04 Jul Science and the Power of Prayer: Inner Healing Prayer in Chandler, AZ

You can always read our powerful testimonies or look inward and seek guidance from your personal connection to your faith when considering whether you want to experience the power of Sozo inner healing prayer. However, it’s always interesting to take a look at the intersection between science and faith. This is an area of interest to Christians, but also to those of you who don’t identify as Christian but are open to the power of faith and spirituality. In 2013, the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology published a study which examined the power of prayer. In this particular study they examined prayer’s effects on one’s ability to resist temptation.

08 Jun What is the Difference between Sozo Ministry and Christian Counseling in Chandler?

While those who are involved in counseling are likely trying to accomplish the same things, Sozo ministry is not Christian counseling, it is an inner healing prayer ministry. Sozo ministry and Christian counseling both seek to help you feel better emotionally and spiritually, but go about it in different ways.
