The Healing of Families by Fr. Yozefu


The healing of Families: How to Pray Effectively for Those Stubborn Personal and Familial Problems

by Yozefu - B. Ssemakula

Learn how to pray positively and effectively for stubborn family problems that touch you and your family. Learn and experience that God the Father is a God of blessing and healing. Learn and experience how family connections are spiritual connections that. God in Jesus wants to bless and heal.

This is a book about how to effectively pray, Christian prayer, about persistent problems and for healing; all types of healing: physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual. It shows you how what we normally think of as just being our own personal problems in life are in fact deeply rooted familial problems, we only reproduce them with a few personal overtones.We are our families, and our families are us, how can it be otherwise? And therefore, effective prayer for healing most often eludes us as we fail to apply the healing power that the Lord Jesus Christ brought us, to where the problem is rooted, in the family. This happens because we normally think of, and look at, just us, losing the bigger picture, not knowing that we are only a symptom of the problem, a representation, a red dashboard light saying something about the engine, a cog in the wheel of my family; and that it is not a personal problem despite all appearances. Since we think what is going on is our own personal problem, our prayer too follows that pattern, serious falling short of the target. Result: it becomes like a cry in the desert, with no effect! And yet God wants us healed, He constantly sends us healing! But we spend time trying to convince God in prayer to give us what He has already given us: healing, when He sent Jesus Christ! We have little clue that the key is not with God anymore but is right here with us, brought to us by Jesus and left here. We simply don't know how to use it! And thus God laments: My people perish for not knowing (Hosea 4:6)! This book will pull you out of that "not knowing" and lead you step by step to the full benefit that Christ has already brought to you: not only a healed and useful life, but also a joyful one!
