Our purpose is a simple one. We bring together people from many different Christian backgrounds and experiences to come in unity to pray for the sick with compassion and faith in Jesus Christ and His power to heal. Each time God touches someone and they are better or healed, we are reminded that His Word is true. Indeed He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hebrews 13:8.


The Richmond Healing Rooms is a Christ-centered ministry of people from many different Christian backgrounds and experiences. We have come together in unity to pray with compassion and faith in Jesus Christ and His power to heal.

We are a member of the International Association of Healing Rooms headquartered in Spokane, Washington – a ministry begun in 1999 by Reverend Cal Pierce.  There are more than 3000 Healing Rooms Ministries throughout the U.S. and abroad, including 12 in Kentucky. Our directors are accountable to IAHR Regional Directors Rush and Barbie Hunt out of Madisonville, KY as well as International Directors, Cal and Michelle Pierce from Spokane, WA.

A three member team of caring, trained volunteers will pray with you for your specific need.  Those praying for you are ordinary people who will be the first to tell you they have no special powers.  But they do have a heart of love and a strong faith in God.  Simply stated, they are acting as a conduit of God’s love when they pray for you.  The 20-30 minute prayer sessions are held in the privacy of one of the prayer rooms located in the Prayer Center.  All sessions are confidential.  No appointments are necessary.  Dress is casual.  No fees are charged..

If you ask anything in my name, I will do it.
— Jesus in John 14:14

History of Healing Rooms

The John G. Lake Healing Rooms originally started in 1914 when Dr. Lake began teaching on the subject of Divine Healing in a local church in Spokane, Wash.  Dr. Lake rented a group of rooms in the Rookery Building that he converted into "Lake's Healing Rooms".   He began to pray for the sick on a daily basis and many came. He had to train others to help. In the early 1900's Spokane was known as "the healthiest city in America". They were trained through a series of lectures on divine healing designed on faith and knowledge.  They were trained daily by both teaching and hands-on practical application by using God's word.  Today there are Healing Rooms around the world.

We are a ministry committed to serving the sick through the ministry of God's Healing Word, the Power of His Presence and compassionate prayer.  We believe that it is God's will for the sick to be healed and the power of Jesus is available to all who ask.  If you are looking for a healing touch from God, we invite you to come and receive.
