What Are The Healing Rooms?
The Healing Rooms of Wilmington provide a loving, safe, confidential environment where you can come to receive prayer. If this will be your first time visiting the Healing Rooms, we would like to take this time to walk you through your prayer session. When you first come in, you will be warmly greeted, and asked to sign your name on our sign in sheet and then fill out an information form, listing what your prayer needs are. This form is for our information only and is strictly confidential.
Our Healing Rooms Ministry Teams.
We have wonderful prayer team people at our Healing Rooms who are all devoted in seeing that you receive the answer to your prayer request. A family atmosphere of love and unity permeates our team of people. Assembling in small groups of two or three to pray, the Holy Spirit flows through them as a team. There is only one “super-star” in our midst: Jesus!! Some are healed instantly by a miraculous touch from God. Others receive their healing progressively over a period of time. We are committed to pray for you, contending for your healing until you are completely well in spirit, soul and body!!
How Did The Healing Rooms of Wilmington Start?
In August of 2000, twelve members of Newark Christian Fellowship traveled to Spokane, Washington to receive training in the Healing Rooms model. From October of that year, three of these twelve, Pastor Bruce Latshaw, Rev. Maria DeShields, and Mr. Larry Field envisioned, planned, and administered the Healing Rooms of Wilmington. Training of ministry team members from local churches began in 2001 and the Healing Rooms of Wilmington opened its doors on April 18, 2001. In 2002, Pastor Chuck Williams began serving as executive director of the Healing Rooms Of Wilmington.
What Can I Expect When I Receive Healing Prayer?
Above all, you can expect the gentle presence and touch of God’s love through Jesus Christ. Our healing teams are trained to minister healing in Jesus’ name. A member of the team will come to the reception area and escort you to a room where you will receive prayer for healing. One person on the team has been designated as the team leader who will lead the healing ministry time, though all on the team will pray for you as led by the Spirit of God. Our healing technicians may anoint you with oil, lay hands on you as they pray, or ask you to receive communion. But, before they do, they will ask your permission to do so. If you do not give your permission, they will respect your desire and minister to you in other ways. Each healing session typically lasts fifteen to twenty minutes, though this may vary as decided by the team. Normally, the team will command your body to be made whole in Jesus’ name, even as Jesus and his disciples did when they ministered to the sick. Occasionally the Holy Spirit will give team members special ways to pray by utilizing the gifts of the Spirit.
Must I Have Faith To Receive Healing?
If you have strong faith that God will heal you, that is wonderful. We encourage you to grow personally in biblical faith for healing by studying scriptures on healing. We also encourage you to ask God for healing through the prayer of faith. However, at the Healing Rooms of Wilmington, we expect our healing teams to exercise faith for healing on behalf of those who receive prayer. While God can heal you in many ways, including through your own faith, we expect God to use the faith-filled prayers of our ministry teams to bring healing to you even if you are weak in faith
Should I Continue To See A Doctor?
The medical community ministers healing through medicine. We are fully supportive of their work and believe God uses them greatly. Divine healing is not in competition with medical or natural means of healing. You should remain under your doctor’s supervision and treatment plan for as long as you judge is right for you. When your health is recovered through healing prayer, we recommend you have your healing confirmed by your doctor not only as a witness, but also for your personal peace of mind as well.
Should Only Christians Visit The Healing Rooms?
No. Anyone who is sick for any reason should come to the Healing Rooms of Wilmington. We will pray for Christians and non-Christians alike, young or old, and of any ethnic background. When God touches you, we ask you to let us know what He has done in order for us to keep accurate records of His works in the Healing Rooms of Wilmington. Your testimony will encourage others in their faith to be healed. We also encourage you to call us at 302-268-0026 with any prayer request for those who are sick. Our intercessors will pray over these requests for one month.
