Interdenominational Divine Healing Ministries will be celebrating its twentieth anniversary in St. Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast on Monday November 18 at 8 pm.

There has been a healing service in the Cathedral almost every Monday evening since 1993.  Brother David Jardine, director of the ministry, says:

during that time enormous healing has taken place in body, mind and spirit.  Indeed, there have been quite a number of notable healing miracles, and we want to come together on November 18 to thank God for everything He has been doing.

The speaker at this service will be Rev. Pat Collins from Dublin who will address the theme ‘God still heals today.’

Worship will be led by West Church Bangor Music Group.

Personal prayer for healing and a blessing with oil will be available.  You will be very welcome to join us on November 18 in St. Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast

Brother David Jardine will be doing three teaching sessions on the important topic – How to Pray for Ourselves.

These will take place in the Chapel of Unity in St. Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast on Thursdays, November 7, 14 and 21 from 8 pm to 9.30 pm.

It is a way of praying that involves welcoming the Holy Spirit to flow into every part of us, especially into any areas of our body that need healing.  If you remember that the Holy Spirit is the most powerful force in the whole world this way of praying brings a great blessing in body, mind and spirit.

What it involves is either sitting in a chair or lying down on a bed, closing our eyes, relaxing our bodies completely, taking a few minutes to focus on Jesus, welcoming the Holy Spirit to flow into every part of us (this is the main part of the prayer), and then finish off praising God by faith that He is responding to our prayer and bringing healing. All of this lasts about 20 or 30 minutes.  It is a very gentle way to pray.

David Jardine recommends that people who need it can pray this way once, or even twice, every day in their own homes.

We have a number of people coming to our ministry’ he says ‘who are suffering from serious illness, and they are making good progress.  What seems to be the key with these people is, first of all, their motivation.  They really want to get well.  Secondly, they have caught a vision of praying for themselves, and they practice it every day at home.’

Many people find it difficult to pray for themselves.  Here is an opportunity to learn how to do it in an effective way.  Each evening David Jardine will do a teaching, take questions and comments, and then lead people in practising this way of praying.

They will be three very blessèd evenings.  There is no charge for the course, but on the final evening there will be an opportunity to make a freewill offering.

If you are unwell please think about coming to learn more about this important dimension of healing.

 

  1. Brother David Jardine will be leading a course on the subject of Praying for Ourselves over three Thursday evenings in November (7, 14 and 21). Each evening will be a talk, questions and comments, and an opportunity to practice praying for ourselves, welcoming the Holy Spirit to flow into every part of us.’

A MISSION TO CALI IN COLOMBIA

 

The mission to the city of Cali in Colombia during the month of March was my fourth visit to that country.  Our hosts are always Pastor Hendrik Hoere and his wife Teijia. Hendrik is Dutch and Teijia is from Finland.  They met at Bible College in England.  Without knowing anything about Colombia Hendrik felt called to go and work there.  That was twenty-five years ago.  Conditions were rough in those days and the country was dangerous.  It still is.  There are between 15 and 20 people killed every day in Cali and between 100 and 200 every weekend.  It is one of the most dangerous cities in the world.  When we go there on mission we only do what the local people tell us to do, and we never go out unaccompanied.

There were three other members of our team this year – Paul Shields from West Church in Bangor, Stuart Gibson from the Metropolitan Tabernacle in Belfast and Philip McKee from 1st Newtownards Presbyterian Church.  One of Philip’s gifts is offering to pray with people on the streets. On the Saturday morning, while we were conducting a seminar in a church, Philip went out on the streets with a member of the local congregation.  Two hours later he came back to tell us that he had prayed with 40 – 50 people.  Only 4 had turned down the offer of a prayer.

Right from the beginning of the journey to Colombia Philip was praying with people in public places.  In the airport at Heathrow, as we waited for the flight to Miami, one of our fellow passengers was the singer Lulu.  She signed a lovely message to the team, and then Philip asked her if she would like a prayer, to which she replied ‘I would love a prayer’.  When Philip had finished Lulu said ‘Hallelujah!’ That started off a 20 minute conversation with Lulu on God, love, forgiveness, prayer and meditation.

We knew when we were in Colombia that we were surrounded by a volume of prayer back in Ireland. We needed that. We were working in 100ᵒ of heat, and were often asked to speak in public at short notice.  The team were an excellent team, all able to speak very effectively in public, but I think that volume of prayer made the mission a wonderful success.  We all felt a great anointing of the Holy Spirit every time we got up to speak.

I have felt for many years now that if you go to minister in another country you are not going to make much of an impact if you do not come to love the people.  The people of Colombia treat us so well that they are not difficult to love.  Pastor Hendrik says they are the most friendly people he has ever met in his life.  He also says that they are not people with a critical spirit.  They always see something good even in the most difficult or disappointing situation.  Maybe in Northern Ireland we could learn something from this outlook on life.

If you were to ask me what is the most important lesson I learnt on this trip to Colombia I would probably say that the Lord showed me again how important it is to allow Him to be in control.  Out of all the churches we ministered in, almost 20 I am sure, the three which made the biggest impact were where the pastor was able to allow the Lord to be in charge.  Two of the pastors were men, the other was an 85 year old lady called Pastor Fanny.  All were vibrant when they spoke or prayed in public, but all of them had the gift of being able to let go and allow other people to come to the fore.  Is that the secret in our personal lives and in our ministries? Knowing how to let go and allow the Lord to be in charge.

This mission to Colombia by Divine Healing Ministries unquestionable deepened the relationship between our ministry and the Church in Cali.  We now look forward to Pastor Hendrik’s annual visit to Northern Ireland from June 25 until July 2.

 

A very warm welcome to our services this week. They begin on as usual on Monday 18th November at 1.00pm in St George’s, Belfast where Brother David Jardine will speak. On Monday evening at 8.00pm in St. Anne’s Cathedral, the speaker will be Fr Pat Collins, and on Tuesday evening the 19th November at 8.00pm in St Finnian’s, Cregagh the speaker will be Mrs Margaret Graham a member of our team.

 

20th Anniversary Service. – Divine Healing Ministries was formed 20 years ago and on Monday 18th November 2013 we will be celebrating this milestone anniversary.  We give thanks and praise to God for all that He has done for us down through the years; for the numerous blessings of His healing touch received, and for many lives changed for the better. Thanks are also given for the many people, past and present, who have faithfully served as God’s instruments as part of our ministry teams over these 20 years; to those folk who have used their musical skills leading praise at our services, and to all who in faith come along for prayer, not only for themselves but also on behalf of others. We offer our thanks as well to all who have shared their own experiences with us by speaking at our services and to those who by their teaching have helped our ministry develop. Our guest speaker at this event will be Fr. Pat Collins who will address the theme, “God still heals today.” Pat has been a very good friend to our ministry for many years and we are delighted and thankful that he is able to join us on this special occasion. Last, but by no means least, we give thanks for all of you who have been able to join with us in the celebration of this landmark event.

We hope that you will be able to either continue making this commitment or to start making the commitment. It is not a big commitment but if enough of us do this it could be important for the future of  this country;

 

High King of Heaven, have mercy on our land.

Revive your Church.

Send the Holy Spirit, for the sake of the children.

May your Kingdom come to our nation.

In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

Christmas Gift – Still wondering what to give someone for Christmas? Why not buy one of our wide selection of CD’s or DVD’s. They would make a great gift and may also prove to be a blessing to the recipient.

 

The CD recommendation for November is, “The Healing Power of Forgiveness”. Forgiveness; genuine forgiveness, is not something that comes easily to any of us.  When someone causes us pain, whether it be physical or emotional, a lack of forgiveness can easily take root within us and, despite our best intentions, re-emerge as resentment and bitterness. Forgiveness is a fundamental element of our Christian faith and as such we must learn to apply it in our daily lives. We must also recognise that it is a command from God and that there are consequences for not putting it into practice. Forgiveness is a very serious business. In this CD Brother David Jardine, drawing on many years of experience, offers us instruction on introducing the healing power of forgiveness into our lives. There are no quick fixes but with perseverance and the application of this teaching, our lives and those of others can be transformed. I know this to be true on a personal level and wholeheartedly commend this CD to you.

New Website – Our new website has been a long time in preparation. It has been professionally done and those who have seen it say that it is a very good piece of work.  We are delighted to be able to launch it on the night of our 20th Anniversary Service; Monday 18th November 2013. Please pray that God will really use this new dimension to our ministry.  We are very grateful to George Hewitt for his work in helping to bring this website into being. The address for the new website is www.divinehealingministries.org

Did you know that if you are a UK Taxpayer we can claim Gift Aid on your donations? If you would like to help us further in this way, forms can be obtained either from Wynne Sharp or from the office

Signs of Revival

Growth in a local parish

For almost twenty years I have been taking a service every year in a parish in East Belfast at the beginning of July, mostly when the rector is away.  The people are warm and friendly and I enjoy my annual visits.  But I could not help noticing over the years that numbers were beginning to dwindle, and a year or two ago seemed to me to be pretty small.  So I was pleasantly surprised to go on the usual Sunday in July, 2011 and to find the church well packed.  It was buzzing in a way that I had not seen before.  Recently I talked again to the Rector and he assured me that is the way it is every Sunday now, comfortably packed.  This is an ordinary parish in East Belfast and I just wonder is this growth a sign of the revival that is coming.  We have between 500 and 600 people who have been praying for revival for 2 ½  years, since the venture was launched in 2009, and I dare to believe that this very considerable growth is a sign that our prayers are being answered.

I have found the same thing in West Belfast.  A Rector has worked faithfully there for 20 years and all of a sudden very steady growth is starting to take place.  Numbers attending worship are the best since he has gone there.  From August until Christmas 5 or 6 individuals in the congregation have given their lives to Christ. A number of men with a paramilitary background are now coming to church.  Some have become committed Christians.  An ordinary parish in an area which suffered a great deal in the Troubles.  Is this another encouraging sign that revival is beginning?

At the other end of the scale a friend in Bangor who goes to a Presbyterian Church told me that in a church which holds 800 people they are having to put out extra chairs every Sunday.  This growth has been happening steadily in recent times.  Young people are very well represented in this church.

Is this another sign that revival is beginning?
