I am available for weekend retreats, or a one day seminar that implements worship, teaching, and ministry times of personal prayer, for all who desire. There will be time for heart encounters through contemplative (LISTENING) experiences as we enjoy His Presence together. In all of our brokenness the Lord desires to heal. Jesus proclaimed His mission statement in Luke 4:18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, preach deliverance to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those that are bruised, and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord." I believe this is my mission statement in life as well. These seminars and retreats are for any who long for a deeper, more intimate relationship with Jesus. He said, "Come to Me all who are burdened and heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
Attend a seminar, and experience true love and peace that will impact and carry you the rest of your days. God longs for encounter with each of us. When we are willing to be still and know Him...we will come to know who we are with new clarity. We love because He first loved us, and as we get to the place of putting first things first, everything else around us is put into proper perspective as well. These times of ministry will provide healing for your hearts, and physical relief and healing may also occur if needed.
I reside in Kansas City and have been on staff at the International House of Prayer as a missionary since June 2002. My book, Longing for You...the Journey from Intercession to Intimacy, is about intimacy with the One who loves you more than anyone else is able. My passion is to see all who are longing for encounter with God, to have a personal experience of His love. I am confident intimacy with Christ is the main reality that sustains martyrs as they are facing hideous and brutal death, as well as being a needed reality for all who will stand victorious in love in the midst of crisis that occurs all around. I have been teaching a contemplative class on the mission base since the fall of 2006. I have spoken at churches, pastor's conferences, women's retreats, Aglow meetings, and Healing Summits. I have also gone to pray on site in the Philippines, England, Malta, and Romania. Prayer is now my full time job...and joy!

ANSWERS before you ask
Is this longing, Jesus longing for me, or me longing for Him? The answer is "YES." Jesus longs for each of us, and He demonstrated that on the cross. There all doubt is silenced. In the silence, His Voice of Love will resound in our heart. His love will floods over us as we be still to know Him. We in turn develop a longing for Him that will never be satisfied.
Who should attend the seminar? Anyone who desires true fulfillment from experiencing God's love is welcome. All who want to be released in freedom to love Him, and others the way He intends are invited. Age is not a factor.
How much time does the seminar take? The seminar is ideally 12 to 15 hours long with breaks in between. It can be hosted on a Friday night, Saturday morning and afternoon, with a closing session Saturday evening. It can also be held as a marathon all day on Saturday. I am also willing to stay over and share Sunday mornings. Details can be arranged at the time of scheduling the event. There are 4 or 5 sessions total, and those can be modified as needed. I am also willing to come in for one service as an introduction to the contemplative lifestyle.
How much does it cost? The seminar is to be hosted by a local church or ministry which covers the traveling arrangements and accommodations, with a love offering provided at the conclusion of the ministry time. I will have copies of my book on sight available for purchase as well.
How can you host a LONGIN4YOU Seminar? Simply email me at debracossu@ihop.org or call me at 816-517-2072 concerning your requests.

Arrangements need to be made at least one month in advance, as I prefer to only travel one weekend a month.
As a Chaplain, I also minister in grief recovery. Encountering Christ within heals all the wounds of life. I teach meditation based on the Word of God. The Word of God is truly ALIVE, powerful and sharper than a double-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). As the Word enters the heart it literally gives life. I have witnessed that as people being to fellowship with the indwelling Holy Spirit, Who is life, and meditate on the Word, which is alive; they are positioning themselves to receive physical healing, as well as deep in their soul. Why wait any longer for encounter? CONTACT ME...AND WE CAN WAIT TOGETHER IN HIS PRESENCE!
