Intercession Training Course (ITC)
May 27, 2016
One week of intensive intercession training
“Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication.” (NRSV)
“You did not choose me but I chose you.” (NRSV)
ARCHIDIOCESE OF KINSHASA - CATHOLIC CHARISMATIC RENEWAL
INTERNATIONAL TRAINING ON INTERCESSION
From July 1st to July 6 th 2016, there will be an International Training Course on Intercession, called: “A call to prophetic Intercession”. This event of the International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services (ICCRS) is a gift to the Church on the eve of the Great Jubilee Celebration, and is organized by the Intercession Network of Congo Kinshasa in collaboration with the Diocese and National Renewal of Congo Kinshasa.
The ICCRS Intercession Training Course, which is a one-week school, is the concrete realization of the desire to form a large family of intercessors worldwide. Intercession, being at the heart of evangelization and mission, is well rooted in the Catholic tradition. It concerns all Christians, not just those who are members of a particular group or movement.
St. Paul, as with the Ephesians Christian community, makes this appeal: “Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication.” (Ep 6:18)
May that request be an invitation for us to turn to the Father, in the Spirit of Jesus.
The course includes Mass, Holy Hour and charismatic praise and worship on a daily basis, as well as silent Eucharistic adoration, intercessory rosary, various talks on intercession, intercession outreach in groups/prophetic intercession in groups, and so on.
Why an ITC?
The first Intercession Training Course (ITC) was organized in Trois Rivières, (Canada) in 2015. 500 people from 31 countries participated.
Sensing the powerful move of the Spirit, and desiring to make the information and experience as available to as many people as possible, ICCRS has decided to offer ITCs in all continents, regions and nations that would like to host the course.
The ICCRS Intercession Training Course is a way for ICCRS to deepen intercession in the Church worldwide. ICCRS is pleased to partner with charismatic realities worldwide in order to provide this programme that will train and equip those who sense a calling for intercession and to promote the ministry of intercession. The Catholic Charismatic Renewal responds to this urgent need by doing all we can to deepen the ministry of intercession!
The goal of the ITC is to train intercessors and potential intercessors in serving the Church in the ministry of prophetic intercession in the power of the Holy Spirit. We provide this programme locally during 4 full days of training (6 days in total, including the arrival and departure days).
At ICCRS we are convinced that intercession is the need of the hour, for the Church and for the world. We need to build up and strengthen the army of intercessors worldwide so that a new Pentecost can renew the face of the earth.
Several topics will be discussed such as:
What is intercession? Deepening our understanding
The call and urgency of intercession
Spiritual warfare in intercession
The repentant intercessor
Suffering and intercession
The four wheels of intercession: Personal prayer, Word of God, Sacraments and fellowship
Tools for effective intercession
Several ICCRS Council members will be present:
The President, Mrs. Michelle Moran (England), will be represented by Mr. Jean-Christophe Sakiti (Togo), ICCRS councilor and acting chairman for the ICCRS Sub-Committee in Africa, AFSCI, Mr. Cyril John (India), former vice-president of ICCRS council, former council member and course director for the ICCRS Intercession Training Course (ITC); He is chairman of ICCRS Sub-Committee for Asia-Oceania (ISAO) since 2006. Ms. Denise Bergeron (Canada), director of the community “Alliance Prayer Center” at Trois-Rivières in Canada, ICCRS council member, representing ICCRS for North America.
Members of the Congo Charismatic Renewal Council will be present as well.
His Eminence Laurent, Cardinal MONSENGWO Metropolitan Archbishop of Kinshasa, expressed his gladness and gratitude for this course. We hope that he will be able to preside at one of the ceremonies.
