STEYN, J.. Guidelines for the application of the Theophostic Prayer Ministry. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.1, pp.127-144. ISSN 2305-0853.

The basic principle of the Theophostic Prayer Ministry (TPM) is to attempt to resolve clients' present conflict by finding healing forpast wounds in prayer. The TPM model has a unique advantage over non-Christian models in that it pursues the healing of past wounds by means of binding the suffering back to God. "Koinonia" (the fellowship of believers), "communio" (a deeper sense of the involvement of God), "coram Deo" (the ever-presence of God), as well as "pneumatonomic synergy" (being in balance with the holy plan of God), are restored, launching a new life. The TPM relies on three types of memory: visual, emotional and physical memory. Freeing a person from his/her helpless state is to guide that person towards divine revelation. The outcome unfolds as a sincere and holy recovery in Christ.
