In Luke 4:18, Jesus declared that he was anointed by the Spirit of the Lord to proclaim healing and freedom. The same Spirit is at work today in the followers of Jesus.

Luke 4:18 Ministries provides opportunities for individuals to seek and experience healing, freedom and spiritual direction through prayer during deliverance sessions and healing rooms.

Prayer and spiritual direction

God loves people. He wants them to know that he is always close by. That’s why scripture refers to Jesus as “Immanuel,” which means “God With Us.” 

Barbara’s own home operates as a “healing room.” This is a space dedicated to prayer, friendship and guidance.

Praying together goes beyond intercession. Barbara and team that she has trained, guide participants to experience the presence of Immanuel. Guidance from the Holy Spirit makes each payer session special and unique. Come to one of our healing rooms for prayer.


Many live at the mercy of physical and spiritual torment. In Deliverance prayer, Barbara and her team help participants break free of oppression and make room for the joy of the Lord.

Vision Luke 4:18 Ministries is an accredited member of the International Society of Deliverance Ministers.
