Transforming and healing prayer relies on the Presence of Christ. No technique, no method, no psychoanalysis, no system. Only Jesus is adequate for the deep, complex issues of our souls coming from our entirely unique, personal journeys. True peace comes only from Christ himself, not from the world (John 14:24). So if we then rely on Jesus in this vital ministry, we must understand His Presence. What are the sorts of things that Jesus does “when He shows Up”? How do we hear His voice? How do we discern His true presence? This becomes a huge “paradigm shift”. In this audio message, from ministry teaching at a conference in the UK, I answer these questions and also develop “principles” of Christ’s presence from years of ministry. Some examples from actual ministry sessions help to answer these questions.
Healing and Transforming Prayer: Simple or Complex?
From my years of software development I came across the diagram above. I have no idea who the author is or was. I discuss the diagram at the beginning of my teaching. Why? Because as God’s kids it seems the world has made complex what was meant to be simple – to receive Christ’s healing, transformation and love in ways that each of us can uniquely receive and understand. I invite you to listen to the teaching via the audio link below.
