The Office of Community Formation offers Healing Prayer appointments for personal prayer ministry by a trained healing prayer minister.
During an appointment, the prayer minister’s task is to listen, love, and pray. Prayer ministry is not counseling or advice giving, but an opportunity to journey intentionally with a healing prayer minister to experience Jesus who is already at work to heal. The ministry focus is on an attentiveness to the whole person in order to discern what Jesus is healing in the person receiving prayer.
Prayer appointments typically last from 1 to 1.5 hours. In addition to the prayer minister, a trained intercessor or observer may also attend. The details of prayer ministry are always strictly confidential.
Chapel/Altar Prayer Ministry
Prayer teams are available for personal ministry after the Wednesday Eucharist Chapel in Kentucky and after the Tuesday and Thursday Chapel services on the Florida Dunnam campus.
To receive prayer, look for the prayer teams gathered near the front of the chapel immediately following the service. Prayer ministers wear lapel pins to indicate they are part of the Healing Academy.
Typically, this type of prayer ministry is limited to several minutes with each person seeking prayer. As you come for prayer, be aware of what you would like Jesus to do for you so that the prayer ministers can come into agreement with you.
If you are interested in training to offer this type of prayer ministry to others, please visit the Asbury Healing Academy at asbury.to/healing.
The Healing Academy and its participants actively engage in a lifestyle of personal and corporate prayer. Several intercessory prayer meetings may gather on the campuses of Asbury Seminary within a given week.
If you have a prayer request, at any time, please feel free to share that request using our Prayer Request Form.
