Christian Healing Centers seek growth

by: Wayne Grant Real Estate Editor

Organization hopes to have 1,000 centers throughout the world.

Daniel Murray has many stories of people being healed.

He tells of a man with stage-four throat cancer, who had been given four months to live by doctors. During a healing prayer, the man said he felt an “energy ball” hit his spine, and he saw darkness fly out of his throat. Doctors later verified the cancer was gone.

“God is amazing,” Murray said.

As drivers pass the bars, businesses and industry along busy U.S. 1, they are likely to miss the small Christian Healing Center building located just north of Airport Road. It’s there that Murray and a team of volunteers conduct prayers for the purpose of healing.

People can make an appointment for a healing prayer 1-7 p.m. every Tuesday. There is no fee but donations are accepted.

There are four types of healing, Murray said, physical, spiritual, emotional and deliverance from evil spirits. Murray said he and the other prayer ministers listen to the person to find their need.

For example, he said 75% of back pain is caused by “unforgiveness,” where a person has been wronged in the past and they are still carrying the grudge.

“I was a chaplain at a hospital and I know unforgiveness can make you sick,” he said.

The center also offers the School of Healing Prayer. The school’s material says the goal of the school is to teach the theory of the healing ministry of Jesus and practical ways in the best way to pray. It says everyone has some degree of abilities in healing but others are more gifted.

There are also special events. At 6:30 p.m. on July 18, they are having Generational Healing, where they say they can help people overcome inherited diseases, curses, weaknesses and addictions. Murray quotes a chapter in Exodus that states, “The weaknesses and sins of the family are passed down to the children for four generations.”

Murray, who also serves as a missionary to Central America, makes the point that a person must believe that Jesus Christ can heal them before healing can take place. He said he becomes an “empty vessel” when praying and “gets out of the way and lets Jesus to the work.’.

In March, he held an Only Believe Event, inviting people from throughout the U.S. for a healing meeting at the Plaza Resort and Spa in Daytona Beach. He said about 700 people attended and there was “an outpouring of the holy spirit.”

He said afterwards there was gold dust on some of the seats.

“God will sometimes spread gold dust,” he said.

Murray has a call-in radio program from 9:30 to 11 a.m. the first and third Thursday of each month on 91.5 WAPN.

The Christian Healing Center is part of the International Christ Healing Centers, headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. The goal of the organization is to have 1,000 Healing Centers within the next few years.

Murray said he has been invited to Titusville, where three Methodist churches, a Baptist church and a Presbyterian church sent a joint request to have him start a healing center.

Murray said Jesus commanded the disciples to not only spread the good news but also to heal, and healing had a lot of importance in the early church.
