Course & Seminar Summary


Module 1: Understanding the Issues & Roots
(five-day course)

Module 1 of the School of Prayer Counselling & Healing Ministry lays down the biblical foundations for understanding Christian healing ministry; establishes and identifies the key areas and issues that lie at the root of many of the personal and spiritual conflicts encountered by believers; and highlights how they may be overcome in a godly and wholesome way in the quest for healing and wholeness. These conflicts - unrecognized, ignored, or left unresolved - are often the precipitating causes in the breakdown of vital relationships, deep rejection, depression, emotional unheaval, even physical sickness and disease.


Despite what they know to be the truth: that Jesus Christ came to Earth so that His people may have life and have it to the full, many Christians today do not consistently experience or live out this abundant life. There are many possible reasons for this: rejection, a poor self-image, false guilt, self-condemnation, pronouncements, inner vows, depression, fear, anxiety, even chronic illness or disease.

Beginning with God's design for mankind at creation, the Fall and its consequences, the seminar traces how man's personal and spiritual problems can result in brokenness in spirit, soul (mind, emotion, will) and body. Looking next at the nature of the human person, participants are shown how the different parts of a person can be sick and dysfyunctional. It then discusses how the lack of emotional nurture limits healthy growth and development, and finally the essential keys to help believers who are wounded and broken find restoration and wholeness again in Christ.

Restoring Your Wholeness in Christ
(one-day seminar)

Despite what they know to be the truth: that Jesus Christ came to Earth so that His people may have life and have it to the full, many Christians today do not consistently experience or live out this abundant life. There are many possible reasons for this: rejection, a poor self-image, false guilt, self-condemnation, pronouncements, inner vows, depression, fear, anxiety, even chronic illness or disease.

Healing through Deliverance
(one-day seminar)

The Bible declares that those who choose to follow Jesus Christ will be subjected to much persecution because of the opposing works of satan and his demons. However, those who know God's Word and the truth about satan and his host, will be in a better position to resist and overcome these spiritual enemies.

This seminar looks at how these works of darkness can be exposed, overcome, and the captive people of God released. Participants are introduced to the nature of the spiritual realms, the influence spiritual forces can have on believers, and the consequences resulting from occultic activity. It also addresses the issue of demonization: how demons gain entry and control and their effect on family lines, before concluding with teaching on how to be set free through deliverance ministry.


Honouring Godly Sex and Sexuality
(one-day seminar)

In the space of just one generation, standards of sexual morality and practice have undergone such tremendous and radical change - departing significantly from God's creation ordinances - that they threaten to break down godly relationships, marriages, family life and even communities. There is a need to arrest this destructive and deteriorating trend.

The challenge is for individual believers and congregations to understand and apply what God and the Bible teach about male and female sexuality, the nature and purpose of sex, the roots and consequences of sexual sin, and how to flee or recover from sexual wrongdoing. This one-day seminar is a frank and discerning look at the sexual revolution from God's point of view, and the way forward to an appropriate Christian response.


Reclaiming the Ground
(one-day seminar)

The Fall of Man soon after his creation, resulted in significant, even eternal, consequences -- to Man, the Land and Creation itself. Sin entered the world, and separated all mankind from God. Disease, danger, destruction, defeat, disgrace, destitution, poverty and death followed. At the same time, the ground became cursed, and further defiled by subsequent sin and pollution.

This seminar addresses the specific issue of defilement and curse on land and buildings, and how they may be restored to their rightful and beneficial use. Participants get to learn the biblical concept of holy ground, causes and consequences of defilement and curse, and how defiled land and buildings can be reclaimed for godly use, before ending the seminar with a challenge to total consecration in God based on a model from Scripture.


Making Sense of Your Emotions
(one-day seminar)

Positive emotions are good and to be desired, whereas negative emotions must be identified, processed and released in godly ways.

This seminar helps participants to better understand the dynamics of their emotional makeup as human persons, and how to have a better handle on managing their emotions for positive benefit - especially negative and destructive emotions such as fear, worry and anxiety.

The seminar also explores the link between the lack of godly nurture and a healthy personal identity and emotional damage - particularly the consequences of spiritual, psychological and biological sicknesses and diseases. Insights from the Bible help to identify key steps that can be taken by wounded individuals to return to emotional wholeness and health.


Embracing Your Identity and Destiny
(one-day seminar)

God's ideal plan for man from the creation of the world is that we know, love and serve Him all the days of our lives. He put in place the foundations for godly relationships - of marriage, home and loving family structures - both to reveal and to establish His love in the hearts of His children.

Man is thus born for both identity and destiny. IDENTITY is the knowledge and quality of being a special, unique person in God's creation. And true identity, including all that such identity brings, comes only from God who created man. DESTINY, on the other hand, defines life purpose and gives it its true meaning. Destiny gives a reason and explanation for a person's existence, and ultimately fulfilment in life comes from the fulfilment of one's personal destiny. True success follows obedience in outworking this destiny.

The reality of our human experience in most cases, however, is quite the opposite to God's ideal for man. Sin issues rising from a neglect, absence or lack of godly nurture have separated man from God, from himself and from others - resulting in pain, damage and dysfunction in spirit, soul and body. Unresolved, these personal and spiritual conflicts hinder breakthroughs into success, fruitfulness and relationship with God.

This one-day seminar is a call to hear God - to return to the identity and destiny in Him. To return to true identity and destiny in God is to return to living in godly success, abundance, fruitfulness, fulfilment, divine health and wholeness. To return to true identity and destiny is to experience the reality of John 10:10 and Jeremiah 29:11.


Embracing the Father-Heart of God
(one-day seminar)

God is love! This is the definitive Word of God in 1 John 4:16. No other creature in heaven or on earth has the love that God has. In His immense love, God created us so that He could delight in us. He expects us to be able to reciprocate this by loving Him with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our mind; and in a similar way, to love our families and neighbours as ourselves (Matthew 22:37-39).

God is typified as a father: He is Father to Jesus, and also our Heavenly Father (Hebrews 2:11). He wants us all to be in His big family—the family of God—where He is the loving Father to us, and we all brothers and sisters in Christ.

Unfortunately, through the Fall of Man, sin came into the world and spoilt all relationships with suspicion, jealousy, hatred, fear and shame. Not only do we not love our neighbours as ourselves—as God wills—we may not have experienced caring and loving families because we may not have had perfect parents placed over us to represent God.

As a result, we grow up with problems and difficulties rooted in insecurity, rejection, aggression or withdrawal; we have a God-shaped void in our hearts which leaves us unfulfilled and wanting.

The Father-Heart of God seminar teaches what a perfect Father and perfect sons (daughters) of God should be, by studying His love: “the love that asks no questions, the love that stands the test; when laid upon the altar, the dearest and the best.” It also explores why we fail to know God’s love, why we struggle so much in our relationships, and finally how we can begin to experience God’s love.

As we accept God as He is and receive His love with child-like trust, God will remove our negative attitudes and satisfy our deepest longings—which is to love and be loved.


Freedom from Generational Iniquity
(one-day seminar)


Out of Black Hole of Depression
(one-day seminar)

We all experience difficulties in life that leave us feeling moody or depressed. In most cases these "mood swings" pass as the precipitating problems are resolved or overcome. However, in some cases, these moody feelings persist and develop into episodes of depression.

As a "whole-person" condition involving the spirit, soul and body, severe or prolonged depression can adversely affect a person's thoughts, health, appetite, sleep, work, relationships, behaviour and more. It is not easily willed or wished away and sufferers often find it difficult to "pull themselves together" and get better.

The good news is that depression can be treated and overcome. Appropriate treatment coupled with an understanding of the spiritual - as well as psychological - roots and nature of depression, and awareness of the signs and triggers can greatly help a person towards recovery and healing in God.

This seminar offers a wholistic and practical Christian approach to understanding and overcoming depression.


Breaking the Occult Bondage
(one-day seminar)

Despite the proliferation of material available in print and on different kinds of media, much uncertainty—even confusion—exists among Christians over the issue of the Occult. Compounding the problem of understanding are the many myths and popular ideas often associated with the issue.

Precisely because of this, it has become easier for the enemy to cloud the issue and further confuse and deceive unsuspecting believers concerning the real dangers and consequences of participating in the Occult; especially the dangers of deep spiritual bondage, oppression and serious mental problems in their lives.

Bondage to the Occult, whether due to voluntary causes or involuntary causes, is one of the major reasons why many believers encounter great difficulty in drawing close to God and living an intimate relationship with Him.

And so long as believers remain deceived and ignorant of the devices of the enemy, they will continue to be bound and limited in their freedom, effectiveness and fruitfulness in the Kingdom of God.

This Breaking the Occult Bondage seminar is an attempt to provide believers with a biblical understanding and response to the subject of the Occult. The seminar teaches that knowledge of the truth—as revealed in the Word of God—and obedience to that Word, are what will ultimately set believers free from the consequences of bondage to the Occult.

The seminar examines biblical teaching on the Spirit Realms; the Nature, Characteristics and Manifestations of the Occult; the Dangers and Consequences of conscious participation in the Occult; and concludes by offering vital keys to Breaking Free from the Bondage to the Occult.


Control, Domination and Manipulation
(one-day seminar)

GOD made man to have a loving, trusting relationship with Him and with each other. To demonstrate His love and trust He gave mankind the gift of freewill.

This gift of freewill is a sacred privilege; a privilege that God will not rescind as it would violate our individuality and humanity. Even when it comes down to the matter of eternal life or death, God does not compel, but with gentleness and in diverse ways encourages, persuades and coaxes for a positive response.

Jesus gave His life on the Cross for us; He did this willingly so that the power of Satan can be broken and the way opened for man to choose eternal life, and to have control over his own will and destiny.

Satan, on the other hand, is out to rob, to steal and to kill. He compels man to sin, to anger, to manipulate others so that he can have his own way in the family, in society and even in church. He does this subtly such that if we are not vigilant, we can fall victim to his cunning devices.

Man thus learns to dominate, control and manipulate others or is himself dominated, controlled and manipulated such that personal rights are deprived. Consequently, lives are made miserable, as relationships with God and other people are damaged.

God desires to see His people living in freedom and wholeness, and He loves to set them free from yielding their freewill to others, and from violating the freewill of others.

This seminar on Domination, Control and Manipulation looks at the gift of freewill; right relationships and the dangers of domination, control and manipulation. The origins, root causes, and characteristics of this behaviour will be examined, to enable participants to identify and expose its presence in individuals and churches.

Defeating Anxieties, Fears and Phobias
(one-day seminar)

Rational fears are vital for human survival. However, when these fear responses become irrational, chronic, crippling or debilitating they can result in a personal dysfunction including illness and sicknesses like mental illness and the lack of emotional well-being.

The challenges and demands of today's high-tech, fast-paced and very stressful world do little to allevate our fear and anxiety responses. In fact, the Bible warns of times of increasing stress and evil in the coming days. There is thus an urgent need to arm believers with biblical truth, wisdom and knowledge in order to defeat the destructive effects of anxieties, fears and phobias

This seminar affirms the healing power of God to release and set free believers who are struggling with the torment of anxieties, fears and phobias, and provides helpful insights into understanding the nature and roots of these issues and how to overcome them in daily living.


Rightly Handling Loss and Grief
(one-day seminar)

During the course of our lives, many of us will be touched and affected by dramatic, life-altering events. Not least of these dramatic events is the loss of a loved one, whether expected or unexpected.

As a response to personal loss, grief can vary from person to person. Even so, any significant loss can throw a person into emotional turmoil or dysfunction, resulting in some cases in prolonged distress.

Such unresolved, prolonged grief can open the door to spiritual, emotional and physical problems that potentialy can paralyze a person’s well-being and spiritual development. Therefore, it is important for us—while we have the opportunity—to know and understand how to handle grief and bereavement when they touch us, and how to support and minister to others who have been touched likewise.

This seminar provides helpful insights and understanding into the journey through grief and beyond. It examines loss as a normal part of life, and how different people respond to such loss. This is followed by a walk through the grief process and its different aspects before concluding with God’s words of truth and comfort.


Reclaiming Families and Generations
(one-day seminar)

Hurting people will go on hurting people! Thus when two adults with unresolved personal and spiritual issues come together in marriage and start a family, the potential for marriage conflict and family dysfunction is increased many times over.

The rise in incidences of separation, divorce, domestic violence and juvenile dysfunction among Christian couples and families, is growing evidence of this truth. Sad to say, this picture of couples and families in pain is so far from the plan and purposes of God for couples, marriage and families.

Despite the many difficulties, obstacles and challenges that stand in the way, it is possible in God to heal and restore broken families and generations - provided the individuals concerned are willing to address and resolve the root issues and causes of their conflicts in the first place.

This seminar provides participants with a biblical understanding of God's call and purpose for families and generations, and offers spiritual and practical lessons in the healing and restoration of individuals, families and generations to God's ideal for them.


Understanding and Overcoming Rejection
(one-day seminar)

We live in a world full of rejected people – rejected by parents, families, and societies - and rejected people are deeply hurt and wounded people. More often than not, they are rejected for the way they look, the way they think and behave, their racial origins, gender, sexual orientation, or their social status in life.

In fact, how we perceive a particular person - or group of people - is often coloured by our positive or negative encounters and experiences with such people. As a result, our perceptions of people or people groups can be warm and enthusiastic, or they can be biased, prejudiced, distorted and skewed.

We consciously or unconsciously admire, respect, accept and are drawn to people who are successful, good-looking, smart, intelligent, and interesting, while dismissing all others as in the crowd as plain, ordinary, bland, stupid, good-for-nothing, or useless.

Children and young people are particularly vulnerable to rejection. They are hungry for love, affirmation and acceptance - among their peers but especially from their parents. If this is not forthcoming, there is a good likelihood that such children and youth will grow up with a love deficit in their lives, only to manifest the fruit of their own rejection in their adult lives.

The good news is that rejection can be healed and overcome. On the cross, Jesus exchanged our pain and rejection for His healing and acceptance. This seminar helps participants to understand the work and nature of rejection, their characteristics and manifestations, roots and causes, and offers helpful keys to help victims break free from the deep wounds of their rejection.
