Treat Yourself to Restoration Prayer Ministry!
Are you at risk? Do you need RPM? Restoration Prayer Ministry is the most thorough method I have found to remove blockages in a person's life and to empower them to fulfill their God given potential with joy. We are actually enabled by God to see past the surface problem to the hidden roots and we invite Him to touch every problem area. As a prayer minister, I am addressing spiritual root causes vs. counseling surface symptoms.
The main reason that you need RPM is that none of us can see our own blind spots. Therefore, having a prophet to help you see your open doors and blocks is key to knowing what to pray about, to renounce, to confess and what to break the power of.
Restoration Prayer Ministry is more effective than any natural modality and it is more thorough. Jesus is transforming us in the spiritual realm. You can't heal your heart with your head. By the power of God's Holy Spirit, we address all possible spiritual and psychological causes. We are far more thorough than any ministry I am aware of. For instance, we pray the most thorough forgiveness prayers over every spiritual block, not just one way, but five ways.
Restoration Prayer Ministers use methods that not everyone
speaking healing "from their conception on," loosing and
binding, bringing their selfishness to the cross to be
crucified, confessing one to another, repentance with
restitution, words of knowledge and wisdom, prophetic
visions and dreams, healing through worship and dance etc.
Restoration Prayer Ministers impart a balance of the Word of God and faith in motion. I think of a prayer counseling minister as a liberator with true grit, who gets involved, who will love the unlikely to life and who will takes risks to help a lost lonely heart find safety in the love of God. It is about demonstrating faith to bring someone into the very presence of God, right here and now, so that they can be healed, forgiven, set free, restored and transformed in whatever way God wants to do it. Romans 12:1-2
Restoration Prayer Ministry is a passion to know the heart of God and His purposes for a person, knowing that the secret of healing is to do whatever our loving Father says to do. It is a compassion for people that constrains us to say "Yes" when Jesus decides to set the captive free, even if He does it in ways that we have never heard of before. It is destroying the works of the devil so that people can be filled with the Holy Spirit in every area of their life. 1 John 3:8b, Ephesians 5:18
It is not "behavior modification" or just learning to "act more like Jesus." It is coming against "religious counterfeit spirits" that have replaced their "first love" and true worship in spirit and truth, with "performance for the approval of God by works." It is receiving the righteousness that Jesus gave us as a gift (Romans 5) and believing Him when He says that we are made holy, blameless and righteous by His work on the cross. (Ephesians 1) It is demonstrating how to allow Jesus to live a holy life in our bodies. (Galatians 2:20)
It is not only intercessory prayer but actually helping to carry the burden, spending time with the rebellious, hugging the leper, letting the prostitute wash our feet, believing in the most unlikely, going into the houses of "gentiles," feeding the hungry, teaching those in prison, praising the Centurion for his faith and suffering from false accusation for being friends with the heathen.
For me, it included making the commitment to be trained up in the Elijah House School of Prayer Counseling Ministry so that I would have more of a diagnostic knowledge to balance my intuitive and prophetic insights. It was studying to show myself approved for months and becoming a healed person who could partner with God in healing people.
Sometimes, it is going into places that are against the
like finding that one lost
sheep in a bar, skid row, a casino, a cult or across the
tracks. It can be following God's call when you have not
been to seminary, you are a woman, or were an addict,
murderer or thief. It may look like breaking the "rules"
but it is not rebellion against God. It is a holy war
against "religious legalism;" a defiance against a
spirit of control that says only perfect performers can
be transformed into prayer ministers.
powerful thing Restoration Prayer Ministers do is to let
someone know that God believes in them,
right now, with unconditional love, before any one else
has any hope for them. Restoration Prayer Ministers
have to see
people as God sees them and loved their slumbering
spirits to life. Maybe they are captives who act like
alcoholics, crack heads, adulterers or murderers today
but they may be called to be raised up as missionaries
tomorrow. We have to be able to say to them what no one
else will say, in truth and in love.
The secret agenda of Restoration Prayer Ministers is to bring every selfish fleshly structure to death on the cross. We, ourselves, might not have come to Jesus, if we had known that God wanted to kill our pride, wreck our schedules, take away every crutch, our self-centered ways and give us His broken heart for others instead. We have to learn to rest His opinion of us, in His ability to live His life through us and to be satisfied with Jesus as our source. As we used to say in Campus Crusade, "From the most sophisticated heathen to the most ignorant college professor, everyone is hungry for Jesus."
Who is a
Restoration Prayer Minister? a soul liberator?
It may not be the one
with the great business card, videos or church growth.
The prayer ministers of tomorrow may be the ones with
tattoos, piercings, crazy hair and dress. They are not
afraid of sinners, they know their language and they
will do whatever it takes to destroy the works of
darkness. They are willing to admit their own need for
ministry and receive a new heart. They know demons are
real, that deliverance is for today and they pray a
little differently, but demons are afraid of them and
bow their knees to the Name of Jesus.
