Q. How can I find out if John is coming to a place near me this year?
Q: If I can’t seem to find the meeting I was looking for on the itinerary. Does that mean that it has been cancelled?
Yes, on very rare occasions, meetings can be rescheduled, cancelled or the venue is altered if you can no longer find them on the itinerary, this may be the case. We will put up the new details as soon as possible.
Q: What’s the difference between a Healing Meeting and a Healing Seminar?
In Healing Meetings, we focus on praying for the sick.
In Healing Seminars, we teach about Christian healing – both how to receive it and how to pray for the sick in Jesus’ name.
Q: What happens in a healing meeting?
Healing Meetings begin with a time of singing praise and worship songs. The pastor of the hosting church then gives a welcome, makes announcements and if it’s a Sunday takes up the church tithes and offerings. John then delivers a message on healing from the Bible. He then prays for the sick.
At first he prays for one person at a time and he teaches and encourages the congregation as he does so. After a period of praying in this manner, he then often prays over the congregation, as we see many people healed in their seats. A salvation call is then given for anyone who hasn’t opened their life to Jesus before and would like to.
A free will Love Offering is taken up for the Ministry – we are a Faith Ministry – which means that we don’t receive a salary from anywhere but our meetings. The meeting is then dismissed, so that people who need to leave are free to go, but anyone else who would like prayer is free to come to the front and be prayed for.
Our meetings often run for 4+ hours as so many people come along for prayer.
Q: Do we need to book or just turn up at a meeting?
There is no need to book to come to a Healing Meeting, you are most welcome to just turn up (and bring your friends!).
Usually there is no need to book to attend a Healing Seminar, but please check details on our website itinerary as some churches do ask that you book so that they have an idea of numbers for seating and catering.
Q: Does it cost anything to come to a meeting?
All Healing Meetings are free to attend, though a free will Love Offering is taken to support our ministry.
We charge a small amount to attend our Healing Seminars, which usually run for 4-5 hours. The fee amount is payable at the door and details of the amount are on our itinerary.
Q: Does it cost anything to receive healing?
You cannot pay for your healing. Healing is a free gift from God. However, John and Julie’s ministry is a faith ministry and they depend on donations to continue their work, so you may wish to support them through free-will Love Offerings collected at their Healing Meetings, or via the Donation tab on the front page of this site. Alternatively, you can buy one of their resources.
Q: Does John pray for the sick at all meetings or only sometimes?
John will always pray for as many sick people as possible in Healing Meetings, if time will allow it. For example, some churches have two morning meetings with only a short time gap in between. When this happens, John is sometimes unable to spend much time praying for people directly after the first service, because the church needs to set up for the second service. Most of our Healing Meetings run for 4+ hours as many people come along for prayer.
In Healing Seminars, where the focus is on teaching for 4-5 hours, there is not time to pray for everyone, but John will demonstrate how to pray for the sick and pray for some people.
Q: Should I try to attend lots of meetings, or will one meeting be enough if I am in need of healing?
It is always beneficial to attend as many meetings as possible, as some healings may not happen instantly and some are a process. It is also beneficial to be in the atmosphere of faith to receive healing, as the Bible says that: ‘Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God’ Romans 10:17 (NKJV).
We have experienced many people being totally healed of chronic illnesses after a few meetings, though many are healed instantly. Also, each meeting has its own unique spiritual dynamic and sometimes the anointing in one meeting will be stronger for certain conditions that others.
Q: How can I see John if I can’t get to a meeting? Are there other alternatives to receive healing prayers?
We always encourage people to try to come to a Healing Meeting where there is an increased atmosphere of faith & expectation that has been built through the prayer, fasting and worship that has taken place in the lead up to the meetings. Many people come from long distances, even from overseas, to attend our meetings. Combined desperate faith of many people attending our meetings creates a powerful atmosphere for miracles that can benefit and uplift those whose faith may not be as strong. Also, you will receive a more focused prayer for healing if you are standing in front of us, where we may be able to discern promptings from the Holy Spirit about how to pray for your condition, than we have time for with the hundreds of emailed prayer requests we receive each day. However, if this is not possible, perhaps a friend could come to the meeting for you and ask John to pray with them. You can also send in your prayer request to us via the Contact page. Alternatively, there are many churches and ministries around the world that are praying for the sick in Jesus’ name and we encourage you to seek them out for hands on prayer.
Q: Can you help us with directions to the meetings?
Unfortunately, we don’t have time to field that many enquiries. The best thing to do is either ring the church that is hosting the meeting, or search the internet for more details.
Q: Is there a chance to catch up with John during the week when he doesn’t have meetings?
John is not available outside meetings as there are so many needs that he would quickly burn out. He only has a few days rest between each weekend of meetings and needs to prepare and travel to the next destination.
Q: Why does John sometimes make the ‘swooshing’ sound when he prays for people?
John sometimes ‘throws’ the anointing and instinctively makes a ‘swooshing’ sound when he prays. Many people experience an extra measure of the healing anointing when he does this and receive their healing. It’s like in John 20:22 where Jesus, ‘breathed on them and said, “receive the Holy Spirit.’ NLT
Q: Does John ‘pray in tongues’ when he is praying for people?
John is a fluent Spanish and Italian speaker and he often speaks in Spanish or Italian when praying for people. John enjoys learning other languages. Of course he will also pray for people in ‘tongues’ occasionally too, but most prayer is in English.
