Prayer and Healing Ministries
Basic Understandings of Healing and Worship
The Bible affirms spiritual healing.
"Are any among you sick? They should call the elders of the church and have them pray for them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord" (James 5:14).
The Bible clearly calls disciples to pray with and for one another, so When pastors and laity pray for people with the laying on of hands , this faithful ministry of touch with prayer pleads and performs (enacts) the grace of God. This touch bridges alienation, swallows isolation, breaks suffering, and opens discouraged human spirits.
When people are hurting, and when there is an invitation to share the pain, people respond. It is very natural and an act of hope in God.
