I Prayed have prayed
Father, we lift this girl up to You. Strengthen and encourage her, Lord. Hold that family closely in Your arms, and flood them with Your grace.

It appears that Sen. Ted Cruz’s daughter may have tried to harm herself. May God be with their family. Let’s lift them up to the Lord in prayer. The holidays are a time of increased mental health problems. We invite you to download An Advent Prayer for America and/or Interceding for Family to pray for those who are hurting.

From Yahoo News. Police and medical personnel were called to the Texas home of Sen. Ted Cruz Tuesday night after reports of a 14-year-old girl at the property suffering from self-inflicted stab wounds to her arms.

Get involved in state level prayer with IFA.

 

The teen was taken to the hospital shortly after. It’s unclear who the girl was—though Cruz does have two daughters: Catherine, 11, and Caroline, 14.

 

[A] representative for his office said: “This is a family matter, and thankfully their daughter is OK.”

There “were no serious injuries,” the representative said.

“The family requests that the media respect their daughter’s privacy at this time.” …

Father, we pray for Ted Cruz’s daughter. We thank you for embracing her with your love, peace, comfort, and hope. Inspite of what she has been going through, please whisper in her spirit that as she calls out to you, you will be right there for her. Put a desire in her heart to reach out to you. If she hasn’t received Jesus as her Lord and Savior, send someone across her path to introduce Him to her, either in person or through some form of media technology. In Jesus’ name, thank you.

The enemy mus be bound and rebuked from attacking this family. The enemy is using children and the schools are staffed , along with social media , of Baal and Molech worshiping crazies who are sacrificing children to these “gods” on behalf of satan. The enemy will attack the vulnerable to get to the strong. Pray for protection of the Cruz family and all conservative Christians who stand up for this country.

Senator Ted Cruz and family, I just want you to know that I am praying for you and especially for your daughter. I pray that Jesus would manifest himself to you all, He loves you beyond our human comprehension and wants only the best for you. He promises to walk with you, and be by your side, no matter what the circumstance is. He will never leave you or forsake you. I could not go through a single day without that assurance from Jesus that He is with me and will be with me every day of my life. I pray you know that assurance in your life. Love in Jesus name.

Praying for Ted Cruz and his family. We can relate and understand the hardship of a daughter trying to take her life. WE are praying for the love and understanding and support of the body of Christ. That Christ love would envelope this family during this time. That their daughter would come to know how much she is loved by her family and God the Father thru what Jesus has done for all of us on the cross. He died so she could live and live abundantly in Him. He has so many good things in store for her. Most of all she is enough for Him. She doesn’t have to do anything to merrit His love. Her worth is extremely far above anything of natural worth. That she can grasp this love…the most REAL and tangible LOVE one will ever know. One of the most important revelations for all…GOD’S LOVE.❤️ ✝️ ❤️🙏

Abba Father, we lift up Ted Cruz’s 14 year old daughter who was cutting her arms to inflict pain upon herself. This is an act of the enemy and indications of a low self-esteem or something more sinister that may have happened to her and she is acting out. Father. You know all the details and that she is fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image. We ask the Zholy Spirit to flood her mind about her worth and we renounce all lies of the enemy spoken over her by family or friends that she is worthless, causing her to question her value. Enlighten Sr actor Yed Cruz and his wife, her mother, to what she needs and direct their paths to a solid Bible-based counselor who can gently lead her to You.

We speak life and not death over her and claim that she has a great purpose to serve You the rest of her life. Bring her strong Christian friends and Godly mentors whose walk is strong in Jesus to walk beside her as well as a great Youth Pastor and youth group she can become a part of. May Yoir joy fill her life and Your hope for a bright future. Show her Your unconditional love & May she desire to draw close to You.

Father, How our hearts ache for the Cruz family, and we pray for healing for all of them emotionally, physically, and spiritually. We pray for strength for this girl as she faces embarrassment, guilt, and shame due to all the media coverage of her actions, and we ask for her to feel Your love and total forgiveness. Holy Spirit, may You be able to use this incident in her life and the lives of many to see how You can truly make all things work together for good. With You, Lord, nothing is impossible.

FATHER, in the name of Jesus, we ask that you manifest yourself in a very direct and very personal way to Ted Cruz’s daughters in dreams, visions, and encounters with you and your word. The teenage years are difficult in themselves and adding even more stress and challenges to the offspring of famous people. Politicians are both loved and hated by many and it isn’t difficult to see how a teenager can struggle during periods when her famous dad is in the news being hated on by the media. Ted Cruz is the hope of many Christian Americans, in Texas and the entire nation hoping he will run for president some day. His courageous conservative stand often comes under fire by liberals. With the 2022 election in the horizon, he may be considering a run or be the obvious choice of Donald Trump for a running mate and we can certainly see how could affect his teenage daughter as she may be dreading even more limelight and scorn against her father and herself. Father, touch her with your Divine Love, strengthen her, help her to turn herself over to your divine love and car, show her how much her family and you love her, our nation needs her dad, and show her dad how much his daughter needs HIM. Help him balance his work and his family lie with your great wisdom. Bless this family with divine discernment, understanding, and love, protect them and keep them especially the children. the world can seem even more cruel to them being offspring of famous politicians.. IN Jesus name we thank you for hearing and answering our prayers.

Father in heaven, give this earthly father wisdom. Perhaps he needs to step out of the lime light, slow down, especially during this holIday season. Bring people along Caroline’s side who can best encourage, lead and guide to Jesus. For Your honor and glory.
Since Ted is tIn the public eye, this is a family matter. So many parents with teens need the touch of Jesus. No shame or guilt, just help from fellow believers. If you want our vote, keep us in touch and praying for each other. Humility is good for us all. Don5 hide your light. Sorrow needs healing light.

My heart and prayers go out to the girl and her family and friends. I pray that God through His Spirit of truth would reveal the truth that she is His workmanship and is loved by the creator of the universe. I pray that the lies of the enemy are revealed and torn down by the light of Jesus and the truth I also pray that who ever divulged this information to the public would repent of that breach of privacy abd never do so again. I lift up Ted Cruz and his family and that the public focus would be on the good he is doing for his state and country and he would not be distracted from that while still having time to support this girl whether it be a family member or friend of the family.

    How is it wrong to learn that a brother or sister needs help?
    We are told to pray first of all for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead quiet and peaceable lives in all godliness and reverence.
    We all know that, with social media, the prince of the power of the air is all over this situation, broadcasting every negative detail.
    Therefore, the family of God most definitely needs to know about it, so we can stand in the gap for this family.
    And this family needs to know they are surrounded and infilled with God’s unfailing love.
    Rejoice in the Lord always!

Thanking you from Psalm 103:1-5 “Praise the Lord, my soul! All my being, praise His holy name! Praise the Lord, my soul, and do not forget how kind he is. He forgives all my and Caroline’s sins and heals all of our diseases. He keeps us from the grace and blesses us with love and mercy.

Dear Mr. Cruz,
I am so sad to hear about your daughter’s anguish. We have been through a similar scenario this past year with our 16 yo granddaughter. We have spent many hours on our knees in prayer and do so for all children who are struggling with the weightiness of this world. You are not alone in this and I will be praying for healing and deliverance, grace, and peace with my weekly prayer group. May God hold all your hearts and give you hope and peace as you walk through this.
2 Corinthians 1 is my go to chapter in times of trouble. May these words speak to you and your family.

It’s time to be bold: In 1 Peter 5:8 the devil is liken to a roaring Lion seeking whom he may devour. We are Blood bought followers of Jesus, God gave us a voice to use to defeat the darkness and lies of Satan. Our only Hope is in Jesus and the Truth of His words, through Prayer and the Tools of Gods light that was given to shine before others as you give Glory to our Father God. Matthew 5:14, 16. God we present to you the Senator Ted Cruz family that Satan is trying to destroy. I said Trying not going to happen, We are going to fight with Gods words so Jesus can do some healing “ Father, we thank You for Your times and Your seasons. Lord, You see the end game. I thank You, Father, that You have put it on the heart of a company of people, an Army of Believers to rise up during this season of time. We’re going to take back everything the enemy has stolen. We’re going to take back our kids. We’re going to take back our grandkids. We’re going to take back our destiny. We’re going to take back our finances. We’re going to take back peace and joy and vision.
“But, Lord, we’re going to take back our nation from the hands of the enemy. You’re going to break the hold of the conspirators in the spirit – those things that have been sent against us to destroy our children and families. Father we take Authority over the Spirits of Baal who has been a demonized spirit over the Children for years. These spirits have no flesh and blood bodies but they use the Lies of deception to destroy, kill, deceive that Satan gives them. But we have God given authority from Heaven to excel and use this Authority over all beings through the power of Gods words. God has given us many scriptures to defeat the principality of darkness and the attempted advances of the enemy of this administration. “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:10:17. We decree that Baal of darkness has no evil power, authority or rights over our children. Father God I ask you and declare that the blood of Jesus protect these daughters of Ted Cruz as he fights for our Country. I ask in prayer for many to rise up with the words of Jesus over this home and break the chains of deception over this family. I pray that any spirits of evil influences be removed and broken over this home in Jesus name. I ask that a person of God who lives near them will come forward with Gods words to help restore God’s presence in that home so this family will be restored in Jesus name. It’s time the father step out in Faith and prays for His family to establish who he serves. Satan is trying to keep our leaders in bondage concerning their families because they are fighting for America that Satan is trying to be a god over America. Father God you know what is before us and I realize that only you can save us and this battle we are in, we need your wisdom, strength to be poured out over this family and our country . Pour out your love and Grace and forgive us God we have not been in full support of you as many have indulged in sin. Forgive us that we have failed you. Place a deep hunger of your prayers, words to become a part of this family and raise up a battle for righteousness that they will be winners and strong leaders for America. God send healing into these daughters lives as well as The Dad and Mom. I ask Jesus to establish Unity and greater love through this family, remove any guilt on both sides, just allow Gods spirit to be present. I thank you Jesus and honor u once again for your Love. We shall honor the one true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! We shall take American homes back for Jesus. We are not going to give up we are Gods Army. 🧎‍♀️🧎‍♀️🧎‍♀️

Father God, I come to you in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, to boldly petition you to send your warring angels to war on behalf of the Cruz family; and to thwart every attack of the enemy against them. Holy Spirit, make your presence and peace manifest in their home, and in their individual hearts. Father, in the Name of Jesus, we bind that spirit of Baal that has been sent to cause innocent blood to be shed, that he might achieve one more soul dragged to hell. We bind every evil spirit that would try to distract Sen. Cruz from being a loud voice of reason and righteousness in our Senate.
Father, wrap the entire family in your loving presence, and silence every voice of hatred and evil that would be directed toward them. Bring total healing and Shalom to that family. Amen

      Minimal details–just enough so the body of Christ can know the family has a need and go into their pain with them with prayer, support and encouragement. God Himself sets this pattern for us in 2 Corinthians 1:3-7: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our afflictions SO THAT WE WILL BE ABLE to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

May the Peace that surpasses all understanding cover this family. There is no greater weapon than the word of God, So pray Psalm 91 over yourself and family members daily. Father, I plead the blood of Jesus over his daughter and ask for a hedge of protection around her body, mind and spirit. The enemy is liar, and no weapon formed against her or the family shall prosper. In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Father, bring healing and peace to the Cruz family. Wrap your arms around this daughter who is distraught. Send Your angels to minister to her and her family. Lord, give Sen. Cruz supernatural knowledge, wisdom, insight, and the fatherly spirit he most certainly needs at this time.
61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,[a]
2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor.
Amen

I decree Senator that this will turn for your good. For your daughters healing. And that you will all be gathered together by His grace. Love will prevail. Forgiveness and hurts bound up. That there is no condemnation of shame that can bring guilt into play. It’s a confusing world to face as a young adult. May she find the love of Jesus as she heals. May you find the love of our Heavenly Father as you and your wife heal. He does bind up our wounds. I decree no weapon formed against you and yours shall prosper. I cut off every curse spoken against you and render it null and void as it falls to the ground and dies. No more fruit after its kind and a replacement of faith towards God. Combined with loves strength and peace as you go forth with peace and joy into a future of hope.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We come to You in Jesus name, asking for Christmas miracles for Ted Cruz and his family and especially, his daughter. It cannot be easy for Ted Cruz, nor his family . . . as they are undoubtedly on the front lines in this nation trying to prevent the evil plans of unjust persons from coming to pass! Please, especially keep a hedge of protection around him & his family at this most difficult time and always. Help Sen. Ted Cruz to have the daily strength that he needs . . . not only in his life as Senator, but in his personal relationships and most importantly, his relationship with you. Mend any areas in his heart that have been broken. Keep him supernaturally protected from all hurt, harm or danger–or tragedies in the name of Jesus. And we pray a hedge of protection around him and his family and his precious daughter. Let her know that You love her and that she is so very special to you. Help her to remain strong in the midst of her trials and keep her protected from evil we pray in Jesus name, amen!!!

Help us to remember to pray for those few brave leaders in our nation who are standing on solid ground trusting and believing in the God that we love in America . . . Jesus & in His truth and justice for all those who live in America!!! They truly are front-line warriors!!! And we need them, In Jesus name, amen!!

And Lord, please heal the Ted Cruz and his family! Wrap your loving arms around them in Jesus name, amen!

We stand in the gap for them and we rebuke, satan, suicide, depression and anxiety from their lives in Jesus name, and we command the devil to get his hands off of the Cruz family in Jesus name, amen!!! We declare victory over their lives in Jesus name, amen!!!

The Best is yet to come and they have a very bright future over them in Jesus name, amen!!!!
