, controlling fears, and spiritual footholds. All is done by using our authority in Jesus’ name through specialized prayers of intercession, confession, repentance, and blessing.

At the heart of the Healing Rooms Ministry is a passion to see the power of God’s kingdom released in people’s lives through the anointing of the Holy Spirit and a supernatural touch of God through the power of prayer. The members of the Freedom & Healing ministry partner with God to see a person become free from disease and pain. The purpose of healing is to show people that God is alive, powerful, and able to do this and more. Healing points us to Jesus. Healing Rooms are open every LAST Sunday of each month from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm. No appointments are needed. All are welcome.
Generational Healing Service
Neil Anderson, author of Victory over the Darkness, says that “the iniquities of one generation can adversely affect future ones unless those sins are renounced and your new heritage in Christ claimed.” The Generational Healing Service is held each year in January and will help believers recognize sin patterns in their families, renounce them, and claim the blessing of Abraham as promised in Galatians 3:13-14. You will learn how the enemy takes advantage of believers by stealing their blessings and how to defeat that plan. Corporate prayers will lead the believer to intercede for their families, break any revealed generational sin patterns, and claim the blessing of your inheritance. Communion will complete the service as a sign of Christ’s redemptive work. To register, contact Mickey Ellis. This service can also be offered to small groups.
More in-depth ministry follow up after Soul Therapy. Private, discipleship mentoring with a trained mentor (non-licensed). How to know yourself, recognize and break free from sin patterns of the past so as to live victoriously in Christ and how to live by the Spirit of God daily is the focus. Homework required. To setup an appointment, please contact Mickey Ellis.
Soul Therapy (Steps to Freedom in Christ)
Soul Therapy is an in-depth spiritual inventory of the believer’s life from birth to the present that will help reveal hindrances to a closer walk with Christ. Spiritual footholds that block the abundant life promised by Christ are defeated through aggressive prayer. Believers are instructed how to gain and live consistently the life of victory and abundance as they learn their true and victorious identity in Christ. For those who feel burdened and stuck spiritually even after applying the spiritual disciplines of prayer, fasting, Bible study, and worship, Power Encounter will help believers gain freedom from oppressive thoughts and behaviors and will learn how to maintain their victory in Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. Soul Therapy & Power Encounter are by appointment and are confidential, as well as gender appropriate.
Victory Over Darkness Bible Study
Available to every believer is the power to conquer the enemy’s daily attacks by knowing who they are in Christ. By the end of this 6-week class, based on Neil T. Anderson’s books by the same name, you will understand how to live triumphantly, which is Jesus’ promise to you. You will discover the truth about God’s view of you and realize the power of your identity in Christ by learning how to free yourself from the burdens of your past, stand against the spiritual forces of this world, win the battle for your mind, and become the spiritual person you want to be and Christ has empowered you to be. A youth version of the class, geared toward teens, is also available and is based on Dr. Anderson’s book Stomping out the Darkness which he co-authored with Dave Park. This class is offered each Fall.
For Me to Live is Christ
Rather than “trying to live the Christian life,” which still centers on our own efforts, as Christians we need to allow Christ to live His life in us. This removes all reliance on human effort and frees us to become totally Christ centered. The message of this 8-week class, based on Dr. Charles Solomon’s book of the same name, is the “exchanged life,” whereby the believer learns how to exchange the life lived in the flesh for the life lived in the Spirit. The flesh is defined as “the soul’s selfish and distorted perceptions, values, identity messages, and coping mechanisms that have been learned independently of God.” This spiritual growth study explores the triune makeup of man as spirit, soul, and body, as well as our spiritual psychological and physical makeup. This class is offered each January.
Spiritual House Cleaning
If you are experiencing unexplainable circumstances and phenomena in your home; continuous family problems as if a “dark cloud” is over the family/home, our Freedom In Christ ministry team, conducts spiritual housecleaning by using specialized prayers of warfare, renunciation, and consecration. To setup an appointment, please contact Mickey Ellis.
Exchanged Life is a discipleship ministry that focuses on the believer’s relationship to the cross of Christ. The Holy Spirit is the therapist who renews the mind and transforms our lives in accordance with Romans 12:1-2. This is a ministry that trains believers how to walk by the Spirit of God so as not to carry out the lusts of the flesh (Romans 8:13). This one-on-one ministry is by appointment and is confidential. Contact Pam AlSheikh at (281) 346-0555.
Prophetic Prayer is available to prayerfully hear the voice of the Lord in order to encourage, edify, and exhort believers for His purpose in their lives. This ministry is Biblically structured on 1Cor. 14:3, Joel 2:28, and Acts 2:17 and it is available on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 10:30 am - noon in the Great Southwest Prayer Center. Contact Larry Smith at 281-646-1903, ext. 192 or email him at email@example.com for more information.
Audience of One (Prayer Room)
Audience of One is the name of our live prayer and worship sets in the prayer center. It is a corporate expression of worship and prayer to our Audience of One, the Lord our God. Facilitated by churches in the Katy/West Houston area, it is a love offering to the One that first loved us. Audience of One is a gathering place where people can hear the heart of the Lord as they share their heart with Him. All are welcome and you are free to come and go as you like.
Check out the schedule for the times, days, topics and who is leading.
Audience of One is designed to allow everyone in the room to enter into the worship and prayer that is being presented before the throne of God. Against a backdrop of candlelight, you may engage in the topical prayers that are being offered, you may sing with the presented worship, or you may silently offer up your own heart-felt prayers. The setting is such that you may find peace in the presence of the Lord. For your convenience, there are tables set up throughout the room providing a place to study the Word. Or, if you prefer, you may visit the various prayer stations strategically located around the perimeter of the room. Finally, feel free to express your worship at the Art Wall, use the available supplies, or bring your own. Come just as you are. Perhaps bring your Bible, a journal, your laptop, even a bottle of water or a cup of coffee (no other food or beverage is allowed in the prayer room).
In the absence of a live worship and prayer meeting, there will be a live stream from International House of Prayer, Kansas City, or, quiet pre-recorded music. For prayer meeting times please view our schedule.
