This course assists FCNs to boost their knowledge and awareness of scripture and prayer resources to reinforce their familiarity and comfort with offering prayer and utilizing prayer more effectively in their wholistic health ministry. The second half of the course is a dynamic video presentation that uses parables and biblical stories to illustrate the negative effects of resentments and grievances. Negative physiological effects of emotional states are presented and the behaviors that block forgiveness are highlighted. FCNs can integrate the content to assist in removing these barriers within their faith communities, thereby elevating the wholistic health of their congregations.
