Sometimes we know we need inner healing, and we put it off. Other times, we don’t think much about healing, but we just don’t feel right. Like physical wounds, unhealed inner wounds make us sad, impatient, or even angry.
No matter what you are facing now, take the time to ask God for healing. Even when things seem to be going well, there is always room to be healthier. And for most of us, we have plenty that needs to be restored.
The suffering we see around us, the hurt placed upon us, and the pain we cause to ourselves and others — all of this is a reality of life. The greater reality though is that we have a merciful God that loves you and wants to heal you.
So go to him. Ask him. He will never turn you away. Let the Lord bring healing, even to you deepest wounds.
Audio message and prayer from Vincent:
Lord, by such things people live;
and my spirit finds life in them too.
You restored me to health
and let me live.
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
1 Peter 2:24
PRAYER FOR DEEP HEALING
O merciful Lord,
I feel uneasy and unsettled. I’m hurt and unsure. Come to me, O Lord. Fix my brokenness.
Show me that I can fully trust in your goodness. Let me know that I can open my heart to you, as you will never hurt me and never leave me.
Let me not be afraid to let your healing Spirit work in those places where I feel inadequate or ashamed. No matter how much I hurt, no matter how deep the wound, your loving grace can heal me. I believe in this. I trust in you.
They pierced & wounded Jesus, and his blood soaked the earth. All for me. All for love.
In his wounds I hide my wounds to be safely healed.
Cleanse me, heal me — my heart, mind and spirit — in your sweet mercy my Lord.
In Jesus name I pray,
