PRAYERS FOR YOUR TRAUMA HEALING JOURNEY -PART 1
One prayer I often pray is: “Father - make the crooked places straight in my heart”
I get this prayer from the metaphor often found in Scripture of “preparing the way of the Lord”
In the Old Covenant before Jesus came, Prophets would proclaim His coming and they would declare that One was coming who would make things right with humanity. Who would “level the playing field” against sin, corruption and evil.
One who would heal and restore and repair. One who would light the way both in the world and in our hearts.
I love this metaphor because it is so profoundly true in the context of trauma.
Sin & Trauma creates so much confusion, dysregulation and disruption in our hearts and minds.
As a result, we can see things from distorted lenses.
What is safe seems unsafe & what is unsafe can seem safe.
We can be reactive or easily shut-down as a result of our nervous system’s sensitivity.
