How does it run?
Usually over ten weekly evening sessions. The ideal is to participate in a locally run course because the worship, the teaching and the prayer in small groups are all essential elements of the healing process. However, you can buy the workbook for yourself and use it for private study, taking as much time as you need and receiving prayer in church or with a prayer triplet or prayer partner. It can also be used by home or study groups provided you include prayer ministry.
