About Lion's Light International

Our Mission

Lions Light International exists to extend prayer and a global voice of encouragement, exhortation, and edification through instilling help, hope, healing and the Heart of Jesus.

Our purpose is to help people walk in freedom the way the Lord has created them to!  We want to show others the love of Christ by walking them through forgiveness and partnering with them to break the strongholds over their lives.  Jesus set the captives free! [Luke 4:18 NKJV]  Our goal is to empower people to break free of their oppression, walk in faith, and strengthen their walk with the Lord.  Ministry in inner healing and deliverance allows the Lord to move through you freely and re-center your focus on Him!  Lion’s Light International (LLI) has prayed and worked with people all over the world and continues to breakdown barriers in people’s lives daily!  Our team consists of people from all walks of life who have gone through the ministry themselves.  We ensure that our prayer and pastoral counseling sessions are 100% private and confidential. Lion's Light International is a 501c3 non-profit organization that runs solely based off of donations.
