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!

Impartation of Joy - February 22, 2024


Morning by Morning, February 22 - Impartation of Joy


Good morning, Lord Jesus. Fill my heart with Your light and my mouth with Your words. ...


“The joy of the Lord is (my) strength” (Nehemiah 8:10).

I’m amazed what a difference joy makes. People are drawn to it. People are hungry for it. Sometimes they don’t even know how much they need it until they see it.


And joy is transferrable. It’s contagious!


This is my third and last week of ministry in India. And among all the things I’ve seen You do -- moving in the power of the Holy Spirit and the love of God to save souls, heal hearts, break chains, awaken revival -- seeing faces light up with joy, seeing sad eyes start to sparkle with delight, seeing the joy of the Lord ignite a healing from the inside out in so many hearts -- has been one my greatest joys! Because it’s all a manifestation of Your joy!


In the middle of my journeys, I joined a couple from my home base church and weekly course on inner healing in Fredericksburg, Texas--Allen and Molly Nance--who were visiting the Children’s Home north of Hyderabad they have sponsored for years. One morning we were blessing the children on their way to school with a snack for the day, as we took them by the hands. But first they needed to recite their memory verse for the day -- “The joy of the Lord is (my) strength!”


As soon as they said the words of Your Word, their faces lit up with joy! Then they ran off into their day. Joy was imparted! Joy was ignited! And they carried that joy -- Your joy -- everywhere they went and to everyone they met.


Fill me with more joy today, Lord. It’s part of our inheritance as children of God, part of our inheritance in the kingdom of God. “For the kingdom of God is ... righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit!” (Romans 14:17) In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

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

My friend, may you be filled with the of the Lord today, in Jesus' name. God bless you, my friend! And you have a great day!
