Scripture Prayer Strategy:
The Most Common Spiritual Roots
Anger, resentment, unforgiveness, judgment, bitterness

The most common spiritual roots, by far, are unforgiveness and bitterness strongholds, lodged in the heart, as a result of judging with condemnation, resentment or dishonor. Studies show that most Christian workers who quit the ministry fail, because they cannot get along with other workers. If you have invited Jesus Christ to be Lord of your life, you have His love and power to forgive inside. Release Jesus to be the grace of God through you - even to the most unrepentant person.

Hebrews 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail the grace of God,
lest any root of bitterness, springing up trouble you, and thereby
many be defiled.

Most people who are frustrated with their Christian walk testify that they found freedom and healing with they finally overcame resentment, anger or unforgiveness. When we let these "roots grow underground," a bitterness stronghold begins. We already have His love abiding in us but when we pray scripture, the water of the Word washes us and Christ is able to forgive and love others through us. We were created to be love to others.

Jesus was perfect, yet he needed to pray scripture for 40 days in the wilderness in order to discern the wiles of the devil and to overcome the devil's temptations. Let declaring Truth make you free. Just allow Jesus to pray these verses through you, come into agreement with "Christ in you," and break the power of unforgiveness and bitterness by using Jesus' powerful and effective scripture prayer strategy.

Print this scripture prayer strategy and pray scripture daily if God convicts you of a stronghold. Pray for 40 days like Jesus did if necessary, "It is written ... ." Let the power of the Word of God discern between your soul and spirit and the thoughts and intents of your heart. People usually hold resentment because they are claiming their "rights to feel hurt" or "rights to restitution." You don't have to analyze, the Holy Spirit will quickly convict if we have unforgiveness or bitterness. After we swing the Sword of the Spirit and overcome the stronghold in ourselves, we can release the power of Jesus Christ to pray for others through us.

Heb 4:12-13 For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper
than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and
spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts
and intents of the heart
. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His
sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom
we must give account.


MAKING SURE WE AGREE WITH SCRIPTURE!

Luke 6:37-38 Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

Matt 6:12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.

Lev 19:17-18 You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. 18 You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.

Eph 4:31-32 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

Heb 12:14-16 looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;

Luke 6:43 For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by its own fruit

Luke 6:45 For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

John 20:22-23 He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.

Luke 9:23-24 Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.

Gal 2:20-21 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Gal 5:23-26 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

Hosea 8:7 7 They sow the wind, And reap the whirlwind.

Matt 3:10-12 And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Matt 5:17-18 Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.

Matt 15:16-19 So Jesus said, "Are you also still without understanding? 17 Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies."

1 Cor 11:30-31 For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep. 31 But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged.

Eph 4:26-28 Be angry, and do not sin: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, 27 nor give place to the devil.

Titus 3:1-3 ... speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men. 3 For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another.

James 4:11 Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.

Eph 6:13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Rom 2:1-3 Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. 2 But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.

Rom 12:17-20 Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.

Gal 6:1-3 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. 2 Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.

Luke 6:46 But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do the things which I say?

Rom 6:6-10 ... knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. 7 For he who has died has been freed from sin. 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.

1 John 2:9 He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.

1 Cor 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one's praise will come from God.

James 1:12-15 Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

James 5:15-17 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Phil 3:10-12 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, 11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. 12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.
