The Diocese of New Ulm has a prayer team specifically trained to help you find healing in those areas of your life where you have been wounded and lead you to experience spiritual freedom using the “Unbound” model of prayer.

Unbound Ministry in the Diocese of New Ulm is dedicated to the prayer model which has enabled many people to experience spiritual freedom and the abundant life promised by Jesus. In his book, “Unbound, Freedom in Christ,” Neal Lozano explains the importance of the 5-keys that are the foundation of the Unbound Ministry. The five keys are: Faith and Repentance, Forgiveness, Renunciation, Authority, and the Father’s Blessing. The person is led through these five keys with the help of a prayer team trained in their application. Following the keys gently guides a person to a greater depth of freedom in Christ. The keys offer an opportunity to cooperate with the Holy Spirit, in a gentle and non-confrontational way, to heal past hurts and traumas and lead one deeper into the freedom given to us by Christ at our Baptism.

The Unbound ministry prayer team offers a compassionate, non-judgmental environment for healing and respects participants’ confidentiality.

TESTIMONIALS – The following testimonials are shared with permission from the individuals who have experienced Unbound deliverance prayer in the Diocese of New Ulm.

“The freedom I have experienced with the UNBOUND prayer has been unbelievable. My past has included physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Even though I am a faithful Catholic the deep hurts have stayed with me throughout my life. I have struggled my whole life with feelings of worthlessness and not being worthy of God’s love. After reading the UNBOUND book, I knew I needed prayer. I was scared but the prayer team was very understanding. After going through the 5 keys, I now recognize the lies that I believed about myself. I was able to renounce the lies and the areas of spiritual darkness in my heart. I was finally able to forgive those who had hurt me. I feel like a tremendous burden has been lifted and I feel such peace and joy. My family sees a dramatic difference in me too. I know that God loves me and I trust that he is looking out for me.. I am so thankful this ministry and the compassion and love that the prayer team showed me.”  

“This is a ministry that each person should encounter at least once in their lifetime. I’m 47 years old and have been dealing with unforgiveness, anger, resentment and isolation. Satan had filled me with so many lies over the years that it became difficult to see any truth. With this ministry the Lord made it possible for me to recognize and renounce these lies one by one. There were many hurts that I had not visited because of fear. Once they were addressed I immediately felt an outpouring of Gods grace to fill these voids. It didn’t end there. I was given the tools to recognize the returning lies, and with the power of our Lord, the ability to renounce them as they came. In Jesus name all things are possible.” 

"Going through the UNBOUND prayer was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone. It was an experience that renewed my faith and gave me spiritual strength. The prayer team helped me identify areas in my life that were a burden on my soul. After I prayed to renounce those things they prayed a prayer for deliverance. The whole experience gave me much peace.  It's amazing how much energy I have after going through this prayer! I feel I have more energy for the things that I love"
