Saturday morning, Oct. 5, was a great day for drive-thru prayer!

Whole Man Ministries church members gathered together to welcome over 40 people needing prayer. A vision was inspired by Pastor Camilla Washington in 2010 while driving her son to school and seeing a church in Lewisville having a morning drive-thru prayer offering coffee and doughnuts. After seeing Bishop Mack of Union Baptist having a drive-thru prayer on the East side of Winston-Salem earlier this summer, Pastor Camilla was inspired to move forward on offering the drive-thru prayer.

“I was even the more determined to have the prayer after such a tumultuous summer in the city with murders, crimes and racial divisiveness.” said Pastor Camilla. 

There has been an uptick in crime activity in the Triad of late and prayer is much needed. Pastor Camilla said, “The time is now to make a difference on the south side of town with prayer and if we can’t get them on the inside of the church, we must go on the outside of the Church!”

Several cars lined up single file through the parking lot, one after the other, asking for much needed prayer. After prayer, each person was given a Chick-fil-A four count Chicken Mini and a bottle of water. Several prayer requests ranged from healing and job opportunities to family members and peace of mind. One in particular Bishop Washington remembered was an 82-year-old woman with her adult son who drove through for prayer for lung issues. “She was overwhelmed, in tears, and said this is just what she needed,” said Bishop Barry Washington.

“October is the month the enemy tries to take away from the people. It was paramount that we started this prayer the first week of October,” said Bishop Washington.  “October is the gateway to Thanksgiving and Christmas; both can be overwhelming, causing depression when a person is alone or overwhelmed with bills.”

Whole Man Ministries church members were holding up signs that read “All are welcome,” “drive-thru prayer,” “refreshments,” smiling and jumping, inviting the traffic to turn in for prayer, while another group handed out chips, Chicken Minis and water, and offered napkins to many who were crying after a comforting prayer.

When all was said and done, it was an AMAZING DAY! Who knew how great the need, but God! Drive-thru prayer was just as much a blessing to church members as it was for those receiving on the other end. There were cheers from the members saying we have to do this again! 
November might just be the month.
