A Special Note from Bro. Christopher Gore
Recently through hands on deliverance experience we feel that the Lord has given us a new strategy for prayer. It involves praying for a person’s spirit man. Being led by the Spirit of God, we hope that this new strategy will help you in your pursuit of setting captives free. While we do believe praying for a person’s spirit man is biblical, (reference I Cor 14: 4) we must note that there is some non-doctrinal teachings that could open doorways in the spirit realm that are only meant to be opened by God.
I invite you to study the following teachings and notes on the human spirit. We would rather err on the side of caution than to blindly send God’s children onto forbidden ground. We do not believe that one should engage in any practice of witchcraft, especially the forms predicated upon manipulating your spirit body. We believe to do so is tantamount to witchcraft and we would like to note the Bible “expressly” condemns all practices of witchcraft. The punishments for such are clearly listed in the Old Testament.
As always please be led by God’s spirit when helping to set His Captives Free.
Bro. Christopher Gore

Prayer to Engage the Human Spirit
Submitted by Kay Nagel
Beloved, I call your spirit to attention. Spirit, I want you to engage with my spirit. Soul, step aside for the moment as I speak to the spirit. Spirit, arise and shine, for your light has come and the glory of the Lord is round about you. Arise, awaken, pay attention and cooperate in the purposes of God for you right now. Spirit, I am going to speak words of life to you and as you hear them, you will be able to receive them because you easily recognize the truth and are able to take it and appropriate it.
Spirit, you come from the very breath of God. In you is something of the essence of God. You are uniquely created for intimacy with God, to receive instruction and revelation from Him. You come from God and are created for life in God. You are designed and you are invited to abide in God, to find rest in him, comfort and peace, healing and nurture. You are given the honor and the privilege of being seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. To you is offered understanding and empowerment.
Spirit, your heavenly Father knit you together with the soul and body when you were in your mother’s womb. When He was finished, He was very pleased. He created a masterpiece and you are part of that. In fact, spirit, you give life to that masterpiece, and as you abide in Christ and are submitted to Holy Spirit, you give supernatural life to that masterpiece. Spirit, your function is extremely important. Your participation is necessary for the fulfillment of destiny.
Spirit, you have kept a record of everything that has happened in your life, from the point of conception to this very moment. Nothing is lost to you. Everything is accessible. Events, good and bad, that are not known to the mind, are in the record you have kept.
Spirit, you may have experienced betrayal, disappointment, defilement, shame. You may have been ignored, overpowered, or dismissed, but none of that is the last word on the subject for you. Because God has put in you everything necessary for life and godliness, and because God is always available to you to help you, you are not a victim. Even if the soul has adopted a victim mind-set, you are not a victim; you are created to be victorious, to overcome all that has come against you.
You are created to bring healing and nurture to the soul and the body. Wisdom is yours for the asking; strategies and divine plans to turn things around will be given to you as you seek; tools and healing balms will be placed in your hands as you knock and keep on knocking. The heavenly storehouses are open to you and their contents are yours to use for Kingdom purposes.
Spirit, you know where there has been abuse, trauma, rejection, sin. You know where the unhealed wounds are festering. You know the defense mechanisms that have been developed for protection. You know the coping strategies that have become second nature. And spirit, you know the One who knows all of this and has already made provision for it.
Spirit, these two days in this school are a time for you to shine. Now is the time for you to rise up and be who God created you to be. Now is the time for you to do what He created you to do.
Spirit, even now, I want you to go before the very face of God, go to the One who breathed you into existence, who loves you with an incomprehensible love, who always welcomes you with open arms, go, and inquire of Him his plans for you these two days. Find out from Him what, exactly, He wants to bring out of hiding; what He wants to heal; what brokenness He wants to repair; what wrong-thinking He wants to replace; what unholy ways He wants to exchange for holy ones.
And then, spirit, find out what He wants you to do about it and obey everything He tells you do. You know that He is trustworthy, He is good, and everything He does is for your benefit. He will not leave you, He will not betray you, He will not harm you. He is for you, not against you. You can safely put your confidence in him.
Spirit, during the night watches tonight, and in the nights to come, while the soul is resting and the body is asleep, go to God. Keep inquiring of Him; keep receiving revelation, understanding and wisdom from him; keep learning strategies from him; and continue to obey him completely in all things.
Spirit I bless you with newfound confidence; I bless you with increasing strength; I bless you to fulfill the destiny for which you were created. I bless you, in Jesus name. Amen.
