Prayer Ministry and Deliverance are presented in many different formats and formulas. Often there is a checklist of things to pray over that may have hindered or damaged the person. This is commonly done through praying a set of pre-written prayers that address everything from generational curses, a spirit of rejection, to ways a person may have participated in certain occult practices. I believe this is good in as far as it goes.
Once the initial “cleaning up” and breakthrough have occurred, how do we then partner with God through the lifetime “School of the Holy Ghost”?
Intuitive Prayer Ministry
I’ve been reading the biography of Kathryn Kuhlman by Jamie Buckingham. In early chapters he describes Kathryn’s father as one who gave her lots of affection and whatever she wanted. Her mom, on the other hand, was the disciplinarian — never saying she was proud of Kathryn nor showing her any affection. He goes on to describe how those things affected Kathryn for the rest of her life, that despite the incredible anointing in her life she so often tried to prove her worth.
Everyone knows intuitively our childhood affects us in many ways. Prayer Ministry healing is as simple as making peace with those childhood events.
My Own Example – How I Overcame PTSD
As late as my 30’s I would immediately tense up physically at the sound of a loud male voice. I would often have feelings of impending doom sweep over me. If I happened to watch a television show that suddenly had a scene of domestic violence I would feel my stomach churn and adrenaline surge through my body.
Today I am completely free. The way I became free was by making peace with the events that caused these reactions. This is one example of the many ways you can overcome emotional triggers in Prayer Ministry.
Everyone faces emotional triggers from time to time. These triggers may be feelings of rejection, fear, helplessness, etc. We pray to break these things off of us and yet they persist.
As you learn to make peace with the underlying events (root) that cause these triggers (fruit), you will find freedom. Unfortunately, we the church, so often only attack the fruit and not the root. Therefore freedom is often limited. Allowing God to reveal the root and making peace with it will bring freedom. Good fruit will then grow.
