Healing Rooms Cardiff Latest Post

Healing Rooms Cardiff is part of Healing Rooms International, a Worldwide charity. This takes place at 7.30pm on the first Friday of each month in the CityChurch, Cardiff.

Healing Rooms Cardiff is a place where people can come and receive prayer.  A “Healing Room” is, quite simply, a place devoted to healing. The healing sought is from God, through the Holy Spirit. Healing Rooms provide a safe, caring and confidential environment where anyone can come to receive Christian prayer for all kinds of physical, mental, emotional or spiritual healing, through the Name of Jesus Christ.

Please note that we cannot provide a counselling service. We provide a safe, caring and confidential environment for people in need of physical and or emotional healing to come and have an encounter, to experience the power of prayer. Some people come and receive prayer for themselves, others come for prayer for somebody else.

You do not have to believe in God to attend. We welcome you.

*Starting from the 5th June 2015 in Healing Rooms, we are offering prophetic art in the welcome area for those coming for prayer who want it. Prophetic art is an art reading especially for you. One of our talented artists will ask the Holy Spirit for a picture for you which they will then draw and explain.

There is a waiting area where you will be greeted and shown to a seat. Relaxing music will be playing in the background. You will be offered a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits are provided on the tables. You will be given a form to fill in (help is available if needed to fill in form). Team members are on hand to answer any questions you may have at all times.

We use a first come first served policy unless there is an urgent or exceptional circumstance. You will then be greeted by a team member who will introduce themselves and take you to the prayer room. Teams usually pray in teams of two or three. After prayer you will be shown back to the waiting area, where you are welcome to stay as long as you need until we close.

The team meet up an hour earlier than the start time and bring in the presence of God through worship and praise. When people arrive, in another room team members, whom we call intercessors, are praying throughout the evening.  We have had people say they felt drawn to coming along without even knowing Healing Rooms were there.

We see people just walk in and because of the Holy Spirit presence, they might start to cry or laugh etc. People might come in thinking they want prayer for a specific thing but God might reveal something else. The team have developed a personal relationship with God and are dependent on the Holy Spirit for guidance at all times. This might all sound very strange to you if you are not a believer in Christ. Please accept our sincere apologies.

We just want to be open and honest about our belief’s which we hope will create an environment of trust within which respect is shown equally for different faiths and beliefs. Most people are aware that there is a spiritual realm, i.e something outside of themselves. You might also be aware that this realm contains good and bad. The Holy Spirit we talk about is from a true and good source.  He knows everything about you and His desire is never to harm you but to set you free of whatever ails you.

There is no charge. We are all volunteers with the desire to see people healed and made whole. Donations are accepted. If you appreciate what we do, please make a donation. Your donation will help us to make a difference to someone’s life. Thank you. Ken & Christalla Bailey.

If anyone is interested in joining Healing Rooms or starting their own, please contact us. The vision is to see more Healing Rooms set up, especially in areas where they don’t exist. When a number of 10 or more come forward, Paul and Eve from Healing Rooms International will come to Cardiff and run a two day training course.

The attendance on the course is just one stage of the procedure, an interview – more like an informal chat with Chris and Ken will take place. A letter from your pastor is required, saying they are happy for you to be involved with Healing Rooms.

You wouldn’t be thrown in the deep end, we would like you to be attending as many House Of Prayer nights as possible as this is where a lot of ongoing training takes place. We do like people to be committed, once the decision has been made to come on board. You need to love The Lord and hunger to see Him move.

Concept

The Concept of Healing Rooms is almost 200 years old. The first ones were Healing Homes, begun in Europe by John Dowie, who converted a hotel into a Healing Home. The sick would come freely to receive prayer for healing. Then a man named John G. Lake from Spokane, WA came to this healing home. His wife was suffering from tuberculosis and heart disease, and he had lost 8 of his 16 siblings. When he learned of the Healing Home he took his brother and sister to them and they were instantly healed. Before he could take his other sister to the healing rooms, she died. John G. Lake cried out and rebuked the spirit of death and that very hour his sister was raised from the dead and fully healed.

His wife was dying, when he read aloud from the Bible about how God had anointed Jesus with the Holy Spirit and with power and how He went about healing all who were sick.  He sent out many prayer requests and she too was healed. After this he worked alongside Dowie. In 1908 God sent Lake to Africa, where he helped to establish over 125 white churches and over 500 native churches. He had a lot coming against him. When returning from a missionary trip he came home to find his wife was killed and hidden so Lake could not raise her from the dead. He pursued God in spite of trouble and helped set the course for Africa and wrote the South African National Constitution. In 1914 he established his own healing rooms in Spokane, WA. Over a 5 period of time there were recorded over 100,000 healings. The U.S. Government declared Spokane the healthiest city in the world.

John G. Lake 1870-1935.

In 1999 Cal Pierce felt called by God to re-open the Healing Rooms in Spokane.  God inspired him to re-dig the wells and open healing rooms again in the same spot John G Lake did. Many people from around the world have come to visit the healing rooms in Spokane, with many healings reported.

Cal Pierce and his wife Michelle grew up in Redding, California where they were members of Bethel Assembly of God Church. Cal served at Bethel as an elder and board member. He says he was “the most bored board member the church had.” For 25 years he was stuck in a form of Christianity that denied God’s power. In June, 1996 during a service where God moved powerfully, Cal was changed by the power of God. Cal’s life has been changed ever since.

Cal, a Real Estate Developer, felt God draw he and his wife, Michelle, north to Washington State in November 1997. “We sold everything, packed up our furniture and moved to Spokane having never been there before. We were not sure exactly what God wanted us to do, so we continued to seek his direction for ministry.”

Having studied the revivals, Cal had read about John G. Lake’s ministry in Spokane. Cal visited Lake’s grave site once each month for over one year to pray.

“On February 28, 1999 I started a 40 day fast. I went to Lake’s grave site to pray when I heard God say, ‘There is a time to pray, and a time to move.’ There was no doubt that God wanted us to re-dig the generational wells of healing in Spokane.” Cal called in intercessors and began training up healing teams. On July 22, 1999 the Spokane Healing Rooms of John G. Lake were re-opened in the same location they were 80 years ago.

Since then, Healing Rooms have been set up all over the world, over 4000 representing over 74 nations, under the umbrella organisation of the International Association of Healing Rooms.

Healing Rooms Cardiff Story

Christalla Bailey was miraculously healed of M.E after a 23 year battle. God told Chris who was next for healing and so an amazing journey began.  Chris and Ken got married after her healing and started to work with the homeless. They became the prayer couple and started to see Gods heart for the homeless, the broken, the hurting. They were being trained directly by God on how to minister for healing and deliverance and witnessed many miracles.

Chris and Ken then started a House Of Prayer in North Cardiff with the strong desire to see cancer eradicated. Lots of people were coming their way with cancer. Also wanting to cover people in prayer who were stepping out to do Gods work as they noticed the attacks people came under. People came from different churches to join their House Of Prayer. They met on Fridays at 6.30pm and wouldn’t leave until the Holy Spirit had finished with them which would often be early hours of the morning. Week by week they would have answers to prayer, so this way faith levels were rising. About a year later God spoke to Chris and Ken on the same day individually, saying they were to start Healing Rooms and not keep what was happening in House Of Prayer to themselves. They were to open their doors. Neither had heard of Healing Rooms, so didn’t know what it meant. When they shared this with the team members, one of them said, a lady had already said this to her at a Bill Johnson conference earlier in the year.

Chris and Ken contacted Healing Rooms England and were told they needed at least 10 people in order for the team to come and deliver training. 42 people turned up and some had to be turned away for health and safety reasons. God very clearly told Chris when to start Healing Rooms. They didn’t feel ready but knew the importance of obedience. The date seemed familiar and Chris realised it was the date of her healing October 4th.

Healing Rooms initially started in North Cardiff and later moved to central Cardiff (CityChurch), as did the House Of Prayer. Healing Rooms Cardiff are the 4th Healing Rooms in Wales.

Many answers to prayer and healings have taken place.

Healing Rooms celebrated their second birthday this October 4th 2015!

Ken published his first book November 2014. It consists of Chris’s story and many others.

Healing Rooms went into the Natural Health Show last October 18th-19th 2014 and May 9th-10th this year 2015.

We are members of the National Association of Healing Rooms England, which is in turn part of the International Association of Healing Rooms, based in Spokane, Washington, USA.
