Guided Prayer

What is Guided Prayer?

Guided Prayer is an inner healing ministry of Christ Church.

Who is eligible to receive Guided Prayer?

Guided Prayer is available to those who desire to gain freedom so they can move toward reaching their full potential. Through the help of the Holy Spirit, participants identify and process through unresolved issues, current non-biblical mindsets and/or wounds from the past.

  • Guided Prayer is NOT counseling, but is a Bible-based, Holy Spirit led prayer ministry.
  • Through encounters with God and his truth, many people experience significant breakthrough in specific areas of need.

How do I identify areas to address during a Guided Prayer appointment?

  • Do you experience strong emotions that seem out of place?
  • Do you struggle with fear, anxiety, panic, phobias?
  • Do you desire to overcome unwanted cycles that seem to hold you back?
  • Do you continue to feel negative emotions when you think of a past memory?

Private sessions are offered with a trained prayer facilitator and a team of intercessors. Appointments are approximately 1 – 2 hours in length.

To schedule your confidential session, contact: Pastoral Care Ministries 973-783-1010 Ext. 285.
