Elijah House is a Holy-Spirit-led prayer and teaching ministry committed to the healing transformation of individuals, families, the church and communities, through the Cross and God’s Word. It equips and empowers individuals to be healed and changed through prophetic prayer and pastoral counselling.
Elijah House was started in the USA by John and Paula Sandford who had a vision to help the Church accomplish the ‘Elijah Task’ based on Malachi 4:5-6 which calls God’s people to “restore the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers”.
The ministry is rooted in the belief that God desires to transform people and heal broken hearts, relationships, marriages, families and communities. When we engage in restoring relationships we end up restoring all things, as mandated in Matthew 17:11. We care most about what God cares about, and that is to help create the deepest level of relationships, first with Him, then with each other.
An Elijah House ministry session will last between 2 and 3 hours. Time will be spent looking specifically for the root causes that feed patterns in us that lead to broken relationships, habitual sin, and many other destructive life issues. Once bitter roots are discovered, the prayer minister leads the seeker in prayer to the foot of the Cross, to forgive those who wounded him/her, and to receive forgiveness for judgments and other strongholds the heart has formed. The ministry is pastoral in nature, based on scriptural principles and led by Holy Spirit through the use of active listening, listening prayer, the gifts of the Spirit, and other tools. God desires that His people would recognise their true Christian identity and value, and break self-defeating perceptions and beliefs. Elijah House serves to inspire and educate people, uniting them with Jesus so they may experience the transforming power of His death and resurrection.
