Healing the Wounded Soul
Many of us carry a wounded soul. Our soul is also known as our spiritual heart. God showed me that our heart has four chambers like our physical heart which are mind, will, conscience and emotions. The heart is the area in which we trust God, and worship in spirit and truth. Deliverance and healing enable our soul to come into alignment with our born again spirit. Our human spirit belongs to God and is the breath of God. The devil and his demons cannot touch our human spirits. If we are wounded in our spirit this is healed when we receive the Holy Spirit at the time of our baptism. Woundings in our spirit are formed from our own rejection towards God, and when we perceive that God has rejected and abandoned us. God once showed me that if someone doesn’t appear to have received the Holy Spirit after praying for salvation to look for rejection against God, or the belief that God has rejected you. Repentance of rejecting God will need to be done, as well as repentance for believing God could ever reject or forsake you, and then forgiving God because you believed He rejected you.
A soul can become wounded from sin, (our own sin or those sinning against us), soul ties (invisible spiritual links between oneself and another person, object or thing in which demons pass between), divorce (when two become one and then separate, the tie that is formed between the two souls is torn, tearing the two souls in the process) and traumas (rejection, self rejection, fear etc..)
Lest they tear me like a lion, Rending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver (Psalm 7:2, NKJV).
I said, “Lord, be merciful to me; Heal my soul, for I have sinned against You" (Psalm 41:4, NKJV).
He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake (Psalm 23:3, NKJV).
Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding; He who does so destroys his own soul (Proverbs 6:32, NKJV).
And the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh (Mark 10:8, NKJV).
A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones (Proverbs 17:22, NKJV).
A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken (Proverbs 15:13, NKJV).
He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3, NKJV).
A wounded soul can cause physical infirmities. What we sometimes see in our bodies is a reflection of our soul. Many times when healing comes for the soul, the physical manifestations in the physical body are healed also. A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones (Proverbs 17:22, NKJV).
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers (3 John 2, NKJV). These woundings can happen throughout the various stages of our lives. Parts of the soul can crack and separate themselves from the main core of us. It is a coping mechanism to protect us from the pain. We then build a wall as a form of self protection around that memory and pain. This wall is false protection and is built upon using lies from the enemy. This is known as a demonic stronghold. The wounded parts of us are known as alters. These alters can form from a very young age and they are a God given help in helping the core (main) person to continue with their life. In deliverance the demons can be found behind the alters. The demons that enter into the cracks become false counterparts of us. These false demonic counterparts can be known as preconception you, in-utero you, baby you, toddler you, little girl/boy you, teenage you, adult you and senior you. A soul can also split in half to form separate identities which is what we see in MPD or schizophrenics. This is due to extremely traumatic events, and even self rejection. These can be known as multiple you, artificial you, and false you. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways (James 1:8, KJV). You will need to relinquish the wall of false protection to Jesus. The Holy Spirit may show you that you need to engage with those parts of you that are wounded and speak healing into them. He may lead you to scriptures that come against specific traumas like rejection, fear, fear of death etc..... You will need to look for un-forgiveness and any un-confessed sin and release where applicable. You will need to sever the ungodly soul tie that is attached to the place of the event, and to any people involved in the trauma. You will also need to release the demonic counterparts of you that has entered between the fragmented part of you.
One time when God was healing my fragmented soul He showed me that I had rejected myself and hated myself as a child because of rejection from others. After I had forgiven the people who had rejected me I spoke to ‘Little Girl me’ and told her I loved her over and over as I wept. The healing was huge as I finally accepted myself and spoke love into those wounds of self hatred.
The whole Ministry we teach is about Repentance, Casting out spirits and using the Word of God to heal the wounded soul and renew the mind. We believe in most cases all three things as well as receiving the love of God are required for achieving and maintaining healing and deliverance. Initially for two years we lead people through repentance prayers and prayed for healing. We found that the sessions were taking up to 4-5 hours as there was a lot of ground work to cover. Results were always good, but we wanted more. We especially wanted something that was swift and quick that would still produce great results. God asked us to have a six month break in order to re-launch the Ministry. After seeking God He showed us that we were missing the Word of God being spoken into wounds. The Word of God is food for the soul and the key to healing. We now ask clients to go through the Healing and Deliverance Prayers on our website prior to coming through. This is the first part of our Ministry. These prayers will help teach you about areas in your flesh (soul and physical body) that are vulnerable to the devil. Much healing, restoration and freedom can happen through simply using these prayers, even before you come through for a session. See: Self Deliverance Prayers.
The second part is when we operate with a team from our home and seek God for the keys to heal the fragmented/wounded soul. Our Ministry is different to many other Ministries in the sense that we don't ask the client what they want done. It is about the will of God as opposed to the will of man. It is about allowing God to pinpoint problem areas in our lives so He can restore brokenness and use you for His purpose. It is about allowing God to show us what needs dealing with rather than our self deciding what we think should be dealt with! This second part is about breaking mindsets that have formed, healing the wounds and restoring the broken pieces with the Word of God – the sword!!!!! The model we use is at the bottom of this page.
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12, NKJV).
He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions (Psalm 107:20, NKJV).
The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed” (Matthew 8:8, NKJV).
My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life (Proverbs 4:20-23, NKJV).
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it (Isaiah 55:11,NKJV).
The third part is teaching people how to use the tools God gave them. The keys to keeping your freedom is first and foremost to stay in a close relationship with God. Spend one on one time with your creator. Start each day by walking in the spirit and declaring what the word of God says about followers of Christ. Renew your mind with His word! The word not only heals and restores the soul, it changes our mindsets, it brings things to pass, it literally moves mountains. We cannot expect Kingdom abundance if we do not claim it by confession. There is a free downloadable PDF available with Scriptures and Declarations. See: Using the Sword.
The following is the Ministry we use as a team for healing the soul. We believe that you can use this method at home alongside other people, or even on your own, to achieve healing in your wounded souls. This can be done as many times as needed.
Make sure before you begin you pray for a covering of the Blood of Jesus Christ as protection over and around you, your family, home, property, health, pets and belongings. This is the prayer we use in the beginning of a session:
Pre-session Prayers *******Explain Ministry to Client
1. Protection – “We pray for the light and love of Christ to flow in this place. (Romans 8:38-39, NKJV) For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. We clothe ourselves in the full armour of God in Jesus name. We ask for a covering of the blood of Jesus Christ, and a hedge of protection over and around us, this Ministry, our families, our homes, properties, pets, belongings, health and places of work. We ask for a release of Your Heavenly angels in order to carry out Your God given mandates. We ask that You would dismantle everything that satan may be sending against us. (2 Thessalonians 3:3, NKJV) But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one”.
2. Binding/Declaration – "(Mark 3:27, NKJV) No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth we bind the strongman and all demonic spirits present from manifestations, distractions, interference, blocking and counterfeiting the Holy Spirit. We forbid you from harming, touching and transferring into us, our families, our pets and our belongings. (Luke 10:19, NKJV) ‘Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you’. Every demon that is named and commanded to go must leave immediately and all demons under the authority of, and/or in a group with the named demons are commanded to follow. With the name, blood and power of Jesus Christ we close all channels of infiltration and break all counterfeit silver cords and ungodly soul ties connected to this home and property, and every one of us. We address those who may be conspiring to influence or hinder us and declare that we forgive you and pray for Jesus Christ to bless you. By the name and power of the Lord Jesus Christ we break your power and command all watchers, demons and anything else that has been sent to watch and disrupt to leave in Jesus name”.
3. Acknowledge – “We acknowledge Jesus Christ as Headship over this Ministry and we give You Lord Jesus the control and all the glory. We submit to you and bind our minds to the mind of Christ and bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5, KJV). For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. We bind ourselves to the will of God”.
4. Manifest Presence/Gifts – “We now invite the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit. We pray that You would manifest Your power and glory throughout this session. We pray for an outpouring of Grace to flow in this session. (Hebrews 4:16, NKJV) Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. We ask for a release of Your gifts and fruit. We ask for any gift and fruit of the Holy Spirit necessary for the task set before us. We ask specifically for discerning between spirits, wisdom, seer gifting and word of knowledge. We ask for the compassion and empathy of Christ to flow from us in Jesus name”. *Open the ears and eyes of everyone present - “I speak to all eyes and ears present and declare Matthew 13:16 over them, ‘Blessed are your eyes for they see, and blessed are your ears for they hear"'.
5. Shine the Light – “Lord Jesus please bring into the light all things hidden which are hindering (client) walk with You. Please reveal any deception, counterfeit gifting’s, sins, generational inheritance, idolatry, mind-sets, traditions/cultures and religions that are contrary to the Word and ways of God. Please also show us any soul wounds, afflicting spirits and physical infirmities that need healing. We pray for life-changing physical and emotional healing as well as any God-given blessings that have been stolen to be returned in Jesus name. I ask that You would remove all residual effects and pain from the memories as things are dealt with. I pray Lord Jesus that the outcome of this session will be the will of God – In Jesus name, Amen”.
6. Worship/Praise - ****Play a song of worship then for about twenty minutes in silence listen to the Holy Spirit and each team member to write down what is discerned.
Healing the Wounded Soul Ministry Model
*This is a guideline only – the Holy Spirit may like to sometimes go outside the box!
●● Shine the Light - “Lord Jesus please bring into the light all things hidden which are hindering (client) walk with You. Please reveal any deception, counterfeit gifting’s, sins, generational inheritance, idolatry, mind-sets, traditions/cultures and religions that are contrary to the Word and ways of God. Please also show us any soul wounds, afflicting spirits and physical infirmities that need healing. We pray for life-changing physical and emotional healing as well as any God-given blessings that have been stolen to be returned in Jesus name. We ask that You would remove all residual effects and pain from the memories as things are dealt with. Please reveal all things that need to be imparted along with a God-given anointing in order to do so. We pray Lord Jesus that the outcome of this session will be the will of God – In Jesus name, Amen”.
(Take time and write down what you have discerned from the Holy Spirit)
***Scriptures/Prophetic Acts and Impartations can be done wherever appropriate***
●● Release the False Protection - (CLIENT) - "I speak to (eg: little boy/little girl you) and tell you that you are safe. I speak to the wall of protection I have created and tell you I no longer need you to protect me, as this is false protection – (Cast out demonic counterparts identified).
***** May need to deal with alters and/or split soul:
Split Soul (Self rejection)
(Client) – "Father God I repent for false fronts, self rejection, and self suppression (not allowing the rejected part to be truly me). I cast out the demonic counterpart multiple me, artificial me, double me, rejected me, suppressed me, false me (and anything else shown) in the name of Jesus Christ".
●Cover the alter with the Blood of Jesus Christ
●Address the alter by naming who it is (i.e. Little girl) and ask questions, and/or speak healing into the girl/boy following the leading of the Holy Spirit – (The alter will converse with you).
●The alter and the adult will be integrated during the session by the Holy Spirit - (Acceptance and healing between the adult and the alter may be needed. The Holy Spirit will guide and lead you if this is needed).
●● Sins & Effects – (ie: Fear, Rejection, Shock/Trauma etc..) - Release by asking client to repent of sin - (Cast out demons identified).
●● Unforgiveness - Look for any unforgiveness (may be towards others, self, ancestors or God) and get client to forgive and bless the offender.
(Cast out all demons attached to unforgiveness)
●● Soul Ties - Break all ungodly soul-ties between client and all people identified, and between client and the place of the event.
●● Pray Scriptures, Prophetic Acts and Impartations (If not already done so)
●● Cast out any High Ranking Spirits identified (ie: Jezebel, Leviathan, anti-Christ etc) and all demons under their authority
●● Jesus - Ask the Holy Spirit to show client where Jesus is in their life now
●● CROWN OF THORNS:
This represents mindsets which are formed through wounds, rejection, abuse and other circumstances that have affected the way we think, behave and act. We need to prophetically lift the crown of thorns so healing of the wounds and the renewing of the mind can take place. God wants to remove the fleshly mindsets and replace them with Kingdom mindsets. The anti-Christ spirit who is in the world puts the crown of thorns on us. This is to turn us away from God and the truth. In the Bible they placed the crown of thorns on Jesus’ head as a mocking gesture because they were too stubborn and rebellious to see the truth, that He was in fact the Christ.
(CLIENT): “Dear God in Jesus name I repent for all mindsets I have formed that are not of You. I give You permission to expose and remove these mindsets from me. I pray for the mind of Christ and the Heart of God”.
(Prophetic act) - (Remove crown of thorns from top of head and lay them at the foot of the cross - pray as you are doing it) "I remove the crown of thorns and the fleshly mindsets and lay them at foot of cross".
******* ASK CLIENT IF THEY HAVE ANY HEALING NEEDS BEFORE YOU PRAY THIS PRAYER **********
“In the name of Jesus and by the stripes He bore on His body I command healing. (Pray specifically for all ailments). I command all misalignments to come into divine order in Jesus name. I cast out the spirit of infirmity in Jesus name. I cast out fear, shock and trauma in Jesus name. I command every fibre, every cell and every part of this body to come into divine order. I command all pain to leave in Jesus name. I pray for a creative miracle in all areas where body matter needs to be regenerated. I command all cells, cell structure, DNA, RNA, and all parts of the spirit/soul and body not to remember all traumas in Jesus name. I pray for the fire of God to burn off all remaining remnants and dross in Jesus name.
(Prophetic Act and Prayer) – “I place on your head the crown of His resurrection and glory.”
●● SHINE THE LIGHT TO SEE IF SESSION IS COMPLETE
Post Deliverance Prayer: "With the blood of the lamb I seal all demonic doorways closed so that demons can only exit and not re-enter. I bind the doorkeepers and terminate their assignment against (client) in Jesus name. I ask for the Holy Spirit to infill with light all areas that were once dark in Jesus name. I pray for healing within every area of the spirit/soul and body. I pray for the armour of God to be placed as protection. I pray for the belt of truth to expose deception, the breastplate of righteousness to thwart condemnation and restore self-worth, the feet to be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace as comfort, to remove all worries and burdens, the shield of faith to trust and believe in the unseen things of God, and to quench the fiery darts of the enemy, the helmet of salvation as a seal for eternal life, and as protection for the mind, and the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God as your weapon.
(Release client) - We release (client) to You Lord Jesus into the third Heaven so You can complete the work in him/her – Amen”. *Anoint with oil
Cleansing Prayer for Team: “We thank You Jesus for Your work here today. We thank you for the protection You give us. We pray for strength to be imparted to each team member. We pray against all counter attacks and bind retaliation and revenge, accident and misadventure from any manifestation or attacks against us, and all our families. We cut all ungodly soul ties between us and the client, each other, the property, building, pets, and belongings. Any lingering demons we command you to leave this place immediately in Jesus name. We ask You to release Your angels to continue to minister to each and every one of us as needed. We ask for a fresh infilling of Your Holy Spirit. We ask for Your grace and love to continue to flow in each and every one of our lives. We give You all of the honour, the glory and the praise – Amen”.
