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

Healing Prayer: Depression

My Father in heaven. Precious Holy Spirit within, to you belongs all the honor and glory and praise.

I am immersed from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet in your love. You are omnipresent: Your love for me is visible everywhere I look. I can’t escape your love. I can’t see past your love. I can’t look beneath or over it. I feel your embrace in my spirit.

In my spirit man, I will forever praise my God and Savior – yet part of me is downcast and disturbed. I will align my mind and my body and my soul with my spirit. I will trust in your word. Your word is truth. Your word is life. Your words comfort and build me up.

Your word says that I am beloved. I am your child. I am your righteousness. I am holy, a saint, a priest, and a minister in your kingdom.

Your words assure me that you care for my every need. I am not anxious over food, or clothing, or shelter – these things you provide. You desire that I live a full abundant life. That I enjoy this life in the flesh which is a blessing here and now. You desire that I prosper and be in health.

I can lay all my worries and troubles at your feet in prayer because I know you care for me. You answer all my prayers because I ask according to your will and in faith.

You O Lord, are a shield of protection for me. You are my glory. Your lift my head up out of despair. I cry out to you and you hear me. I lay down to rest and you give me sweet sleep. I wake up refreshed and expecting because you sustain me.

There are many troubles, problems, difficulties, annoyances, calamities about me. Others may think it is hopeless, but I do not. Others may want to give up. But I will not. Others will doubt your presence but I will praise your name.
I am not afraid though evil appears to strike from every corner. I am a citizen  Your kingdom. You are the only God and the only Power. And I am your precious one.

If I am troubled, I know my afflictions are only the pathway to an even greater  and eternal glory. I don’t faint nor give up because inwardly, I am being renewed.  I don’t look on circumstances and that which can be seen, but on things eternal.

My hope in you Lord is my anchor and my foundation. My eyes are opened. I know the hope of your calling. I bask and I revel and I give thanks for the glory and the riches that are mine as an inheritance of the saints.

To You belong all the glory and honor and praise.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
