Derek Prince as a Prophetic Mentor – John Boruff

Derek PrinceI have recently been in prayer meetings with a prophetic minister, with a phenomenal word of knowledge, healing, and deliverance gifting. He prophesied to me that I was called to similar ministry. I asked him for some pointers on starting a prophetic ministry, and after he said it was necessary to get a $1,400 501(c)(3) non-profit organization status; and settling on a ministry name–True Life Ministries–he also said, “If you stay in the Word (Bible), the words of knowledge will continue to flow…also, any books by Derek Prince; and studying 1 Corinthians.”

I have also noticed that James Goll, a renowned teacher on prophetic ministry, has cited Derek Prince as an influence. Here are some materials by Prince on spiritual gifts taken from Goll’s books (The Coming Prophetic Revolution; The Seer; The Beginner’s Guide to Hearing God; Prayer Storm):

1971 – The Nine Gifts of the Holy Spirit (tape series)
1971 – How to Judge Prophecy

1976 – How to Fast Successfully
1986 – Fasting
2002 – Shaping History Through Prayer and Fasting
