Inner healing refers to God’s freeing us from deep emotional wounds that cause our suffering. Due to living in a fallen world, we all experience suffering, sin, and illness that needs healing. Also, other people inflict hurts that cause us to be wounded, and we hurt and injure ourselves. Today, many people remain weighed down by burdens that need to be released and do not enjoy the freedom the Lord desires for them.
God’s heart is for the healing of all his children. Jesus declared in His first sermon recorded in Luke 4:18–19 that He was carrying out His Father’s plan to set people free and heal the brokenhearted. Unfortunately, many people hide their pain, not understanding that exposing their wounds is the beginning of their healing. Freedom occurs when our hurts are brought to the light for Jesus to heal.
Inner healing is a ministry of compassion. Each prayer session is unique, as the Lord heals emotional wounds and restores hearts. The Lord speaks to His children in a way they will understand as long as they are willing to receive what He has to share. Each healing was different and unique in the Bible—the Lord did not use a specific formula. The Lord will meet prayer recipients wherever they are.
Prayer ministers ask for the Holy Spirit’s guidance at the beginning of the prayer time, and they listen for His direction throughout the session. Negative ancestral patterns and unhealthy relationships are identified and broken, removing their negative impact on the person and their descendants. The prayer recipient requests and receives blessings from the Holy Spirit in place of these negative patterns. Together the prayer recipient, the prayer ministers, and the Holy Spirit identify lies the person has believed. The lies are renounced and replaced with the Lord’s truth. Next, in a divine encounter, the Lord heals the person’s wounded heart.
The good news is the Lord is waiting and desiring to heal our pain and the wounded areas of our hearts. When we offer him our hurts, he heals in exchange. Psalm 147:3 affirms, He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. We only need to ask.
We believe inner healing prayer is the most effective way to receive divine restoration and freedom.
