about us

inner-healing ministry team

Perhaps now, more than ever, the church needs sons and daughters pursuing holiness and wholeness. We want to partner with Jesus to bring you the freedom and healing you need to grow closer to Him and follow Him more radically. 

Because of this, we have launched a completely online inner healing platform for you to receive prayer from a team of trained prayer ministers who have been equipped to walk with you in a prayer session.


Step 1:  Application

After submitting a request for prayer, you will receive a short video to watch and some information to prepare you for your session. 

Step 2:  Meet for Your  Session

Each session lasts up to 2 hours and will be conducted solely over Zoom.  Due to demand we can accommodate one session per request and possibly a second one if it is determined it is needed.



How many sessions can i have?

In order to reach as many people as possible, we are asking that people understand that we can offer them one session with the possibility of a second session, if necessary.

Can i have an in-person session?

Unfortunately, we can only meet with people over Zoom.  Zoom is a free online platform that will take only a few extra minutes on your part to set up for your session.

what is the cost?

There is no cost for a session, but we do ask people to consider making a donation to bless others who also would like to benefit from this ministry.

Who leads my session?

You will be assigned a certified prayer minister.  They will have an intercessor along with them to pray for you during your session.
