Healing Prayer Ministry
The Healing Ministry is a gentle, loving, compassionate Ministry
which includes the laying on of hands. It follows the command that Jesus
gives his disciples (Mathew 10) when He sent them out to heal all kinds
of sickness and disease and again, in James 5:14, when we are given the
instruction if anyone is ill to send for Church. Elders will pray for
them in the name of Jesus.
In 1940 -1950, a group of Glasgow ministers introduced Healing
Ministry into their Parishes. The movement spread all over Scotland and
by 1980 -2000 the Ministry was seen as part of the work and witness of a
The International Healing Rooms Scotland came into being and in 2005
the Healing on the Streets (which came from Coleraine in Ireland) came
to Edinburgh. Many healings were seen during that time.
Today Light and Life who are based in Glasgow, minister in various
places and see all kinds of healing and witness people who accept Jesus
into their lives who have never known His love. God’s promise to heal is
as true today as it was in the 1st Century A.D. God can use anyone who
has a desire in their heart to reach out to others, for we are channels
of God’s grace and healing Holy Spirit for the Glory goes to God.
