Are You Brokenhearted?

We have all been brokenhearted at one or more times during our lives. The pain can be emotional, mental, spiritual, and even physical as a result of traumatic situations that we experience—and it can be intense! Inner healing prayer ministry in Jesus’ name can help heal and release that pain.


Inner healing is the healing of our emotional wounds, pain, and trauma. Many of them were experienced in early childhood. We all need inner healing because we have all been wounded emotionally at some time in our lives.

When this past pain or trauma is “triggered,” a person can act “out of character” or react to a situation way out of proportion for what happened. Until the pain and trauma are released, the cycle repeats itself.

Some examples of traumatic events are the death of a loved one, divorce, accidents, natural disasters, emotional abuse, verbal abuse, spiritual abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, rejection, and abandonment. These events cause our hearts to be broken.

The good news is that Jesus came to heal broken hearts!

Healing the Brokenhearted Ministry is a ministry through which Jesus heals broken hearts and strengthens relationships with Him.


The Healing the Brokenhearted Ministry (HBH) was developed by Kathi Oates and Rev. Andrew Miller.  The Lord launched HBH in New Mexico after Kathy Shelton attended their training seminar in August 2008.

Healing the Brokenhearted Ministry (HBH) is an inner healing ministry. It is not intended to replace other inner healing methods, but to be an additional tool for deeper healing.

The goal of HBH is for the ministry recipient to be healed from past pain and trauma. This is accomplished through gentle and loving prayer. Some have also received physical healing as a result of HBH ministry.

HBH ministry is done under the direction and control of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, ministry sessions vary in length generally lasting between 1½ to 2 hours. During the ministry session, Jesus reveals places where there is a need for emotional healing. He releases the pain and trauma so that the ministry recipient can be free from that burden. However, it is not necessary for the person to remember the trauma. HBH sessions are done with people by appointment only. Confidentiality is absolutely respected and honored.   

We have trained ministers from Albuquerque, Los Lunas and Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Pagosa Springs, Colorado, in the HBH prayer methods. The ministers who we trained pray according to the principles in the Christian Bible. Most of them are not licensed counselors.

We can also provide you with contact information for ministers in other states who are doing HBH if you live elsewhere. 


Kathy Shelton is available to do Healing the Brokenhearted Ministry seminars or workshops at your church, fellowship or small group meeting. Please see the Seminars/Workshops page for more specific information.
