Fervent Prayer Ministry of Inner Healing and Deliverance

What exactly is inner healing? Like deliverance, inner healing is a rediscovery of an ancient ministry. Instead of calling it "inner healing" what it truly is and should be called isĀ 
"prayer and counsel for sanctification and transformation."

It is not merely a way to restore hurting people, although it does do
that. It is a ministry within the Body of Christ to enable believers to
come to a more effective and continual death on the cross and
resurrection into the fullness of life in Christ. Inner healing is a
tool the Lord uses to mature His people.

"Speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him
who is the Head, even Christ."(Ephesians 4:15). Inner healing is
actually the application of the crucified and resurrected life of Jesus
Christ and His blood to those parts of my heart and yours that did not
fully "get the message" when we first received Jesus as Savior. Paul
wrote, "Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an
evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God" (Hebrews
3:12). In some areas deep in our hearts we may not have believed and
accepted the good news of our death and rebirth in Him, as we should
have, so the fullness of His work has not yet happened for us. We are
new creatures in Christ, but some of our old self-centered selfish
character continues to act in its ugly ways, as though we had not yet
received the Lord. Inner healing then, is evangelism to the unbelieving
areas of believers' hearts. Inner healing is a tool of prayer and
counseling to make salvation as full and effective in all dimensions of
our life and character as possible. In like manner, when we receive
Jesus as Lord and Savior, positionally we possess the perfection of our
souls. But we must yet cross our own inner Jordan's, slay our own giants
and conquer the fenced and walled areas of our own stony hearts to
possess what we already own. Inner healing is a discipline of prayer and
counsel to accomplish that task. May God Bless your walk of faith.
