happened when the medical field had given up.
"Treatment is the art, the act, and the science of consciously

services of a practitioner. They can pray about whatever needs healing,

The work of the Practitioner is a professional service. Our national
organization has established the fee schedule for Practitioner work as
follows: single session $40. This is for the time of the practitioner
and the years they have studied and trained to get this designation. It is
like any other professional service.
Recognize that healing prayer work is never withheld because of a temporary
inability to pay. Simply let your Practitioner know that you also desire
work in the area of prosperity. Our purpose is to offer support and service,
so please do not let the issue of money keep you from calling.
