Ben’s Story – Healing and Freedom from Shame (Season 1, Ep. 2)

In this episode, Ben shares a personal story of healing and being set free from unhealthy shame. He relates how he was encouraged to pursue healing by the suggestion of a good friend and Jesus’ invitation in prayer to “take His hand.”

  • More information about Theophostic or Transformation Prayer Ministry (TPM). As a note, in Ben’s experience the Holy Spirit led him to recall a memory into which Jesus wanted to speak the truth. TPM is a broader form of prayer that is not simply directed towards memories. It is about inviting God to speak the truth that sets us free. He chooses to speak to each of us in a unique way, tailored to what we need when we come to Him in prayer.
  • Movie about St. Vincent de Paul: Monsieur Vincent.
