Prayer focuses the power of God on the problems of man. We at the MD Harris Institute pray in word, in image, and in song. We pray in the power of the Spirit of Jesus Christ and in accordance with the Holy Bible. We pray informed by science, by medicine, and by history. Contact us on the Comment Page. The more specific you are, the more effective intercession will be. Be honest, lest your duplicity bring a curse upon you. Prayer is not something to be trifled with.
Need a blessing?
Something good happened to you? Graduation? Getting married? Having a baby? Buying a house? Anniversary? Good diagnosis?
Something bad happened to you? Divorce? Unemployed? Broken relationship? Bad diagnosis? Funeral?
Contact us. The more specific you are, the more effective your blessing will be. In addition to praying for you, provide your mailing address and we will send a letter with a written blessing. Bear in mind that we will bless you as God speaks to us, not necessarily as you may expect or even desire.
Team members at the MD Harris Institute do not curse others (Luke 6:28, Romans 12:14). However, we do pray against evil and against evildoers.
Counsel focuses the wisdom of God on the problems of man (James 1:5-7). Let us know about what is vexing you and we will respond with good counsel – applicable passages from the Bible, articles from the MD Harris Institute, and wisdom from other sources. We will also pray for divine wisdom for you.
