A lot of people think that when you believe in Jesus, you will no longer experience this kind of problems. There are actually some problems that will be gone, but not all of them. People doubt and feel unworthy and the reason this happens, is because the satan sows this in the mind of people. Satan also prevents people from getting the right help that they need. It is in the Bible that when you accept Jesus in your lives it will also be the start of your relationship journey with him. Another thing that satan will do is to prevent us from praying because he knows this will strengthen our relationship with God.
What is prayer ministry?
The prayer ministry is sometimes called as prayer counseling and this is where the members of the church will assist other members to let go of their sins and sickness and to walk with Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit.

The basis of the prayer should be the personal relationship with God. It is important that you are intimate when praying to God. Praying is not just for your requests but it is to have a personal relationship with God.
Everyone should have the right purpose when praying. Your prayer will be more effective when you focus more on God than yourself.

Everyone should make praying part of their everyday lives.
Everyone should be dependent on the power of God when praying.
Everyone should follow and apply the principles in the bible when praying.
