Transforming Prayer Level 1
Third Tuesday of the Month
6:30 PM EST
Transforming Prayer (also known as formational prayer, inner healing prayer) is an aspect of the incarnational nature of God as revealed in Jesus Christ. The healing ministry of Jesus continues today, and this workshop provides experiential training in prayer forms and practices that open sacred space for God to bring restoration and wholeness to broken areas of life in body, soul and spirit.
Computer with internet connection and webcam for video conferencing. Reading of the following two books: Healing Care, Healing Prayer by Terry Wardle and Wounds That Heal by Stephen Seamands (Books available at amazon.com).
Class time will be spent in interactive conversation including lecture, discussion of the reading material, and "real-play" prayer time experience in Transforming Prayer.
- A deeper understanding of the healing ministry of Jesus Christ that seeks to heal the brokenhearted, to release and set free those who are in darkness, provide for those who grieve, blessing them with the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair (Isaiah 61:1-3).
- A greater capacity to discern the movement of God's healing presence in people's lives and how to respond accordingly in prayer.
- A transformation in the participant's own spiritual journey that results from participating with Jesus in his ministry of love to the church and to the world.
