God Just Encouraged Me – Once Again – Regarding the Joshua 1:3 Inspired Prayer Book I Wrote

Father, You are the best ever! Always encouraging me on the path I walk with you. He just fueled my faith – BIG TIME – with further confirmation and fire for my faith regarding the prayer book He led me to write:

Head to Toe Healing from Autism and Other Neuroimmune Disorders – A Book of 31 Scriptural Prayers for Your Child

I was inspired to title it with HEAD TO TOE healing based on Joshua 1:3 which says, “Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses.” And true to its title, the book contains 31 head to toe targeted prayers of petition paired with 31 prayers of authority to “tread upon” the land of your child’s body for total healing from autism and other similar neuroimmune disorders like PANDAS.

Well, silly wabbit me, I didn’t do a deep search on the root meaning of each word. Especially, the word “tread.” Just finished listening to a word of encouragement from Dutch Sheets where God just used him to blow my mind once more and bring me to tears.

The root meaning of “tread” has to do with battle. Not merely walking the land. And from Dutch Sheet’s video, I just learned that it was the Lord saying to Joshua, “Every place you are willing to go in and fight for, take your weapons, follow Me in the battle, deal with these giants, and fight, and I will give it to you. In other words, “Is God giving or are we taking?” Yes, the answer is, “Yes.” God is saying its yours. You gotta go take this. You go take it, and I’m going to empower you. I’m going to give you the strategy that will win. We will get you this land. I’m promising you. But you still have to go fight.” 

And as we know from the Word, Joshua and the children of Israel battled through 31 kings and the people under them to take the land the Lord had already given them.

Just like 1 Peter 2:24 says, “By His stripes, we were healed.” Were because we already have healing, He already carried all our infirmities, but we must receive what’s already ours by prayers of FAITH and using our authority Jesus purchased for us with His blood to speak to mountains in our children’s bodies and telling them to go in Jesus’ name. Thank You, Lord Jesus!


“A Powerful Revelation Regarding the Head to Toe Prayers in this Book

The Lord gave me a beautiful revelation which is how I came up with the section title “Retake the Land.” While I was praying for my son, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, “You need to use My authority to take back the land.” By the Spirit, I knew He meant, “The land of your son’s body.” Then He brought the following verse to my remembrance, “Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses” (Joshua 1:3). “I have given you,” the Lord said. He’d already given the land to them, referring to the Promised Land. But they had to demonstrate that they took Him for His Word by physically walking the land and defeating all their enemies in it in order to receive what was already theirs. This is a picture of what the promises of God (His will) and prayer are like. In this case, a picture of the spiritual battle praying for healing for our children can be.

Immediately, He gave me understanding that I am to use my blood-bought authority in Jesus’ name and as a daughter of the King to not only petition Him but also pray offensively for my son’s healing. To take back his body from sickness, disease, and the powers of the enemy. His still, small voice said to me, “With every prayer, you are covering your son’s body, treading upon him from head to toe with My healing Word and promises. What I have already given You, Christ’s finished work which includes healing, you will have if you pray, don’t give up, and believe to receive it by faith.”

As a child of God, you have the authority Jesus purchased to pray and speak His life-giving promises and blessings over your child and see incredible changes and answers to prayer. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit” (Proverbs 18:21). God says, “Speak the life of My Word to your child.”

The book of Joshua gives us a powerful revelation about prayer and the promises of God. Often, His promises are not automatic and don’t come easily because we are in a spiritual battle. This should give us great hope. Just because there is resistance, obstacles, and “enemies and giants in the land,” doesn’t mean the answers to our prayers are “no” when we have a promise of God to stand on. It means keep “battling in prayer,” until all the “land” is yours. Until you see the promise of healing manifest before your eyes. And praying the Word of God is the weapon He equipped us with to defeat any and all occupying enemies of your child’s body.

Be reminded that the enemy, that is the devil, battles us every step of the way to get us to give up the prayer fight, reject God’s Word for ourselves, enter into unbelief, and settle for far less than His promises. And that he can use others, even believers, to get us to doubt God. Stay fully armed with His Word to protect your heart and mind from any and all lies of the enemy that try to exalt themselves against it [2 Corinthians 10:5].

Then continue doing what Jesus says, “Pray and never give up,” (Luke 18:1). When Jesus told the disciples these words, He told the story of the persistent widow. She prayed, refused to give up, and received exactly what she asked for.

After I finished writing the thirty-one prayers for this book, the Lord rewarded me with an additional, beautiful revelation regarding, “Retake the Land.” And then a third one during the editing process. Thus, He confirmed this Word to me three times to greatly encourage you and I regarding this spiritual battle to get our children back. I won’t share the additional revelations here now because I want them to be revealed to you in the order in which He gave them to me. You’ll find them following the prayers. I am so excited for you to read them.”

P.S. I had no idea when I crafted 31 prayers with the Holy Spirit’s help that Joshua and the children of Israel also battled 31 kings and the people under them. That was His signature on this work confirming He led me every step of the way. He led me to read Joshua 12:24 as I was finishing up the book and had already finished writing the 31 prayers. How amazing in the Lord! Our Daddy God loves to reveal sweet surprises to us as we obey Him and stay on His path. I praise You, My wonderful Lord.

BOOK REVIEW: Autism Healed: One Woman’s Fight to Save Her Sons by Deborah McDermott

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony,” (Revelation 12:11). 

Testimonies are powerful fans that flame our faith. Deborah McDermott shares an incredible testimony in her book, Autism Healed: One Woman’s Fight to Save Her Sons, where not one but both of her sons are totally healed and delivered from autism spectrum disorder – with documented medical proof.

It’s so important for believers to share their victories in Christ with one another – it’s one of the things the Lord says will help us overcome (Revelations 12:11).

Both of her sons did not receive instantaneous healings. Their healings were progressive over the course of a few years. This fighting mama stood on the Word of God from a place of victory – the victory Jesus purchased for your child tooBy His stripes, we were healed (1 Peter 2:24).

Despite her sons’ symptoms going up and down at times, she refused to believe anything except the Word and promises of God.

Throughout her testimony, you see her as a regular mom with imperfections just like us. She’s not a super-Christian. No she simply believed the Lord’s report.

I appreciated how candid she was about the destruction autism brought to her family, marriage, and sanity. It’s so clear that God was not the Author of the severe disorder and chaos that autism caused. His Word says so as well, “For God is NOT the Author of DISORDER but of peace,” (1 Corinthians 14:33).

At one point, the oppression and torment autism brought to Deborah led her to a short period of drinking a glass of hard liquor daily to take the edge off an unbearable situation. I’m so glad she wasn’t embarrassed to leave out this fact because it reminds us that we don’t receive from God based on our perfections but on being made perfect IN Christ.

We receive His promises by faith through grace. Not based on works. Lest we boast in those works. No, because we receive by faith alone, we can boast in Jesus alone.

This precious mama’s struggles remind me of: “Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months,” (James 5:17). 

If you’re standing for healing for your son or daughter – don’t look at yourself – look at Jesus. He already healed your child by His stripes 2000 years ago. And you are worthy to receive from Him because your worth IN Christ is His worth. You too can receive healing by faith for your child.

Be like Abraham and our sister Deborah:

“And not being weak in faith, he (Abraham) did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform,” Romans 4:19-21).

Deborah did not accept autism spectrum disorder for her sons nor considered the fluctuation of symptoms or that autism was considered to be an incurable disorder. She did not waver at the promise of God – by Jesus’ stripes her sons were healed. But she was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God being fully convinced that what He had promised – her sons were healed – He was also able to perform.

And both her sons were healed just as the Lord promised and promises you as well.

I highly recommend reading her book. It will strengthen your faith.

You can get her book here on Amazon.

Praying for Healing from Autism for Your Child? You Report to God. NOT the Autism Community.

“You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,” (John 8:32).

Maybe you’ve noticed we live in times where pandering to the feelings of the offended has become a societal disease. Where people call good, evil. And evil, good. Where those who proclaim to be the most tolerant are actually the most intolerant. I sure have.

Through the scriptures, we see Jesus never pandered to the feelings of the offended. He loved people too much to do so. Why? Because the truth of God is what makes people free.

And the truth He shared was such an offense to some that a large crowd shouted “Crucify Him!” again and again.

“Pilate answered and said to them again, “What then do you want me to do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?” So they cried out again, “Crucify Him!” Then Pilate said to them, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they cried out all the more, “Crucify Him!” (Mark 15:12-14)

As a writer for the Lord and ambassador for Christ [2 Cor. 5:20], it’s also my job to share God’s truth and never pander to the feelings of the offended. Why? Because of the overflow of Christ’s heart in me, I too want to help make people free.

And I can’t do that worrying about people’s feelings. I’m not going to withhold the life and health of God’s healing Word because of the offense of a few.

Beloved parent in Christ, praying for Healing from Autism for Your Child? You Report to God. NOT the Autism Community.

On multiple occasions, I’ve been verbally attacked by people in the autism community for posts like this one and others like it on this blog. And it merely rolls of my well-oiled eagle feathers into the dust where it belongs.

I don’t reply to them or try to argue my point. I simply shake the dust off my feet, and say, “Forgive them Father for they know not what they do.” No one, and I mean no one is going to be used by satan to get me to deny the atoning blood of Jesus Christ for physical healing – including healing from autism spectrum DISORDER.

In many cases, those in the autism community who attack parents for wanting their kids healed and well are highly functional.

For example, I read one article where a woman with autism went to college, was married, was able to work, and had a child. In it she said, “If you know one person with autism. You know one person with autism,” in one breath, then went on to attack parents who want their “child fixed” or healed in another.

Hold on. “Didn’t you just admit that no two people with autism are alike?” I said aloud and huffed. “Yes,” I answered for her. “Then, who died and made you the boss of autism? Who gave you permission to speak for anyone else with autism? Exactly no one. Lord Jesus, help these people.”

Many with the disease of high offense also elect themselves as bosses of issues.

They often treat others as if they report to them regarding their feelings and opinions on a matter. And believe they have the right to attack you if you disagree with them.

I just don’t even care one bit.

The many precious mothers I’ve befriended have children or young adults afflicted with autism spectrum disorder that are not highly functional. Some still need diapers in their twenties. No one has a right to speak for them or their children! No one has the right to attack and shame them for wanting their child well. Some of these beautiful sisters in Christ have had to call the police on their own children who were beating them up or destroying their homes, the fathers at work unable to assist them.

Boy does my righteous anger kick in on behalf of these mothers when someone tries to rebuke them for wanting their children healed, independent, able to marry, and have their own children. Get. Behind. Me. Satan is what comes to mind.

And as a mother who is standing for her own son – “By His stripes my son was healed,” (1 Peter 2:24) is my truth because it’s God’s truth. And glory to God, my son is doing the best he’s been in 5 years. Oh the tears begin to flow now. Glory to God!

The only thing that gets to give an answer for my son? The atoning blood and stripes of Jesus Christ.

I report to the King of kings and Lord of lords, Jesus.

And my only standard of truth is what He says it is. Not feelings. Not what someone else believes.

Dear praying parent, if you’re standing on the Word of God based on the finished work of Jesus Christ always remember, you report to God. Not the autism community and surely not autism itself.

Jesus teaches us that all sickness, disease, and disorders are works of the devil.


  • Acts 10:38 – “God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”
  • Luke 13:16 – “So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?”
  • 1 John 3:8 – “He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.”

The Word of God is clear: All sickness, disease, and disorders – including autism – are works of the devil.

So, if someone wants to praise and glorify a work of the devil in their own body or child’s in ignorance, that’s their personal choice. But as children of God, we are not called to be ignorant of His Word.

Deuteronomy 30:19 says, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.”

When standing on a promise of God for healing, we too must choose.

Are we going to choose life? The truth of God’s Word. Receive the stripes of Jesus for our child’s healing by faith.

Or death? Fear of man and cowering to their mere opinions and accepting a work of the devil in our child’s body.

P.S. Healing can be progressive or can take time. This never negates His promise to heal. Don’t settle or give up before you receive the promise for your child by making declarations such as, “It must not be God’s will.” The Word says, “We must believe in order to receive.”

How can a promise of God that’s His will not be His will? It can’t. So hold on dear mama or papa, fill up with the Word, so you are not moved by what you see – symptoms going up and down – but that your faith is moved up and up by the life and truth of His Truth.

I wrote a book called, “Head to Toe Healing from Autism and Other Neuroimmune Disorders – A Book of 31 Scriptural Prayers for Your Child.” It has teachings on faith and prayers of faith for your child for healing from autism spectrum disorder and other neuroimmune disorders like it (PANDAS, etc.).

Autism Spectrum DISORDER Devours Minds, Marriages, Families, and Finances, and Turns Them Into Ruins: It is NOT a Blessing nor of God


Autism Spectrum DISORDER…

  • devours and holds captive the mind and body of a child or young adult, etc.
    • God’s will: For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind,” (2 Timothy 1:17).; “For God is not the Author of disorder but of peace,” (1 Corinthians 14:33)…and many more verse.
  • from speaking to many mothers turns to ruins their child afflicted with autism, their marriages, their families (siblings, etc.), and finances.
  • tears apart, one excruciatingly painful bite after another, every line item area of a family’s life, including the physical, mental, and emotional health most often of the mother (main caretaker).

In Deuteronomy 28, we see that all sickness falls under the curse “category” and NEVER the blessing side. We also see through the New Covenant we are under, signed in the very blood of Jesus Christ Himself and built on better promises, that healing IS a part of the atonement.

Two-thousand years ago, Jesus FINISHED the work of the Father and paid for all sin and sickness and every curse listed in Deuteronomy 28 which we must receive by faith through believing prayer until we see it come to pass.

BUT glory to God, HE is MIGHTIER and His Word is true and makes it clear that autism is not God’s will for our children and that Jesus ALREADY paid to set every captive free from all sickness, disease, prison of the mind and body, and of course our sins.

Healed from Autism, Healing, Healing - Mind, Mind Attacks

It’s NOT God’s Will for Anyone to NOT Be in One’s Right Mind. His Word Says So.


I will say this over and over. No man can understand the Word of God outside of the Holy Spirit’s help and revelation, so no man can boast. He is our best Teacher and Helper. We must prayerfully commune with Him as we read His Word which is Spirit and intended to be understood in a revelatory way by Him alone.

Yes, people are called to teach the Word, but we are to take everything we are taught and make sure it lines up with His truth, and so we can understand it by the Spirit and apply it personally. Without personal revelation of the Word from the Holy Spirit, there is no strong faith foundation to be able to stand on it.

So praise God for the Holy Spirit’s powerful teaching to me about this.

One day within the past several months, I was praying for my son’s healing from autism and other neuroimmune disorders that affect His mind, and praying in the Spirit (which by the way is how He often speaks to me in revelatory “downloads” about the Word or something personal I am seeking wisdom from Him for and even prophetic words to share with others as He alone leads).

Anyway, the Lord dropped an amazing word in my spirit that it’s His will for ALL people to be able to do His will and what that means regarding being on one’s right mind.

Why would God tell us to do His will and obey His command to love Him with our whole minds when some people are so afflicted in the mind they are unable to love Him with all of it?

He wouldn’t. So He made provision through healing the mind totally and in every way.

“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment,” (Mark 12:30).

He made it possible for ALL to be able to do His will = love Him with ALL our mind.

Then, He led me to pray, “Lord, it’s Your will for all, not just some, to love you with ALL our minds, so put my son back into his right mind, so he may love you with all of it and also be able to be in Your will. You made provision by paying for healing for all by Jesus’ stripes, so we can do Your will in all things according to Your Word and commands for us to do so in Jesus’ name, amen.

Wow! Wow! Lord, You are amazing. You are an awesome Teacher who leads us into all truth.

And, yes, this healing of being put back into one’s right mind is for right now in the land of the living because in heaven, of course, all people there are 100% in God’s will, 100% of the time. “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” (Matthew 6:10).

So the devil is a liar when he uses people to say healing is only for heaven as there is no need for God tell those in heaven to do His will to love Him with their all, including their mind, there.

If God is telling us to do His will, He is 100% of the time referring to people who are still on the earth.

Make sense? Holy Spirit make this word revelatory to everyone who reads this and all Your people really, wherever they are, because this is so important, and all from You for Your glory.

Mighty God, how we praise You for making provision for healing from all manner of sickness and disease, including afflictions of any kind of the mind.

It’s YOUR will for ALL to be able to do Your will, not a select few. And Your will is that we love You with ALL our minds, one cannot do that if they are not in their right mind, so You made a way, by Jesus’ stripes we were healed (1 Peter 2:24), provision, for all to be in Your will, to love You as such. Glory to the Lamb! We bless You and magnify You, O God, You and You alone.

I give God all the glory for this revelation from the Holy Spirit. What a blessing to receive another verse to stand on for my son’s healing until it fully manifests. I praise You, my Lord Jesus!
