Cleansing Declaration
by Peggy Jo Stanley

    Little Pj let God gently and lovingly removed the filth from your body.  Let God’s tears began pouring over your fragile, wounded body.

    Let God wash your hair with His shampoo of grace, running His fingers through your tangled hair, massaging your scalp, cleansing each strand.  Hear God as He softly whispers in your ear, “I cleanse you from all the ways you were defiled through your mind; breaking the curses spoken verbally and non-verbally; breaking the lies you were told; breaking the lies you believed.  I cleanse your thoughts; bringing new thoughts of how I value you, of hope, of love.  Let your mind be filled with My Mind.”

    Let God take a washcloth and carefully wash your face.  As He is washing around your lips, listen to Him say, “I cleanse these lips from the places you had to place them, from the places they weren’t made to go.  I cleanse them from the ways in which they were defiled.  I place within your lips a new song, praises from on high.”

    Let God wash your weeping eyes with His tears of love and compassion. Listen as God speaks, “I wash your pretty, eyes, cleansing them from the things they never should have seen.  I remove the defilement which came through the eye-gate, the defilement which blinded you from My truth.  May you see through My eyes how precious, valuable, and loveable you are.  May you see truth and be set free.”

    Let God move from your eyes to your ears, gently scrubbing each one.  Cleansing them from the harmful, hurtful, demeaning words said to you throughout the years; words, which brought death instead of life.  Cleansing the curses and lies spoken from generation to generation.  Cleansing the ears from each way they had been defiled.  Cleansing them from the sounds, you never should have had to hear.  May you hear Gods voice; His voice of truth, comfort, and love.  May your ears ring with voices of praise, kindness, mercy, approval, acceptance, and love; replacing the lies with truth.

    Let God move to your nose next.  Let God speak cleansing into your nostrils, bringing back the life He breathed into them at your creation; cleansing them from all defilement, which entered through smell.  The stench of life dissipating, as a new aroma, the sweet fragrance of the Lord, fills the room.

    Let God wash over your whole face saying, “I am the lifter of your head.  No longer does your face need to hide in shame.  No longer do you need to hold your head down, not being able to look people in the eyes.  No more shame.  It wasn’t your fault.  It isn’t your fault.  I lift up your countenance.”

    Let God take His big, strong hands and wash your shoulders.  As He is scrubbing, listen to His words being spoken over you, “I remove the burdens from your shoulders.  You have been carrying a heavy load, which was never yours to carry.  Your shoulders weren’t made for such a task.  I lift these burdens and place them on My shoulders.”

    Let God take each arm enabling you to embrace life and all the good it holds.

    Feel God take each hand as He places them into His; tenderly taking each finger, purifying it, saying, “I cleanse these precious hands and fingers.  I cleanse them from the defilement place on them by others.  I cleanse them from the things they had to touch, things they never were created to touch.  I cleanse them from places they had to go, but didn’t want to and from things they had to do.  I wash them with My love and forgiveness, cleansing them from all impurities.  Your hands are clean.  May you lift them in praise.  May you grab onto life, abundant life.  May you stretch forth your hands, touching My children, bringing healing and wholeness.

    Let your Heavenly Father with grace and love, wash your breasts, breaking curses, ways in which they have been defiled; praying for healing, healing of your mother heart and nurturing spirit; bringing nurturing into your wounded spirit so you may bring nurturing to yourself and others.  Let God pray for your femininity to be restored.  “I have created you female”, says Father God.  “I am glad you are a loving, feminine, girl.  You are beautiful.”

    Let God compassionately wash your torso next. Hear the compassion in His voice as He says, “I bring healing into your inner most bowels.  This place which feels, and carries so much pain and loneliness.  I bring restoration, healing, and nourishment to your barren soul and famished body.  I place deep within you, a hunger for Me, for righteousness, for life.  I bring peace.”

    Let God move from your abdomen to your legs. Enabling you to run, and climb, into the lap of your Heavenly Daddy.

    Let God’s cleansing prayer proclaim healing over your feet to break any defilement from the places you had to walk, places God never intended for you to walk – where you walked through this life with so much pain and suffering, which brought weariness to your soul and fatigue to your body, even a desire to walk no more.  God proclaims for the spring of life to be put back into your walk.

    Let God go to this last place, the most difficult one.  Let God take His tender, loving hands and gingerly wash your private parts, bringing cleansing, restoration, and wholeness.  Listen to God as He tenderly speaks, “I break all the ways you were defiled in this area.  I cleanse and purify you from the things, which were done to you, the things that were put inside you that never should have been.  I break all the curses and lies.  I restore your femininity.  I wash you white as snow.  I bring back your innocence.  I bring healing throughout your inner most parts.  You are clean.  Let no man call you impure, for I have made you clean.”

    See the soap suds (filled with all the filthiness, hurt, and pain) as they are washed from your body via the healing, steaming flow of God’s tears.  See these tears spewing forth from God’s heart, a heart filled with compassion, mercy, and love.  Watch as they swirled around the drain, eventually to disappear forever.

    Let God wrap you in His towel of forgiveness, woven with strands of grace and mercy.  Let God Embrace you with His loving arms.  Holding you close saying …

    “Your flesh has been restored to you, like the flesh of a little child, and you are clean.”  (2 Kings 5:10, 14b, NIV)

    “You are pure and without sin; you are clean and free from guilt.”  (Job 33:9, NIV)

    “You are pure, without transgression; you are innocent and there is no guilt in you.”  (Job 33:9, NASB)

    “I have washed you, cleansed you from this guilt.  You are pure again.”  (Ps. 51:2, TLB)

    “I have created in you a new, clean heart.  I have filled you with clean thoughts and right desires.”  (Ps. 51:10, TLB)

    “I have sprinkled clean water on you, and you are clean; I have cleansed you from all your impurities and from all your idols.  I have given you a new heart and have put a new spirit in you: I have removed your heart of stone and given you a heart of flesh.”  (Ezekiel 36:25-26, NIV)

    Let Father God robe you in Jesus’ robe of righteousness.  Curl up in His lap, snuggle close to His heart.  Hear God’s melodious voice sing this song over you.

     I look at you, lying there, in perfect innocence.
I kiss your check and brush your hair with the palm of my hand.
Seeing you, believing you are a gift straight from heaven.
Knowing you’re part of His perfect plan.

     And I know He will hold you, safely enfold you
While His angels, watching, keep you from harm
‘Til the light of the morning shines through your window
You will find rest in your Father’s arms.

     Holding you in my arms, feeling your heart beat
Seeing you, fast asleep, helps me understand
How He must feel when He sees you in my keeping
A gift that He lovingly place in my hands.

     And I know He will hold you, safely enfold you
While His angels, watching, keep you from harm
‘Til the light of the morning shines through your window
You will find rest in your Father’s arms.
