Elijah House prayer ministry is a type of biblical counseling that is pastoral in nature. Prayer Ministry Training Course 201 lays the foundations for healing and transformation, both for the students themselves, and for equipping the saints for inner healing and the work of binding up broken hearts (Isaiah 61:1)
We teach foundational principles and tools for dealing with personal and interpersonal issues. Students learn to trace bad fruit to bitter roots formed in the heart (Hebrews 12:15), most often in childhood. They learn how to cut off bitter roots at the cross and bring repentance and inner healing to the heart. Transformation is the goal of this work — to raise up healthy Christians in their own communities.
School lessons include core Elijah House teachings that help us understand how bitter roots are formed and how broken hearts can be healed through the biblical process of repentance and forgiveness. Tools of prayer ministry are taught in this series of lessons, as well as conditions that influence how best to minister. There are 25 lessons in all, as well as two demonstrations with volunteers from the school. Practical experience is gained through small group ministry time with guidance from experienced leaders. Students are provided with a study guide containing lesson notes, references, and enrichment articles.
For preparation to attend Prayer Ministry Training Course 201, we recommend an intensive week of prayer ministry with a gifted prayer minister in order to identify latent unresolved emotional wounds and inner healing issues. We also suggest that you begin reading the following books in advance of attending the school: the three books of the “Transformation Series,” Restoring the Christian Family, and Deliverance and Inner Healing. A good place to begin is the first book in the “Transformation Series” — Transforming the Inner Man.
As a prospective student, we strongly urge you to surround yourself with a personal support group. This group should not only include intercessors who will pray for you on a consistent basis, but also your spouse and close friends whom you can trust to tell you the truth in love. Personal support groups model accountability, and should be foundational in your personal walk with God. Within a small group you can grow and flourish as an individual and learn to be transparent and trusting in close spiritual relationships.
This school will be facilitated by Molly McNamara. She is the Founder of His Whole House Ministries and is an Elijah House trained Prayer Minister. The school format will cover a five month period and meet on Sunday afternoons. A benefit of this format is that lessons and practicums are provided at a slower pace which provides the student easier assimilation with close mentoring by an assigned small group leader during the entire curriculum. Personal support groups model accountability and within a small group you can grow and flourish as an individual and learn to be transparent and trusting in close spiritual relationships. It has been our experience that the format also offers opportunities to form lasting bonds with fellow Christians from the local region. Our 2018 Winter Course 201 (begins January 2018) will be held at His Whole House Ministries in Kingwood, Texas. Come join us and experience God's empowering presence to bring inner healing to His children and transform their lives!
Elijah House schools provide substantial training and experience in the Elijah House model of prayer ministry which is a form of pastoral counseling. We are not an accredited institution offering college credit. However, for those pursuing degree programs, college accreditation may be available through their college, graduate program, or seminary. Many higher education institutions acknowledge and give credit for prior learning which can include work experience and non-accredited courses like this one. Contact your registrar and ask about their Prior Learning Assessment (PLA), Recognized Prior Learning (RPL) or Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) programs.
