Flat Earth Prayer

flat earth prayer

You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you. (Nehemiah 9:6)

Lord God Almighty,

How marvelous it is that you have stretched out the heavens like a tent, and you look down upon the earth from your holy dwelling place. You separated the water above from the water below the earth, and you made a beautiful “sky”. You called the dry ground “land”, and the gathered waters you called “seas”.

The design of your firmament is a wonderful creation, as you have spread out the vault of the sky and the floor of the earth. Your heavens declare your own glory, and your skies proclaim the work of your hands. We worship you, Lord, in the splendor of your holiness. We, and all the earth, will tremble before you!

You made two great lights – the greater light (the sun) to govern the day and the lesser light (the moon) to govern the night, and you also made the stars. You sit enthroned above the circle of the earth, and you rule and reign according to your own power and authority. There is none like you, and none before you.

The foundations of the earth belong to you, and upon them you have set the world in place. You hold its pillars firm, and it cannot be moved. You alone were present when you laid the earth’s foundation, marked off its dimensions, and stretched a measuring line across it. You know the earth, and you know it full well.

We give you praise, for even those in the underworld will acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord. Every creature in heaven, on the earth, and under the earth will acknowledge the Lamb of God saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” (Revelation 5:13) . Amen.

Dissociation Prayer

dissociation prayer

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18)

Heavenly Father,

I pray for those who are dealing with dissociation. For those who have been physically, sexually, or spiritually abused may you come to bring healing. May you set the groundwork in place by the power and authority of Jesus of Nazareth to bring healing to the very core of their being and every part disconnected from their soul.

May you bring each part of the person into an environment of healing. Give them the space, time, and energy they need to be brought into wholeness. Call each one by name and design a safe and protective place where they can learn to live, move, and find their being in Jesus. I ask for the Holy Spirit oversee this entire process.

Bring each person into a supportive community. Help them to move beyond the patterns of abuse, so that they can learn healthier ways of being. Show them people they can trust, and who are safe to be around. Let these people be kind, caring and patient individuals who love you, and who want the best for the brokenhearted.

May those who are dissociated flourish in life-giving environments. Bring them into close relationship with you, so that they can know you, and enjoy your presence forever. Teach them your ways, and bring them your everlasting peace. Remind them they are truly loved, and help them to share your love with others.

Amen.

Relieving Chronic Pain

chronic pain

Lord Jesus,

I pray for those who are dealing with chronic pain. Send your holy presence to minister into the area of their pain receptors. Remove the negative turmoil, decrease the pain intensity, and increase the joy of the Lord. May they know your presence, experience your favor, and may you rejoice over them with singing.

At these specific sites, let your healing begin, and be brought to full completion. Remove the shock of any trauma, balance their internal systems, and minister to every part in pain. Reduce any inflammation, increase circulation, and bring them into full restoration.

Let their mind, body, and spirit be one with you. I ask for the Holy Spirit to oversee this work, and work in alignment with their spirit for the healing of their entire body. In all dimensions, bring the freedom of Jesus to them, for He whom the Son sets free is free indeed, and Jesus has come to set them free.

Lord Jesus, for those who fear your name, let the Sun of Righteousness rise with healing in his wings, so that they will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture (Malachi 4:2). Bring your kindness to remove any ungodly words spoken over them, and let your authority establish safe and secure boundaries.

May your love flow into the core of their being to soothe every source of discomfort. Free their mind, body, soul and spirit to think upon that which is good, beautiful, and lovely. Set their heart at ease, and remove every form of trouble that interrupts their healing. Refresh them with you rest, and let your presence free them from all pain.

Amen. 

Trauma Prayer

trauma prayer

Lord Jesus,

I pray for those who are experiencing trauma. May you provide them with your shelter. Give them a safe place to run to, and hide if necessary, to find comfort in the midst of any storm. When their emotions feel overwhelmed, and they don’t know what to do with their pain, may you comfort them in the midst of their sorrow.

The name of the LORD is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. (Proverbs 18:10)

May your presence soothe their aching soul. Send compassionate people into their lives at their discretion. Help them to process their thoughts. Begin to remove any forms of shame or condemnation from their lives. Let them speak with you about their pain, and hear from you, as well. For you can speak healing into their wounds.

If they are weary, give them rest. In their weakness be their strength. During any times of turmoil be the center of their lives. Speak kindly to them, and let them delight in your joy. Be their peace and cast off any fear. Help them to live, and move and find their being in you. For you are the answer to their prayers.

Jesus of Nazareth is the great Shepherd. May the familiar words of Psalm 23:1-4 remove any distraction, quiet you in any distress, calm any of your fears, and bring resounding peace to your soul:

 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort
