Dr. Karl and Charlotte Lehman (www.kclehman.com) coined the term "Immanuel Intervention" to describe what happened when their trauma counseling changed its focus from the trauma memory itself to focus on removing blockages that kept people from experiencing the relational presence of Jesus.

It has long been observed by people in prayer ministry that traumatic events share a common absence of the active presence of Jesus.

Traumas resolve when people experience the active presence of Jesus in feelings and perceptions created by incomplete processing of the traumatic events.

His Presence makes all the difference!
Martin and Sheila Elvidge work full time along with others to bring help, hope and healing to those who are hurting.

Martin and Sheila have been exposed to Immanuel Healing at THRIVE training conferences in Peoria Illinois and are incorporating Immanuel Healing into their Prayer Ministry

Immanuel isn’t just a teaching on inner healing;

it’s a pathway of practical hope whereby we can see Jesus as He is and be changed:

“Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when we see Him, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is (1 John 3:2).”.
