Prayer Classes – Final Semester
It has been fun to watch our class learn to Listen, Love and Pray. Twenty five years ago Chuck and I began our journey of learning healing prayer starting at the Christian Healing Ministry in Jacksonville, Florida. We went to classes, and Chuck did a pastor’s internship. I went to a Healing Retreat and then we both went to serve as Prayer Ministers. Little did I know that healing would first begin in my own life: losing a dad at 10, and being sexually abused at 8, and just experiencing the brokenness that life hands us. As one speaker stated “Do not let your past rob your future.” As I experienced much freedom for my life I realized that this was God’s desire for all people! I found myself desiring all people to experience this freedom and started seeing it in the people who would say “Yes” to being prayed with. One of the main things I learned was that if I followed God’s plan in praying He knew the person better than I and he knew where to start the Healing. I remember how the Disciples said “teach us to pray” because they saw the relationship Jesus had with His Father “God.” That is my prayer.
This last section of classes will be on doing Prayer.
