This is some feedback after praying through session 5 of “Prayers That Heal the Heart” yesterday morning as I prepared to head to work in New Zealand. The issue I was seeking freedom from was "striving," which is probably about the 20th issue God has brought me through since I first was taught under Mark Virkler in Kona, Hawaii January 2017 at Crossroads DTS.
I sure want to know if I am in captivity and experiencing covenant curses, rather than covenant blessings. So this quick review checklist can let me know (Deut. 28:1-68). And If I find covenant curses operating, then I will use the steps outlined in Brokenness Healed Through Words of Knowledge Training Article to help remove the covenant curses. Another prayer approach I can use if necessary would be Prayers That Heal the Heart.
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me. The LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted parts within me. He has sent me to bind up broken areas, to proclaim liberty to captive areas and freedom to parts within which are being held prisoner. Today is my day of release! (Isaiah 61:1, paraphrase)
Principles: Prayer is most effective when applied directly to the point in time at which the wound occurred and when the broken, captive part has direct encounters with Jesus.
Inner healing is one of the most powerful prayer approaches we use. It is inviting Jesus into the scene of a painful memory, looking and then seeing Him appear on the screen inside our mind. We invite Him to move freely, tune to flow and watch the flowing pictures (vision) and receive flowing thoughts (His voice).
A lady just wrote that she began teaching the Prayers That Heal the Heart course, and came under assault of demons. Her relationship with her sister fell apart. She slipped on the ice and got a concussion. She wanted help! I asked her if she had her armor on.
As we explored we discovered, she had unresolved anger and bitterness, so NO, her heart was not covered with the breastplate of LOVE. Parts of her armor were off, so she had a chink in her armor or a break in her hedge of protection, and the serpent was able to strike (Eccl. 10:8 KJV). She went to work praying through her anger and bitterness so her protective armor would be complete.
Many Christians ignore demons entirely, and have never cast out a demon. Other Christians go to the opposite extreme, attributing every pressure in their lives to satan harassing them. What is the biblical balance?
After hearing Mark Virkler teach on the flow of the Holy Spirit and the flow of demonic spirits, I discerned that I was under attack of demons of lust, sensuality and a demon of pain which was causing my headaches.
I listened as the man on the phone shared the years of stress in his relationship with his "jealous" wife. According to him, she was fearful that if he even glanced at a woman, he was going to have an affair with her. I counseled him that both of them needed to go through Prayers that Heal the Heart. He agreed, but said when he suggested it, she backed away. I recommended binding the demons within her so that she was free to make her own decision, without the influence of controlling spirits.
The following is a spiritual exercise experienced by Patty Sadallah, a CLU Instructor.
The issue that I was laying at Jesus' feet was one of what I thought was instant gratification and lack of self-control related to eating at night. But God put it into greater focus.
