Prayer for Rest
I thank you Lord, that because of your grace and mercy you are the giver of good gifts.
I thank you Lord, that your Holy Spirit dispels chaos and fear everywhere he goes.
I ask you Lord, to forgive me for the times in my life that I have purposefully chosen chaos and anxiety rather than asking you to deal with my worries and fears.
I repent for the times in my life when I have not accepted your rest, but instead have invited stress, disorganization and confusion.
Forgive me, Lord, for anyone I may have hurt by my words and behaviors when I was under stress and swimming in chaos. I ask you to bless those I may have hurt and place them under the shadow of your wings.
As a member of my family line I repent for all those who used drugs, alcohol or medications to force rest upon their bodies and spirits rather than turning to you.
As a member of my family line I repent for all those who although they knew you, chose pride and selfish ambition over surrender to your Sabbath rest.
In the name of Jesus I break, shatter, cut-off and dissolve and destroy all ungodly frequency vibrations, lay lines, tubes and mechanisms that have prevented my brain from receiving your rest. Father, I ask you to tune my brain to your heartbeat.
Father, in Jesus name I ask you to seal all ungodly dimensions and open up the godly dimensions that lead to you and the revelation of your purposes in my life.
I declare that you give only light burdens. I welcome your gentle touch upon my life.
In the name of Jesus, I break, shatter, dissolve and destroy the behaviors in my life that have prevented me from observing your Sabbath rest and remembering your healing touch.
Father, in the name of Jesus, I ask you now to come into my brain and transform any thoughts that are not pleasing to you. Seal all cracks in my brain that have allowed chaos and fear to enter.
I thank you Lord, and bless your name because you carry my problems and teach me to depend on you. Teach me about the peace and joy of your Sabbath rest.
In the name of Jesus I accept quietness into my heart.
Thank You Lord that you are the God of rest!

Prayer for Attention Deficit Disorder
Lord Jesus I thank you that your healing power purchased through the cross of Calvary is available for me today.
I declare that you created my brain for the purpose of bringing glory to your name. I do not want my brain to be conformed to the patterns of this world, instead I ask for your transforming power to enter all areas of my brain that you might give me the ability to process academic and spiritual wisdom from your Holy Spirit.
I declare that I believe that you created my inner most being and that my brain is fearfully and wonderfully made by your hand.
Lord I repent of all the times I have not regarded my brain and my learning abilities as a gift from you. I ask you to forgive me for the negative thoughts and words that I have spoken against my own brain and learning abilities.
I repent of trying to solve my learning problems through my own efforts rather than turning to receive your love, grace and healing touch first.
I choose to forgive parents, teachers and friends who have not believed in my mental abilities or who have made learning more difficult for me. In the name of Jesus I now free them from unreasonable expectations I may have placed upon them.
Lord, I ask you to remove all generational sin from my family line that may have played a part in my present learning struggles. As a member of my family line I repent for all those who although they knew you, did not use their brains to glorify you but rather engaged in futile and foolish spiritual thinking.
Lord, I repent for those in my family line who had used their brains to misuse the spiritual gifts that you had provided for them.
In the name of Jesus I command the neurons in my brain to function properly. I command in Jesus name that the damaged dendrites in my brain be healed. All axons and synapses will respond to the healing touch of Jesus Christ and function the way they were created to work.
I command in Jesus name that the right and left-brain function normally and in complete balance and that all the academic and creative abilities I have will flow like a river.
In Jesus name I command that the electrical and chemical frequencies in every cell of my brain come into the harmony and balance.
In Jesus name I command Werenicke’s Area (speech) and Broca’s Area (understanding of language) to function normally.
In the name of Jesus I declare that impulse control and lack of attention to task be healed.
In the name of Jesus I declare that I have a new academic and occupational future. I break, shatter, dissolve and destroy the lie that says my brain will always remain the same.
In the name of Jesus I declare that I will not have a Spirit of fear about learning new things. I accept your gift of the spirit of power, love and self-discipline into my brain.
Lord I now ask you to give me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation that I might succeed in school and to know you better.
Prayer for Impulsivity
The issue of temporal awareness (timing) is a critical issue in the daily life of Attention Deficit Disorder individuals. Impulsivity (responding too quickly) keeps many A.D.D. individuals from receiving information in the learning environment and often makes personal decision making difficult. By speaking this prayer aloud on a daily basis we are asking the Lord to change the timing patterns in the brain and to place his healing touch over all impulsive behavior tendencies.
Please pause between the various sections of this prayer to allow the Lord Jesus to bring his healing touch to your brain. Be alert to any Scripture verses or thoughts the Lord might provide to you during your reflection time, record them in your journal for future reference.
Prepare your heart to recite this prayer. Ask the Lord for his presence.
(Pause For Reflection/Selah)
Father, I declare that your majestic presence reigns over all issues of timing in my life. I further declare that you are the author of all time and that you existed before time began.
I rejoice in proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. All issues of impulsivity and timing I gladly place under your dominion.
Lord, I repent of all the times in my life when I have made quick decisions without asking your Holy Spirit for wisdom and revelation. I ask you to put your healing touch on my brain so that I can learn to wait, to hear your voice before speaking or making decisions.
Lord Jesus, please forgive me for all the times that my words have been spoken impulsively and have hurt other people. I ask today Lord Jesus that you would free them from the pain or disappointment of my impulsive words and that you would pour out your blessings on every person that my impulsive words have hurt.
Lord Jesus, I ask you to supernaturally change my brain and slow me down that I might enjoy the daily wonders of the world you have created. Help me think before I speak. Lord Jesus, every time I am in a learning environment, I ask for the power of your presence so that I will understand all the information that is presented and process the information according to your timing.
In Jesus name I break, shatter, dissolve and destroy any generational sin that has kept my brain from receiving your healing touch. In Jesus name, I ask for correct alignment of all temporal and spatial dimensions in my brain. Lord, return to me the parts of my brain function that have been robbed by the enemy. In Jesus name, I command that the neurological firing of my brain be changed from random firing to the orderly firing and exact electrical impulses that I was created to receive from you. I ask you Lord Jesus to coat my brain in the redemptive blood of the Cross so that my impulsivity might be healed once and for all
From this day forward that I will turn to you first for wisdom and revelation about my brain and my learning problems. I declare that you are Jehovah Sebaoth in my life, the Lord of Hosts, the provider of miracles and the God for whom nothing is impossible. Lord will you now shower your healing power on the areas of my brain that need your touch.
Lord Jesus, I ask you to close all temporal dimensions that lead to demonic realms and to open all temporal dimensions that lead to a greater revelation of your glory.
I rejoice that I am seated with you in heavenly places. Lord Jesus would you now remove the human boundaries of time and space and give me a glimpse of your kingdom and your glory. I yearn to see you. Only the power of your presence can heal my brain.
In the mighty and powerful name of Jesus I pray.
