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!

“It Is Good to Be Near God” - April 11, 2024


Morning by Morning, April 11 - “It Is Good to Be Near God”


Good morning, Lord Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit and give me Your perspective, as I draw near to You first thing this morning and then go about my day. ...


“Yet I am always with you;

    You hold me by my right hand.

You guide me with Your counsel,

    and afterward You will take me into glory.

Whom have I in heaven but You?

    And earth has nothing I desire besides You.

My flesh and my heart may fail,

    but God is the strength of my heart

    and my portion forever.

Those who are far from You will perish;

    You destroy all who are unfaithful to You.

But as for me, it is good to be near God.

    I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge;

    I will tell of all Your deeds” (Psalm 73:23-28).


When I come into Your Presence, You give me Your perspective. When I draw near to You, You draw near to me. When I make You my refuge, You strengthen my heart and lift up my faith. You put Your thoughts in my mind and Your desires in my heart. You guide me with Your counsel. You remind me You’re always with me and that I am always with You.


“As for me, it is good to be near God.”


Thank You for the invitation and the gift to draw near to You. This could never be possible without the sacrifice of Your love and the pouring out of Your blood, that any veil between us could be torn away and every sin of mine between us could be washed away.


So I will not despise my gift or squander my inheritance. Morning by Morning, moment by moment--step by step on my spiritual journey with You through all the troubles and challenges of this world--I will draw near to You and remember that You are always here with me. And with a full heart and a clear mind from the perspective of being in Your Presence, “I will tell of all Your deeds.”


“As for me, it is good to be near God.” In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

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

My friends, may you be near God, letting Him give you His perspective as you abide secure in the refuge of His Presence, in Jesus' name. God bless you, my friend! And you have a great day!
