This document addresses prayer ministry in the church as a facilitator in Promoting spiritual and physical healing in the body of Christ, and stresses that prayer is the weapon that God has given to the church to destroy the works of Satan and to establish the kingdom of God. The methodology for this model of ministry includes personal, leadership, and congregational preparation through scripture and prayer, the formation of prayer groups, and practical participation in intercessory prayer. Qualitative analytical research and review revealed after a period of three months that prayer ministry in church is key to spiritual renewal both within and outside the church, and a source of power for effective ministry.
