  2. What Prayer Ministry is offered by His Whole House?

    A:

    His Whole House offers a variety of types of prayer ministry, including: 

    • Individual Prayer Ministry One-on-one counseling.
    • Couples and Family Prayer Ministry: Receive counseling as a couple or family group with one of our prayer ministers.
    • Intensive Prayer Ministry: An "Intensive" includes 12-hours of private prayer counseling and is typically done on an individual basis, though couples may also be considered.  This is scheduled three hours a day for four consecutive days or as otherwise arranged by request.  We recommend using the remainder of each day for rest and reflection.
    • Regular Sessions: For those who wish to regularly receive prayer ministry the sessions are usually 1.5 hours long.
    • Skype Sessions:  We will consider requests for Skype counseling on a case-by-case basis.  If agreed upon, a Skype session typically is 1.5 hours long.
    • Heart Check-ups: These are offered for established clients who have completed the recommended number of suggested sessions and have agreed to have a regular session (consisting of 1.5 hours each) once every three or six months.  

     

  3. What is biblical counseling?

    A:

    Biblical counseling is using principles, values and teachings found in the Bible.  Jesus Christ is at the center of all that we do.  The Bible is informative and also gives us guidance on how to take action when helping people with various issues such as depression, anxiety, fears, pain etc... God's Word not only directs our counseling process and purpose, but it also brings renewed hope, restoration, life purpose and even a sense of destiny to our clients.  The scripture says one of the titles for Jesus Christ is "Counselor".  Our prayer counselors rely upon the guidance of Holy Spirit to bring wonderful life bringing counsel from God so that they discover healing and freedom!



  4. What is Inner Healing?

    A:

    Inner Healing refers to the ministry of Holy Spirit to bring deep inward healing primarily with restoring our emotional and spiritual health.  We rely heavily on the presence of Jesus Christ, through the Spirit, to act as the Great Physician.  True healing is always from the hand of God to the heart of the person.

    Inner Healing is the healing of the inner person, the spirit and the deep mind. Inner healing is the healing of the wounds created by the sins of others as well as personal sinful choices. Inner healing cam also include the releasing of bondages, addictions, compulsive behaviors and substance abuse. Inner healing frees people from pain and releases them from anxiety and depression. Inner healing often helps substantially with marriage counseling. Inner healing is God revealing His presence and love to the inner self. Inner healing is removing the footholds that allow demonic infestation. Inner healing is God filling the empty desolate places in our lives. Inner healing is also God working deeply in a person to bring forth the true self.

    His Whole House sees merit and truth in many of the mainstream approaches to inner healing.  We endeavor to work with the Spirit of God in inner healing utilizing ministry tools as the Lord leads.

  5. Am I too old for prayer ministry to make a difference?

    A:

    No!  It's never too late to pursue healing for yourself and your children!

  6. Bitter Root Judgments, what are they?

    A:

    Bitter Root judgments usually originate in our families of origin and are often expressed in close relationships later in life.  Children judge their parents and/or siblings for wounds suffered during the course of life together.  When we bitterly judge the heart or motivation of another person we plant a seed of bitter judgment in our own life which operates like a curse pronounced over ourselves.  Thus, we are not only injured by the original offense, but also by our response to it.  As time goes on this unconfessed sin develops into a root system in our hearts.  

  7. Can children receive prayer ministry too?

    A:

    Children may receive  prayer ministry.  It is most beneficial when parents are also involved.  The earlier in life we learn to apply Godly principles the healthier lives we are able to live!

  8. Can I bring someone to my prayer ministry session?

    A:

    It is often helpful to have someone attend sessions as a support person.  When selecting such a person make sure it is someone you trust completely.  Sessions touch upon issues of a personal nature and you do not want just anyone to be party to the information.  Discussion with your Prayer Minister about a support person must occur prior to your scheduled appointment.  

  9. Do you do deliverance?

    A:

    We define deliverance as the ministry of evicting demonic intruders from someone's life.  We are not solely a deliverance ministry, but much deliverance does occur as a result of the normal process of inner healing prayer ministry.

    His Whole House is aware that many good Bible believing Christians do not believe that Christians can have a demon or demons. Some see differences between demon possession vs. influence, harassment or demonic affliction.  Setting semantics aside, we see that Christians can be under some type of demonic force or persecution if the legal right exists (due to unforgiveness etc.). Once the legal right is removed that influence is no longer possible.  A person who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior can not be possessed by demons as they are already possessed by Jesus!


  10. How did Green Tree get its name?

    A:

    Teaching and training by the prophets of old and itinerant rabbis like Jesus and Paul - was often done in the shade of a large tree.  Preferably a living tree so that it had leaves that would provide shade - those spots were often referred to as the "green tree."  Those training sessions took on a flavor of the students really wanting to become like their teachers, and the training there wound up being more extensive and more advanced than the typical Sabbath teachings that happened at church.  Because Elijah House "Advanced School" and the internship has taken on that flavor,  the intensive two week internship has taken on that name.


  11. How do I become a prayer minister?

    A:

    If you wish to become a prayer minister we recommend you begin by taking the Elijah House School of Ministry Course 201.  This course teaches, models and provides opportunity to practice prayer ministry to fellow students according to the Word of God and in the power and sensitivity of Christ through the Holy Spirit.  You also have opportunity to experience personal healing yourself!  

    His Whole House offers Course 201 at different times during the year.     Learn more about Course 201

    If you complete Course 201 and continue to feel that the Lord has called you to be a prayer minister the next step would be to continue on with Course 202 and to discuss mentoring and internship possibilities with His Whole House staff.

    We also recommend the following resources: 

  12. How do I sign up for prayer ministry?

    A:

    If you are interested in receiving prayer ministry you may contact us via telephone 281.358.5361  or complete this Prayer Ministry Request form.    


  13. Inner Vows, what are they?

    A:

    An inner vow is a determination set by the mind and heart into all the being in early life.  Vows we make currently also affect us, but an inner vow is one set into us as children and usually forgotten.  There are good and helpful vows as well as destructive ones.

    The distinctive mark of an inner vow is it resists the normal maturation process.  They resist change and we do not grow out of them.  Having forgotten them, we are unaware they exist or could have any effect.  


  14. Spiritual Family Guidelines for Small Groups

    A:

    Accountability:  For accountability to flourish, we commit to create an environment of trust and confidentiality.  Issues and struggles shared within the small group will not be shared outside the group.

    Belonging:  In order to create a safe place of belonging, we commit to never say anything that would embarrass our belittle other members of the small group, but instead show respect and honor for one another.

    Care:  A primary responsibility of community is being willing to be available to assist when another is in need.  We will do our best to be available to provide care for one another.

  15. Spiritual Growth in Small Groups

    A:

    Intimacy with God:  Prayer and biblically based special special interest topics are the key elements to a small group.  We also commit to help one another grow in our own relationship with God through the work of the Holy Spirit. 

    Community with Believers: The atmosphere of a small group should encourage openness, transparency and authenticity among believers.  We commit to creating an environment where people can be free to be themselves. 

    Influence with Others:  We recognize that one of the goals of our small group is to pull others in by the principle of attraction through the Word and our testimony.  This allows others to experience spiritual family, love and growth.

  16. What is a prayer minister or prayer counselor?

    A:

    Prayer ministers (sometimes also called prayer counselors) are lay persons who have received training by His Whole House, completed mentoring and internship programs (as approved by Elijah House), and have applied and experienced their own personal healing through receiving prayer ministry themselves.    

  17. What is a Small Group Series?

    A:

    A Small Group Series is either live or DVD teaching series with group participation.  Some examples of Small Group Series we teach are: Healing the Hearts of Our Children, Healing Trauma, Overcoming Anger, Identity & Destiny...  see more. 

  18. What is meant by "a Green Tree"?

    A:

    Green Tree is the name of part of the Elijah House Internship program.  It is held throughout the world.  

    Green Tree is a gathering of teachers, supervisors and Elijah House interns for advanced teaching on topics concerning prayer ministry, practice of and training in prayer ministry under the supervision of a seasoned prayer minister.
  19. What is parental inversion?

    A:

    Parental Inversion is the term we use to describe what happens whenever one or both parents are so immature or ineffective that a child takes responsibility to parent his or her parent(s).  This inverts the God-given order.  Parents are to care for children, providing a safe and secure place in which the child can be free to be a child.  Chores and responsibilities are good training for children, but he weight of care and responsibility for the family should rest on the parents' shoulders, never on the children.  

  20. What is prayer ministry?

    A:

    Prayer ministry is another name for prayer counseling or biblical counseling.  It is biblical counseling or ministry using principles, values and teachings found in the Bible.  We at His Whole House rely upon the guidance of Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ to help people during ministry sessions.  Prayer, at its most basic, is talking to God.  During a prayer ministry session we use prayer to invite Holy Spirit to bring healing to areas where we are in need.
