transformation prayer ministry Dept.
The YWAM Potchefstroom Prayer Ministry Department utilises the Transformation Prayer Ministry (formerly called Theophostic Prayer Ministry) method of ministry.
"TPM is a ministry for those who desire to intentionally participate
with God in the work that He is doing, refining their faith (belief),
renewing their minds and transforming their lives. Negative emotions
such as worry, fear, stress, hopelessness, feeling overwhelmed,
depressed, alone and more are all produced by what we believe and not
our circumstance. TPM provides a way to identify the lie-based beliefs
producing our emotional pain so that we might look to the Lord and be
persuaded of the truth by His Spirit in our hearts. TPM is not limited
to the “emotionally troubled” but can become a LIFESTYLE for every
believer who desires to connect with God and hear from Him every day.
TPM is powerful as it is the Holy Spirit who persuades our hearts of
the truth dispelling our lie-based beliefs that steal our joy and keep
us from effortlessly experiencing the fruit of His Spirit. To “be
transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2) is wholly a
work of God’s Spirit. TPM is a way to participate in His work.
There are four basic steps involved in TPM:
-focus on what you are feeling
-allow your mind to surface any related memory
-discover how you came to believe what you currently believe that is
causing you to feel what you feel
-receive Jesus's truth about the belief to experience genuine
transformation of your belief and behavior
We want to train and minster, building our group of trained ministers and releasing them in the field of ministry. Our next step is to use TPM as outreach tool in particular in African countries that have experienced traumatic violence and political unrest, as well as all over the world.
