Prayer for Autism

This is an audio file of a prayer for autism and also a discussion about autistic and special needs children and their parents.

To give some context, we had a five hour prayer session where the topic was not related to special needs but at the very end when we got to the praise reports someone gave testimony about an autistic 12 year old and this turned the conversation in that direction.

Don’t worry we are not going to force you  to listen to 5 hours!

This is significant because a mother of an autistic boy contacted us just 3 days prior asking for prayer.  We prayed for her and thought this was enough.  However, when the Holy Spirit brought up the subject again to this prayer group it was evident that God was taking out His highlighter and highlighting this subject as something that is currently on His heart and mind.

We feel He is ready to perform miracles in this area.  Major breakthrough for many.  We also feel that God is calling His church to be more compassionate to people – mothers, fathers, grand parents, brother and sisters – who have someone with autism or special needs in their family.

The audio file is only the portion that shares the testimony, a prayer for autism and special needs and the discussion that followed on how the church should respond.  It is 33 minutes long.

You can listen to the prayer and discussion or you can read the transcript of only the prayer below.

If you don’t have an autistic or special needs child, you should still listen to this because your response and reaction when you are around someone with special needs is important.

If you are a parent, family member of friend of someone with autism or other special needs please leave the information in the comments and we will pray for them.

Prayer for Autism and Special Needs

Father God,  we just thank you for children who are facing autism and experiencing sensory overload.  We also pray for those who have special needs, children and adults,  who may have other things going on in their bodies and mind that they’re not able to control. They are in your hands and you see them, Oh God.

We come against the enemy and any spirit that will want to overwhelm them, in the name of Jesus. We pray for freedom in their spirits to be who you called them to be.  We pray for healing in their bodies, mind, soul and spirit. Where there’s any deficiencies that you make up the deficiency Father God that you fill them up Lord God with your healing virtue. We thank you that by Jesus’ stripes they are healed.

We call out any spirit of infirmity or sickness or weakness in their bodies and even this spirit of delay, in the name of Jesus.  We sent it back to dry places from whence it came.  Even

the challenges that they are having in this world, Lord, we pray You make every crooked road straight, in the name of Jesus.  We declare healing over our children with challenges.  We pray Lord God that the body of Christ would accept and embrace our children the way You accept and embrace our children. Our love is truly on trial – can we love those who maybe don’t fit the framework of what we think people should be?  Help us Lord God to see people as people and to love them with the heart and the compassion that Jesus Christ has for us.

Father, we thank you that even that our children and adults with special needs are still be useful in the kingdom.  We thank you Father God that for your word that says train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it. We pray that their giftings would come forth, in the name of Jesus.

We pray that the body of Christ would recognize that where there is a deficiency You make up the gap in other areas.  Thank you for their superior intelligence and the true gift that they are from you – a gift to this world.  Thank you, Oh God, for their enhanced ability to love us even when Your people don’t show the love of Christ towards them and acceptance towards them. Cover them Lord and shelter them from rejection and fear.

Lord God, in the name of Jesus, encourage and strengthened the hearts and minds of the parents and care givers that are raising children that are having challenges, whatever they may be.  Father we pray that you give them wisdom on how to raise these children that are truly a gift from God .  Give them the wherewithal and whatever is needed to raise your children to bring out the best in these children so that they will be able to fulfill your purpose for their life.

We ask, Lord God, that Your body will see these children with eyes of love, eyes of caring,  eyes of patience and develop us in the fruit of the Spirit.  Help us to examine our own fruit and prune us so that we will bear much more fruit.

Father we abide, remain, habitate in your vine, in the name of Jesus Christ we pray.

Here are some bible verses for autism
(Psalm 139:14) “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know thatprayer for autism full well.”

(Proverbs 22:6) “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”

(Psalm 103:17) “But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children”

God Bless You!
