RENEWAL is designed to offer hope and comfort to people suffering from mental health disorders or addiction disorders, and support to the people who love them. Our approach is based on respect for the dignity of the people we serve and the belief that through a faith-based program, life-changing results are possible.

RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery is an optional treatment supplement available through Brookhaven Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Brookhaven, we understand that when you are suffering from an eating disorder, a personality disorder, a behavioral health disorder or chemical dependency, life can seem utterly hopeless. It can cause Christians to feel abandoned and distant from God. However, by strengthening your spirituality, in conjunction with our professional medical services, you can experience results that you never thought were possible.

RENEWAL is based on the belief in:

God who created us and loves us (Genesis 1:26)
Jesus Christ who redeems us (Isaiah 53:5)
The Holy Spirit who guides us (Acts 1:8)

When you participate in RENEWAL, you’re part of something much bigger than yourself. Brookhaven clients receive expert care from our team of mental professionals. Treatment is solution-focused and success-oriented. Our goal is to minimize symptoms, help individuals address life problems and live fulfilling lives. Sometimes healing requires a helping hand.

RENEWAL Devotional: Lord, Teach Us to Pray

Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for Renewal at Brookhaven Hospital

Luke 11:1 – “And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray.”

One of the most successful things that Jesus did on earth, was that He prayed continuously. His disciples recognized that they needed to learn how to pray to get results.

The same holds true today.  Jesus said in John 15:5 that without Him, we can do nothing. Max Lucado said, “there are many things that we should do in addition to prayer, but there is nothing that we can effectively do without prayer.”

God answers prayers. Sometimes it’s not in the way we imagined.  Jesus said to his disciples was to pray the Lord’s prayer Mathew 6:9-11.  Jesus said prayed this as a model prayer for us.  The following is a break down of the Lord’s Prayer and what it means.

“Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. [He is Holy and should be revered] Your kingdom come, Your]will be done On earth as it is in heaven. [A plea for God’s Kingdom to be inaugurated on earth and desires by the believer]  Give us this day our]daily bread. [Life Essentials] And forgive us our]debts [sins, moral failures], as we have forgiven our debtors [letting go of both the wrong and the resentment]. And do not lead us into temptation,[lead us away from situations where we are vulnerable and have the opportunity to sin] but deliver us from]evil [God does not tempt man James 1:13, but does allow him to be tested of his faith, and will give us an opportunity of away of escape if we are tempted by evil] For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” [give him praise for your answered prayers through the praise of thanksgiving so God can be glorified.]

Prayer is one of the main ways of abiding in Him (John 15:7).

Therefore, our request should be like these disciples, “Lord, teach us to pray.”
