This poetic prayer-psalm reflects on God as a Father who requires that his children care for the vulnerable, needy and afflicted in society. As they do so, it pleases Him…He enjoys “Sitting & Watching”.
Pleasing God through obedience in His requirement to inter-relate in love results in us being blessed with heavenly blessings that includes God’s presence as well as answered prayers.
21Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them… 23Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.(John 14:21,23 NLT)
Dear Heavenly Father,
I pray for those suffering a paralysis of mind and life in general, unable to move on due to hidden childhood scars rooted in abuse and rejection which has resulted in a scarred life; attitudes and acts that continue to be damaging to them and those around them.
Father you know what each of us has been through and goes through on a daily basis. We cannot hide anything from you.
I ask that you heal us in our inner man, and deliver us from pretence and falsehood so that our true selves, who you created us to be would emerge fully to the glory of your name.
For those who are yours in Christ, we desire to be effective witnesses of your kingdom so heal us completely so that we can do the good that we know to do according to your word.
I pray that you will graciously draw to yourself, multitudes who are suffering in general and particularly in relation to their mental health, that they will find healing and comfort in your Word and the ministry of deliverance in the power of your Holy Spirit.
In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
