Frequently Asked Questions about Prayer Ministry

Many people have questions about prayer ministry, from basic ones about what it is, to queries about what practices should and should not be a part of prayer ministry, through to questions about where to find ministry and how to be trained to carry it out.

To help answer these questions we have set up FAQ pages on the website.

If you have questions not answered in the FAQ pages then email us and we will try to answer them. We are presently developing a more extensive set of questions with more complete answers on another prayer counselling resources website, and will post the details here when it is ready.

Beth Tephillah Dissociation Seminar

The seminar on dissociation to be run by Beth Tephillah Ministries in November is fully booked out. We are sorry that so many have missed out, but are compiling a waiting list for a repeat seminar early next year. Contact Beth Tephillah Ministry Centre if you are interested.

September’s Generational Iniquity seminar was packed out, and the comments of those who participated were very positive. We are having a follow-up afternoon on Saturday 13th October for those who attended the seminar and need help with their genogram.

We are preparing a new seminar series for 2008, with many new topics. Information will be posted as it becomes available.

New Horizons Ministry Centre – Colac

Welcome to a new ministry centre – New Horizons Ministry Centre, hosted by the Uniting Church in Colac. Details are available on the HPMN Centres page.

Thanks to Rob Sterner-Lind for the following details:

Last year Colac Uniting Church had a vision for a prayer ministry centre that would develop into a centre providing many other ministry functions. Late last year they were able to purchase a beautiful 10 acre property situated on the edge of town. God’s hand was obviously on the purchase as approvals went through in what can only be described as a miraculously short time frame.

They now have a team of ten people some of whom have trained at Ellel, some at Restoration, some at Sonrise with all of the team undergoing in-house training in healing prayer ministry since early this year.

New Horizons’ doors have recently opened to ‘real’ clients and there is an air of excitement as we see clients’ lives being changed through the power of the Holy Spirit (not to mention the changes we have seen in team members over the past six months).

New Horizons is headed up by Rev. Kevin and Anne Cranwell.

Seminar – Intimacy with God

Beth Tephillah Seminars for 2007.

Following on from our successful Hearing God’s Voice seminar in May, we are having a seminar on:

Intimacy with God
Saturday 14th July, 10 am to 4 pm
at
Beth Tephillah Ministry Centre,
55 Park Crescent, Williamstown (Mel 55 J7)

Jesus prayed:”Righteous Father, … I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

Many struggle with intimacy with God. He can be a remote figure, not the loving Father about whom Jesus speaks.

This seminar aims to help participants come closer to Father God, learning more about his heart of love. False images of God will be discussed, and his true nature explored. Learn how to live in his presence like Jesus did. Out of intimacy with him comes the possibility of intimacy with others.

Cost: $25.00. There will be practical sessions. Refreshments will be provided. BYO lunch.

Please advise Malcolm or Diana Dow you are coming as places are limited.

Contact Beth Tephillah Ministry Centre, PO Box 138 Williamstown, 3016. Phone: 9397 2430, Fax: 9397 2430, or Email to:
pastors@bethtephillah.com.

The 2007 seminar series continues on the following dates:

  • Saturday 8th September – Generational Healing
  • Saturday 17th November – Becoming the Dear Departed: Dealing with Dissociation

Beth Tephillah Ministries Seminars for 2007

The topics and dates for our 2007 seminars at Beth Tephillah Ministries have been set. This year there will be four, each on a Saturday. The first seminar for the year is:

Hearing God’s Voice

  Saturday 12th May, 10 am to 4 pm

at

Beth Tephillah Ministry Centre,

55 Park Crescent, Williamstown (Mel 55 J7)

 

 

“Hear the Word of the Lord” has been a common instruction to God’s people through the centuries. Jesus, who IS that Word, told us that sheep listen for their shepherd’s voice and follow him because they know his voice, and He expects His sheep to respond to His voice.

This seminar aims to help participants hear, identify, understand and obey the voice of Father God.

Cost: $25.00. There will be practical sessions. Refreshments will be provided. BYO lunch.

Please advise Malcolm or Diana Dow you are coming as places are limited.

Contact Beth Tephillah Ministry Centre, PO Box 138 Williamstown, 3016. Phone: 9397 2430, Fax: 9397 2430, or Email to pastors@bethtephillah.com.

Speaking in Tongues and Prayer Ministry

The Spiritual gift of speaking in tongues, or glossolalia, is an important part of the believers arsenal in listening to and obeying the voice of God. It is extremely useful in healing and prayer ministry. However, a great deal of the available teaching is misleading, and sometimes deceptive. There is a strong focus on the dangers, prompting believers to live in fear rather than faith, with almost no teaching on the uses of this gift.

Prompted by a comment by Mal Austin about my old article on speaking in tongues: Tongues – making it happen, on the Healing Prayer Ministries Network website, I’ve writen the first of a series on this topic on my Speaking-in-Tongues blog. The first of these new articles is called Tongues five years on.

I will be covering many aspects of the nature, purpose and exercise of the gift, including its usefulness in spiritual discernment, hearing God’s voice, addressing demons, and ministering into the spirit of a person.

Nadia’s with Jesus

On Monday we received an email message, “Have you heard the latest news about Nadia?” This alerted us to her sudden illness and was quickly followed by news of her death. How our hearts go out to Phillip and the family, especially in the shock of their loss. Nadia had endeared herself to all who met her, with the sweet and gentle spirit and a graciousness that comes in a life committed to Jesus.

The leader of the Endeavour Centre, the first of the church prayer ministry centres and, most recently, leader of Fountain Gate Christian Centre prayer ministry centre, Nadia had regularly participated in the Prayer Ministries Network meetings from their commencement and either she or Phillip in the Healing Prayer Ministries Network meetings from 2003. We will miss her. How good to have the assurance that Jesus knows, loves and cares and one day we will be together in his presence.
