Councel Psalm

The Life Bridge Prayer Model


Transforming Prayer combines the Theophostic Prayer Model developed by Dr. Ed Smith and the Defiant Faith Prayer Model developed by Doug Tawlks, M.A. Counseling and his associate Dave Miller.

Many pastors and professional counselors who have experienced this prayer process often say that the results are amazing. It has been reported to us many times that more healing happens in one session than numerous sessions of talk counseling. We are not suggesting that Transforming Prayer is a substitute for counseling or a fix-all experience; however, it is often an important missing piece in the process of personal growth and restoration.

Some believe that all you need is healing prayer to resolve your problems. This is not our position. We believe that God brings healing and restoration into our lives through many of His chosen avenues and gifted people including counselors and the body of Christ.

We will always endeavor to be emotionally and denominationally sensitive to people from a variety of Christian backgrounds and this ministry is available to anyone who requests it regardless of their religious background.


Transforming Prayer Counseling:

Transforming Prayer is a life changing process that has proven effective in helping people get free from self-destructive thinking that causes many forms of anxiety and depression.  This model gets its foundations from the highly respected prayer models called Theophostic Prayer developed by Dr. Ed Smith and Freedom in Christ Prayer by Dr. Neil Anderson.
