St. James offers private prayer sessions to address inner and physical healing needs. These are held by appointment in a safe and nurturing environment with two Prayer Ministers who are trained in healing prayer and confidentiality. Their role is to help the prayer receiver connect with Jesus for healing in any areas of distress or need.

We have prayer ministers certified in Issue-Focused Ministry through the Restoring the Foundations International Ministry as well as those trained in the general healing prayer ministry that we have offered since 1999. For a comparison of the two ministry formats, please see:  Comparison of In-Depth Healing Prayer Options
