Father, in the matchless, mighty, holy name of Jesus we seek your face, your kingdom, and your righteousness! Father, you said in (Hebrews 11:6) that any man that comes to God must believe that He is God and He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Father, we thank you for instructing us to cast all of our cares upon you, for it is that you care for us (1Peter 5:7). Father, we have the confidence, and assurance that when we come together, two or more, touching and agreeing on anything that you are in the midst of us (Matt 18:19).
Father, we thank you that your arms are not too short to save, neither are your ears to heavy that you cannot hear. (Isaiah 59:1). Father, we thank you for the spirit to pray for your people. We totally understand that there is no good thing within ourselves, however your word states that the Sons, and daughters of God shall be led by the spirit. (Romans 8:14). Father, Psalms 107:20 informs us that, “You sent your word, and brought healing to the people.” Father, we thank you for the shed blood of your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. For He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, and the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).
We seek supernatural healing on the behalf of those individuals that suffer from mental illness. Many, even our loved ones, suffer from schizophrenia, bipolar, anxiety, mood disorders, hallucinations, hearing voices, and delusions. We pray for them and those who suffer from illness in their emotions, eating disorders, attitudes, and behaviors, impulsive control, and those that suffer from pyromania (starting fires), kleptomania (stealing), compulsive gambling, personality disorders, antisocial personality disorder, obsessive compulsive personality disorder, and adjustment disorders; dissociative disorders: people that suffer severe disturbances or changes in memory, consciousness, identity, split personality and psychosomatic disorders.
Father, we ask that you speak into the mind of these individuals “You shall live and not die and declare the works of the Lord” (Ps 118:17). We decree and declare that every demonic force, every thought will line up to the obedience to God. (2Cor10:2-6) Father, every mental demonic giant, wicked imagination, and everything that attempts to exalt itself against the knowledge of God must bow down to your word (Philippians 2:10). Father, your word shall take into captivity everything that is not like you.
Father, transform their minds to think upon things that are true, honest, pure, lovely, just, noble, praiseworthy and holy (Philippians 4:8). Your word, Father states that “if you be for us, you are more than those against us (Romans 8:31). Father, so we thank you for the peace that passes all understanding, (Philippians 4:7) upon all that shall keep their minds stayed on you. (Isaiah 26:3) We thank you now in the name of Jesus for uprooting and tearing down every false perception, every lie, every dysfunctional attitude, action and behavior, and bringing about liberation in the minds of your people.
In Jesus name: thank you for setting the captives free; “Who the Son sets free is free indeed” (John8:36)! Amen!
