Prayer Ministry Counseling
Many of us live far below the abundance that Jesus came to bring us – this includes our children. A lot of times our kids experience emotional trauma, abuse or abandonment that takes control of their lives and keeps them bound. We try to help them cope with the pain in their lives through various activities and strategies only to find them as well as the family in deeper despair. We wonder, “Are things ever going to get better?” A lot of times there is no one that we can really talk to – we just find ourselves more and more secluded, lonely, confused and desperate for help. You think, “We’re a Christian family, this shouldn’t be happening, or “I shouldn’t be feeling this way, etc, etc.” All sorts of emotions that are debilitating can grip us at this point. There is help.
Although Christ took the stripes so that we might be healed, miraculous instant healings are not often the norm. Most people have to walk out their healing. Physical wounds heal much quicker than the woundings of the heart & soul. These wounds appear to be hidden but surface in the form of negative behavior patterns. For teens and their parents this can be crippling for life.
There is hope. Eagles’ Wings Prayer Counseling Ministry
Through teaching and prayer your teen can be whole and live the abundant life that is referred to in John 10:10 “Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly”
What is Prayer Ministry?
Prayer ministry is inner healing based on the Lordship of Jesus Christ, prayer and the application of Biblical principles and truths. All sessions help build trust and relationships through many Christ-centered disciplines. Woundings and/or trauma manifest themselves in the form of depression, compulsive behaviors, anger and addictions as well as relational difficulties. There is healing for all of these in the presence of Jesus Christ.
Our purpose is to help your teen appropriate the power of the cross of Christ and to begin to live a new life in the freedom purchased by His blood. With an open heart, time and discipline your teen can work through issues that have hindered them and know the healing power of Jesus for a lifetime.
How Does It Work?
A prayer minister facilitates the ministry session and asks questions to help your teen recognize destructive behaviors and thought patterns and the roots that cause them. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the application of biblical principles, Jesus is asked to bring truth to replace the lies that your teen has come to believe. Healing then begins to take place.
