The International Order of St. Luke the Physician

WHO WE ARE

OSL is an international, inter-denominational, Christian healing organization made up of small healing communities dedicated to offering healing prayer in Jesus’ name to all who are in need. We are a Christian community of faith, prayer, and service. We are a network of believers who come together to learn more about God’s healing love and the power of the Holy Spirit to transform lives and bring wholeness. Once trained, we offer the healing power of prayer in our communities. This is our unique mission and ministry.

OSL is a lay led ministry with an appointed Convener who leads the meetings, and sends out correspondence and a monthly prayer letter to those for whom we pray. Members of the group may offer Healing Prayer following worship by becoming part of a Prayer Team. They also may choose to assist in any activities and functions of the Healing Community as deemed necessary or beneficial for our ministries.

OUR MISSION

The first OSL meeting at St.Luke’s was held on September 7th. We have continued to meet monthly on the first Saturday of each month from 9:00 a. m. to 12:00. Our meetings include teachings on Intercessory Prayer grounded in scripture, practice in Intercessory
Prayer and the laying on of hands as well as celebration of the Eucharist. Beginning in January of 2020, our meetings will be lead by a Convener and will also include Bible Studies on the Healing Miracles of Jesus.

Our ministry will soon begin to offer Intercessory Prayer and the laying on of hands following communion or at the conclusion of worship. We plan to begin to offer these prayers at the 10:00 a.m. Sunday service. We will add additional services as Prayer Teams are formed.

Chaplains for the group presently include the Revs Jim and Susan Schubert. We now celebrate having 10 members, but anticipate others will join who have indicated they will be available in the new year. We warmly welcome anyone within or beyond St. Luke’ congregation who feels called to this ministry of Healing Prayer. You may contact Claire Clark,Convener, for more information. Come and witness what God is doing in our community. Be part of this life-changing ministry.

Respectfully Submitted,
Rev. Susan Schubert, AZ Dir. OSL
