The Sozo Ministry at Prayer Mountain, CO is a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry in which the main aim is to get to the root of those things which are hindering the believer’s personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Once barriers are removed the believer will hear and know God better, enabling them to walk in the destiny to which they have been called.
- Sozo is an inner healing/deliverance ministry.
- Sozo is not counseling but a Spirit-led and effective way to remove deep barriers.
- Sozo finds issues quickly instead of taking a long time to examine the past.
- Sozo helps heal and build our relationship with God, enable us to fulfill our destiny.
Using a range of tools and following the Holy Spirit, wounds are healed, strongholds broken, truth revealed, and “doors” to past damage are closed. Sometimes the Lord will direct prophetic ministry as well.
A BIBLICAL BASIS
Sozo is the Greek word which translates as “saved, healed, and delivered.” Sozo contains the whole package of being made whole or well.
- Salvation - "That if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you shall be saved (sozo).” - Romans 10:9
- Healing - "But Jesus turning and seeing her said ‘Daughter take courage your faith has made you well (sozo) and at once the woman was made well (sozo).” – Matthew 9:22
- Deliverance - "And those who had seen it reported to them how the man who was demon-possessed had been made well (sozo).” – Luke 8:36
WHAT TO EXPECT
Each Sozo is different because each individual is different and Holy Spirit will lead the session uniquely for each person. Our goal is to connect you with the Godhead through minister-facilitated inquiry with Him. Those receiving ministry will be asked to report what they are hearing, seeing, sensing or feeling or if they are getting nothing. For those who struggle with hearing from God usually there usually is great breakthrough in this area. As lies and wounds are exposed, the Sozo Minister will lead through the healing process. If any negative spiritual entities are uncovered, they will be dealt with in a gentle, honoring but powerful way. Often there will be more than one Sozo minister (up to 3) as additional eyes and ears to facilitate to process.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. Is Sozo Confidential?
Ministry is confidential unless there are legal issues that are to be reported (danger to self or other/ongoing abuse…). Sometimes it will be necessary to share information with other Prayer Mountain ministers to facilitate to process.
2. How long does it take?
Sessions take 11/2 hours to 3 hours (usually around 2 hours when time permits).
Sozo is not counseling and is not designed as a long term ongoing ministry. Ultimately the goal is to connect individuals with the Godhead and give them tools to maintain their freedom and extend their freedom. However, in certain cases it will require more than one session.
3. Can children/family members receive this ministry?
Sozo Ministry is done on an individual basis. If families/couples are requesting this ministry, it will be done on an individual basis. Children can receive this ministry. It will be shorter and modified as appropriate. It will be necessary for a parent to be present with young children and often it is desirable for parents to receive ministry first.
4. Is there a fee?
There is a suggested donation of $50 – more or less can be donated. This can donated at the time of the appointment. We suggest donations because we do have overhead and are not externally supported. Each Sozo Minister pours themselves into the process contending for your freedom. Most people have reported that they are so thrilled with the results that they were happy to donate.
5. What if I cannot hear from God?
Scripture says that all believers can hear from God, so it is more an issue of learning how to use the equipment we already have and realizing that His “voice” may be word, a picture, an impression, a sense… Often as lies are uncovered and wounds are healed, the ability to “hear” God’s voice blossoms beautifully. This often is one of the most exciting parts of this ministry.
6. Can unbelievers receive ministry?
Yes. They should know that this is a ministry and we will be talking with God. Unbelievers also hear the voice of God. They are made in His image and He longs for relationship with them. Often as they are healed and delivered they WANT to know this God of love!
7. Are there people who would not benefit as much from this ministry?
Those receiving ministry should be able to communicate back and forth. They should be wanting freedom and have a willingness to cooperate with the process. Those with severe dissociative disorders (”multiple personalities”) would benefit from other ministries. Those that have not had significant deliverance from satanic ritual abuse prior may want to engage other deliverance ministry first. However, Sozo ministry can immensely benefit those having suffered satanic ritual abuse, who have had effective other ministry prior. Also, if those receiving ministry have a strong need to process trauma, they may benefit from more traditional counseling methods. Sozo is designed to heal and deliver rapidly through engaging the Godhead rather than processing.
8. Can I request a female or male Sozo minister?
Yes, you are certainly welcome to do so. However, we are not always able to honor that request, since most of our Sozo Ministers are not fulltime ministers. When possible, we try to have female ministers paired up with female persons receiving ministry and male ministers paired up with male people receiving ministry. We also attempt to have more than one minister at each session as extra eyes and ears, but this is not always possible either.
9. Are Sozo Ministers certified counselors?
No. Sozo Ministers are not counselors. They are anointed ministers who have been well trained in ministry, are mature in the Lord and overseen and accountable to the Sozo Ministry Director under the umbrella of Prayer Mountain. They have intimate growing relationships with God and are able to receive from Him on others’ behalf.
10. Can I expect physical healing from my Sozo?
The primary purpose of Sozo ministry is inner healing, not necessarily physical healing. However, when people are healed of inner lies and wounds and reconnected to the heart of God, it is easy to receive the healing that was already purchased for them on the cross. Any negative spiritual influences that can be associated with sickness and disease lose their foothold to keep sickness in place. We do often pray for physical healing and expect results every time. We have had healing from back pain, ear ringing, dizziness, incision site pain, headaches and skin cancer!!! We even had a spontaneous healing from long standing eczema healed without prayer after a Sozo (see below). God is into the whole package of wholeness and we right with Him!
11. Are you affiliated with any particular church?
The Sozo Ministry originated out of Bethel Church in Redding, CA and we have an ongoing relationship there. Our apostolic covering is from Prayer Mountain, CO in Woodland Park/Divide, CO. We have multiple relationships with churches in the Pikes Peak region. We expect to be expanding our relationships.
We operate in all 9 gifts of the Spirit, but are sensitive to those believers who believe differently or do not do so. We welcome all faiths and nonbelievers as long as there is a sincere desire to walk in new heights of freedom and the willingness to cooperate with the process.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I Skyped with Andy, and when I saw him I rejoiced in the Lord! He was radiating with the presence and the glory of God. I knew that he has received major deliverance, because I had during my intercession time strong manifestations. Hallelujah, thank you Jesus!
I am so grateful to you, Catherine for your love and extra effort to do this SOZO on Skype. He is completely changed, confident, happy and relieved from fears and guilt and shame! And I could see it!
God bless you mightily for your ministry and strengthen and refresh you in body and soul! I dearly love you and you are an example of walking in God’s agape love for me.
I was released and set free from things I did not know I held. I feel able to go out and do the work of the Lord and share in a more personal way. Such freedom I have not felt and I thought I was clean and free before.
“Last year I had experienced some really tough times. God had brought up some past things that He wanted me to deal with. He showed me flashbacks and I was dealing with issues I hadn’t even remembered, emotions that I hadn’t felt in a long time. I was dealing with old wounds and they needed to be worked through.
“I began doing personal Sozos. I went into these sessions not knowing what was going to happen; no expectations. The Holy Spirit walked me through the events, through the pain, and through all the emotions that were so unfamiliar. It was safe, it was gentle, and it was God. I felt years of junk peel away that I was unconsciencely carrying.
I can say now, that I am walking in more freedom than I have ever experienced. Freedom from bondage is amazing and I am very thankful for Sozo, and for what God accomplishes through the sessions.”
“I want to personally thank the Sozo team that helped me with a lot of pain and old personal wounds that I didn't even know I had. I immediately felt the presence and power of the Holy Spirit stripping away years of unresolved and "hidden" issues. I was amazed at how quickly the Holy Spirit brought down years and years of walls I had put up so conveniently to protect myself. I didn't even know what God looked like when it started, but in a little over an hour I could see him very clearly and He became so real and magnificent to me. I am really grateful for this God inspired and God driven ministry. God Bless you all…..Free in Divide…”
“Before hearing about Sozo ministry I had believed that it was normal to take years to be healed of, or "outgrow" pain, bitterness, broken heart, etc. I was surprised and relieved to find that Sozo unearthed the roots of these problems and how quickly the Lord has been able to heal through this. The Sozo ministry has so blessed me helping to quickly identify the source of many personal strongholds in my life. Coming into the first session I was a little nervous, not knowing what to expect but even during my first session I experienced powerful healing from the Lord. I feel that this ministry has provided a safe and comfortable place to seek deliverance and I am grateful for the gentleness and effectiveness of the ministers in this Sozo ministry.”
“The inner healing sessions of my Sozo were very gentle, I was not led anywhere I was not ready to go. Lies that I had believed from being wounded were easily released. I was able to see more clearly what God thinks of me and truly believe it. I had tears of joy over long awaited freedom. It is SO AMAZING how easy but powerful the Sozo session gets to the root and sets you on the path to walking in wholeness and freedom. I highly recommend Sozo to anyone that desires to have a deeper and more intimate relationship with God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. You will be drawn closer, captivated, lavishly loved and free, free, free to be who He created you to be!”
“I just want to tell you that I had eczema on my left wrist for 1.5 years at least, that wouldn't heal whatever I did. After the SOZO it went away all by itself. The skin is the mirror of the soul. And I am healed! I realize a difference already in my heart and more peace. Hallelujah!”
“I enjoyed giving God all those burdens. There was breakthrough as I soaked in God’s Presence. The Ministry Team was kind, understanding, safe and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend it. After prayer, the pain immediately left my hands and I was energized to go out and minister myself!”
“My Sozo experience was wonderful! I had personal breakthrough, breaking off generational sins and curses and replacing them with God’s truth, hope and life! I was left with more peace, hope and joy! I loved the atmosphere and the cozy couches. It was warm and inviting and I immediately felt welcomed. I would highly recommend it!”
“God is awesome and opened a door for us! I had been wanting to home school my kids forever. My husband, Terry, on the other hand, was against home schooling until he saw this year how public school changed our boys for the worse. I had a Sozo on Friday and it open the doors back in my life when I was in school and the system didn't work for me. This same school still has the same system for special needs and was using it on my own boys. So during this Sozo I found out I am honorable and worthy of honor. God, the Father, gave me a voice to speak out of my true identity – who I am. I knew I had "common sense" and never knew it was a gift of God. This wisdom and knowledge I found out I could pour down to my kids and generations to follow. Then it happened – I discovered the will of the Father is home school, and I am capable of home schooling my boys. I left that Sozo being so free of all the shame and negative thought patterns that the school put on me. God opened my eyes to see that everything I was exposed to at school was what the boys were going through. I broke off that generational curse and was handed a shield that bounced back the false identity of my past and is also a shield that I can protect my boys with. Two days later I Googled home school and found out about a local homeschooling group. I went to a meeting on the following night and all my questions were answered and all my fear was gone. The next day I had someone at church give me so many ideas and curriculum for the boys. Five days later was the last day for my boys at public school. God show me how to teach my boys this year. I know I am on the right path of my God Almighty, freed up to teach my boys!”
“I had a very positive and meaningful experience as I went for SOZO ministry this week. I have felt a sense of well being and freedom from inner pain that is more wonderful than I can fully explain. I sense the Father’s expression of tenderness and a caring love. I finally believe that He will protect and care for me as His daughter. The walls came down and the pain left.”
- Doris Pile; Visiting from Nebraska
“My Sozo was wonderful! God showed up and tenderly ministered to my heart. I had asked Him to return my joy and it broke through gloriously! I had not had that for many months. God gently ministered to my heart and loved on me and took many things that needed to go from me. I would highly recommend it!”
“I was a little scared at first but it turned out wonderful and I had such personal breakthrough. It was such an amazing adventure! I had never been through anything like this before.”
"My Sozo experience was wonderful! I had personal breakthrough during and after my session. I have a deeper — more tangible- understanding of Jesus' love for me. It was very exciting to see that Jesus was with me in all the crazy situations as a young girl. The Sozo team was king, understanding, safe and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend it to everyone! I am offering to pay for friends to have a session!"
"The Sozo I had was wonderful! I found freedom from guilt and condemnation as well as a new perspective on my husband marriage. My breakthrough came with kindness, understanding and knowledgeable ministry. It felt safe to disclose hurts, shame and struggles. I recommend it highly!"
"My Sozo WAS wonderful! I received a revelation that God is so GOOD and wants to give me EVERYTHING and Holy Spirit wants to nurture me! I was at first fearful of shame and exposure, but it was a safe place to disclose my personal struggles and shame. During the Sozo my hearing problem, chronic ear ringing, chronic ear fullness, breathing and fogginess/confusion were all healed! Praise God! God also delivered me of years of smoking!! I would highly recommend Sozo!"
"I took Sozo and was released from childhood things and thoughts of inadequacy on approaching projects. I loved the process and questions which gave me release."
"This weekend was an important part o the growing intimacy with the Father for me. Sozo showed me I can hear from the Holy Spirit."
- Anonymous; Colorado
"My Sozo was wonderful! I was concerned about getting vulnerable, but had great breakthrough inwardly and outwardly. I received total healing in my heart, my finances and my body. My Sozo Ministry was kind, understanding and knowledgeable and it was safe to disclose hurts, shame and struggles I had never shared with anyone. I consider Sozo a wonderful God given tool to facilitate healing and help to restore hope and remove hopelessness. I would highly recommend it!"
"I wish I could see my Sozo Minister every day!! I am beginning to understand how strong I really am through Christ Jesus! For the 1st time in my life I feel optimistic about conquering my fears and anxiety and panic. Even though I am still seeing my Sozo Minister and know there is still work to be done, I am confident that after decades of pain and anguish, I am going to find total relief. I hope others with their own struggles will find their way to Prayer Mountain and Sozo."
"My Sozo Experience was wonderful. I had personal breakthrough with a lot of release of pain and anger. The team was kind and understanding and it felt safe to share personal hurts, shame and struggles. I would highly recommend it!"
"I would describe my Sozo experience as wonderful as wonderful with personal breakthrough. I received truth, brought some issues to the Father I hadn't before. It was freeing!"
"I want to let you know that I really had a breakthrough after the last session with you. Things are different for me now in the area of relationships. I received a lot of inner healing and my perception of people accepting me has changed. I also received the love of God so much more and I am confident in in Him and in peace. Thank you so much for your ministry. It is as if the book with a never-ending story of rejection and broken relationships in my past has been closed once for all!!! I praise the Lord for you and your team. This was of bringing inner healing is so effective. I want to learn everything about it and bring it to Germany! Thank you soooooo much, Catherine!"
