As a prophetic teaching gift to the Body of Christ, Melva also equips individuals and congregations in prayer and how to hear the voice of the Lord. Having overcome personal tragedy, she carries a healing anointing for bodies and the brokenhearted alike and sets captives free through the power of forgiveness.

Her recent book, The Lord’s Prayer for Young People, is impacting the next generation to know God through prayer.

  • "Since the 1980s, I’ve known Melva Lea Beacham to be a woman of prayer and have watched her press her way through adversity. During more than 30 years of work with troubled youth in detention facilities and prisons, I have often been asked, “How do I pray and get God to hear me? How do I know He will answer me?” I believe Melva’s STOP! LOOK! LISTEN! The Lord’s Prayer for Young People will positively impact and empower youth in the dynamics of relating to God through prayer. I will use this tool to equip generations to face life’s challenges and wage war in the heavenlies."

Melva Lea Beacham’s powerful presentation of Matthew 6:9-13 allows young and old alike to experience Heaven on Earth, the Father’s will, and righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost — the Kingdom of God.

  • "St. Augustine wrote, “God, You have made us for Yourself, and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in You.” There is no greater joy for children or adults than communicating with God. There is no higher responsibility for parents and grandparents than teaching children how to know and love God. Melva Lea Beacham’s landmark book is a valuable tool for helping your children know, love, and walk with their heavenly Father. Allow STOP! LOOK! LISTEN! The Lord’s Prayer for Young People to bring hope and blessing to your family."

Why Partner with Us?

At Melva Lea Ministries, we work toward the restoration of all things by strengthening both the Church (composed primarily of gentiles) and the Messianic Jewish portion of the Body.  When you partner with us, you help strengthen both portions of the Body and BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN THE TWO, thus hastening the return of the Lord.

“and that He (God the Father) may send Jesus the Messiah, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must retain until the times of the restoration of all things which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.”    Act 3:20-21

Until gentile and Jewish portions of the Body are functioning together as THE ONE NEW MAN, our mission is not complete.
