We’ve all been hurt. Nobody lives a pain free life. But sometimes we try to ignore or bury the pain. Sooner or later though, you’ll have to deal with it. Or, you can let God.
Inner healing takes time. Don’t hurry the process, but don’t hold it back too long either. There’s no magic formula, and your heart may give you clues about when it’s time. Or maybe a strong experience brings deep wounds to the surface.
Sometimes the hurt comes from suppressed memories or experiences that were linked to your life. They can be direct or indirect, but either way, they hurt you.
When the time comes, find a quiet place. Sit for a moment in silence. Then let it all out. Cry out to the Lord and express all past and present pain. Expose your wounds to the light of God… and he will heal you. Jesus Christ is the Great Physician. His wounds and his blood provide the deep spiritual healing your soul desires.
A message and prayer from Vincent:
Has this site blessed you? Learn about our patron program.
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed;
save me, and I shall be saved;
for thou art my praise.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”
PRAYER FOR INNER HEALING
Oh heavenly Lord,
I’ve been hurt, seen hurt. Wounds and pain all around, can you heal it all? Is it possible?
Free me, oh Lord, of my fear and resistance. Help me to give myself into your gentle hands. Bring down the walls that separate my heart from your loving Spirit.
Let my trust in you grow. May I surrender it all to you as you alone restore my soul.
Christ shows me the way.
Heal me, cleanse me with the blood of the Lamb who frees me from sin and shame.
I am your beloved child. So here, now, I ask you, oh loving Lord, heal me of my deep wound and set me free again.
In the name of Jesus,
