Strategic Freedom

A Quick Helpful Prayer Strategy

Good news! I have finished my book (Yay!) and I will be meeting with book agents June 7 and 8. Prayer that the Lord’s will be done is very appreciated.

Prayer Strategy: Cutting Free from the Future

The need to not only heal, but to cut free from the past is recognized among prayer ministers pretty much across the board. But there is also a need to cut free from ties to the future.

These ties can be a prophetic word that you are waiting to come true. Prophetic words about the future can keep you from living today. AND they can cause you to feel distress when your present life doesn’t look anything like that word.

Fear of what the future holds or hope in the future (instead of in Christ) can pull you into anxiety. Anything that causes you to live future-focused and not present-focused is a potential weapon in the hands of the evil one.

Now, let me clarify. A wise person plans for the future. But it is not good to anxiously live there. Instead, live your best present because the Lord has your future well in hand.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Prayer for Cutting Free from the Future

In the name of Jesus, by His blood and by His Word, I cut myself free from all ties to the future. My future belongs exclusively to the Lord. He is fully capable of managing it.

Lord God, please bring all of me into the present where I am supposed to live. Please bring to death any habits I have of living in the future. Amen.

Blessings upon you and those you love,

Susan

Hello. Here is a bit about my training and experience. I am an Elijah House-trained Christian prayer minister. Elijah House has long been recognized as the premier training school of ministry for prayer ministers. I’ve been teaching inner healing, training prayer ministers and pastors, and working one-on-one with clients for more than 20 years. I have studied more inner healing models then I can count, but here are a few of my teachers: Dr. Charles Kraft (Hearts Set Free Ministries), Dr. Ed Smith (Transformation Prayer Ministry), Dr. Jim Wilder (Deeper Walk International), Dr. Tom Hawkins (Restoration in Christ Ministries), Rev. John and Paula Sandford (Elijah House), Chris and Jen Coursey (Thrive Today) and Dr. Karl Lehman (Immanuel Approach). I have served as a children's pastor and a youth pastor within the traditional church and later as a ordained co-pastor of house churches. I am the founder of a nonprofit called The Pool Ministries.
