Elijah House Prayer Ministry equipping course – Mervin’s Testimony.

In September, Mark and Terry Benevente from Elijah House School of Ministry came to our church to run prayer ministry sessions, as they have done for a number of years. This time, they also came to train a few of our leaders who were interested in a deeper level of understanding and equipping of the ministry tools, which would ultimately allow them to be more effective in ministering to others.

The first half of the Prayer Ministry course was run over the week, and the leaders all received a certificate of completion at the end of it! They will complete the next half of the course in 2018.

One of our leaders, Mervin, shared his testimony with us.

 

“Prayer Ministry and Deliverance” – What used to immediately come to mind whenever I came across that term, was one of a Priest commanding an unclean spirit to leave, all the while holding an opened Bible in one hand and the other on the head of the person getting ministered to.

How wrong I was.

What I saw and experienced during the training was immensely peaceful, introspective and most importantly, Spirit led. We would be equipped in the basics during the day and were given time to practise what we learned amongst ourselves. We were unsure of what to do at times, but the Lord took the little that we had and multiplied it as we could see our fellow classmates being healed on the inside. We all felt ministered to and we definitely knew that God was bringing the healing to our lives and souls.

While we were ministering to each other, Ps. Mark, Terry, Angie and Josefa were all ready to give us a hand whenever we felt stuck. They skillfully brought the ministry sessions to a wonderful close each time. By the end of 4 days, we all came out of the training feeling refreshed, light as a feather and also, whole.

At FGA, we come from all walks of life. Each of our lives are so different but one of the things we have in common is that we are all broken people whom God wants to make whole. And prayer ministry is one of the ways He makes us whole again. Prayer ministry is for everyone, and I would encourage every follower of Christ to attend it regularly.

    4 days ago  #aboutlastweekend : Jason Wong shared his journey behind the founding of the Yellow Ribbon Project, which promotes second chances for ex-offenders. The premise of his message, which was to 'look for the sparkle' in others, reminds us that God never fails to see the sparkle in us first, and so we can do the same for others.  #fgasingapore
