MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER PRAYER GROUP
Brief History of the Ascension Prayer Group:
The Ascension Prayer group, formerly called the Encountered Couples Prayer Group
(ECPG), is a charismatic prayer group that gathers every Friday in a spirit of Adoration, Contrition, Thanksgiving and Supplication (ACTS) thru the invocation of the Holy Spirit.
Formed at Our Lady of Cenacle Church in Jamaica, Queens in November 2000 by six couples from the Marriage Encounter group, it gathers as a community to praise, worship, and honor God to build up the Body of Christ.
The prayer meetings lasts about two hours which includes singing praising songs, opening prayers by the assigned prayer leader. After the prayers, we read the Gospel for the coming Sunday and give our reflections and sharing, followed by a small fellowship to end the evening.
All are welcome, not just couples but all people of God who thirst for His presence and love.
