For those who have experienced trauma and loss and to whom this world feels unsafe; join this prayer:
“God I come before you today in the name and the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. I bring to you God my sense of being unsafe.
In my life I have experienced loss and the trauma of that loss. It has been so, so difficult. My heart has broken.
But I know God that loss and trauma and ‘unsafeness’, has never been your heart or intent for my life.
And so today I come bringing all this trouble to you. I forgive you God all this trouble, (I have wondered if you have had it out for me).
I forgive all the interwoven tragedy and sin of this world by which I too have been caught by loss and trauma and a deep sense of lostness, of being unsafe.
Today, I turn to you God. I invite you to make my life a different kind of experience. I say yes and amen to a shift in my heart and spirit, a new awareness of being safe. Not because of the world per se, but because of you. May I hide myself in the folds of your garment and of your heart?
Today, I renounce ‘unsafeness’ and loss and trauma in the name and the blood (ie: life) of our Lord Jesus Christ. I say no more this day! Enough. Enough.
I reach with the strong arm of Jesus, into my past and even into my generations past, and where loss and trauma have had their day, every instance where there has been a profound sense of being unsafe, I touch these places and times with the touch of the true Lord Jesus Christ.
I declare that all these things that have been against me, that have taken advantage of me, and that have deliberately broken me down, must, MUST, submit to the healing touch of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Every moment, every loss, every trauma, every hurt and harm, I bring into the life of Jesus today. And I declare the life of Jesus, the healing and wholeness of God, over every single of these times and moments.
All of these things I uproot carefully but completely, with no ill effects, from the fabric of my life in the name and the life of my Lord Jesus Christ.
I unwind the chains of loss and trauma and unsafeness from around my being, declaring every link severed, in the name and the life of the true Lord Jesus Christ. No more!
I declare that all assignments, all curses, and all authority of darkness that has been in and over and through my life because of this loss and trauma and unsafeness must go right now to the place where the true Lord Jesus Christ would have it go. Be done! In the name of Jesus.
I enter into you God. Into your care. Your concern. Your great love for me. God, I trust you, I love you, and I know you to be good. God, be my life.
I remit from my life this day, all the sins, the evil, the tragedies, the losses, and the ‘unsafeness’ that have marked me. May I be marked by you God, instead, by your life and by your son Jesus Christ. Heal me. Restore me. Renew me.
I receive from you God all your great goodness poured in and over and through my life and days, my heart, mind, spirit and body, and to all my family and the generations past, present, and future.
I declare this work for the glory of God alone and for my own future and delight. All mucking of darkness in the midst of this, I say no, in the name of Jesus. It won’t happen.
I receive from you God, safety. May I know that I am safe in you. I enter into safety because you God, love me. Yes Jesus, be my safety and my peace and my joy this day and all the days of my life.
I hide my life in you God by the power of the one true Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for your great love and goodness. I bless you this day. Amen.”
