About PTSD

Treatment can be a combination of psychotherapy or counseling, and medication. Counseling aims towards a better understanding and processing of the patient’s thoughts and feelings. For example, guilt feelings over not having prevented the death of a friend can be addressed through self-forgiveness.

Commonly felt emotions by individuals with PTSD can include fear, anxiety, sadness, depression, guilt, shame, anger and irritability. The symptoms of trauma usually manifest because of unsettled thoughts and emotions.

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder is experienced by so many people in so many walks of life.  Here at ATP Ministries, we believe that the most powerful tool for healing is a relationship with the Lord and that by using available resources, along with seeking His love and grace, hope that can come from no other source will be found and healing will be even stronger.

God is a God who is able to reach deep down into our soul – our emotions and thoughts and will – and bring healing and freedom! One can pray for a person suffering from PTSD by asking the Holy Spirit to bring transformation or renewal to his mind and healing of the heart and soul. This can help speed up progress in counseling, or even bring an instant miracle! The Holy Spirit is the best Counselor and Comforter (John 14:26). He is also our Healer.

This, however, does not mean that counseling should be forgone and be replaced by prayer alone. Because traumatic experience may have caused lies and fear to enter into the person’s heart and the painful incident wounded the person’s soul, we should pray for healing of the soul and renewal of the mind.  Finding a Christian PTSD treatment counselor is best, but if there is a government-funded program that does not have a Christian counselor on hand, then reading the Scriptures and having someone pray will go a long way toward recovery.

Prayers for PTSD Victims

There are so many passages in the Bible, especially in the Psalms, that we can pray over a person with PTSD. He or she may even read them and declare them over his or her mind, heart, will, spirit and body. Having said that, here are some Scripture-based prayers that can help. Search out the Bible for more if you wish. But for now, you can use this prayer by simply filling in the blanks with the name of the person you are praying for:

Father, make Your presence known to ______ each and every single day, as the God who is near to the brokenhearted and who saves the crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18) For indeed You are.

In Your name I speak healing and restoration upon each and every wound that was inflicted upon _____’s life. Thank You for healing and binding my friend’s wounds! (Psalm 147:3)

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is Your steadfast love toward ______; as far as the east is from the west, so far You remove ______’s transgressions from him/her.

In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
