THE POWER OF PRAYER in Therapy, Counseling, and Coaching

Should prayer be part of therapy, counseling and coaching? Counseling, coaching and therapy are prayers. There are prayers in action, love and devotion. Without prayer there would be no universe. There would be no love, forgiveness and healing. Without God, there would be no tears and cries to heaven, laughter, joy and celebration. There would be no gratitude or thankfulness.

Prayer creates awareness. It seeks forgiveness for sin, heals illnesses, mends broken minds and hearts. Prayer delivers when all else fails and darkness fills the soul. Every human being falls short, but prayer unifies us with holiness and holiness heals. So, why shouldn't everything that we do, including this endeavor, be sanctified and raised up. The world is a painful place to be lost in. Through prayer, we are lifted up, cleansed and made holy.

Prayer Requests

As part of my long-standing commitment to the power of prayer, I invite you, according to your need, to let me pray for you and/or someone that you feel can use it. Every person that I have prayed for has benefited. All that you have to do is submit your name and your prayer need. Your first name will be posted, with your permission, in this section, so that other people may pray for you. If you do not wish to have your name posted, I understand that and your anonymity will be respected. All that I ask is that you keep me informed as to how my prayers are or are not affecting you. This is a research and spiritual study project. If you wish for me to pray for you in a particular spiritual tradition, please let me know your choice.

Healing Cures

Did you know that a flower, certain sounds, certain foods, certain lights, certain music and color can send you healing energy? Even the earth, trees, sky, air, neighborhoods, environments can heal you. Everything contains transformative healing energies and if you can open yourself up to receive these healing energies, you will be cured. Did you know that within you, there are powerful healing energies that can heal you and others? These powerful healing energies need to be recognized, acknowledged and developed. You can develop and enhance your own healing powers. But first, it may help you to pray to God for his assistance and healing empowerment. Your purpose for healing others and yourself is intended to do the greatest amount of good to the greatest number of people and situations.

In the New Testament, the disciples were empowered from tongues of fire, delivered by the holy spirit, to do all manner of healings. In the Old Testament, while the children of Israel wandered in the desert, they were protected from all disease. This is some of the biblical evidence of healings that take place from spiritual energy. The hands on technique used in spiritual disciplines show particular effectiveness. In the course of a typical day, I am called upon to do several different types of healing. When someone calls me from their place of work, complaining of some dysfunction, I promote long distance healing through the telephone. One woman became upset because her memory had failed her, on the job. By using long distance, telephone healing methods, I was able to restore her memory functioning and sense of well-being. A young athlete complained of back pain. By placing my hands on the afflicted muscle, I was able to transfer rapid energy to that body part. The pain disappeared and the afflicted person smiled, while noticing the feeling of heat in his lower back.

His mother, who was seated in front of me, complained of extreme fatigue. I told her to place the palms of her hands over her eyes. After a few seconds, her fatigue disappeared. Her other son, seated also in my presence, was experiencing unpleasant mental symptoms. I was seated about 10 feet from him and I asked them to focus his attention on my raised palm. My fingers were set in the El Shaddai position (hand greeting between Spock and Captain Kirk). After a few seconds, I asked the young man if he could feel the heat from my palm. His face opened wide with a big smile as he pointed to his left front forehead and said, "Yes! Wow, I feel it right here." Needless to say, his mental distress disappeared and was replaced by an uplifting mood.

This healing energy can be facilitated by anyone who desires the intention to heal. If the universe is filled with healing energy, deliberately focusing it on any person or situation, should transfer that energy. It doesn't matter if the person is close at hand or far away. It does help if the person is willing and open to receiving that healing energy. Some time ago, I was confronted by a woman of suspicious and distrusting nature, who claimed to be dying from lung cancer. I knew that she didn't trust me as a person. I also knew that the healing power of the holy spirit is independent of any individual, including myself. I asked the woman if she would like me to perform a healing prayer and ritual for her disease. Since she claimed to have only less than a year to live, she felt she had nothing to lose. So, she consented to give it a try.

There were several other close relatives of the woman in the room. I knew everyone there was hoping and rooting for the woman's cure. I didn't promise anything. But, I felt absolutely certain that God would answer this prayer. Everyone wanted her to get well. I had been doing these types of prayer filled healings for many years and felt absolutely confident that God would help me in this endeavor. The healing power of God is awesome and as I initiated the ritual procedure, I could feel His Presence enter into me and pass on into the woman's body and spirit. In that room, everyone else's attention and energy were focused on this woman's healing. That momentary transfer of healing power healed her cancer and to this day she is well. I have also done long distance healing prayers for her suspicious nature. All reports seem to indicate that she has seriously begun to eliminate her negative projections onto other people. She mentioned to her son that she was no longer seeing things in black and white terms. She was beginning to notice the middle ground gray between the extremes.

Does prayer work? Yes! Absolutely. But sometimes the holy spirit, the healing power of the universe, the Tao, the chi etc. etc. has the intelligence to test the healer's patience in the process of cure. It is recommended that the one who is initiating the healing and the person receiving the healing, become unattached to the outcome. This is an old principal, that I learned a long time ago. It is something that has to be relearned from time to time. You can set the intention in motion, but, the outcome is in the hands of the higher healing power. I do recommend that whenever you wish to initiate a healing process that you call to your assistance every available spiritual and physical resource,
