A Pattern For Spiritual Loosing

As desciples of Christ, we have authority to bind and loose spirits of all kinds. This authority is given to us in Matthew 18:18, as shown in the loosing, below.

The loosing shown below can serve as a general method, a pattern, for loosings of all kinds.

First, we spiritually perceive that someone has been bound in some way, and that he seeks our help. In this case, the person was bound by chains which kept him from learning and performing music. He asked me to pray for him. (Make sure that Holy Spirit wants you to loose this person before you try to do it! Usually, Holy Spirit is in favor of loosing all people from all chains. Jesus preaches release to the captives, in Luke 4:18.)

Next, we speak to the person (or write to him) telling that we recognize the problem and will take action by authority of Jesus Christ.

Then we cite the authority, Matthew 18:18.

Next, we pray to the Lord that He renew and refresh this authority, and that we use it only according to His will.

Then we issue the loosing command. It is good to use the visual image of chains and relate that to the loosing of Paul's chains (Acts 12:7). Make sure that you issue the command clearly in Jesus' name. This is a command, not a prayer. We end the command with the statement, "Now let it so be done!" This concentrates the command, then releases it to do its work.

Finally, we pray again, some kind of prayer of thanks or of submission, as the Spirit leads.

Here now is the actual loosing which can serve as our pattern:

   (Person in need states his problem and asks for help)
"> Pray for me."
Dear XXX,
 . . . I perceive that somehow you have been bound so that you have not
been able to learn about music. Who knows how or why the binding occurred.
Nevertheless, I have power to unbind you, by authority of Jesus Christ,
according to Matthew 18:18:
       
      "Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in
       heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
       (Matthew 18:18 RSV)
First a prayer . . .
   O Lord, please refresh and renew my authority to bind and loose, as
   given by you in Matthew 18:18. Please let me use this authority only
   according to Your will. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Now the loosing . . .
   There is a spirit of binding on my brother XXX so that he cannot retain
   musical instruction. By the power given to me by Jesus Christ,
   according to His Word, I hereby break these chains that bind, and I
   loose XXX so that he may now learn and write and perform music. As
   Paul was loosed from his earthly chains in prison, so now let XXX be
   loosed from these spiritual chains. In Jesus' name I issue this
   command.
      Now let it so be done!
                                        <><
Now another prayer . . .
    O Lord, You know that I belong to You. 
    Without You, I am nothing, less than dust.
    I throw myself with kisses at Your feet.
    I give myself completely unto You.
            Amen.
That should do it, XXX. Read the loosing over and over until it works.  
 
 You can also add your own prayers that He help you use these new
abilities for His work.
   Yours in Christ,
