Judith McNutt has dedicated her life to helping those bound by hurt, pain, and trauma to find freedom and wholeness through prayer. She is known and respected for her extraordinary gift of discernment combined with love and compassion, and for her inspired and inspiring teaching. Judith’s desire to help others led her to study psychology and earn a Master’s degree at Eastern Kentucky University. After graduation, working as a clinical psychologist in Boston area hospitals, Judith soon discovered that psychological therapy alone was inadequate to meet the needs of suffering people. Out of her deep faith, Judith began to quietly pray for her patients. She saw immediate results; they changed in remarkable ways and often were able to leave the hospital permanently. Later experience gained as director of a center of Christian prayer in Jerusalem confirmed her belief that suffering people everywhere need God’s healing touch to be made whole. She lives out that truth as co-founder along with her husband, Francis, of Christian Healing Ministries in Jacksonville, Florida.
