Monthly Tuesday Evening of Silent Soaking Prayer (ESSP)
TIME: Tuesdays (monthly) from 7:00-9:00pm.
LOCATION AND ROOM: Columbia Baptist Church, room 146
2013 DATES: Jan 8*, Feb 12, Mar 12, Apr 9*, May 14, Jun 11, Jul 9*, not in Aug, Sep 10, Oct 8*, Nov 5, Dec 3
WHAT: Two hours of quiet time to be in God’s presence. Do you find it hard to set aside periods of time to listen to the Lord? Is it difficult to hear Him in Holy Silence? The Evenings of Soaking Prayer may be for you
WHO: You, God, and two of our prayer teams.
WHAT TO BRING: A blanket, long sleeves (if you get chilled by air conditioning), Bible, journal, and an expectant heart.
HOW DOES IT WORK? From 7:00-9:00pm, the room is open for silent prayer facilitated by gentle, worshipful music. Bring a blanket and pillows if you prefer to stretch out before the Lord. Small cards are provided for written prayer requests. Prayer ministers circulate and silently/quietly pray over all who come and for any written requests. The prayer ministers won't speak to you during this time, as the point is for you to hear from God. You may sit, or sit and journal, or stretch out on the floor; whatever helps you receive from the Lord and doesn’t disturb others. Stay as long as you like and leave quietly whenever you wish.

* Mother and Father Blessing on Jan 8th, Apr 9, Jul 9th and Oct 8th. None of us had perfect parents, or are ourselves perfect parents. Many of us still are carrying burdens we were not meant to bear arising from our childhoods or adult relationships with our parents. How many of us still remember harsh words from a parent, a parent who travelled for business and was never there for your sports and school activities, a parent who could not deal with his/her own problems which spilled into the family, a parent who could not or did not provide the love and nurturing you needed. How many of us came from broken homes or lost a parent early in life, or still feel that we cannot live up to a parents' expectations? How many of us feel guilt for something we did, or said, or should have said to a parent, or feel that we were in some way responsible for a parent's divorce? Jesus came to Earth to heal us and make us whole. Today He is doing just that, removing burdens that we were not meant to bear, hurts that we carry around with us, some of which impact our image of God and our relationship with Him. This special one hour Mother-Father Blessing provides an opportunity for the Lord to minister to you in this area, healing what needs to be healed and showing us who we truly are in Him, His beloved.
