Principles for Care and Prayer Ministry
Do people come to you and share their problems? Are you a member of a church prayer ministry team? Are you looking for confirmation that God might be calling you into the healing ministry? Do you feel called to care for others, but feel inadequate and ill-equipped?
This course looks at what it means to be involved in helping others through prayer ministry. Who we are and our heart attitudes are more important than what we know. Together we will discuss relational skills and there will be opportunities to use them in practical workshops.
Many people have testified that they found this course very encouraging and that through it God confirmed their calling into the healing ministry and started to equip them for this task.
Essential communication skills, such as attentive listening, developing sensitivity and how to ask questions are highlighted. Practical sessions offer an opportunity to put some of these skills into practice.
