Oaks Prayer Ministry
The goal of Oaks’ Prayer Ministry is to help you find inner healing - the process of changing inner heart motives and attitudes, instead of changing outer appearances. Once the inner heart is healed through the power of Jesus Christ, the outward fruit will become visible.
Many Christians try to live the victorious, abundant life that God has for us, but instead experience frustration, disillusionment and condemnation. They struggle with fruits of the flesh as described in Romans 1:29-31, while the fruit of the spirit as described in Galatians 5:22-23, is sparse and inconsistent in their lives.
Why, after receiving the free gift of salvation, should so many fall short of experiencing joy and freedom in Christ? They fail to understand sanctification as a process, which begins at salvation. And they strive to change surface behaviors, rather than allowing the power of Jesus Christ to renew their minds and spirits.
Our outlooks, attitudes and expectations are shaped by our experiences and reactions to life in early childhood. Many Christians have tried to leave the past behind by ignoring it rather than digging deep and laying the foundation on the rock (Luke 6:48). In order to heal past hurts, guilt and unforgiveness, we need to allow the Holy Spirit to reveal the hidden areas of our hearts and to minister cleansing.
