We have a prayer and healing class that has been meeting for over seventeen years and still meets every week for those within driving distance of San Diego, CA. Call for time and place. (619) 435-7556

This is offered for those who are not.

First:
I have come to realize my domain name has led some to have a misconception about what we teach.  We therefore have attempted to overcome this with the following disclaimers:

We make no claim that the healing is performed by us.  It is the work of the Holy Spirit that works through the believer in the name of Jesus. 


(Mark 16:15-2015He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. 16Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; ......... they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."
19After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.

Second:
If it is thought that this teaching in any way denies the benefits of medical science or implies that they should not be sought, we neither believe nor teach it.  There are many, many testimonies that God uses medical science and often heals through it. Nevertheless, there are also many, many testimonies of cases where medical science had exhausted its resources and the healing came through prayer. Again, it is not a case of either/or, but both. However, we do think it is best to make Jesus your primary health provider.

Third:
 We solicit no donations. We pay our own expenses. But we do have something to sell -- ideas!  And they may be costly if you have cherished preconceived beliefs that are contrary to those we present. What is perhaps unique about this teaching is that we do it the way Jesus did it. By declaration or by command -- but in His name and by His delegated authority! 
 
See the many ways that Jesus healed.

Fourth:
Many believe that the ministry of healing is a gift from God and therefore cannot be an acquired skill.  We believe it is indeed a gift bestowed by the Holy Spirit. We believe that it is one of the nine spirituals tools given for evangelism. But like any tool, we must learn how to use it. We certainly do not claim that the power of healing originates with us. But we do teach how to use that power and be a channel for its application.  We have found that it works through experience. Therefore, we teach that others can learn it also. We acknowledge that the bestowing of any gift is determined by the Holy Spirit. But He can only bestow His gifts on those who are open to receiving them and you them for a benefit to others. We have found that He most often bestows them on those who are diligently seeking them and are anxious to use them as He directs. The bestowing of a gift is a transaction. It requires a giver and a receiver. So we need to do our part. It is like salvation. It is a gift, but we must accept it.

Finally:
We recognize there are other approaches to healing.  Still, we have found this is one approach, but it not the only one.
Although there is no specific reference to it in the Bible, we assume it is included in the "greater works"  referred to in 
John 14:12  "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father". KJV
 as testified to by the personal experiences listed on the   Miracles Page.
There you will find testimonies where healing took place using this approach as well as others,  You be the judge. Let the Holy Spirit be your Guide.

How to start a healing class of your own:
1.   Form a group of like-minded believers. If you are unable to get a group together at first, study up on it yourself anyway. Even having one other person to practice with can get you get started.

2.    Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide you. If you have not been baptized in the Holy Spirit it is strongly recommended you seek it.

3.    Purchase the book, "How To Heal the Sick," by Charles and Frances Hunter. We do not sell the books. We buy them for our use, just like others. [See the Hunter's homepage to order the books and tapes.]

4.    If you decide to continue, also purchase the Hunter's videotape on the subject. If the cost -- fifty dollars -- is a consideration, continue without it. Again, we do not sell anything. We are just referring you to where it can be purchased. 

5.    We have found that practicing on yourself  is a good way for the beginner to get started. It will then build your faith to pray for others.

6.   It is suggested that each class session be started with the prayer we use, or something similar. This declares who should get the credit for the healing. Click for the Class prayer

8.    Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about how to proceed. 

Note:
 Our bookshelf has some excellent books on healing and those topics related to healing. Click here to go to the bookshelf. Although this website is for those who are not able to attend our class in person, we have an active ongoing class for those who can. If you are primarily interested in being healed, and can come to the class in person, we will pray for you. Our expectation is that you will receive a benefit. Our hope, however, is that you will, in turn, want to learn how to pray effectively for others who may need prayer for healing. Our class trains on how to do just that. It is of Charismatic persuasion although the church itself is not. However, some of the members are. When you see a word that is underlined, click on it to open to another page. "Charismatic" opens to the homepage of Charisma Magazine where you will find the "Frequently asked questions." The answers will explain what the term "charismatic" means.] We meet every Wednesday evening at my home. You may call me at (619) 435-8557 for directions.  For over seventeen years our principle source for its approach is the teaching of Charles and Frances Hunter, a worldwide ministry devoted to training others on how to heal the sick. Their book How to Heal the Sick and a videotape entitled "How to Heal the Sick - POWER PACK," are the basic tools for this teaching. If you are unable to attend the class, studying the same resources we have studied will, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, produce the same results. There is no reason you cannot start a class of your own for this purpose. We are available to help you in any way that we can. Just ask. Although I have highlighted the healing of my cancer as an attention-getter, the focus should be on Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit -- not on what happened to me. Even our resources should not be your focus, although they can be instruments through which the Holy Spirit works. Again, the focus must, first and foremost, be on Jesus and His indwelling representative -- the Holy Spirit. Many years ago, I attended a seminar conducted by the Hunters. I discovered by experience that their four basic points are true.

These four points are:

1.  Divine healing of spirit, mind, soul and body is for today.

2.  How to do it can be taught.

3.  Any true believer can learn to do it.

4. And the power and presence of the Holy Spirit can be objectively demonstrated.

    For testimonies to the truth of these four statements go to testimonies The principle proof text for this ministry follows:

 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to
all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; . . . . they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well." After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. (Mark 16:15-20)   

Some argue that this passage was added later. Here is a commentary on that subject. Click on it. Was it added later? Many have experienced healing and some of their testimonies  appear on this page

We offer two ways to learn how to heal the sick: 

One way is to join us on Wednesday evenings. It is non-denominational. It is not structured. We have some of the source materials on hand that we have found to be effective.  Fundamentally, we believe that if God said it, we believe it, and that settles it. 

For directions to the class call me at 619-435-7556

The other way to join us is through this web page. We envision both individuals and groups learning how to heal the sick, just as we have. We can direct you to the same sources we have used. We are available to answer your questions. If you would like prayer for healing for yourself or someone else, send an e-mail. (hweeks2@san.rr.com) Include the person's first name and specific need. As mentioned above, the two basic sources for this teaching are the Hunter's book, How to Heal the Sick, and their Videotapes. In addition to the books and tapes from the Hunters' ministry, the books, audio and videotapes from Derek Prince Ministries, are extremely helpful. This is particularly true in the area of spiritual warfare. See the Derek Prince Website
For the supplemental books by other authors see the books listed in Our bookshelf. In addition, we have many handouts that have been used for class lessons. You may print them out without permission. To see a list of some of them, click on Supplemental lessons printouts. Also check out these websites

There is a ministry that is an excellent supplement to this teaching at http://healingrooms.com

     I would find it a blessing to know if anyone followed this teaching and experienced the same manifestations that we have. Will you sign my guestbook? 

Here is another teaching that parallels the Charles and Frances Hunter practice.

http://www.layhands.com/HealingTrainingCourse4.htm

(1)  (Acts 28:1-6) 1Once safely on shore, we found out that the island was called Malta. 2The islanders showed us unusual kindness. They built a fire and welcomed us all because it was raining and cold. 3Paul gathered a pile of brushwood and, as he put it on the fire, a viper, driven out by the heat, fastened itself on his hand. 4When the islanders saw the snake hanging from his hand, they said to each other, "This man must be a murderer; for though he escaped from the sea, Justice has not allowed him to live." 5But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects. 6The people expected him to swell up or suddenly fall dead, but after waiting a long time and seeing nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and said he was a god.

Mel Tari in his book, "Like a Mighty Wind" tells of mission teams being sent out to neighboring tribes who gave them poisoned drink.  When they suffered no ill affects, they accepted the gospel

ARECENT TERSTIMONY:

Hal-
 
Here is my healing testimony for you to post on your website.
 
Stephen was 13 when he was struck by a car in Coronado, CA. The car, turning right at a stop light and not seeing pedestrians ran stephen over. Stephen fractured his left foot, sprained his knee, back and neck. After over a year of rehab Stephen was healed through medical doctors. X-Rays showed in 2004 that Stephen had developed a severe case of Arthritis inside of his left foot. Doctors managed to remove all of the affected bone.

 
When Stephen turned 19 in 2007, years after the accident his neck & back pain returned with more pain than ever before. Doctors tried multiple forms of medication, rehab, treatment and possible surgery. During that time in late 2007 Stephen developed a painful form of TMJD (Temporo mandibular joint disorder). With all of the pain together, the only explanation was through Stephen's body growing to fit his body type of an Adult Male, all the pain from the car accident had never been shown through X-Rays or through any pain fully, until Stephen turned 20 years old. At times Stephen could not exceed limited athletic activity. Have a locked jaw many times in one day and not be able to turn his head in multiple longitudes. 

 
Unable to pay the medical bills that would come with more Rehab and Surgeries. Stephen was working at the time, and still is to this day, St. Pauls United Methodist Church in Coronado, CA. Through working in the youth program Stephen was introduced to Hal Weeks. In a group setting, Stephen attended Hal's famous "Healing and Prayer Class" on Wednesday Nights.

 
Upon prayer on Stephen, the pain went away. Stephen fell to the ground upon power of the holy spirit. When Stephen awoke he was pain free and ould move in directions with his body he could never before. The Holy Spirit also blessed Stephen with the ability to speak in tongues. 

If this teaching has lead you to start a class I would very much appreciate you emailing me. When you do say it is from this website.  Thank you and God bless you,  Hal

Note:  This Scripture tells us that evil spirits can cause sickness.  Therefore it behooves anyone interested in healing to b e at least conversant with demonology -- the casting out demons

.ACT 10:38     How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
