Healing Hearts Ministries

In the video below, Healing Hearts Directors discuss why women struggle to talk about a past abortion. Each of our directors has an abortion experience in their past and found hope and healing in Jesus Christ. If you are hurting after an abortion, we can help. Connect with us at healinghearts.org.

Many Praises and Ways to Pray!
  • We are praising God for the publication of our new Leader’s Guides! Even our seasoned leaders are telling us how helpful they are in facilitating counseling and discipleship on tough topics such as trauma and loss.
  • Please pray for the publication of our new men’s study as well as the possibility of publishing a mini-book for those who have had an abortion and are seeking help.
  • Our GFC missionaries, Doug and Diane Markesbery, have been instrumental in getting our post-abortion Bible study translated into Romanian and published. Romania has one of the highest abortion rates in the world! On average a woman will have had 8-12 abortions in her lifetime in Romania. This has left many women and men in this country devastated and hurting. Pray for God to raise up some national leaders who are passionate about seeing God bind up the brokenhearted in Romania.
  • Also, please pray for our youth materials to be translated into Spanish. This is a project that is currently being worked on overseas.
Ministering to people who are greatly suffering, often due to trauma, weighs heavy on the counselor. While we sorrow with our counselees, we look forward to the time of rejoicing and celebrating all God has done. Please join us in praying Psalm 126:5-6:
Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy.
They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.

If you have an abortion in your past, please reach out to us. We would love to come alongside you to help you find healing in Christ. We also need your help in reaching those who are still suffering in silence in our church. If you are not post-abortive, we pray that you would be sensitive and gentle in your conversations on this topic whether through social media, small group meetings, or hallway conversations. You may not realize those hearing your comments may have an abortion in their past and are overwhelmed with fear and shame. Pray that our GFC family will have a grace-filled stance on this issue while lovingly holding to the truth.

Healing Hearts is a Gospel-centered, grace-driven ministry that offers hope and healing in Jesus Christ through God’s Word to people who have been broken by sin. Healing hearts, healing families. . . one heart at a time. Their vision is to equip lay leaders in every church using the Gospel of Jesus Christ to bring hope and healing to those who are hurting by walking them through God’s Word.
