What we do.
Healing prayer is a two-hour, Holy Spirit directed and empowered session. During this time, God brings healing and deliverance from the bondage of soul wounds and lies. The result is spiritual freedom and a more intimate connection with Jesus. This typically results in the recipient more clearly hearing from God through vision and thought as well as becoming activated in the gifts of Holy Spirit.
How we got here.

The divided heart.
Many Christians today are existing in the gap between the abundant life that scripture describes and the life they are actually experiencing. They are saved, yet continue to struggle as they live with the bondage of a divided heart.

There is a high probability that the person sitting next to you in church is suffering from wounds of the soul that need to be healed and strongholds that need to be broken, yet they go unnoticed by the church at large and are not free.
The whole heart
Jesus’ mission is to free us from all bondage as described in Isaiah 61:1.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
Because the Lord has anointed me
To bring good news to the afflicted;
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to captives
And freedom to prisoners.
THE BIBLICAL BASIS
The biblical basis for what we do is found in the following passage. This passage contains the three ways the enemy restricts our freedom. 1. Demonic attachments (strongholds), 2. Lies we are believing about ourselves (speculations), 3. Lies we are believing about God (every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God)
2 Corinthians 10:4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of strongholds. 5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.
the way it's done
Each person is led through a series of prayers which God answers directly to them through thoughts and mental pictures. A completely new level of intimacy with God and freedom of the soul results.
