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!

“Every Single Moment We Have on Earth is a Gift of God ... Only by the Grace of God” - July 19, 2024


Morning by Morning, July 19 - “Every Single Moment We Have on Earth is a Gift of God ... Only by the Grace of God”


Good morning, Lord Jesus. “King of Kings and Lord of Lords,” come rule and reign in my heart, my life, my community, my nation, and throughout the Earth today and every day to come (Revelation 19:16). ...


As I wait for Your leading this morning, I’m reminded of the honor and praise given to You last night from the world-wide platform of a man running for President of the United States of America. So many of the words I heard spoken were filled with honest gratitude and humble awareness of Your Presence and protection in his life. Though my wife jokingly made fun of my manhood, I was moved to tears in many moments of the evening, as I found my heart filled with hope that’s grounded in You.


Words like this:


“Every single moment we have on Earth is a gift from God.”


“I stand before you only because of the grace of Almighty God.”


As Rev. Franklin Graham observed, “President Trump had a near death experience, no question.... When we go through those experiences, it changes us.”


Regardless of politics or political leanings, You’re calling us all to lean on You and not our own understanding or wisdom or protection in these challenging days. As Your Word demands:


“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

And lean not on your own understanding;

In all your ways acknowledge Him,

And He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).


“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning” (James 1:17).


We must make every moment count, with the little time we have, in the opportunities we’ve been granted. We must “Fight the good fight of the faith, lay hold of eternal life, to which (we) were also called....” (1 Timothy 6:12). “Whatever (we) do, (we are to) do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31).


Throughout our land, there’s a stirring of hope that begins with this humility of heart. There’s a stirring of faith that follows a passion to fight for what is right through the power and provision, the wisdom and understanding, the protection and guidance, that only You alone can provide. It’s “only by the grace of God” because as You said long ago, “He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).


Praise God, we are not without You. You are with us. And I’m moved with the hope and faith to believe that You are stretching out Your hand over us as “one nation under God” again. That’s my prayer and that’s my hope. As I also heard last night, “I’m not telling anybody what to do; I’m just telling what I know.” For me, I’m just expressing the faith and hope that I have.


“Now may the God of hope fill (us) with all joy and peace in believing, that (we) may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13). In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.


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

My friend, may you be stirred with hope and faith to believe God for good things in your life and your land by the grace of God Alimighy alone, in Jesus' name. Amen. God bless you, my friend! And you have a great day!
