For more than 20 years we have been praying with people in the Renewal for inner healing realizing that God’s peace was never permanent. Change would occur for awhile but never permanently. It always seemed to be a “temporary fix”.

In 2005 I attended the National Catholic Charismatic Convention in Chicago. At that convention Dr. Ed Smith was a presenter on Theophostic Prayer. Along with Fr. John H. Hampsche and many other Charismatics we heard how Dr. Smith was experiencing Jesus permanently healing His people through this new way of praying for the wounded, one memory at a time.

The following is taken directly from a flyer put out by the Theophostic Prayer Ministry:

. . . “Theophostic Prayer Ministry is NOT

It is not advice giving, diagnosing problems, or sharing opinions or insight.

Theophostic Prayer Ministry

(TPM) Defined: “Intentional and focused prayer with the desired outcome of an authentic encounter with the presence of Christ, resulting in mind renewal and subsequent transformed life.”

What Theo (God) Phostic (Light) is

It is a ministry of prayer that is Christ-centered and God reliant for its direction and outcome. It is encouraging a person to discover and expose what he or she believes that is at the root of the emotional pain in his or her life; and then encouraging him or her to have an encounter with the Holy Spirit through prayer, thus allowing the Lord to reveal His truth to the wounded person’s heart and mind.

It is about an expected outcome of complete resolution of the lie-based pain in each specific memory as it is replaced with the peace of Christ. It is about lasting fruit that is exemplified through a transformed life bringing glory to Christ. “

The Light of Christ Prayer Ministry has three trained prayer teams available to minister in this form of prayer. We have been praying with people in and out of the Renewal for the past three years and seeing Jesus permanently heal people of lifelong wounds, one memory at a time. Lives are being restored, minds are being renewed.
