Healing Prayer Conference

02.21.24 | Homepage


    Join us as we welcome Judith MacNutt and the Rev. Canon Dr. Sandra Kerner to the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas and Church of the Incarnation for a powerful Healing Prayer Conference weekend. MacNutt and Kerner will teach the basics of learning how to pray for healing for oneself and others, including the healing of images of God and the emotions, the giving and receiving of forgiveness, and healing from generational sins in our families. This event leading up to the feast of Pentecost is a kickoff for a hoped-for revival of healing ministry in the diocese as we seek the gifts of the Holy Spirit to empower and enable the Church’s healing ministry in a broken and hurting world.

    Judith MacNutt is President and Co-founder of Christian Healing Ministries in Jacksonville, Florida. She has a master’s degree in psychology and is a licensed psychotherapist. She learned early in her career to address client’s spiritual needs as well as psychological, which led her to eventually become director of a house of prayer in Jerusalem. When she returned to Florida she started Christian Healing Ministries with her husband, the late Dr. Francis MacNutt. Judith is a nationally renowned expert on healing prayer, has written several books on the subject, and has traveled extensively to bring this ecumenical training to churches everywhere.

    The Rev. Canon Dr. Sandra B. Kerner has dedicated her life’s work to healing ministry, spiritual direction and pastoral care. She is the Canon for Prayer and Pastoral Care at the Cathedral Church of St. Luke and St. Paul in Charleston, and she serves as Canon for Prayer and Healing in the Anglican Diocese of South Carolina. She has a long history of experience with healing prayer including working for Christian Healing Ministries and serving as chaplain and on the board of the Order of St. Luke the Physician.

    This conference is sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas and Church of the Incarnation.
