As children of God, we have access to our heavenly Father to give Him our pain and to experience freedom and abundance, which was purchased by Jesus' death and resurrection.
The problem is, we don't always know how to get rid of our pain and give it to Him or we have a hard time connecting with Him in the middle of our stress.
That's where an Encounter session comes in. It is a type of prayer ministry session specific to healing the inner part of a person.
This is a time set aside to be in Holy Spirit-led prayer to encounter God and experience a closeness in fellowship with Him.
Do any of these sound like you?
Encounter sessions connect Christians with Jesus to heal emotional wounds and uncover lies while strengthening their relationship with God.
This is a calm and safe process that allows the Lord to speak directly with you.
It is a unique ministry time aimed to get to the root of things hindering your personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and to draw your heart closer to His. With a healed connection, you can walk in the destiny to which you have been called. We will meet and with the help of the Holy Spirit, walk through the process of freedom and wholeness. This is not a counseling session but a time of interacting with Father, Son and Holy Spirit for wholeness and pursuing of your destiny.

Since 2013, I have facilitated inner healing prayer sessions to connect believers to Jesus to heal broken and divided hearts while deepening their personal relationship with Him. Each time has been a beautiful encounter with our Creator. Encounter sessions are fully reliant upon the Holy Spirit and He has unique things to say with each person.
I encourage you to take your next step towards healing and spiritual growth today.Book a Session Now
"I heard directly from God, and every bit of it was comforting, healing and relieving. I have a feeling of total trust in God, that I literally have nothing to fear. Every dream and vision God has put in my heart I know is absolutely going to come true because I have been released of all the heartache and shame."
"Before I had my prayer session, I was feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and embarrassed. Diana was very personal and caring, and our time was filled with scripture. Now, I feel much more free and clear and I can hear specifically from God on how He wants me to grow and change."
"If you're on the fence, I would absolutely do it. It is very safe and Diana is wonderful as she leads you through the session. I loved my session and it is so incredible to see where Jesus leads you for healing! "
"I have never had an inner healing session before so I was nervous but Diana was so kind and patient and explained it all to me so I felt comfortable letting go and trusting the process. I feel totally calm and lighter. Through the inner healing session, I have clarity and wisdom to move forward! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. It is worth every penny!"
"Try it at least once because releasing old wounds (and the lies that we allow ourselves to believe from them) is freeing. It is amazing how much can happen in just one hour. "
"Diana created an environment that was safe to share and asked timely questions to help me move though what I was dealing with and into a place of peace and love. Now, I can easily return to that place of peace with the tools Diana gave me whenever the stress or tension returns. I feel the Holy Spirit working in me and connecting on such a deep level it is intertwined with everything I do! "
"I instantly connected with Diana because of her strength and warmth. She led me well in our inner healing session while also encouraging me to connect deeply with Jesus. I didn't feel forced into anything, but simply invited. Her faith in Jesus' ability to connect and heal strengthened my own faith. I felt free to lean into the process of inner healing and receive."
"Having my inner session with you, Diana was such a blessing. I went in deeper encounters with God. From seeing how much He loves me to also giving me hope for my future. I was so encouraged."
"You can truly trust Diana. She is a daughter of Abba Father, has a great relationship with Yeshua and is led of Holy Spirit to be sensitive to who you are individually not just a subject to counsel with set answers. Diana facilitates a deeper more intimate relationship with our LORD YAHWEH YESHUA with a session that is refreshing to your spirit and soul."
An Encounter session is an individual 1-on-1 prayer appointment for divine heart healing with a trained inner healing prayer minister. It is a transformative time for incredible healing with Jesus that most often leads to powerful breakthrough. You are not only prayed for, but prayed with. The bible-based, Spirit-led session will guide you into an encounter with the Lord and often reveal hidden wounds or lies/ungodly beliefs that are replaced with Truth and inspired revelation. There are various inner healing approaches used around the world, but I am trained in Heart-Sync.
Sessions are typically one-on-one and in a confidential, private meeting, whether online or in-person. (However, group sessions can be scheduled. Please notify us in advance if you would like to host a group prayer session.)
If this is the first time you have had an inner healing prayer session, we would start by setting aside an hour to meet.
We begin with prayer and a time with reflecting on a memory when you either felt the closest to God or when you felt loved. (The only rule is that it must be a positive memory.)
Then, I walk you through refreshing your connection with Jesus in an interactive conversation with Him. There is also be an opportunity to release any stress or pain that you may be carrying, followed by an infilling of the Holy Spirit.
I recommend you schedule one session and wait at least a couple days before doing your next one. This will allow you to process what God did in your session with Him in your own personal quiet time. Each time you do a prayer session, you will always get something more out of it since we continue to grow and mature over time.
Not only do you get opportunities to release any emotional stress you may be carrying, but you also can grow in your capacity for joy as you are connecting to Jesus in a personal way.
Children are often more positioned to hear God easier than adults because they don't have the mindsets formed from challenging life experiences.
For a session with a child under 13 years old, we would schedule two 30-minute sessions.
We were created by God as a body, soul and spirit. Our soul is made up of our mind, will and emotions. Heart healing is soul care.
The Lord’s mission statement in Isaiah 60:1-3 says: “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.”
The mission in heart healing is to participate in Christ’s mission and to partner with Him in the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5: 11-21). We can do this in our individual prayer and connection with the Lord. However, there is power in agreement when we do this with a prayer partner and especially one that is trained biblically and specifically in inner healing and/or deliverance ministry. Here are some verses that encourage this work:
Matthew 18:20 NIV
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
Galatians 6:2 NIV
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
James 5:16 NIV
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
Romans 12:2 NIV
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Psalm 51:6 NKJV
Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.
Ezekiel 11:19 NIV
I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.
Psalm 34:18 NIV
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Proverbs 17:22 NIV
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Psalm 109:21-22 NIV
But you, Sovereign Lord, help me for your name’s sake; out of the goodness of your love, deliver me. For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
Science is merely an observation of God’s creation. God created our brains in two hemispheres. Each hemisphere has identical structures but different functions. We work best when both hemispheres are healthy and work together. The right hemisphere of the brain is the seat of our emotions and is known for experiences we have in life. The left hemisphere of the brain is the seat of our reasoning; it is logical and analytical. When we are emotionally triggered, the left part of the brain is difficult to access while the right part is accessible. When our heart is overwhelmed with feelings, we tend to do what we have learned in order to survive. The logical part of our brain gets hijacked under intense stress and goes online again when a crisis is over. Therefore, methodologies aimed to heal our emotions and renew our mind are key in becoming more whole-hearted. A person’s belief systems and perspectives must be challenged with the Truth of God’s Word in an encounter with His Love. As we develop our emotional capacity, we are able to maintain connection with our logical brain and process life in wholeness.
We are created for joy! Secular neuroscience says that our brain defines joy as knowing that someone is glad to be with you and you don’t have to earn it. When we spend time in the presence of someone who enjoys being with us without a need for performance, neural pathways in the brain become active and formed while we increase our relational capacity. The more we do this in safe relationships, the more we can tolerate intense situations before our brain-mind system disconnects. Likewise, the more we spend time in the presence of the Lord, the more we become transformed, causing our thoughts to become more like His thought, and even reflecting His emotions. When we choose to engage in regular time with God in a personal way, the byproduct of this relationship builds our maturity both relationally and psychologically. It also says in the Bible that we "enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name" (Psalm 100:4). As we spend time thanking God and focusing on His presence, we hear Him more clearly because our mind's attention and hearts affection are properly aligned.
