The International Order of Saint Luke is an inter-denominational religious order dedicated to the Christian healing ministry begun in 1932 by an Episcopal priest. OSL is ecumenical, with members belonging to a variety of Christian denominations. OSL believes that healing exists today. Healing occurs through the hands of health professionals as well as through the hands of fellow Christians. As the Bible teaches, we are equipped to heal with the power of Jesus Christ.

Jesus is the Healer in all cases, but he does want us to ask for healing with faith and persistence (Luke 11:9-13 ). When we are welcomed into God's Kingdom, God already has an assignment for us to help and reach others. If you believe a prayer ministry with a healing focus is what God is giving to you, let's talk! Praying for hurting people is a way for you to give back and pay forward the kindness and provision our Heavenly Father has given to all of us. The answers to pray that we receive bring glory to our Lord and Savior, who bore his stripes so that we could be healed (I Peter 2:24).
