Healing Hearts is not Christian counseling, but prayer ministry, which is based on Elijah House ministry. Elijah House is an international, inter-denominational ministry bringing healing and restoration to broken relationship. It is pastoral in nature, based on scriptural principles and led by the Holy Spirit. Elijah House’s vision is to “restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers and to “restore all things.” (Malachi 4:5-6, Matthew 17:11) Through this ministry, God has brought healing and restoration to individuals, families, churches and communities.
Many of our struggles are rooted in our responses to yesterday's wounds and decisions we've made as a result of these wounds. We may “know” the right way to respond, or may know what the Bible says, but many of us are not able to practice the knowledge we already know. We try to forget “what lies behind” (Philippians 3:13) by ignoring the past rather than by letting the Holy Spirit search the innermost parts of our heart in order to allow Jesus to deal specifically with deeply ingrained attitudes and decisions we’ve made in the past. We have not actually "put away childish things" (I Corinthians 13:11), but have tried to control them, and allowed them to be part of our Christian walk.
These roots (decisions) cannot be erased by efforts of good behavior, but are changed by the power of the Cross; when we identify and bring these roots to death in Christ, we can be truly free.
Elijah House calls this process sanctification, which is a process of renewing our mind and receiving a new heart, which naturally changes behavior (Ephesians 4:21-24).
Healing Hearts in prayer ministry facilitates the process of sanctification (Ephesians 4:21-24). We facilitate this process by, following what the Holy Spirit wants to accomplish in a person’s life in a ministry session. We look at the wounded areas in a person’s life (in their heart), where they’ve made decisions about people, life and God. We look for “fruit” – unforgiveness, repeated behavior, recurring patterns of struggle, or areas where a person feels blocked in their relationship with God or others. As we do this, the Holy Spirit brings healing and they begin to change in ways they’ve never thought possible. This is what the Bible calls transformation. They start to mature in their walk with God and in their relationship with others. They start to walk in abundant life and their destiny.
