On Saturday, December 7th, Annunciation BVM’s marriage ministry, Cana’s Vineyard, hosted Meghan Cokeley, the Director of the Office for the New Evangelization for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, to present on The Five Keys to Unbound Prayer for all married couples in the Archdiocese.
The Five Keys to Unbound Prayer are steps in the process of deliverance from sin and lies that have taken root in the soul. The Five Keys are Repentance and Faith, Forgiveness, Renunciation, Authority, and The Father’s Blessing, which walks participants through first acknowledging their faith, forgiving others in the name of Jesus, renouncing any spirits, lies, or curses that are not of God that have taken root in their lives, commanding those spirits leave (always in the name of Jesus), and then embracing the love of the Father through meditating on Scripture.
Meghan’s presentation was a powerful discussion about the ways in which God the Father wants to heal His children, and that, for those of us who seek to forgive those who will not reconcile with us, we can instead accept the better portion: all of the graces that flow from Christ’s Crucifixion. Everyone walked away with a sense that they can, through their openness to God’s grace, be delivered from what has kept them bound for many years.
According to Meghan’s handout, “these prayers can be used when praying with someone else for freedom using the Unbound model, or you can use them when praying alone to work through your own issues and struggles. It is recommended that you pray these prayers out loud whether with someone else or praying alone.
