Our Mission

We are a non-denominational, non-profit, spirit filled body of believers joining together to take back the land the enemy has stolen from the children of God. Numbers 13:30 Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.”


Where We Began

Back in The Father’s Hands was founded in 2009. This ministry came after a radical encounter with the Father’s Heart. After this great encounter with His love, she knew with all her heart she had to share the message of His overwhelming love to the nations.

Our Vision

To see the children of God come home to the Father’s Heart and to walk in the unity of the Spirit and the Authority of Jesus Christ.  Our Moto is “One for all and all for One.”

What is Inner Healing?


     According to Isaiah 61, we are anointed to preach the good news of the gospel to the poor, heal the broken hearted, proclaim liberty to the captives, and to open the doors of the prison to those who are bound. Inner healing is the process of cleansing and healing all wounded areas of our body, soul and spirit through the blood of Jesus Christ and the dunamis power of the Holy Spirit of the Living God. 

     These areas include: Emotional pain, torment, struggles with unforgiveness, traumatic memories, overwhelming grief, anger, depression, relationship issues, setbacks, disconnections from life, and deep unexplained sorrow.

"Surely You desire truth in the inmost being: You teach me wisdom in the inner most place. Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean, and wash me, and I will be whiter than snow."

 Psalms 51: 6  

Inner Healing is a Tool for Sanctification

Processing through issues of forgiveness, repentance, and rejecting the lies we’ve believed is a very sanctifying process. As we strip away all the broken ways of thinking and the faulty foundations, a redeemed mind, healthy life patterns, and firm foundations begin to develop.

What Inner Healing Prayer Is Not

Inner healing is not a one stop shop! Inner healing is a trust walk with the Father and we are in a constant state of being sanctified. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 May God himself, the God of peace sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ? 


Inner healing is not a substitute for counseling or medical care.

Each approach has their own place and they do complement one another. While inner healing may help counseling be more effective, it should never be seen as a substitute especially when dealing with mental health issues and medications.

Inner Healing is Not a New Age Practice

In inner healing there is the use of your sanctified imagination and letting the Holy Spirit speak prophetically through pictures and visions but the crucial difference is that such visions are brought by Holy Spirit, not by the implanting of a practitioner.

5 Main Keys of the Healing Prayer

Matthew 16:16 I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

1. The Keys of Confession of Your Own Sins, Not the Sins of Others.


1 John 1:9 if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. In order to be truly free we must confess our sins and trespasses. 


2.The Keys of Forgiveness


Many people struggle to walk through forgiveness alone. Forgiveness is the 1st and most important key to opening the doors to freedom. The word of God tells us in Matthew 11:26 that if we do not forgive we cannot be forgiven. God also tells us in Matthew 16:19 that whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever we loose on earth is loosed in heaven. When we bind unforgivness in our hearts we are bound in our souls to the person who wounded or offended us, but when we loose them to the Father then and only then can He loose his forgiveness over us. This is an amazing step to freedom.


3. The Keys of Repentance

Act 3:19 tells us that “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord. Through prayer and repentance we can break away from and agreements with the enemy and destroy all faulty ways of thinking and living. 


4. The Keys of Truth

Because of the hurts and disappointments of our past we have all believed lies about God, ourselves and others that must be rejected, renounced and replaced and it is only by the Word of God that this can happen.  John 8:32 &36  And you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free, He who the Son sets free is free indeed. 


5. The Keys of David. 


Isaiah 22:22 I will place on his shoulders the key of the house of David. What he opens no one can shut: and what he shuts; no one can open. This is where we allow the Lord to shut the doors of the past with the enemy and open the doors to our future with Father God.
