Friedreich’s ataxia is an inherited disease that causes progressive damage to the nervous system resulting in symptoms ranging from gait disturbance and speech problems to heart disease. It results from an autosomal recessive inherited mutation of a gene for frataxin, a protein that is essential for proper functioning of mitochondria. The protein is connected with the removal of iron from the cytoplasm surrounding the mitochondria, and in its absence, the iron builds up and causes free radical damage. Nerve and muscle cells appear to be particularly sensitive to the deleterious effects of this type of mitochondrial dysfunction.
Many cases of Friedreich’s ataxia can be traced to one common ancestral couple arriving in New France in 1634: Jean Guyon and Mathurine Robin. Guyon was a master mason.
Dear Heavenly Father,
We stand before You in humility and lift up ____, who suffers from Friedreich’s ataxia. We don’t understand the corruption of Your good and perfect creation, or the origins of this genetic curse. However, Your Son Jesus manifested Your heart for healing when He walked the earth, and He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
When Your prophet Elisha cast a branch into the Jordan River, the sunken axhead floated. We apply the cross of Jesus into the cytoplasm of ____’s cells. If Elisha’s branch in the Jordan River can make the axhead float, then the cross of Christ in her body can remove the iron molecules from around her mitochondria.
The covenant of the Blood of Christ Jesus trumps any false covenant, including all vows that may have corrupted her bloodline. (Name any known false ancestral vows such as Freemasonry.)
May each gene be washed in the Blood of the Lamb (especially FXN on chromosome 9). May each frataxin protein molecule be washed in the Blood of the Lamb. May each mitochondrion be washed in the Blood of the Lamb! May any broken chromosomes and all free radical damage be made whole.
May the neurons of the spinal cord and cerebellum, the myelin sheaths of the neural processes, the skeletal and cardiac muscle cells all be washed in the Blood of the Lamb! A sevenfold washing, Lord!
Healing–that is Your heart’s desire, and that is ours. Healing, Lord. We pray for her healing. Amen.
