Confession and Healing

John 17:9-11 (NKJV) “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours. 10 And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them. 11 Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.

·      What the church should look like
·      One blood; one race
·     Lamenting our brokenness
·     Confession and healing
·      Forgiveness
·      Tearing down the WALL
·      Go to WAR; PRAY
  1. We need to repent and lament our broken past so it doesn’t become our broken future.

Romans 2:4(NKJV) Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?  

  • The prophets of old would often call Israel to repentance when she had fallen short of God’s call.
  • We need to call for repentance in our day as well.
  • Now that we see the problem, we should all cry out.
  • Repentance sometimes requires us to apologize for what we weren’t here to cause.
  • Don’t be afraid to own your part. (Rick Joyner prophecy and my experience sharing it)
  1. Confession ALWAYS brings healing.

James 5:16(NIV) Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

  • Are we courageous enough to admit what is in us.
  • Pride, anger, tradition, and self-righteousness has held us captive long enough.
  • Have the courage to say “I am sorry.”
  • Have the courage to receive the apology.
