Discovery Prayer Ministry
Our approach to prayer ministry is a coaching style. We don’t diagnose or prescribe. We don’t pray something that declares you are now fixed that bypasses the resolving of your pain.
We call this coaching style Discover Prayer Ministry as it helps people connect with God’s love and live there daily by discovering the blockages. The picture is a mother hen longing to gather her chicks under the safety and nurture of her wings but her chicks resisting. Matt.23:37 A life of living in love, emotional balance, and spiritual maturity is available for anyone who removes the obstacles to it.
Dignity and Responsibility
We believe there are two core concepts in prayer ministry: dignity and personal responsibility.
Dignity is the opposite of shame. Shame says “I am flawed,” and it causes us to give up our boundaries and devalue our own thoughts and feelings. This diminishes our God Identity.
Encouraging people to honor their “God Identity” in prayer ministry includes respecting their own choices and feelings. These are all God-given functions, and when we are restored to connecting with them, we can truly discern our issues and bring them to the Lord for His provision.
Personal Responsibility is thus empowered as people take responsibility for their own pain—a key to lasting change. We help facilitate you connecting with how you feel and what you believe, to hearing what God is speaking to you about those things. Along these sames lines, we do not counsel, offer you advice, diagnose your issue, seek to provide personal insight, give direction in the session, provide steps of action for you to take, nor try to solve your problems. In this simple prayer ministry approach, we have seen severe trauma, life-time habits, and all types of relational conflicts resolved. Instead of trying to be someone’s savior we seek to empower people with dignity and personal responsibility.
