Overview The author shows that God can heal the deepest hurts, wounds, and areas of sin.
Publishers Description One restless night Rick Richardson was disturbed throughout his sleep by an image of a man coming at him with a knife. Taking that image seriously set Rick on a profound journey of healing and prayer around issues of masculinity and relationships. Sometimes we feel spiritually numb, find ourselves emotionally dependent, struggle with addictive behavior, or see a trail of broken relationships behind us. These can be signs that we are in need of God's healing touch in our lives through prayer--prayer that we can learn and practice in community. In this biblical and very human book, Richardson walks us through the steps we need to receive this gift of healing from God as well as to begin praying for others in their pain.

A Profound and Trustworthy Journey Into Healing Prayer Aug 18, 2005
When I was a junior in college at a major state university, Rick Richardson led a weekend retreat for the healing of past family wounds (see chapters 11 & 12 of this book). At this retreat, I heard the quiet voice of God for the first time tell me, "You are not a hypocrite." (Chapters 5 & 6) I then saw an image of my father embracing me and my whole family: and I wept. From that day God has continued to bring restoration and wholeness into my life through many experiences of healing prayer minsistry, and I have had the privilege of leading others in healing prayer as well. The stories and teaching found in this book are REAL. Chapters 13 & 14, focusing on Forgiveness/Healing of Memories and Battling Sexual Addiction, deal with two of the most important challenges our churches and culture face today. This book is filled with profound yet accessible understanding and practical help for those needing healing themselves, and those who are called to be ministers of Jesus' healing to others as pastors, prayer leaders, and friends of God. I highly recommend it!
