MOHAP - Circle of Prayer and Fellowship

Sunday the 17th November was a grey chilly day; however the majority of attendees at the MOHAP day retreat, held at the Stanborough park church were bright and early. The fellowship was warm and welcoming; although the church was a little on the cool side due to a heating system issue. However, as attendees worshiped, prayed and praised God; hearts and minds were spiritually warmed and the bodies eventually followed. The Stanborough press were in attendance and provided a comprehensive selection of prayer and health books, which wonderfully complimented the MOHAP theme ‘Lord make me whole‘.  

 

 Pastor Humphrey Walters’ inspirational devotion, focused on the woman with the issue of blood. He outlined how years of hope for healing, was eventually consummated in the touch of the Masters garments. Marlene Levy’s (Psychotherapist) presentation ‘The impact of anger on mental and emotional health’ from a Christian perspective elicited much discussion. Carol Douglas from Manchester echoed the other attendee’s comments; as she concluded that “more opportunities were needed to talk about the extensive issues related to anger”.

 Dr Christopher Levy was unable to attend due to illness and consequently Angellete Muller  (Consultant Nutritionist) graciously replaced Dr Levy and provided a thoughtful and well received presentation on ‘Our relationship with food’. The day was sensitively punctuated with time for reflection, corporate, individual and prayer in two’s.

A praise and testimony session provided attendees with the opportunity to testify as to how God had worked in their lives. Chioma Onyedinma-Ndubueze from the Stratford church joyfully testified how God had miraculously answered the ‘persistent prayer of a mother’; which had extended over many years for employment for her son.

 Pastor Cecil Perry, retired BUC president provided a biblical introduction to the anointing service. Seven Pastors from both the SEC and NEC provided upon request individual anointing, prayer and brief pastoral counselling. The pastors concluded the anointing service with a private hand held circle of prayer and fellowship.  The fellowship for all was intertwined throughout the day and was concluded with a crescendo of praise in the theme song ‘How great thou art’; leading one individual to comment it was a “blessed day”.
