Trauma Aid
Back Home Up Next

Pray thus:

"Lord Jesus, I realize that the sickness and evil I encounter is more than my humanity can bear. So cleanse me of any sadness, negativity or despair that I may have picked up. If listening to others has tempted me to anger, impatience or lust, cleanse me of those temptations and replace them with love, joy and peace.

Oh God of Love, speak Love into my memories of abandonment, abuse, betrayal, loss, rejection, bullying, ridicule, belittling, shaming, blaming and abuse. Speak love into the traumas I saw or heard others experience. Let these memories surface and place your flag of Peace over them. (Pause to let the memories surface.)

Come Holy Spirit, renew me, fill me anew with your power, your life and your joy. Strengthen me where I have felt weak and clothe me with your light. Fill me with life. Please rewire my brain to be in harmony with the fruit of Your Holy Spirit.

If any evil spirits have attached themselves to me or oppress me in any way, I command these spirits to depart - now - and go straight to Jesus Christ, for Him to deal with as He will.  In the name of the True Jesus I command the spirits of insecurities, reactions, discouragement, bitterness, rebellion, revenge, inferiority, shaming, escapism and defensiveness in our hearts to leave now.

Please remind me to forgive my persecutors, my family and myself. Please remind me to apologize to others I have hurt. Please lead me to confess and renounce all my present & prior sins & iniquities.

And Lord Jesus, please send your holy angels to minister to me and my family -- and to guard us and protect us from all sickness, harm and accidents.

Thank you for loving us. We wish to live with You in peace and love forever. Please replace Satan's world views, identities, attitudes, delusions, wisdom and suggestions in our lives with Your Truth.
We praise You now and forever, Father, Son and Holy Spirit!
Amen

Be prepared; periods of grief will come. This is how the trauma should have been dealt with to begin with, to bring it to peace. Don't block it.

As a follow-up,  James 5:16 says, "Therefore confess you sins to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. ..." The fact that THIS sin being healed and not forgiven indicates this is not a transgression but an 'amartian' flaw (Heb. 12:1). You missed the mark due to strong emotions overwhelming you.  Theoretically, as we confess a time we suffered a loss, a shock, betrayal, trauma, beating, etc., we can pray a portion of this trauma-aid that is relevant.  We can pray for our brain to be rewired in the direction of the fruit of the Spirit.

Give positive reinforcement and a sense of safety to grieving. (You might not be able to do that since you are vested in his life and are not perfect yourself.) Likely you would be 'tested' to see if you can be the love of Christ.

For reenactments and addictions, we say, "I could do that ... but I refuse, so help me, God." That pulls it up out of the subconscious and the conscious mind finishes it.
