Healing centres are beginning to emerge across the country, since the Healing Foundation was established, and Florence says this is because many survivors want a culturally safe space to be able to access and receive healing. Consequently, many survivors do not access much of the non-government organisations, emotional and social well-being programs, or government programs. Florence is also the chair of the Healing Foundation's Stolen Generations Reference Committee who guided the work of the Stolen Generations ensuring their programs meet the unique healing needs of survivors and their families.
The corporation has been in operation since and has reunited the Kinchela Boys through their painful memories but also their quest for justice, acknowledgement and healing. Today, KBHAC works with partner organisations to identify major issues of health and well-being for its members arising from removal and institutionalisation. The fear that was there is not there anymore. Established in , the Healing Foundation partners with communities around the country addressing the ongoing trauma caused by actions of forced removal.
It was set up in the wake of the National Apology to the Stolen Generations in and was just one a few recommendations that has been implemented since the landmark Bringing Them Home report.
In the past decade, the Foundation has seen more than 70 per cent of Stolen Generations members participate in projects reporting an improved ability to care for their grief and nearly 80 per cent reporting an increased sense of belonging and connection to culture. While Michael and Florence are doing the best they can to help ease the pain of their families and communities, they just hope the government listens to their solutions.

Uncle Murray shares his heartfelt story about being stolen more than 70 years ago, yet a decade on from the National Apology and the amount of Indigenous children still being taken from their families remains alarmingly high. Your heartfelt passion and intense desire for the recovery of your daughter may be the thing that will get God to want to move as a Man of War on this type of extreme situation.
One of the things I have learned about the Lord on my own personal journey with Him is that He does have flair for the dramatic and that He does bleed and weep when He sees these kinds of extreme situations occurring in our fallen world. Again, study the above battle verses very carefully, along with the above story from King David.
If God moved for King David to recover every single man, woman, and child that was stolen from him by the evil Amalekites, then God can do the exact same thing for any of you since He is no respecter of persons and He is the same today as He was yesterday. In other words, if God moved to help King David recover all that He lost in the above story back in the Old Testament, then God can do the exact same thing for any of us in this current day and age.
Our God is still a mighty God of miracles and He can be moved to want to answer our prayers, no matter now dire and how hopeless the situation may appear to us in the natural. And the key to getting God to want to move on these types of extreme situations is intense and heartfelt type battle prayers, taking hold of God in a way that you may have never done before.
I will now end this article with one last bit of advice. With the kind of pure evil that seems to keep getting stronger and growing wider across both our country and the rest of the world, you never know when you will wake up and find yourself having to confront this kind of extreme adversity. These kinds of events can happen to anyone at anytime. To all of you who are still raising your children up, what I would highly recommend that you do is to plead the blood of Jesus on your children as a protective covering on some type of regular basis.
I would recommend that you do it at least once per month, most preferably on the first day of each month. Again, here is a sample type of prayer that you can do to get your child fully covered under the blood of Jesus so as to protect them from the evil predators who are still roaming in our streets and our own backyards:. I now plead the blood of Jesus over every inch of her body, over every inch of her soul, and over every inch of her spirit. I now plead the blood of Jesus against any demonic spirits who may want to try and come against her.
I now plead the blood of Jesus against any bad and evil people who may want to try and harm her in any way. I now plead the blood of Jesus against any natural catastrophes that could possibly come her way. Father, in the name of Jesus, I now ask that You perfectly protect this child as she journeys through this life so she can fully accomplish everything that You would like for her to do for You.
For the record, we keep getting more and more reports from people all around the world who are getting delivered off the information we have in our Spiritual Warfare section. Our God is a mighty Man of War and He will go into battle for you if you will just learn how to apply some of the basics in this area of our walk with Him.
Thank you Lord I have been sleeping then God has shown me that there is theft in my home up on my wife and property. I have opened the above spiritual warfare and I know God will restore each and everything. He will judge the convict accordingly. Thank you for the inspirational article.
I also need the Lord to fight for my son Courage to get his job back. He needs a second chance but seems something is blocking the opportunity. Management promised to discuss the issue but no word from them till now. He lost the job due to mistakes he made and sincerely asking for forgiveness from the Lord and Managers.
The Prayer references is fantastic and inspirational. May your anointing never run dry in Jesus Name. The story in reference is challenging. May the Lord give us the grace to summons the courage to fight for our right and get it back from devil without fail. A fraudster took thousands from me through my bank, these scriptures have touched my heart and I feel like a winner, The mighty God of war will punish him and restore to me everything as he did to King David.
Evil never wins. God, go and fight for me as am helpless, lead the authorities that your people have selected to catch up with him, and let him be punished by you God, let him be ashamed and give his life to Christ, for your kingdom is not for such people. Only armed with faith all will be returned in Christ our Lord. Amen and Amen. Thank you so much for these power parked prayers. I believe that our God is mighty to save and He will surely restore all that the enemy has stolen from us!
May the Almighty God increase the anointing on your life as bring hope into our lives. God richly bless you always!!!

The Battle Verses When dealing with this kind of extreme adversity, you are going to need some very strong battle verses from the Bible. These first two verses will tell us two very powerful things about God the Father: They will tell us that God the Father is a Man of War and that He does have a war side to his personality. And then they will go one step further — they will then tell us that we can actually stir up God the Father to go into battle for us as a Man of War. The Battle Prayer For those of you who have never formed out this kind of a special battle prayer to deal with this kind of extreme adversity, below is a sample type battle prayer you can draw up to go to the Lord with.
Here is the sample battle prayer: 1. Father, In the name of Jesus Christ, I now approach Your throne of grace boldly and with full confidence that You will hear my very special prayer to You. And in the greatness of Your excellence you have overthrown those who rose against You; You sent forth Your wrath which consumed them like stubble.
He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies. Father, I now want to quote some additional battle verses back to You. He will destroy them and bring them down before you; so you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as the Lord has said to you. He also prepares for Himself instruments of death; He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.
For by strength no man shall prevail. The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken in pieces; from heaven He will thunder against them.
Tablet of Destinies (mythic item)
The Lord will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength to His king, and exalt the horn of His anointed. You shall seek them and not find them — those who contend with you. Those who war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved. He guards all of his bones; not one of them is broken. And the Lord shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him.
For I will not trust in my bow, nor shall my sword save me. But You have saved us from our enemies, and have put to shame those who hated us. In God we boast all day long, and praise Your name forever.
