Prayer

At Crossroads, we truly believe in the power of prayer, and that the Bible has much to say on the subject.

For example:  In 1 Timothy 2:1, Paul urges us to pray for "all people."  In Proverbs 15:8, the Bible also tells us that God delights in the prayers of His people.  In the Gospels, which record Jesus' time on Earth, we see that Jesus set time apart to pray on a regular basis.  In Matthew 6 and Luke 11, he even gave us an example of how to pray.  

Let us know how we can pray for you by clicking the "Request Prayer" button below.

    Freedom Ministry Prayer Groups

    Join us for new prayer-focused groups offered at Crossroads using the Freedom Tools materials by Andy Reese and Jennifer Barnett. 

    How many times in everyday conversation do we struggle to comfort others in a troubled world? Christians should be "first responders”, yet we lack the tools and confidence to reach out. We end up frustrated by our own inability to connect meaningfully and make a difference.  But what would happen if we had the ability and courage to speak out in love?

    These groups give you practical understanding and simple tools to do just that. You can fill even your casual conversations with the gentle yet transforming power of Jesus Christ. Here is what you need to confidently step out to bring peace, give grace and help others experience renewal.

    Freedom prayer is a prayer ministry founded by Andy Reese and Jen Barnett that seeks to restore individuals to a more intimate relationship with God, and to a more fulfilled and fruitful life. This prayer ministry appropriates the finished work of Christ on the cross to help others find freedom from sin, wounds, and strongholds that limit their abiding with God.  Visit www.freedomprayer.org for more information.


    First Freedoms Group
    Thursdays, June 6-August 8, 7:00-9:00 PM, Room 201, Newburgh Campus

    This group will discuss a different aspect of freedom each week such as our experience of the Godhead, forgiveness, wounding, and lies/ungodly beliefs, using materials by Jen Barnett.  We then break into smaller groups to practice ministering freedom to each other.  This group is a great way to experience a taste of what freedom ministry is about. Men and women ages 16 and up are welcome. Register online at cccgo.com


    Freedom Prayer Sessions
    Sundays, 10:15 AM-12:00 PM, Room 209, Newburgh Campus

    A freedom prayer session is a private, personal prayer time when a 2-3 member prayer team prays with an individual to gain freedom in one or more areas of their life and walk with Christ.  Sessions are by appointment only, please call Crossroads Counseling Center 812-518-1490.


    Freedom Tools Group
    Mondays, September 9-December 9, 6:15-8:00 PM, Room 222, Newburgh Campus

    This in-depth group will use Freedom Tools by Reese and Barnett, as our main text, but pulling from many various freedom ministries.  It is an excellent way to gain personal freedom, and learn how to minister freedom to others as well.  You will need the book Freedom Tools by Reese and Barnett (revised and expanded edition), available at Amazon.com or www.freedomprayer.org.  A meal is offered at 5:30pm. ($5.00 adult/$2.00 child).  Child care is available. Register online at cccgo.com/support


    Freedom Tools Group
    Wednesdays, August 28-December 4, 9:00 AM-11:00 AM, Room 209, Newburgh Campus

    This in-depth Women’s group will use Freedom Tools by Reese and Barnett, as our main text, but pulling from many various freedom ministries.  It is an excellent way to gain personal freedom, and learn how to minister freedom to others as well.  You will need the book Freedom Tools by Reese and Barnett (revised and expanded edition), available at Amazon.com or www.freedomprayer.org.  Childcare is available with advanced registration.  Registration opens August 1.

    Freedom Prayer
    Intentional, private, intercessor-led prayer time

    Freedom Prayer is an intentional, private, intercessor-led prayer time, connecting people to God.  Truths encountered in prayer move from “head knowledge” to experiencing that truth in the heart (Psalm 51:6), which brings about life change, greater freedom, and deeper intimacy with the Lord.

    To schedule a prayer time with someone from our Freedom Prayer team, call 812-518-1490.
