This program will share with participants how to pray effectively with family members, friends, and church members with information gathered from church history, where healing prayer flourished. The first session will show how the early Christian church practiced and experience healing prayer on a widespread and continual basis, and how and why this tradition of unction and prayer changed and was eventually formalized into being used for the safe passage of the soul at death only, what we know as Last Rites. The second through fourth sessions will discuss the role of faith, touch, intuition, words, the difference between petition and imperative prayer, and how prayer, medicine, psychology, common sense work together to bring God’s healing to those in need.

Session one. The Early Christian Church and the Widespread Practice of Healing Prayer. This session will give the historical background of how and why healing was commonplace in the early church, and then from the early Middle Ages onward, became a practice not encouraged by the Church in the West, including the various Protestant groups following the Reformation.
Session two: The Role of Faith in healing prayer. When and where it is important and when it is not. The role of common sense, and the integration of prayer, medicine, and psychology in healing today.

Session one: The role of touch, laying on of hands, historically and today, how and why this may be needed and when it is not.

Session two. The difference between petition and imperative prayers (such as demonstrated in the Our Father) and the impact of words in regards to effective healing prayer.
