Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the two major components of ritual practice in Ephphata: Charismatic prayer and ritual healing. The above mentioned ritual events are indeed associated with two major ritual places, Nkol-Eton and Mangen, which are the object of much attention in Ephphata. These events are treated here separately for the purpose of analysis, as it is believed in Ephphata that Charismatic prayer itself can have healing effects. The chapter focuses on the format of Charismatic prayer in Ephphata with an emphasis on the workings of human agency in the related processes of localization. In Nkol- Eton, there is more emphasis on Charismatic prayer (praise and adoration) and this means less focus on healing rituals; whereas in Mangen the emphasis is shifted to intercession which involves intensive healing prayers for each patient. Hebgas understanding of Charismatic prayer is encapsulated in the two concepts of adoration and worship.
