A Handy “power tool” to pull out at a moment’s notice when there is a “hint of its need.
But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 NKJ)

“Lord Jesus, I am willing to lay down this pain. I am willing to lay it ALL down, for I see no value in keeping it, and I renounce any “right” to carry hurt or anger towards another. Lord, your word says that your yoke is easy and your burden is light (Matthew 11:30) so I must be carrying something I was not meant to carry and I SO long for peace and joy unspeakably”
“Lord Jesus, I renounce Hidden Pride, as evidenced through my worry , strife and focus on self as exhibited by ______________________
(be specific to Him, bringing to mind all that you are laying down. What is on your mind, what pain, what hurt, name it all, bring it out!)
“I take back all ground I gave the enemy though my pride and I yield that ground back to YOU LORD JESUS, for YOUR control. I release my right to it and ask forgiveness for the sin of pride.“
(form that prayer around your circumstances and learn the FORMULA. Then...keep it going as your heart is led, whether you see bitterness, anger, malice, or anything else the Lord puts on your heart. ;IMPORTANT: say the “Magic Key” prayer OUT LOUD, where the enemy lives. This is warfare and the enemy is not inside you. God knows your heart so this is not for His benefit but for YOURS in giving up the “legal ground” we give to Satan when we “come into agreement” with him as we sin! Look on our site for more about 'warfare' if you're interested in this.
“Put your heart into mine and cleanse me white as snow of my sins. Create a new heart in me Lord and take all bitterness and resentment (if there is any) from me also. I don't want to wallow in pity (ask forgiveness for this also if there! NAME IT ALL!)”
“ Holy Spirit come, bring comfort and encouragement to my weak heart and fill me with more of YOU Lord, Jesus. Strengthen me in your Love, your mercy and grace. I want YOUR JOY, Lord. I want YOUR Love lord for mine is faulty and with limits. Mold me, make me totally yours, and I will give you all the glory, Father God, and I ask all of this in the name and blood of my Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you and bless you, amen.
Yahweh, he it is who does go before you; he will be with you, he will not fail you, neither forsake you: don't be afraid, neither be dismayed. (Deuteronomy 31:8)
I learned that once issues are truly “resolved” at the throne of the Lord Jesus Christ, that once HE takes our pain and ministers healing, the issues DO NOT PEEK THEIR HEADS AGAIN. What the Lord heals He heals for good.
The pain may have several “layers” to them: layers of pain that bring memories with them or wrongful thinking; layers of the enemy’s lies in areas of your life or other belief’s that are based on old issues, but with continual yielding and surrendering your life to the Lord, He will be faithful to heal as He transforms you into His likeness.
But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord, the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
And He will not stop until He comes again!
being confident of this very thing, that he who began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:6)
Again, that doesn't mean we're not ever going to get hurt again, it's not the SAME pain to the same degree as we continue to grow turn faster to the Lord when unavoidable trials hit, or when we recognize situations that we can avoid, thus, not letting mountains become molehills (unless you women are going through ' the changes' ...and then it's open season on emotions, right! LOL!)
You will now have “tools” to use and realize what control you have over how long, how much, and to what degree that you can let something take over your life. As you receive healing for many of the “old” issues, you will learn that the new ones, although painful at times, will became easier to handle; will be resolved quicker and more readily each time.
You will come to see that the Lord will never hurt you; that He is gentle and loves you beyond what you can humanly comprehend; that he knows every hurt, every moment of your life and how you felt about it. Jesus, as the “master surgeon”; knows exactly what to touch, what to cut; in what order and to what degree, to bring complete healing and in a way that is best for me and with much mercy.
“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours”. (Mark 11:24)
Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete. (John 16:24)

You WILL receive total FREEDOM at the throne of the Lord Jesus, the only TRUE source of POWER, where much more than healing will be released. The blessings that are waiting for you at the throne are innumerable and will astonish and amaze you. It’s a NEW DAY and healing is yours for the asking.
Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:16)
I had a friend who started sharing with me during our afternoon walks over the course of a few weeks, how she started feeling as if the Lord was speaking to her about her need to stop smoking. She talked about why she smokes, how she quit before but struggled to give it up. She talked about how gross she knew it to be and how damaging it was to her health, and how she knew she should quit and actually WANTED to quit.
Each time she would go into this introspection or argument, contemplating all
the benefits of making such a decision, she would finish our walk with a toss of
her head, a big smile and say “but I'm not ready to give it up yet!” I'll share
the rest of her story in step 2 but this brings us to the very FIRST STEP that is
crucial and non-
Step 2: You have to be willing to give it up!
Whatever “IT” is, that one thing that is in the way of total freedom, You have to want freedom bad enough to give it up. You have to be willing to lay down any hindrances to the throne and strive to not pick them up again.. Remember, with Jesus there is TOTAL FREEDOM and if we're not walking in it, then we need more of power beyond our own ability to do this.
This can be a scary decision and if you feel any fear rising in your throat at the thought of being asked to give up whatever it is that is holding you back. Whether it’s pain, anguish, envy or bitterness; whether it’s a bad habit or a known sin that you continue in despite your best attempts to cease; whatever it is you know isn’t healthy in your life, you need to be willing to yield it to the throne. (you may want to read; “I Hurt and can't let go”.)
Jesus loves you so much that He will not force you to give something up, nor rip out of your hands something that you are not willing to give up; that you are holding onto so tightly or feel you have a right to keep. You need to make a conscious decision now to go wherever He directs you to go. THIS is the “letting go” part, not really ignoring issues but actually laying them down so that HE may pick them up, and He will do so and desires your freedom from any type of bondage more than you do.
Commit yourself now to say “ENOUGH”; enough pain and heartache, enough bondage and frustration. Tell yourself you've had your pity party, your cry or fit and are ready to “step out in faith” ...and the Lord will give you the strength as you do that, as you rely on Him.
“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them”. (Isaiah 42:16)
You can of course, ask strength ahead ahead of time but for the most part, “waiting until you feel like it” will never come, so you need to jump right into whatever the Lord is leading you to. Learning to live at the throne for your “daily bread” is a lesson that we will constantly work, but hopefully, as you see the Lord ministering to you, it will get easer and easier to trust the next move to Him.
My mantra is; “I trust in YOU LORD, NO MATTER WHAT” and I have to say that out loud, and often. It's like a door that you have to walk through to receive what is on the other side. You’re going to have to step out in faith, and not wait for “proof”, but it becomes easier when you know what truths you stand on. Visit our section on “Healing Promises” to learn exactly what truth’s the Lord has given on Healing, which we call “promises” as they are just that to us. Call them out Loud and know that they hold the Lord’s power for those who stand on them.
"Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
I had a friend many years ago who, whenever I poured out my frustration for the umpteenth time about an issue or situation, she would say “you can keep that if you want to”. This would make me even MORE frustrated and infuriate me; “I'm not TRYING to hang onto this!” I would shove back, “It's still there! I still have to deal with this! It did not go away and I don't know how to get rid of it, or I surely would!” I would justify.
After this conversation, I would get so angry inside, not necessarily at her but just at the thought that anyone would think that a person would actually CHOOSE to be frustrated, angry or even hurt. After all, I had been struggling with a few issues for so long; working it around in my head back and forth; trying to find the right solution to NOT feeling the way I did, and the idea that I WANTED this frustration was absolutely absurd. I thought I was ALWAYS trying to FIND A WAY OUT and that I was handling things the way one was supposed to in this “get them into counseling” type of mentality we have in the world today.
Whenever I used to get upset about something or if an old issue should surface, I would “vent” to a friend possibly, and sometimes I might have a meltdown of sorts and allow myself to cry in my room that night, but I always tried to then put it aside and move on with life, thinking I WAS “letting it go” when I did so. And if it resurfaced again, I would just “handle it” again...
ok, so ...maybe I was just doing what some would call: “stuffing it”, but isn't that what we're supposed to do? Doesn't healing come in time: the more we get it out, the more we go over it, the less consuming it will be? It seemed to me as if it would take many years for some hurts to go away.
Sometimes, It was like having a noose around my neck: the more I struggled to get free, the tighter the noose became and the more entangled in my situations I was bound. Sometimes, I didn't even know WHY I was upset but I knew this was no way to live and I wanted things resolved. (If you feel like this, “When things get wiggy” & “Quick start to healing” would be great articles to read).
In holding onto specific hurts, and even in “stuffing them” and not having them totally “resolved”, we end up building walls so that we don't' end up getting hurt again. It affects our behavior; our decisions; our attitudes; our relationships; our work and even the amount and degree of love that we are able to accept and to pour out to others. All of which can only bring more heartache.
As I started to face some of these issues and tried to yield them to the Lord, the very idea of facing what seemed underneath the pain, would cause this FEAR to well up and grab me at the throat. It seemed at times that the idea of VISITING that “dark place”, a deep pain that I suspected was caused in childhood for instance, would come on so strong that I felt as if I would actually stop breathing, and that if I proceeded any further, the pain or panic would actually kill me, or at the very least, rip all of my cells apart in a massive explosion that the world could not stand up against.
Ok, a little dramatic, but I assure you that I felt no less strongly about it. At these times times that I retreated once again, away from the issue; into the tasks of the day; I pretended that all was well, that I was doing well and that nothing was really wrong.
Sometimes, I felt I had a “RIGHT” to be hurt or angry and the very idea of resolving the cause, or me being willing to give it up, was really like giving up my “validation to be angry” and that seemed equally as impossible to face. If you fit this category, then reading this will help greatly: “I HURT and I can't let go”
Take the grace and mercy that you need to face a very difficult decision. If things like hurt and anger are not dealt with at the throne and “RESOLVED”, then they WILL come back.
Because of pain's very nature, we naturally want to protect ourselves, so “TRUST”, or lack of it, becomes another hurtle to overcome. I had a hard time even trusting the Lord with some of these deep issues because ...I mean...what if I expose those deep painful areas, allow them to come to the surface and nothing happens? (There's that FEAR showing itself again.)
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5)
Don't you be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you. Yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness. (Isaiah 41:10)
Don't let FEAR ROB YOU of all that belongs to you! These are not mere suggestions! These are PROMISES (to learn MORE of the Lord’s promises that you can stand on and claim, go to Healing Promises)
God never tells us to do anything that is outside of our ability or that He will not give us strength to do when asked!
