Lord and Father, hallowed be Your Name. We honour You and ask You to help us resist dishonour of You. We acknowledge You as the One who directs appointed time; we declare that Jesus is indeed our inheritance. We confess that the calling He has given us to steward is fulfilled in Him and through Him.

But, heavenly Father, a big BUT… Your children can’t access the fullness of our calling. Father of Light and Love and Lord of Angel Armies, we need Your help. We are pinned down by trauma, fixed fast to a moment in the past that we cannot escape. We have forgiven and repented but we’re still staked, still drained through seeping wounds.

So, Yeshua HaMashiach, Lord Jesus of Nazareth, I approach You and take hold of the hem of Your garment on behalf of the reader who, having done all the legal preparations of forgiveness and repentance Your Spirit has required, now looks to Your grace.

Please place Your hand on the transfixing spears, daggers, knives, nails, swords, lances, harpoons or arrows. Please flood the wound with Living Water to wash away all spiritual poison, and please sing away any barbs, disintegrating them by the power of Your Voice. Flood the wound once again with Your Living Water. Please ready the anointing oil so Your Holy Spirit can seal and heal the wound as soon as the weapon is removed.

Now, Jesus, I ask You to pull out the shafts of the weapons—gently so that no further harm is done. I ask the Holy Spirit to pour balm on the wound, sealing and healing. And then I ask that His tongues of fire is directed to the weapons—to burn them to ash or melt and reshape them into instruments of peace.

Lord, please help the reader to stand and then to walk. They’ve been stuck for so long, they’re stiff and awkward, so take them by the hand and help them regain suppleness of movement. Renew their hope and expectation, rebuild their strength, direct their vitality into the channels that will bring them swiftly into their inheritance and cause them to be a blessing to countless people as they mount up on wings like eagles and feel the lifting power of the wind of Your Spirit as You take them into the destiny that You’ve always intended for them.

Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Jude 1:24–25 KJV
