Wellsprings of Freedom International is a prayer ministry that invites Jesus into the process of helping people find healing from past emotional wounds.
All of us, at one time or another, have been wounded by another person, our own mistakes, or tragic events. Each of these wounds is an open door where spiritual strongholds of anger, bitterness, resentment, and a host of similar kinds of things can infiltrate to cause us great harm. These strongholds take root in the midst of our woundedness and cause us to react in a variety of ways. When we find ourselves having great difficulty overcoming issues in our lives that seem to control us, we might be dealing with a stronghold of evil. There are hundreds of ways the Enemy is capable of disrupting our lives; fear, anxiety, and depression are just a few. Uncontrollable rage, thoughts of suicide, sleep disorders, bitterness, and excessive feelings of guilt, shame and worthlessness are a few others. We have found that by helping a person find healing for their deep wounds, many of these crippling and disruptive issues go away. Our prayer ministry gently and lovingly guides people through a process of forgiveness and helps people find a level of healing they have never known before. Once inner-healing has occurred, our ministry teams can then simply remove the spiritual strongholds that were connected to the wounds.
Unfortunately, the biblical concept of spiritual warfare has greatly diminished in our North American culture and churches. Jesus and his disciples dealt with evil spirits regularly, and through the power of Christ, defeated them and forced them to leave the people they were tormenting. In Ephesians 6:12, the Bible makes it very clear that our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, the authorities, the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Not everything in our lives is caused by evil spirits. But on the flip side, many of the issues people struggle with are being driven by spiritual strongholds. Regrettably, many of these people never find peace, or relief from their torment.
The Wellsprings of Freedom ministry is based on gentleness, prayer, the spiritual gift of discernment, truth encounters, inner healing, forgiveness, and the authority of Christ. All are effective tools that can be used to help people find new freedom in Christ. Maybe a simple way to understand the calling and purpose of Wellsprings could be summed up in this way: Set people free and teach others how to set people free. It is our prayer that you will join us on this amazing journey, either by finding freedom for yourself, or by learning how to set other people free!
