Prayer for the Co-Dependent

Frank and Gertrude Hiemstra, GraveBy Stephen W. Hiemstra

Loving Father:

We praise you for the many blessings of this life: for family, good health, and your provisions.

For we know that they are gifts that are given to some and withheld from many.

We confess that we are unworthy of your generosity and do not always act like your children, harboring unclean thoughts and acting out of unsavory motivations.

Yet, we thank you for remembering us in our fallen state and raising us from death to life in Jesus Christ by the power of your Holy Spirit. Thank you for our freedom to live in the love of Christ.

Remember also those that are unable or unwilling to live in your light. Turn their hearts through the power of  your Holy Spirit and grant them the strength to accept your mercy. Let them not live in fear depending on the strength of others, but grant them legs to stand on that they might be whole again.

In the strong name of Jesus Christ who died on the cross and was raised from the dead, we come against any family curses and cast out any lingering spirits of fear, abuse, guilt, shame, addiction, condemnation, territory, or disease. We bind the spirit of the child and cast it at the feet of Jesus to remain forever bound. We ask the Holy Spirit to enter this person’s heart and bind them to Christ Jesus, now and always.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
