Is Sozo Counselling?
Sozo is not counselling and at no point will counselling be performed during a session. The goal of Sozo ministers is to help fellow Christians overcome obstacles and road blocks that have become a hinderance to living life to the fullest.
What is the most significant aspect of Sozo ministry?
Forgiveness is vital element in Sozo ministry. True freedom can only come through the avenue of forgiveness. Every Christian should cultivate a lifestyle of forgiveness and Sozo helps give you the tools to be quick to forgive others and yourself.
Can one Sozo session heal a lie that has been believed for many years?
Yes it can. Once the Holy Spirit brings healing to the first time the lie was settled into your spirit, any future lie experiences will realign to The truth.
Is it difficult for a person to hold onto their freedom?
After receiving freedom, individuals will learn healthy tools they can use to maintain their freedom through difficult times. Individuals are given post-prayer instructions after each session. Keeping connected to a local church, spending time with God, and reading His word are an important continuation in the walk of freedom. A subsequent Sozo session may be necessary as a “wellness check”, especially in difficult seasons. Pursuing ongoing Pastoral counselling may also prove helpful.
Why Sozo Ministry?
Sozo prayer deals with issues hindering our personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. With a healed connection, we can more easily walk in the destiny to which we have been called.
Sozo prayer is simple, fast, Spirit-led and effective. It removes the clutter, so we are able to have clear perspective in our day to day lives.
The Sozo Prayer Ministry Team believes EVERY person can hear God’s voice and the most life‐changing moments are when He speaks to our hearts.
Who should consider having a Sozo?
People who feel they are not growing in their relationship with God.
People who do not seem to be hearing Him.
People who desire greater freedom.
People who desire greater intimacy with the Lord.
Sozo is for everyone!
Who will be praying with me?
Two Sozo team members will pray with you privately in an office at the designated location (usually a church office). Normally, men pray with men and women with women.
How long is a Sozo Ministry session?
A Sozo session usually lasts 2 - 2.5 hours.
Will I have to share things I don't want to?
Absolutely not. Your Sozo prayer time is completely Holy Spirit led. Our Lord is gentle and kind and will only lead you to places that you are able to go. Sozo is not about exposing sin, rather it removes barriers that hinder your relationship with the Lord. Everything shared in your prayer time is up to you and kept completely confidential.
Will I have to keep coming back for Sozo sessions?
Generally, a follow-up appointment is not necessary. Your session will equip you with tools that can be used in your daily walk with the Lord.
If you feel like coming back, you are welcome to come again 6 months after your Sozo. This may happen when the freedom you gained in your first session leads you to wanting freedom in another area.
Who is the Sozo team accountable to?

Sozo Canada is accountable to the International Bethel Sozo Organization.
