We offer a mutual encouragement of local resources for local ministry, supported by those further afield, for implementing the principles of Prayer Ministry as embodied in the Circle of God’s love and the four areas of brokenness.
You can find out what is happening by using the events page.
Leaders are elected to guide and oversee the organisation in accordance with the Constitution. Each region have leaders who arrange local events.
Christian Prayer Ministry Members are members of local churches.
CPM is committed to working with and in Churches by invitation.
Its events are usually open to a number of churches in an area.
Events may be on Church premises or other appropriate venues.
Most events are open for anyone to attend.
We take a Christian viewpoint from the perspective of Jesus, and therefore of the biblical record of His time on earth and of His attitude to the scriptures of the Old Testament.
Biblical references are appended on some pages, as appropriate.
Core to the ministry is Luke 4:18-19
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has annointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.” [NIV]
The love of God through Jesus is for all.
God gives particular blessings to and through those to whom Jesus is Lord, in particular his Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit works to an unpremeditated agenda – the wind blows where it wills. (John 3:8)
Obstacles and hindrances may impede the touch of the Holy Spirit in non-Christians, as may also occur in Christians.
Anyone can apply to come on a prayer ministry course.
Yes – many people have experienced the life-changing power of the risen Jesus Christ and have become new people.
The News pages carry news of past events, including some blessings people have experienced.
As with most other events, courses will be generated locally by local decision, and will be posted on the events page of this Web Site. Events will be updated as we are notified.
The information leaflet for an event should give a cost for that occasion.
Other meetings may welcome a contribution at the end to cover expenses.
All Prayer Ministers operate under a ‘Code of Ethics and Practice’ and a ‘complaints procedure’ forms part of this. To see this document click here
