Many people, who come
to Cross Walk Life, believe that they have already worked
through their childhood hurts - until Mother's Day or
Father's Day. They
have endeavored to forgive, to stop blaming and condemning
others or themselves. Yet, on Mother's Day or Father's Day,
their buttons are pushed again and they realize that there
are still walls protecting unhealed areas in their hearts.
also feel somewhat separated from God because of the bruises
left on their personal spirit, by those hurtful experiences
in the past. The
ability of their spirit to trust was stunted. Their ability
to hold their heart open in new relationships was hampered
by the guilt, estrangement, rejection, fear of punishment or
the neglect of their old relationships. They have been
forgiven and have forgiven others, but still need the
healing touch of Jesus to actually give them a new heart, in
order to celebrate Mother's Day or Father's Day.
Cross Walk Life, we trust Jesus to restore their ability to
hold their heart open to God and others - because their
capacity to embrace love has been crippled.
Although their mind may be
willing to accept God's truth and love, their personal
spirit has unbelieving areas in it's very heart, that
quickly shrink back into a little "turtle shell" to hide or
they harden like an "armored tank," ready to attack.
of us were deeply bruised, even as babies, and went into
rejection before we could talk.
Unfortunately, many of our beliefs today, years later, are
still based on beliefs that we developed during traumatic
times in our childhood.
Ask God if you had any
of these pre-natal or childhood wounds:
If you could relate to any of
the above and can see how these bruises are still hurting in
your spirit today, Jesus has offered to take the pain out of
your experiences and replace these lies with His truth about
you. He is ready to restore your disabled heart with a new
one and to enable you to relate to your Heavenly Father and
others in wholeness. Could I (Carlotta Waldmann) pray for
Dear Heavenly Father, I ask You in the name of Jesus, to
tell ___________ that they are chosen, planned and are the
apple of your eye...... that you have dreams and purposes
for them....... that you came to redeem every hurtful
experience ..... and to make those weak places strong .....
that they are a joy and delight to you, precious in your
I ask you, Holy Spirit, to pour healing oil into all their
wounds and massage it in until they stop hurting....... to
hold them until they accept your embrace and rest in your
strong arms...... I ask you to rewrite their identity with
the truths of your unconditional love and acceptance.
Forgive them for every unforgiveness, judgment and bitter
expectation that they sowed, so that they will not have to
reap them. Help them to forgive themselves for buying into
these lies all these years. Loose them now from all the
effects of these wounds and give them new hearts and new
ground to sow new seeds into.
Dear Father, enable them to receive your heart to restore
them from all the injuries that the choices of others
caused. Give them the courage to choose to receive your
love, restoration and YOUR PLAN for their life now. May they
know the fulfillment of being your child, who is loved and
accepted, totally forgiven and fully pleasing to you. Take
their shame, guilt and fears, Lord, and give them a double
portion of your vision and blessing. Thank you, Jesus
Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the
LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the humble; he
has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty
to the captives, and to open the prison for them that are
bound;........7 For your shame you shall have a double
portion; and instead of being confused, you will rejoice in
your double portion: therefore in your land you shall
possess double and everlasting joy shall be yours.
