Practice of Healing Prayer – A Tiber River


The Practice of Healing Prayer
The Practice of Healing Prayer

The Practice of Healing Prayer: A How-To Guide for Catholics is a great introduction to the idea and movement that are based on the Holy Spirit’s ability to work in and through people to bring about healing.  For a number of years, the Church sort of drifted away from the importance and power of laypeople in bringing about healing in mind, body, and/or spirit.  Clergy and kings were the only ones “authorized” to anoint the sick or suffering at one point in time.

Former priest, now husband, father, and author, Francis MacNutt, PhD, has been working hard to revive the healing prayer movement in the Catholic Church.  He and his wife Judith, cofounders of Christian Healing Ministries in Jacksonville, Florida, have developed their organization around the fundamental grace of healing God has given His children throughout the ages.  This book includes information on the how, why, when, where, who, with and for whom of healing prayer, especially for laypeople in the Catholic Church.
