Frankly Speaking ........Now!
Fighting for your Child!


Dear Parents,

As I was praying tonight, I prayed for as restoration of your child’s health!  By the stripes of Jesus, we are completely healed and David reminded himself and us not to forget His benefits.  “He heals all our diseases.” Psalms 103:3.  His desire is to restore our health…physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually!  Jesus came to do the Father’s will and He went about healing….

We also prayed for deliverance from an addictive nature and freedom from the oppression from the enemy that keeps attacking your child.  We bound rebellion and released the Spirit of Freedom and Liberty into their life.  Whom the Son sets free is free indeed, John 8:36.  We need to continually declare freedom over their life in spiritual warfare. “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but principalities, against powers, against rulers of darkness in this world and against spiritual wickedness in high places,” Ephesians 6:12.  We are reminded to, “Be strong in the Lord and the power of His might AND to put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the tricks of the devil.” Eph 6:10-11.

Obviously, you are in a war for your child.  As I was praying, I felt an expediency to do something now!  Let me relate a story to you...

I was being attacked night after night in my sleep.  It went on for weeks...maybe even a month.  I remember being awakened each night to something choking me and having its hand over my mouth.  I knew if I could just say the name, Jesus...everything would be alright.  It was like I was mumbling the word…it just wouldn’t come out, but as I kept trying, finally JESUS would emerge and the presence would leave.  

It was only when I had enough and took authority that the attacks finally stopped.  It was like a holy anger came over me.  I remember finally jumping out of bed and declaring,”This is my house…you have no right here.  I command you in Jesus name to leave this house.  I command you in Jesus name to stop tormenting me and leave me alone.  In the name of Jesus, I bind you from having any more freedom to disrupt, causing confusion or fear.  Leave now, in Jesus name!”  He shed his blood for my freedom and I will continue to put on the whole armor of MY GOD.  Thank you Jesus for your freedom!”

I have never had those attacks again.  It is like drawing the line in the sand…enough is enough.  It is in the same attitude as Joshua, “Choose this day who you will serve….as for me and my house, WE will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15.

It is also in the same attitude as David.  The giant had put the whole army of Israel In fear.  He taunted them day and night with his ridicule and tormenting words.  When David saw what the enemy was doing to his people, Holy anger arose in him, also. “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine who torments the army of the living God?  This day will the Lord deliver you into my hands!” He slew the giant!!  Your child has a “giant” that needs to be slain.   They are also being tormented like I was.  Someone needs to draw the line for them and fight for their life during this season.

You guys are great parents and you love your child.  Please do not be offended by anything I have written or am saying.  I would not write such a long letter unless I knew the Lord had directed and given me the words to share.  All of the above examples came to me as I was praying for your child and for you, as parents, to have wisdom in knowing what to do. I do not know where you are with your understanding of all this, but I will trust the Lord and the Holy Spirit with revealing and helping in recognizing the truth!

It is going to be tough, in some ways, doing what I am going to suggest. Hopefully, the Lord is speaking to you as you read this!  Take authority over your household.   It is your house and the enemy has no right to be there.  Take back what has been stolen from you.  Let the Lord take that which was meant for evil against your family and turn it into good…a testimony!  I will not assume in what I will share; if you are doing it…great.  I will remind you again. You may do this as a couple, or maybe gather some friends you trust to be in agreement with you for all these things!

Each night, lift your child up in prayer.  Better yet, if you can…pray with them, anointing them with the oil of the Holy Spirit!  Anoint your house with oil….rededicating it to the Lord….inviting Him to bring peace that passes all understanding into your household.  Ask Him to bring His blessing there and His anointing and presence!

As the Lord leads, bind anything that the Lord brings to your hearts…things like confusion, depression, discouragement, addiction, etc.  Direct each of those to leave…they do not belong there.  Continue to thank the Lord for bringing freedom, peace, healing, etc. into your household daily and into your child!

Play Christian music, preferably praise and worship, throughout the day and during the night, while monitoring what your child watches and listens to.  You are the authority and you are the parents.  Your child needs set boundaries right now and will love you for it…unfortunately, probably later!

Ask the Lord specifically what you would have Him to do.  Blind Bartimeaus obviously was blind, but Jesus asked Him what he wanted and he responded with, “Lord, that I might see!!”

No matter what the situation looks like, even if it doesn’t look like it is changing, continue to be consistent and persistent in your actions and your prayers. There WILL be a breakthrough! Think of what you are doing as a jackhammer that finally breaks through the concrete. We don’t know which one will do it….but if we keep hammering, the concrete will break, just as it will break around your child!

Declare the Word that the Lord gives you for your situation and for your child. “His word is like a fire and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces,” Jeremiah 23:29.  There is something that needs to be broken in your child’s life.  You have put up with it long enough.  YOU have the authority through Jesus Christ to bring your son back into the land of the living…the land of the free…”Come forth…come forth!”

In Job it says, “Decree a thing and it shall be established!”Job 22:28.

“Lord, I thank you that my child is free…..I thank you that they are free from addictions…I thank you that they are healed, no matter what it looks like.  I am going to believe your report Lord.  I am going to believe your word, Lord.   I thank you that my child is obedient and submissive to what we ask them to do.  I thank you that our child is going to fulfill the destinies you have ordained for their life!”  Hopefully, you get what I am saying. The Lord will give you more things to declare as you start with what you know!

It will not always be easy, but it will surely come….”Don’t get weary in well doing, because in due season you WILL reap a reward if you faint not!  If you don’t quit….If you continue hammering….there WILL be a breakthrough!

I pray I haven’t overwhelmed you!  There is no way that I can fully explain everything that I have written in the time I have to share.  Hopefully, God has already prepared you for the things I am sharing and you will just be strong….be of good courage….and just do it!

You WILL see your child free.  Jesus will back you up.  Even if you don’t know exactly what to do….good….Jesus will direct you.  I have shared a few examples.  They are suggestions and guidelines….but, ultimately, trust the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you in all you do.  You can trust Him completely.  He sees your heart and your concern.  

You are welcome to contact me if you would like to discuss this further.  I would be glad to talk to you on the phone.  Being a youth pastor at one time to over 200 young people and a youth evangelist, I have always had a heart for kids!   I desire your child to be free!!  I desire complete freedom…not just 99%.  I believe God wants to do miracles in your lives. Let’s believe together that all things will work out for good…You love the Lord and He loves you! 

Believing the best in you and with you....
