TRAUMA RECOVERY – Everyone has been impacted by a trauma of some sort. Childhood trauma can lead to lifelong chronic illness. Two-thirds of Americans report experiencing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE). Ongoing adversity in childhood leads to a chronic state of “fight, flight or freeze.” Researchers at Yale* had recently shown that when inflammatory stress hormones flood a child’s body and brain, they alter the genes that oversee our stress activity re-setting the stress response to “high” for life. This increased the risk of inflammation, which manifests later in cancer, heart disease, and autoimmune diseases.
The trauma prayer we use is extremely effective in transferring that trauma from our cells to the cross in exchange for the peace of Christ. Once trauma has been removed, clients are able to look at past wounds more easily and find the healing they long for.
*All of our prayer ministers have been trained in the Elijah House Schools 201 and 202 and Heart Matters. All have received many hours of personal ministry, as well as many hours serving as interns and intercessors in sessions.
