Shattered: Praying with PTSD

You’ve read about my experiences praying with PTSD in other posts, such as “The Discipline of Weeping” and “Return to Your First Love: On Heart Prayer.” If you’ve spoken with me in person, I probably talked about the way God heals us sidealong. It’s time that I start talking more about the hands-on ways that God has helped me heal from extensive childhood trauma. For that I’ve created a new series in my just-launched video podcast, Some Myrrh. It’s called, “The P is for Prayer,” and you can watch or listen to the first episode now. This one is for anyone who has ever felt “Shattered.”

  1. Beautifully spoken Summer. Fantastic idea as we can all heal in this way of seeing our traumas along with the power of prayer and truly opening our hearts and souls to the Lord. I would love to be added to your whole series. I believe this could definitely help a couple of shattered young ladies we know and love! ❤️🙏🏼

  2. Dear Summer,
    Your words & encouragement & especially the way of engaging all of our senses to pray is really helping me.
    It is a little overwhelming because I have learnt from a very young child to dissociate from my body without even realising I’m doing it! I’m very much looking forward to your next instalment of praying with ptsd. My husband has quadriplegia too so your truly beautiful book on disability is helping us both too.
    I carry an icon of Christ with me a lot around the house so He can look upon me even if I cannot yet fully believe I was created by Him & for Him & my whole self has some elements of holiness that can eventually cover the shame, pain and self hatred that was instilled in me.
    You are a spiritual mother to me & I remember you in my prayers everyday.
    You have reached us in Tasmania Australia, Glory to God.
    With love in Christ Emma ( Emmanuella) ☦️♥️
