As many of our readers know, Communion, taking blessed bread and wine, is an important part of our healing model. Along with daily communion is our daily spiritual hygiene prayer. This is a 60 second prayer that spiritually protects from the intrusion of the kingdom of darkness. Here is a recent testimony:
“For years I have suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome and have tried many different approaches to relieve the tiredness. When I started saying your spiritual hygiene prayer, along with taking communion daily, in the manner you recommended, I noticed, for the first time in years, that I had more energy. That was several years ago now and my chronic fatigue is no longer an issue.”
It is important to state that while this worked for Jen, it is not a recommended solution to CFS. Like all ailments, a systematic approach brings the most consistent results. Such an approach considers the impact of dissociative and non-dissociative trauma, generational iniquity, lifestyle choices, and the specific sin profile for CFS. In this particular case, God used communion and the spiritual hygiene prayer to heal the CFS without needing to do the other steps. Why does God sometimes bypass or shortcut the normal healing process? There are a variety of reasons. I will suggest a couple. The person could have been struggling with the validity of communion or saying prayers on a daily basis. Alternatively, she may have been desperate for healing of her CFS and losing hope, and so the Holy Spirit healed her immediately to encourage her. In Jen’s case, as a consequence of her healing, she has continued to pursue a deeper understanding of factors blocking healing for other issues in her life.
