We recently explored this at our prayer ministry training evening. Listen to Matt Frost’s teaching by clicking here.
We looked at this passage from the bible, and then explained a 7 step process to help us pray for people – with the acronym TEL PAPA.
Mark 8 22 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. 23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spat on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, ‘Do you see anything?’ 24 He looked up and said, ‘I see people; they look like trees walking around.’ 25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. 26 Jesus sent him home, saying, ‘Don’t even go into the village.’
