I have stopped trying to fix my own “issues”
I no longer order my heart to “stop feeling that way.” Why? Because it doesn’t work! I know. I tried it. When I allowed myself the freedom to experience emotions, I found they were all over the place. That helped me understand why I had been taught they were soulish and unreliable and to be cut off. However, it was Jesus who had restored emotions to my heart. So I went to my journal and asked Him, “Lord, how do we process emotions spiritually, because my strivings of the flesh are completely ineffective in dealing with them?” He answered me…
GOD is the one who created emotions
Emotions are to be part of life, and they are to be a blessing, not a curse. Emotions are not to be negative conduits of demonic energy (Eph. 2:2,3), but rather carriers of the healing presence of the Holy Spirit (Rom. 14:17).
Compassion is the carrier wave of God’s healing power. Fear and anger are the carrier waves of demonic energy. I have experienced both. I choose compassion. Jesus, moved by compassion, healed (Matt.14:14).
Once I allowed myself to feel, then…
In my first few months of journaling (in 1979), God said, “I want to restore emotion to your life.” He gave me three steps to take, which I did: 1) Read the Gospels and see that Jesus healed because He was moved by compassion; 2) Read the Psalms and note that David had emotions and processed them all in the presence of God, and that was fine; and 3) Note how tenderly God loved me in my journaling and learn to love myself and others the same way. In doing these three things, I repented of my scorn and disdain toward emotions, and acknowledged the truth that they are created by God and to be filled by God. I prayed and asked God to restore emotion to me and He answered my prayer. I began to feel.
Then I discovered that my emotions were all over the place, so I asked how to resolve this and He taught me that emotions are by-products of pictures. If I would let Him give me the pictures I was to look at, and I looked ONLY at these pictures, then I would experience HIS emotions! Wow! What an insight. I have found that is the BEST tool I have to guide my emotions throughout the day.
Big hurts open the door to what?
However, after suffering some really big wounds and some really big battles, I experienced vivid, powerful negative emotions rise up and grip me from within. They were very controlling!
I wondered, what is this? For example, if I was in a threatening situation, I would sense fear rise up and grip me and absolutely control my inner being. Fear took me over. I could not shake it.
Well, I discovered that these things that rose up within me and gripped me were actually demonic forces which needed to be cast out. This was something Jesus did with great regularity. Of course, my church did not do that but you know what, I don’t care. What I care about is what the Bible models and teaches. I have chosen to live my life according to what I see in Scripture. I can’t imagine any good reason not to.
Delivered from demons…after three decades in ministry!
So I asked a husband and wife prayer team to pray deliverance over me and in three hours they cast about 20 demons out of me! Wow! Did I feel better! You should try it! You will feel better, too! I wrote about my experience in the book Prayers That Heal the Heart. This couple was absolutely amazing in the variety of prayers they utilized and in the way they allowed the Spirit to lead the prayer time.
I followed up this prayer ministry with lots of journaling and Bible meditations which extended the victory out even further. I began by applying the prayers they prayed over me into additional crevices in my heart which needed healing prayer and had not been addressed during the ministry time.
I would wake up in the middle of the night realizing, wow, here is another person whom I need to sever ungodly soul ties with, and I would sever them. Here is another person I need to forgive and I would forgive them. Here is another painful memory I need to bring Jesus into and allow Him to heal, and so I would do inner healing prayer. After a couple of weeks, this process waned and a new activity took its place.
How to avoid ending up worse off than you are now
Finally, I needed to rebuild the walls that had been torn down so I didn’t invite the demons back. It was my ongoing sin which invited them in, in the first place. So I needed to stop sinning or the Bible said they would come back and bring seven worse with them (Matt. 12:45). Yuck.
So I closed the door by doing Bible meditations on the areas which were the opposite of the sins I had been walking in. For example, I had been living in the sin of fear, so I did a Bible meditation looking up verses on faith. I memorized them, journaled about them, and spoke them over my life so I would learn a new way of thinking, believing and living.
I had been living in bitterness, anger and hatred, so once these demons were cast out, I looked up Scriptures which were the opposite of these things – verses on love, forgiveness and mercy. I meditated on them, memorized them, journaled about them and spoke them over my life so that I could begin living them.
I did this with each area in which I had received deliverance. I suggest you plan for a one month meditation on each area you are rebuilding. The Bible meditations I completed can now be found in the appendices of the book Prayers That Heal the Heart which is my testimony of this entire healing experience.
My journaling this morning about prayers that heal the heart
In the journaling below, the Lord walks me through each of the seven prayers.
Lord, what do You want to speak to me concerning prayers that heal the heart?
Mark, everyone’s heart is wounded, continuously. It is a life-long battle to live with a pure heart, and it comes by beholding Me. Me in the midst of all life. Me in the midst of your battles. Me in the midst of your victories. Me in the midst of world events. Me in the midst of personal events. The pure in heart shall see Me. Only Me. Continuously. Always (Matt. 5:8). There is no other way to stay pure in heart.
In Prayers That Heal the Heart you see Me from birth ’til death. You see Me in the womb, separating from the evil one and from all evil being passed down through the family tree.
In relationships you see Me cutting ungodly soul ties which hold people captive and setting them free.
In breaking off ungodly beliefs, it is I Who reveal what these ungodly beliefs are and the inner vows which go with them, and it is I Who give the revelation of the godly truths which replace them and the things to now purpose to do by the power of the Holy Spirit.
In inner healing it is I Who reveal the past memories which remain toxic in the heart, and it is I Who walk into those memories and reveal Myself, My love, My power and My grace.
In breaking off the power of word curses, it is I Who reveal what these curses are and it is I Who speak the truth which counters these demonic lies.
In casting out of demons, it is I Who reveal their names and their presence, and it is My power that dispels them and removes them.
Healing the heart is ALL about Me. That is why it is essentially impossible to heal the heart outside of Me. One may put bandages on it or provide drugs to cope with its toxins. One may even seek to use the strength of their flesh to overcome the evil in their hearts, but it will all be of no avail. I AM the Healer of the hearts of mankind. Man cannot heal his own heart. Only the living God can heal the hearts of mankind. That is why every other attempt pales in the light of My glory.
Bring My glory, My power and My wisdom to the restoration of the heart and it will be healed. Behold I have spoken. Behold it is to be done.
Thank You, Lord.
Over the years, I have used the principles and teachings from Prayers That Heal the Heart to pray through my own heart issues as the Holy Spirit has led. Whether you are new to inner healing as I was in 2003 or have gone through much healing, this way of praying WILL revolutionize your life. One student told me that after 20+ years of her healing journey, she experienced what she called a “great spiritual tidying up” due to Prayers That Heal the Heart. I encourage you to take a deep dive into this new and enhanced edition. I am confident that it will be a well-worn resource in your library.

Mark and Patti have creatively and concisely expressed the Lord’s revelations to them, to us, and to others. We are delighted that the revelation, understanding, and necessity for the Integrated Approach to Ministry will be shared even more broadly throughout the Body of Christ. The Virklers have expressed these revelations in a very user-friendly and practical way. With the exercises and worksheets, anyone that desires can use these tools to receive more healing and freedom from the Lord. This is His Heart, that our hearts be healed.
–CHESTER AND BETSY KYLSTRA, Founders and Overseers of Proclaiming His Word Ministries
Prayers That Heal the Heart is a foundational healing resource which I heartily recommend. As a veteran of inner healing, as a recipient, a student, a teacher and now a trainer of prayer ministers, one of the most important concepts in heart healing is that healing doesn’t happen outside of relationship. Prayers That Heal the Heart makes that clear. Learning to receive and experience God’s love as a right hemisphere brain experience is not only necessary, but vital for true healing to occur. Dr. Virkler lays out simple but powerful tools which guide people into transformational encounters with the tangible love of God. When done in partnership with a praying friend or guide, the process carries even greater effectiveness. I appreciate this teaching and highly recommend it to anyone desiring to receive healing for themselves or help others.

“A very practical guide to how the keys to healing that are contained within Scripture can be applied with great effect in the life of a believer.”
International Director of Ellel Ministries, England
“Dr. Mark Virkler’s Prayers That Heal the Heart deals in a comprehensive way with the prisons we find in our minds and hearts—prisons of repetitive sin, self-hatred, traumas and pain that seem never to go away, and demonic oppression and attacks. Many Christian leaders are still carrying wounds that only Jesus can heal, and these wounds become destructive time-bombs that Satan sets off to destroy leaders at the peak of their fruitfulness for God’s Kingdom. Prayers That Heal the Heart effectively helps to defuse these silent time-bombs by letting the Holy Spirit pinpoint the lies that need to be exposed and the memories that need to be healed. This book will show you how Jesus still heals the brokenhearted and sets the captive free.”

Testimonies of healed hearts and transformed lives
Delivered of demons while watching a Prayers That Heal the Heart DVD
“I have just finished watching the last DVD for the Prayers That Heal the Heart course, the DVD on the Model Healing Prayer Session where you minister to Heidi. As background to my testimony, I need to let you know that I have had an issue with fear of abandonment. While I’ve gone through deliverance for several demons, the problem I’ve had with the fear of abandonment was not, to my knowledge, ever addressed head-on.
“Well, as you prayed for Heidi, I was thinking about how much I identified with her pain and how much compassion I had for her. Then suddenly, I began to cough very forcefully and almost to gag. I knew instantly that a spirit of the fear of abandonment had come out of me! I had to write to tell you that, even though you were not personally ministering to me, that demon of the fear of abandonment had to obey the Name of Jesus. Glory to God!”
After years of struggle…“amazing” results within days
“Thank you so much for your teaching and ministry. I’ve been a Christian for 25 years and I’m pretty well read. I’ve been struggling for many years with a terrible wound in my heart which has dominated my life. Like you, I was able to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit but was dogged by fears and dominated by traumatic pictures.
“I’ve read many, many books on curses, healing and deliverance and whilst I’ve had…demons cast out, the key root issues didn’t seem to be dealt with. After only a couple of days with your teaching, I have found amazing healing through the prayers, and in particular using vision to re-visit traumatic experiences of the past and see Jesus begin healing my wounded heart.”
Paul Mortimer in England
How much time should I invest in creating a healed heart?
The Bible is clear that out of the heart flow the issues of life (Prov. 4:23), and what I believe in my heart determines what I experience and receive in life (Matt. 9:29). Therefore, healing my heart is not a luxury, but a necessity.
I spent several weeks deepening the seven prayers that I experienced in my original three-hour prayer ministry session. During the months that followed, I meditated upon Scriptures which rebuilt the walls in my heart and my mind. I chose to believe and walk in God’s truth and not demonic lies. I chose not to suck the demons back and end up in a worse condition than where I began. I spent the second half of that year writing the book Prayers That Heal the Heart so that others could understand and walk through these seven prayers effectively, and then be properly trained to do their own Bible meditations to seal up the walls of their heart and mind and maintain their victories.
The result is that my heart is free and has remained free for the last decade and a half. I now live in faith, hope and love in a world, and church, that is most generally not full of any of these three things. How much is that worth?

Don’t you think it’s time YOU team up and focus with a coach at your side so you speed forward and enter your Promised Land?
There is no easier way to grow than to get into a group of like-minded people, and focus intently for three months, under the direction of the Holy Spirit and a coach who is ahead of you in the area you are pursuing. A cord of three is not quickly broken. You support one another through the training process and by “focusing intently” you become a doer of the word and not a hearer only (Jas. 1:25). Now life is cooking and you are moving forward to experience your promised land. No-one wants to die in their wilderness so make sure you are taking the proper steps which will allow you to occupy your promised land!
This is your chance to finally experience complete emotional wholeness and divine restoration in every corner of your heart. Get off that treadmill of coping with the same issues day after day, year after year, with no end in sight. God will heal your heart through these seven prayers, being used in synergy. There is no need to walk around half-healed or unhealed. Experience all seven prayers and follow them up with a thorough Bible Meditation and heal one heart wound. If you have more than one heart wound (as I did), then repeat the entire process for each additional heart wound. Isn’t being fully alive and healed up worth this amount of time? Ask yourself (or better yet, ask the Lord) “How many of the seven prayers, and how thorough a Bible Meditation should I do to guarantee that I walk clean and pure with an impassioned, free heart?” Pursue full healing today!
