Healing Prayer: Cancer

Abba, Father

To you belong all the power and all the glory. There is no God but you.
My Yesha.  God who saves. My salvation.  Yshw’ah. Yahweh is Salvation.

You are my Father and Lord, My Protector and my Guide. You are the Good shepherd who attends to me, a the speckled and spotted lamb that you loved, delivered and placed in your flock. I have no lack. I am safe from all enemies.

You direct my path. I am not worried about my destination: You will never mislead me or misguide me. Where ever you take me I am willing to follow. For I know I will find there love, peace, and consolation.

If I come to you with my soul  heavy with the cares of this world, you will lighten my load. If I am weary of crying, you will wipe away every tear. If I am weakened and distraught from sickness and disease, you will lift up my head and speak to my spirit hope and deliverance

In Spirit, I am healed from all afflictions. I am a holy, pure, spotless soul redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb.

In my darkest moments you are there. When  men can offer me no hope, you are my hope and my refuge. I can not fear any evil because I am not alone. The Omnipotent one is by my side. I am not afraid of the terrors in the daytime nor the pestilence lurking in the darkness. There is no demon, no disease, no disaster you cannot deliver me from.

In the midst of my trial your Spirit flows over my like anointing oil. You are training me for battle. You are preparing me to war against every power, every principality, every thought, every imagination which would dare exalt its self against the knowledge of God. My thoughts imprison and make them obedient under the Anointed One, Christ.

I know you have wonderful plans for my life. I have a future and a hope. There is much for me to do and to be here on this earth. I long to be with you, Lord, but it is needful that I remain and be a blessing to the body and to those who you have purposed I minister to.  My best days are now and tomorrow.

In Jesus’ name, Amen

Healing Prayer: Church Hurt

Abba, Father

To you belong all the power and all the glory. There is no God but you. You are everything to me. Master, Saviour, Redeemer, Healer, Comforter, Teacher, Friend, Father, and Protector.

I come before you with a heavy heart. Emotions well up inside me and I am afraid they may boil over into words and actions I do not intend. I place these at your feet. I place them at your feet knowing that you care for me and that You are touched by my wounds and my tears. In Jesus, you experienced hurt from those you loved. You know how it feels to be rejected by your own. Through Jesus, you  share in my sufferings.

Through Christ, you have borne my griefs and sorrows. Through your Spirit, you guide and instruct me. Through our word you console me. You have promised to fight my battles and I turn command over to you as Commander-In-Chief. You alone see beyond the visible. You know the fate of those who war against me.

In Christ, I am a new creature. The old way of living is gone. I no longer look to others for approval, status, or meaning, but I accept that I am who you say I am:  Beloved, a son or daughter, a priest, your righteousness, your heir, a citizen of your kingdom, the apple of your eye.

I accept who I am. A child of the God who is pure, unadulterated love. I will manifest this kind of  love everywhere, anytime, to everyone, and in every situation. I will never return evil for evil for I am one who blesses rather than condemns.  I will not return curses for reviling, but I will pray for everyone. I will fight the impulse to retaliate when I am  stricken and wounded.  Instead, I will nurse the wounds of others – especially those in the family of God.

This is hard for me. I can not do it on my own. I await a quickening from your Holy Spirit. I await your power from on high to fill me and strengthen me to resist the temptations of Satan. I even have power over my tongue. That small but powerful lump of flesh which can destroy or build up,  agitate or comfort, wound or heal.

I am aware of the deceitful ways of Satan. I have only to resist him and he will flee. He is defeated. Christ crushed his head. Like Jesus, he has nothing over me. Let him slither away to wait for that opportune time which I know will never come.

I have three weapons against which Satan is powerless. I can have compassion upon those who mistreat me. I forgive those who have wounded me, and I pray for those who curse and use me.

Abba Father, if there is anything within me which is holding me back from walking in the Spirit fully, reveal it to me. Purge me. Wash me with hyssop. Not for my sins – praise you, they were dealt with on the cross – but renew in me a right mind and spirit. Let no bitter root take hold in me.

I will guard my heart. I will not let the self  the flesh rule over me. Anger will not rule. Shame will not rule. Hurt will not rule, Disappointment with mere men will not move me. But I will manifest the fruit of the spirit:
Love,  joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and  self-control.

I will be: patient, kind,  not envious. not a braggart,  not puffed up or self absorbed; not rude, not self-serving,  not easily angered nor resentful.

I will look beyond me and fight any injustice with love. I will rejoice in the truth.  I will bear, believe, hope and, endure all things.

Your Love for me is long and wide and deep and high and it never ends. I thank you. I am grateful for your mercy and kindness because you have not dealt with me as I deserve but according to your grace.

In Jesus Name, Amen
