What is Theophostic Prayer Ministry?
The term theophostic comes from two New Testament Greek words Theo (God) and Phos (light). It is intentional and focused prayer that is Christ-centered and God reliant for its direction and outcome.
It is encouraging a person to discover and expose the beliefs that are at the root of the emotional pain in his or her life; and then facilitating 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 healing the past to redeem the present. It is about lasting fruit that is exemplified through a transformed life bringing glory to Christ.
Messiah sets people free. Free from life-long fears, shame, false guilt, anxiety, hopelessness, stress, worry, despair, and emotional pain.
From Rev. Mary L. Haley Connect2Christ Church:
“Theophostic ministry is not counseling… it is a prayer ministry. It is about identifying painful events and emotions in our lives where we can unravel the wrong beliefs we have embraced. It’s in this place we connect to Christ’s Presence, making Jesus the center experientially and relationally.
Connecting to Christ (Truth) is the true source of healing. The ‘thief comes to kill, steal and destroy:’ Messiah’s purpose is always to give people a rich and satisfying life. (John 10:10)
I have participated in this prayer ministry and can witness to the blessing it has been for me. Every human being can benefit from an encounter with “Truth,” which dispels the lies or wrong beliefs we have about ourselves. Our minds are renewed so we can go forward and thrive.
Bonita Graves is an excellent prayer facilitator. If you have found yourself in an area of internal conflict, I have confidence you will find greater measures of peace in your life through this prayer ministry.”
