Learn how to do inner healing prayer ministry – or take it to another level – to build spiritually healthy individuals, families, and churches…

Elijah House is an inter-denominational group of Christians working together to share the love of Jesus to heal and restore broken relationships, wounded hearts, and lives.

We call God’s people to “restore the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers” and to “restore all things”.


As vicar of St. Mary’s Pro Cathedral, New Plymouth, one of the most valuable initiatives I undertook was to invite Elijah House to conduct a school for myself and seven key people from the parish.

I had a desire to experience emotional healing of hurts which, like many other people, I have carried for most of my life. I certainly was not disappointed. Through the leadership of that School (Michael and Peggy Powell (Wellington) and Duncan Graham (Christchurch), and the grace of the Holy Spirit working in our midst I became a changed man.

As a qualified counsellor I have found EH prayer ministry to be the most valuable ‘method’ of any I have worked with. It is through sensitive prayer and discernment that the leaders invited the Holy Spirit’s presence to work, guide and heal.

We can so easily forget this principle and offer ministry in our own strength, relying upon our own skills. Then we wonder why there hasn’t been lasting change in the other person – so little fruit for our endeavours!

I found the school to be comprehensive and Biblical. It also effectively addressed some difficult pastoral matters which ministers often struggle with before eventually putting into the ‘too hard basket’.

I know of no more effective way than EH prayer ministry to ‘set the captives free’ to praise and worship God, and to serve as disciples.

Since that time we have conducted numerous schools and it has been wonderful to see some people from the various churches attend and then lead subsequent schools and join the Executive.

I encourage ministers and pastors to either undergo the training themselves, or to send representatives with responsibility for pastoral care in their churches. – David Hollingsworth
