“Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray that (person(s) name) will come to the knowledge (and deliverance power) of the Truth and be saved from destruction (of mental illness). Father, according to Psalm 107:20, You sent Your Word and healed (person(s) name) and delivered him/her from all his/her destructions. I am calling upon You in the day of trouble, asking You to deliver(person(s) name) and in the name of Jesus he/she shall honor and glorify You. Father, I thank You for delivering his/her soul from death and his/her feet from falling, so that he/she may walk before You.
It is You, Father, Who delivers (person(s) name) from the pit and corruption of (name of disorder: schizophrenia, paranoia, manic depression, etc.) Father, You have not given him/her a spirit of timidity and fear, but You have given (person(s) name)a spirit of power and of love and of calm and well balanced mind and discipline and self-control.
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind,”(2 Tim 1:7) KJV
In the name of Jesus, I ask You, Father to forgive (person(s) name)sins and (and his/her ancestors’ sins, and now) I stand in the gap for him/her until he/she (like King Nebuchadnezzar) comes to his/her senses and escaped out of the snare of the devil, who has held him/her captive.
Father, I commit to pray on (person(s) name) behalf making up the hedge, and standing in the gap before You for her/him, that your mercy might triumphant over judgment. Jesus, You defeated the devil for(person(s) name) we take back everything Satan as stolen from him/her.
I decree and declare that the law of the (Holy) Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made him/her free from the law of sin and death. (Person(s) name)shall no longer be of 2 minds – hesitating, dubious, irresolute – unstable and unreliable and uncertain about everything (he/she thinks, feels and decides). (Person(s) name) shall get rid of all uncleanness, receive and welcome the Word, which, implanted and rooted [in his/her heart], contains the power to save his/her soul (mind, will, and emotions).
In the name of Jesus, grace be to (person(s) name) and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave Himself for his/her (and his ancestors’) sin so that He might deliver him/her from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father, to Whom be glory forever and ever. In Jesus’ Name — Amen.”
“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” — 1 Peter 1:13-16 KJV
