Prayer Minister Training Begins Soon

Prayer Minister Training at Branches Christian Healing Center:

Prayer ministry is the first thing that Jesus sent the apostles out to do; healing the sick, raising the dead, cleansing the lepers, delivering the oppressed, and declaring that the Kingdom of God has come near. (Matt 10) Now, as Jesus said then, the fields are ripe, but the laborers are few. More trained and gifted prayer ministers are needed to reach out and touch God’s children with loving, healing hands. As Jesus taught his disciples two thousand years ago, prayer ministers still need to be trained. Not all illness is physical, not all oppression is demonic, not all death is physical, and not all leprosy is external. Ministers need to be taught what to look for in the suffering prayer recipient (prayee), and then be led by the Holy Spirit to say the right things.

At Branches Christian Healing Center we see prayees with a wide variety of issues. It is truly a blessing to be God’s instrument in praying for them. When God heals, it is an amazing gift to the prayee, but also to the prayer minister. It is a humbling joy indefinable until one experiences it.

We do need many new, committed prayer ministers. To that end, we are in Level 3 of prayer minister training right now. In August and September there will be make-up sessions for those who missed sessions from the first three levels. Level 4 training will begin in October and continue into November. There is still room to for people to join in the training; there is no fee. Bring a sack lunch.
