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!

Looking to God, Trusting His Will - November 30, 2023


Morning by Morning, November 30 - Looking to God, Trusting His Will


Good morning, Lord Jesus. Take me by the hand and lead me by the heart into all You have for me today--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of God. ...


“Look to Me, and be saved,

All you ends of the earth!

For I am God, and there is no other.

I have sworn by Myself;

The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness,

And shall not return,

That to Me every knee shall bow,

Every tongue shall take an oath.

He shall say,

‘Surely in the Lord I have righteousness and strength.

To Him men shall come,

And all shall be ashamed

Who are incensed against Him.

In the Lord all the descendants of Israel

Shall be justified, and shall glory’” (Isaiah 45:22-25).


You say “Look to Me,” but we live in a world that’s looking everywhere else but You. You say You alone are God and “there is no other,” but we live in a world where each one seeks his own god or even exalts himself as his own god. But there is salvation in no other. There is no God but You. And in the end there will come a day when every knee will bow to You and every tongue shall confess to You that You alone are Lord and Your word alone is true (Isaiah 45:23 affirmed in Philippians 2:10).


To look to You is to seek You, to pursue You, to honor You, to trust You, to submit to you, to set You as the goal and the prize and the standard of our lives. We “look” to You to “be saved,” but it’s not just to be saved to go to Heaven when we die, but it’s also to look to You to have Heaven in us now, with our hearts open to You and our lives committed to You, trusting in You alone for our salvation in eternity to come and in eternity now. When the eternity of forever intersects with the moment of eternity taking place right now, it’s called “the present.” And I want to be found seeking You, embracing You right here, right now, in this present moment and also through every moment of my day.


So I begin my day looking to You, trusting Your will, entrusting my life and every moment of my day to You. You be Lord of my life; You be King of my heart. You send forth Your word into my world to establish Your will in my life and through my life, for my life belongs to You. Your word will not return empty, but will accomplish all Your purposes (Isaiah 55:11).


You already know and You’ve already declared “the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure’” (Isaiah 46:10). So give me Your grace to yield to Your will and trust in Your ways. Form Your thoughts in my mind and Your desires in my heart, so my will is aligned with Your will and the days of my life are aligned with the plans of Your purposes. As You have said in Your Word which will never fail, “I also will bring it pass. I have purposed it; I will also do it” (Isaiah 46:11). In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

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

My friend, may you begin your day looking to God, as you keep looking to Him throughout the moments of your day as He leads you in His will according to His word, in Jesus' name. God bless you, my friend! And you have a great day!
