Inner Healing Prayer Sessions

Inner Healing Prayer Sessions
"Healing is an essential dimension of the apostolic mission and of Christianity. When understood at a sufficiently deep level, this expresses the entire content of redemption." Pope Benedict XVI 
At St. John the Baptist, we desire every person in our parish and in our city to experience the healing love of Jesus. Inner healing prayer ministry is a way by which we can encounter this healing love.
In an inner healing prayer session, a team of two people will pray with you to receive whatever healing God chooses to give you. You will be given the opportunity to use prayers which will help you to open up more deeply to God. All of the members of the Healing Prayer teams have been trained in in-depth prayer ministry by the John Paul II Healing Center in Tallahassee, FL. 
Please contact Jess Jenkins at [email protected] to schedule a session.
