Heal My Spirit
Every human being is composed of body,soul
and spirit and our spirit is the source of our wisdom, our connection
with God, our blessings and curses, and our general life orientation
and deepest character.
But our spirit can be damaged or defiled. Sin, folly, extreme trauma and spiritual attack can all cause it to be wounded or deceived.
When this happens life is painful and often becomes dysfunctional.
But the good news is that Jesus has come to heal us body, soul and spirit.
Jesus can out-bless the curses, forgive all of our sins, heal the damage from all of our traumas and give us wisdom instead of folly and 'set a right spirit within us'. The following prayer is one way to start that process happening. Just pray it two or more times a day for two weeks and you will notice changes. I have put the bible references next to each line so you can know that it is sound and biblical.
The prayer is in three parts, Confession to cleanse you and guard you, Promise to strengthen you and affirm you, and Victory to bring you through - and you should pray all three parts each time you pray the prayer. During the Confession phase you may want to confess specific sins, of yourself or your parents and ancestors, such as occult involvement, the use of drugs or the possession of idols.
