The above articles is the output of the last three years from the earliest formulation of the prayer encounters that have become identified as Listening Prayer Therapy up to the present. Most were presented at a lectures, seminars or retreats. Almost all have been tested in group use or in individual therapy sessions. Listening Prayer Therapy presented here means the principles and procedures of Christian inner healing developed by George Hartwell M.Sc. of Agape Christian Counselling, Toronto, Ontario. Sometimes the term "inner healing" is used which means the experience of healing of core (inner) emotional issues by an encounter with God's truth and presence. Sometimes the term "Prayer Encounter" is used which is a description of the methods  I use for life transformation.
