or any other un Godly aspect to their life. And certainly not against you.
They can as easily be an instrument for darkness, if they are not in a right relationship
with God, through Jesus Christ.
Proceed carefully. Try and find people with a healing ministry and not just people
who believe they have one. Choose people whose behaviour is compatible with receiving
the Holy Spirit. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you. Do not assume that everyone in
church authority is safe, but personally I would prefer a clergyman, priest, pastor,
or elder to lay hands on me rather than a ‘Joe Bloggs’ whose turn it is on the rota.
There is some advantage to going to a healing service where no one knows you and
is therefore not harbouring negative thoughts towards you.
There is also the advantage of putting your trust in people who you do know and respect
and trust. You make the call.
One can also pray for protection against any evil influences when one is being prayed
for by others.
I apologise if the above warning sounds disturbing, but a little care and prayer
before you step out in faith at a healing service is sensible.
Some churches allow anyone to pray for anyone. If you are the ‘anyone’ prepare yourself.
Humble yourself and repent of your own sins and allow yourself to be examined by
your conscience before laying your hands on another and expecting the Holy Spirit
to manifest himself powerfully through you.
