Prayer is communicating with God and is central both for the individual and the church’s relationship with God.
The Prayer Ministry Training Course is for anyone who wants to learn how to give and receive in this crucial area of ministry. The course was developed at Holy Trinity Brompton to train existing home group leaders and members to pray for people in a home and church environment.
The course consists of three sessions which cover the theology of prayer ministry and suggest a simple model for anyone unfamiliar with this type of ministry. The three sessions are:
- A basic model
- Building on the basic model
The following issues are covered:
- Helping someone become a Christian
- Praying for someone to be filled with the Holy Spirit
- Praying for healing
- Listening to God
The course sessions, filmed in 1999, were originally available on video to watch but the DVDs are no longer available. They can, however, be viewed online for free: please email [email protected] for the link to watch them. This training manual includes bullet point notes which follow the video sessions and gives Bible references and key quotes from the sessions.
