The tile of this web site : DEVELOPING A CONVERSATIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, came about after I read the book entitled “Hearing God” by Dallas Willard. Subsequently the book by Pete Greig entitled “How To Hear God – a simple guide for normal people” expanded the importance of learning to listen and to hear God – the side where we don’t do all the talking. The goal of Pray4Healing is to provide resources and teaching on Prayer. The primary teachings are directed toward healing prayer but also included are teachings to help us to listen, learn and pray the way we really feel. It is known as the power of the simple prayer. Dwillard.org has made available various DVD’s. Renovare organization also has shared many talks of Dallas and these can be accessed on the Dallas Willard page on our site.
In 2004 three medical doctors who believed and taught about the Grace of God and His healing power presented at multiple sessions to introduce “Physicians, Patients, and Prayer”. This was the foundation of the efforts for this site. Here is the story behind the gathering of the Medical Doctors: GOD, HEALING, THE CHURCH, AND ME.
Along with their teaching there is a course called ALPHA ( developed at Holy Trinity, Brompton, a Church of England parish) which can be classified as a “back to basics of Christianity”. One of the sessions is entitled “Does God Heal Today”. Thankfully the answer is YES.
Here are the links for the presentations by the three medical doctors mentioned above:
Pray and Let God be God (Dr.’s name withheld on request)
Approaching Prayer in a Medical Setting Dr. Tom Newman (retired Internal Medicine)
Healing Prayer – On Holy Ground Dr. Mark Sheehan (retired Cardiologist)
Information and teachings have been obtained from sources of Protestant and Catholic teachings. The primary sources are from the Alpha Course, Max Lucado (Author and pastor of Oakhills Church -an evangelical protestant church in San Antonio, TX), Christian Healing Ministries (Directed by Judith MacNutt (with the late Dr. Francis MacNutt) which is involved with many denominations and offer a wide variety of teachings and conferences) , and Christian Healing Institute (The Rev. Kathleen Christopher, Anglican Priest from Falls Church, VA.) and also from web sites such as Thoughts About God. Bible Study Tools has a page available for Bible Verses on Healing.
