A Prayer to Relieve Burdens

A Prayer When Burdens Are Too Much to Bear

A PRAYER WHEN BURDENS ARE TOO MUCH TO BEAR

I am not able to bear all these people alone, because the burden is too heavy for me. If You treat me like this, please kill me here and now—if I have found favor in Your sight—and do not let me see my wretchedness!”

NUMBERS 11:14-15

But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!”

1 KINGS 19:4

Then Jesus said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.”

MATTHEW 26:38

Above in Numbers 11:14-15, we see the children of Israel were more than a handful for Moses, a burden too much to bear, so much so that he asked God to kill him.

How did God answer Moses’s prayer to kill him?

So the Lord said to Moses: “Gather to Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people and officers over them; bring them to the tabernacle of meeting, that they may stand there with you. Then I will come down and talk with you there. I will take of the Spirit that is upon you and will put the same upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, that you may not bear it yourself alone,” (Numbers 11:16-17).

God answered Moses by relieving his burden seventy fold. He answered with love, mercy, and understanding.

In 1 Kings 19:4 above, we see also Elijah asking God to kill him. 

It’s not God’s will to kill us, it’s His will to give us life and give it more abundantly. Both Moses and Elijah were simply physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted which resulted in their prayers of desperation because the flesh is limited. But we can cry out to the One who makes a way.

How did God answer Elijah’s prayer to kill him? 

Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an angel touched him, and said to him, “Arise and eat.” Then he looked, and there by his head was a cake baked on coals, and a jar of water. So he ate and drank, and lay down again. And the angel of the Lord came back the second time, and touched him, and said, “Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for you.” So he arose, and ate and drank; and he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights as far as Horeb, the mountain of God,” (1 Kings 19:5-8). 

God answered by showing him he needed to rest and miraculously provided food and water for him twice. Once again, He answered with love, mercy, and understanding.

Finally, in Matthew 26:38, we have Jesus, the King of glory Himself, in anguish in response to the human flesh that enveloped him. 

But glory to our Lord Jesus Christ who took it all the wrath of God upon Himself for us, so the works of the devil are destroyed in our lives when we take Him for His Word by faith.

Seeing in the Word above that God cares about the burdens we bear should increase our faith to pray because faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

The Prayer

Lord, Your name is Faithful and True, and I see in Your Word that You care deeply about the burdens I bear, that You see that what I bear can be too much for me, and is right now. Your Word, the truth, shows me You heart towards Your children and that You are willing to relieve my burdens when I cry out to You as You did for Moses and Elijah.

I am Your blood bought, beloved child, and You are my Father who cherishes me and knows the number of hairs on my head. You love me so much that You gave Your Son for me. I cry out to You knowing that relief of my burdens is on its way even now. I will walk by faith and not by sight and take You for Your Word that You are Deliverer and Waymaker and that many are the afflictions of the righteous but You deliver us from them all. And that includes me because I am fully righteous by Jesus Christ. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

The NAME Above Every Name – A Prayer for Healing

The name above every name - a prayer for healing

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11

Prayer

Lord, we rebuke every affliction attacking, (name), at the root and command them to go and never return in the name of Jesus. Grace us to keep our eyes solely on You, Lord Jesus, and You ARE the Word.

Let the storms around, (name), melt like wax in Your presence. All afflictions have a name and You are the NAME above all names so we squash every bit of sickness, disease, the demonic affecting, (name) in JESUS’ name, amen.

Faith, Faith Comes by the Word of God

I Walk by His Word – A Declaration of Faith

By His Word

Jesus Heals a Man at the Pool of Bethesda

John 5:1-15:

After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had.

Now a certain man was there WHO HAD AN INFIRMITY 38 YEARS. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition A LONG TIME, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?” The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.” Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” And IMMEDIATELY the man was MADE WELL, took up his bed, and walked.

Declaration of Faith

Lord, I walk by faith and not by sight. I walk by faith and not by length of illness. I walk by faith and not by doctors’ reports. I walk by faith and not by what is impossible with man. I walk by Your Powerful Word and not by the limitations of this earthly realm. I walk by my inheritance in Christ not by what others say about me. I walk by Your death and resurrection, not by the works of the devil.

By His stripes, I am healed, my child is healed, those that I am praying for are healed, in Jesus’ mighty name, amen.

Parents and Caregivers Standing on the Promises of God for Your Autistic Child’s Healing – A Prophetic Word

A Word for Parents and Caregivers believing God for Healing for Child

A handy dandy Venn diagram because, nerdy.

 

Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all!

EPHESIANS 3:20 TPT

I have a teenage son on the autism spectrum who is also afflicted with PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal infections), a nightmare disorder that is best described (in my opinion) as a tormenting nightmare for both my son and me. Beginning in June 2018, I have been living a Spirit led, fasted life, standing on the Word, “These things only come out by fasting and prayer.” Mark 9:29

The Lord spoke this word to me to share with the small group of women whom I fast and pray with for healing from the same conditions as my son.

He also told me to share it here because it is for those who are walking by faith and not by sight [2 Corinthians 5:7] and who’ll…ONLY BELIEVE! [Mark 5:36]

The Lord said to STRETCH your imagination regarding your child, his (her) healing, and his (her) future, and stretch your imagination for yourself too, for your stolen hopes and dreams, seemingly dead when because of the time needed to care for a child whose health was stolen from him (her).

You can relate to these half-truths and twistings of the enemy to get you to doubt God. Take those thoughts captive and make them obey Christ!

He immediately reminded me that the enemy would keep trying to bring his lies to me so I limit my imagination and faith for son’s healing. He said the accuser will come and say ‘you are selfish to want your son healed, to want a future for yourself too because you are serving a special needs child’.

The truth is, yes, I serve my son, but it is not selfish for me to seek God for His healing promises to restore my son’s health and Psalm 139:16 future to be independent and have a family of his own – a dream he shares with me as we stand together for his healing. The Lord does not condemn me, His beloved daughter, for wanting my dreams resurrected too, the very dreams I believe came from Him. At the center of everything regarding my son is LOVE.

Do not allow him to use and twist what is beautiful about you (e.g. your servant’s heart, selflessness, etc.) to condemn you.

Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, resist the devil, and He WILL flee [James 4:7].

The Lord reminded, “It does not make a person more righteous to serve and care for a special needs vs. a typical child. You gladly and with honor care for your special needs child, but it does not add to the righteousness you already have in Christ. Your righteousness and identity are in Me alone. So imagine as BIG as you can for your son and yourself because I will exceed it” [Ephesians 3:10]. Feelings of additional righteousness for serving a special needs child is a lie to get tenderhearted moms, dads, and caretakers like us to limit our faith as well as cause pride and idolatry.

Guard your heart, guard your heart, guard your heart

Be careful with whom you share what you’re believing God for regarding your child’s healing (even with other believers). When you begin to REALLY stand on the Word of God, you will get opposition, and sharing that with the ‘wrong’ people will invite naysaying and sometimes cruel attacks. Instead of them being happy for where you’re at with your faith and growth from God, some will try to talk you out of it and pull you down to their faith level, instead of turning to what the Word says about it, “I believe. Help my unbelief.” Also, some believe their children are called to suffer and them as well and won’t even ask the Lord for healing. Even Job was healed in the end.

Keep stretching your imagination for your child, his (her) healing, and his (her) future for yours too.

See him (her)…

  • walking, leaping, and praising God!
  • restored in health (in every way) and independent.
  • as a father or mother with a godly spouse and family.
  • prospering in every way.
  • free from torment, a captive set free.
  • so loved by a Father who is willing to heal, who came to heal and set us free, who wants your child well.

See yourself…

  • dreaming again.
  • dusting off your old journals, pulling out the prophetic words spoken about you, and speaking them out again, in faith and in Jesus’ name. (And go do it).
  • as the mother, father, or caretaker of a healed child, caretaker no more, whose identity and worth is in Christ alone, not in the title ‘special needs caretaker’ or what you do.
  • as a captive set free too.
  • ministering to and freely giving to others, in Jesus’ name, the healing He gave to your child.
  • free, no longer a caretaker.
  • healed in your body from the trauma and toll of caretaking.

Prayer

Lord, whomever this word is before, that it stirs their faith and is received fully and as revelation knowledge. That they, ‘only believe,’ according to Your Word. May they know You as Healer as well as Savior because You are those things and so much more. I’m in agreement with anyone who reads this Word and receives it by faith. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

Little by little I am seeing my son being healed before my eyes. Glory to the Lamb!

P.S. This word is for ANY special needs parent or caregiver who’ll stretch his (her) imagination with God.

Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination!

EPHESIANS 3:20-21 (TPT)

Faith, Prayer, Purpose and Plans of God

Intercessors – Praying GOD’S Will Into the Earth

Cover th earth in prayer

Intercessors

Every move of God, big or small, was prayed into the earth by intercessors at the obedience of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes through one on fire saint or the prayers of many and all in tune with the heart and voice of God.

Answer His call to pray:

  • HIS Will into the earth as it is in heaven [Matthew 6:10] in every area of your life, your sphere of influence, and the secret things He reveals to You.
  • into existence to thwart, cancel, and destroy the plans, assignments and works of the devil upon the face of the earth.

Then, each move, plan, and purpose for the church and every son and daughter should be backed up continually by the fervent, effective prayers of His people.

If you don’t have a vital and trusted prayer partner, ask the Lord to send you one.

Don’t let the enemy or anyone convince you to underestimate the power of prayer.
