KIB 121 – Purim and Uprooting Evil
Join Dr. Lake and Mary in their discussion about pertinent news and information, as we approach the celebration of Purim and the story of Esther. Mary talks about the spiritual dynamics of inner vows and bitter root judgments. Vows can be made in childhood, because of hurts or disappointments, that can affect us throughout our adulthood. They examine the spiritual principles involved and provide a prayer of release for the listeners. In addition, Dr. Lake provides insights to the balance that is needed among believers by comparing teachings that warn about giving too much attention to demons versus our instructions in Ephesians 5:3-13. Mary gives some tips for a blessed Purim celebration.

Prayer: Father, we choose to forgive all those that have hurt and disappointed us, and we ask forgiveness for any judgments that we made as a result of their words or actions. We renounce any vows that we have made, as a result, and we ask that the blood of Jesus be applied to any bitter roots that have sprung up as a result. Father, we are grateful for the price that Jesus paid to free us from our sins, and we receive our release from any strongholds that were built by our judgments and vows. We take authority over any evil spirits that had access through these judgments and vows, and we bind their power. We command them to leave and go to the feet of Jesus, in Jesus’ name. We ask as the root withers, dies, and is removed, that You would fill the void with the Holy Spirit. As we are transformed by the renewing of our mind during the reading of Your Word, we ask that You would reveal any thought patterns that were established by these vows and judgments so that we may be made whole, in Jesus’ name. I receive the cancellation of any reaping that I set in motion by the judgments I have sown, and I receive restoration and the blessings that are promised in Your Word, in Jesus’ name.
