Several years ago, our family spent concentrated time learning from Pastor Henry Wright’s ministry. He has pioneered the spiritual roots to physical disease—through which lasting healing has been released to many.
I was stunned to find a consistent thread in a wide variety of disease which our culture (medical, family, and religious) tend to accept as normative—such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
Are there some physical factors such as diet, environment and stress management? Yes.
Are there spiritual factors which can be addressed to facilitate the flow of healing that Father is committed to? Yes.
What Two Roots?
The two consistent roots in a wide variety of disease were:
Rejection, abandonment and other unresolved conflict from: 1. a father or 2. mother.
Now, please stay with me so we can get to the good part—making room for healing flow.
I Will Bring on You NONE of These. . .
Shortly after Israel left Egypt, they encountered the lack of a basic life essential—water. The bitter waters jeopardized their health, and lives, in the scorching desert heat. Father engineered the whole THREE DAY situation—with no water in the desert--as a teaching moment which He intended to imprint in the neuropaths in their organic brains.
“Listen carefully. Do what is right in My eyes. Pay attention to My commands. Keep My decrees.
Then, I will bring none of the diseases of the Egyptians on you. I AM Adonai Rapha, the Lord who heals you." Exodus 15:22-27 [my paraphrase]
He was saying I WILL MEET YOUR NEEDS and I will HEAL you. It's connected.
Studies now show that a child’s worldview and perception of self is shaped by the time they are five. In those short years (womb to age five), they are most tender and sensitive, which is key component of hearing from the Lord and entering His rest (Hebrews 4:6-11). The kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these, Matthew 19:14.
When parents are “under the gun,” backs to the wall, trying to make a living in an Egyptian-controlled economy with its degrees of fear and pain, little to no available time and energy reserves are left to meet the needs (emotional, mental, physical and spiritual) of their children in their most sensitive state. Nor do they have the state of mind to give the large amounts of mercy and grace in the learning process that little ones need.
Parents themselves feel very much like abandoned children in this setting.
In that environment, small situations snowball into large ones. This creates an environment in the three-fold personhood (spirit, soul and body) that are conducive to disease—which may even lay dormant for years as those seeds in the wounds grow to harvest.
Spirit of Elijah RESTORES FAMILIES
In our day, the spirit of Elijah is being released to cause the people to choose: WHICH God will you serve? And then, to restore the children and their parents, Malachi 4:5-6.
When the children’s sensitive hearts are overtly wounded or passively disregarded, those parts turn hard like little stones. Those block them from connecting rightly with their own personhood, with their parents and with their Heavenly Father.
Every one has some degree of these wounds, these stones, because there is only One Perfect Parent--and He is our Heavenly Father.
We cannot sustain our children in every way they need (nor could our parents do so for us), but we can clear the stones out for ourselves and for them so that we can connect with The Perfect Parent who CAN and WANTS to supply our EVERY need--which is what He communicated when He told Israel, "I will bring NONE of these Egyptian diseases on you. I will meet your needs (water, etc.), and I AM your Healer." He's the only One who can fill this level of parenting that we each need.
We can remove the blockers (stones) for ourselves and our children which prevent us from receiving from Him what He is trying to give.
This is a spiritual work. Clearing out these stones to prepare the way of the Lord, Isaiah 62:10.
Her Last Words
My grandma’s last note to me ended with these unusual words: “Redeem the time.” Only weeks later, she died, and we sorted her belongings. She loved her family, it was so evident in her possessions, but she had difficulty communicating that with them.
The Father allowed me to understand her heart, her trouble, and her message from eternity—“Don’t stop where I stopped--go farther than I’ve been—REDEEM THE TIME.” The words she could not say, He allowed me to hear in my spirit.
Message to You from Eternity
You have family who stand in the corridors of eternity and cheer you on. Some may have left extra work for you to do because of their unfinished business (Egypt is a hard taskmaster). But, they want YOU to heal and to go further than they went, as they stand on eternity side.
When we reconcile our generations, we make room for healing to flow and generational blessings to be activated.
Your family in Heaven, now fully reconciled with their Heavenly Father, release the SAME message to you: —“Don’t stop where I stopped--go farther than I’ve been—REDEEM THE TIME.”
Stone Clearing Strategy to Make Room for Healing, Generational Blessing Activation and Restoration
I welcome you to take some time, read the prayer strategy and take it to heart. Then, take the wounds honestly to your Heavenly Father, and work through the healing release and re-alignment with Him.
Father, thank You for Your redemption and mercy. Thank You that by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ I have the legal right to be a welcomed member of Your eternal family.
Please cover me and my family with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ--no warfare is allowed to cross the bloodline around each of us.
I yield these wounds and traumas from my conception through the first five years of life which I received from my parents, caregivers, and any other adult authority (name the wounds if you know them). . .to You, Lord Jesus Christ. Please wash them with Your blood, cleanse and heal them, close the wounds, and remove the traumas.
Father, please nullify any vows and judgments I made against them, myself, or anyone else that were out of alignment with Your good will for me (childhood vows, etc.). I confess and repent for the sins I released out of these wounds. Please separate me from them, destroy their effect at the Cross, wipe my record clean, and heal anyone I injured, including myself.
I choose to release, and not retain, those who sinned against me in my most sensitive state. Come, Lord Jesus Christ, cleanse and heal these wounds and remove the traumas with Your blood, close them, remove the stones, rebuild the area, and rule and reign here in this space.
Father, please separate me from any person, place, thing, or time which I aligned to which was not Your good will for me. Please take Your big sword and separate my soul and spirit, joint and marrow, and Adonai Kadesh (The Lord Who Sanctifies) me to Yourself.
Holy Spirit, please take out the trash, cleanse and heal the areas, rebuild, restore, anoint, and do much more in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Father, please deal with any demonic and helpers which used the areas of infant and childhood wounds to keep pain flowing and triggers snapping. Please release Your angels to guard and protect me, giving me time and space to heal.
Please fill all these spaces in me with Your Holy Spirit and fill in the cracks and crevices in me with Your abundant mercy and grace.
I am allowing YOU in to meet my needs and to heal me. Melt my walls with Your kindness, mercy and grace.
I honor You for your plan in my family, and honor my parents for giving me life. Please help me to release the NEW path You have put in my heart—to go beyond where my generations were blocked and to redeem the time.
Please connect me to Your Kingdom plan for myself and my family, release healing into my spirit, soul and body, and activate the release of all the generational blessings You desire me to have at the times You desire me to have them. Please connect me to the restoration of my family’s inheritance in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, my perpetual Jubilee. I release this all to You, please center me and restore my soul in You, amen.
For Your Children (& Grandchildren):
(You can stand in for both sides of the family if you are a single mother or father because: 1. You are your Heavenly Father’s child so you can ask big. 2. You have the ministry of reconciliation. 3. An unbelieving husband or wife is sanctified by the believing one—so your children are holy, 1 Cor. 7:14.)
Father, thank You so much for the children You have given me. It is an honor and a trust from You to have been given these unique children.
I confess that I have failed many times to be the parent they needed, even though I wanted to, and was trying to be. Please forgive me for the wounds I caused them—and please forgive me and my family for placing other gods before you.
In the years of their sensitivity, I wounded them and caused stones to grow in their hearts, even though that is not what I desired. Please forgive me, and remove the stones. Any words I wrongly spoke over them, I ask Your forgiveness, and call any assignment, curse or judgment that I released to them null and void and without effect at the Cross.
Whatever I passed to them that I had not resolved which was not Your divine plan for our family, please intervene and release them from it. Father, even Samuel the amazing prophet had sons who did not walk in his righteous ways, unresolved generational issues were passed on, but his grandsons turned to You whole-heartedly. THIS is what I want for my children and grandchildren. Wholeheartedly love and connection to You so they may live in the light of Your face and from the blessing of Your hand.
Father, any vow or judgment they made against me and their family, I forgive and release them. Please cover it all with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. I ask You to nullify their vows which were out of alignment with Your good will for their lives, and release mercy to them where bitterness and judgment was. Please remove the hardness in their hearts that I caused, as well as that caused by the unresolved idolatry in the family line. Wipe their record clean, Father. Give them a new beginning. Please connect their hearts back to Yours, and align their three-fold personhood, and cause their time to be redeemed. Restore and do much more for them.
Please fill all these spaces in them with Your Holy Spirit and fill in the cracks and crevices in them with Your abundant mercy and grace.
I am inviting You to come, to meet their needs, and to heal them. Melt their walls with Your mercy, grace and kindness.
I speak Your Holy Name—Adonai Rapha over my children and grandchildren. HEAL THEM, Father. Place Your Name on their hearts.
Please connect them to Your Kingdom plan, release healing into their spirit, soul and body, and activate the release of all the generational blessings You desire them to have at the times You desire. Please connect them to the restoration of our family’s inheritance in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Father, I agree with your good plans for their lives, and as their mother/father, I BLESS my son/daughter. As their Heavenly Father, please bless them, and give them grace to be who You created them to be, and who they want to be. I release this to You, Father, for Your full intervention, In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.
