How does it work?

We believe that by asking the Lord to heal the spiritual causes of present day mental health illness, the client can experience healing and freedom. This process is not a formula; it’s different for every individual. It can involve investigating generational trauma, familial patterns of sin or hurt, childhood wounds, or present day issues.

What is the process?
  • A client shares whatever they choose with the practitioner about their emotional, behavioral, physical and mental health state. The Practitioner assesses the client. Together, the client and practitioner decide the best mental health treatment plan for the client: Biblical Prayer Ministry, medical mental health treatment, or both in combination.
  • We can meet a variety of client needs. For instance, we have some clients who are only interested in receiving Biblical Prayer Ministry without medical services. We also serve clients who only want psychiatric services from us. We have some who are managed medically by an outside psychiatrist or counselor, but come to us for Biblical Prayer Ministry to augment their treatment plan. Finally, we re-assess each client every session, so the treatment plan can be altered at any time to meet a client's needs.
What are the benefits of combining Biblical Prayer Ministry with medical mental health treatment?

When needed, psychotropic medicine is an excellent tool to support a patient during this process. Especially when unpacking trauma, emotions that have been suppressed can be brought to the surface and intensify. Appropriate medical interventions can facilitate a more gracious process for the client. By offering both medical and prayer services, we can provide holistic care for a client in one location.

Who do you treat?
  • Children*
  • Adolescents*
  • Adults

All clients must be in active care with a primary care provider
*Parents and guardians please note: we will not see your child without their consent, regardless of the child’s age; however, feel free to book an appointment for yourself. Sometimes a child observing their parents going through the healing process with the Lord can spark curiosity and willingness within the child.

Do I have to be a Christian to be seen here?

No. We will treat any client regardless of religious affiliation. However, clients seeking Biblical Prayer Ministry should know that our provider prays in the name of Jesus Christ during prayer time.

What does it cost?

One hour client intake and Biblical Prayer Ministry sessions are $150 each. For clients seeking psychiatric services, 30 minute med check appointments are $50 each. Clients can pay with a Health Savings Account. As a charitable organization, we have financial assistance available for those in need, please inquire with our office staff for details.

Do you accept insurance?

We accept Medicaid. Clients can also pay with a Health Savings Account. Those with commercial insurance can submit receipts to their insurer to see if they can get full or partial reimbursement. Renewing RVA is not responsible if the insurer refuses to reimburse the client.

One Day

One Day

Renewing RVA is the fiscal agent for the annual event One Day: One Step Toward Racial Healing for Richmond. One Day is a multi-church collaboration that seeks racial healing for our city through corporate, intercessory prayer. The event includes a Service of Repentance and Healing that leads participants through a process of Lament, Repent and Forgive. With these prayers, we have hope that One Day Richmond will be racially reconciled and healed.

Next year’s event will be held Saturday, September 7th , 2024. Please save the date and return here for more details to come.

Scripture: If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send a plague among My people, and My people [c]who are called by My name humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
