About Messiah Ministries

Jesus came to heal the brokenhearted and set the captives free (Isaiah 61; Luke 4). He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Now, as the Father sent the Son, so the Son sends us in the power of the Holy Spirit (John 20). We are to be the body of Christ, filled with the Spirit of Christ, continuing the ministry of Christ to a broken, fallen, and hurting world.

“Messiah Ministries is a prayer ministry founded for inner healing, deliverance, and spiritual formation through sanctification. We minister in the diverse traditions of the Christian faith in America and abroad. We lead retreats, prayer revivals, teaching conferences, schools of spiritual ministry, and offer personal spiritual direction and prayer ministry. We are actively engaged in city-wide and regional prayer movements, bringing unity to the Body of Christ.”

Wounds of rejection, roots of bitterness, shadows of fear, walls of isolation, and shame of sin or abuse—the unhealed pain of life steals the blessings of abundant life Jesus makes available through the power of the Cross. They block us from intimacy with God, divide us from loving one another, and imprison us from living out our destiny in Christ. This is the ministry of spiritual transformation through "inner healing"—healing from the inside out. We need healing from our wounds and deliverance from our bondage. In this hour, our Father in Heaven is pouring out His Holy Spirit with great anointing and power to prepare the Bride and Body of Christ for His coming in glory--one day in the skies and every day in our lives (1 Thessalonians 4).

God will have a people on this earth, shining as light in the midst of the darkness, who display both His nature and His authority, emptied of themselves and "filled with all the fullness of God" (Ephesians 3). With Christ in us, the hope of glory, we will arise and shine for our light has come! (Isaiah 60) With the love of Christ flowing through us, the glory of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2).

The vision and calling of Messiah Ministries is to do our part by the power of the Holy Spirit to cleanse, heal, equip, and empower the body of Christ to continue the ministry of Christ by “Preparing the Way of the Lord” and “Ministering the Healing Love of God.” This is the ministry of healing and deliverance—healing the broken and setting the captives free to be like Jesus—through Spirit-led prayer ministries of spiritual transformation and spiritual direction. If this is your heart's cry, contact us to see how we can come alongside you, your church or ministry in your quest to honor God, know your identity and fulfill your destiny.

God bless you!

“Times of Refreshing” from “The Presence of the Lord” - May 21, 2024


Morning by Morning, May 21 - “Times of Refreshing” from “The Presence of the Lord”


Good morning, Lord Jesus. As I draw near to You, I know You draw near to me--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of God (James 4:8). ...


“Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the Presence of the Lord, and that He may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets long ago” (Acts 3:19-21).


Last night I had the honor of answering a cry for help from a family to come pray for the cleansing and freedom of their home from dramatic occurrences of spiritual oppression they’ve been suffering. You responded with such powerful sings of supernatural breezes throughout their home and property that I was moved to keep declaring “Times of refreshing! Times of refreshing!” thinking of this Scripture from the days of Pentecost.


Thank You for this day of personal Pentecost of this family and their home! Thank You for this mighty move of Your Holy Spirit as “a mighty rushing wind” of Your Spirit “filled the entire house!” (Acts 2:2). It was like swirls of cool and refreshing air in spiritual whirlwinds throughout their home, after our time of repentance for the sins upon the land and prayer for freedom from oppression we prayed from the court of heaven (Daniel 7:12). As when You led Elisha to cleanse the spring of water with salt, so You cleansed this home with Your Holy Spirit (2 Kings 2:19-22).


Thank You for the power of the blood of Jesus! “And (we), who were dead in (our) trespasses and the uncircumcision of (our) flesh, God made alive together with Him, having forgiven us all of trespasses, by cancelling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This He set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in it” (Colossians 2:13-15).


Through repentance and prayer we can embrace and enjoy Your “times of refreshing” in “the Presence of the Lord!” We can “rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory!” (1 Peter 1:8) For “in Your Presence there is fullness of joy!” (Psalm 16:11) In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged today. In the love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

My friend, may your heart and your home be filled with time of refreshing in the Presence of the Lord, in Jesus' name. God bless you, my friend! And you have a great day!
