I am not trying to tell or persuade you to buy all of these books, but if you were deciding to start a small spiritual library these books would be highly beneficial. All of these books can be purchased at www.Christianbook.com, www.twft.org, www.intouch.org, and www.estudysource.com


Some of these books can be downloaded for free and downloaded at a cheaper price by way of E-Sword.net which is a Bible Application that can be used on your computer or on an iPad. The iPad version is 5$ but it is well worth the money considering all of the free commentaries, dictionaries, maps, etc. etc. I owe a lot of my spiritual growth to the books list and E-Sword's powerful Ministry.

RESOURCES TO HELP HEALING OF CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE, MOLESTATION AND RAPE


I was sexually abused when I was younger, so if you need prayer, submit your prayer request and if you need someone to talk too I am here for you.   In the meantime check out some of these books and workbooks. God will help you heal step by step. Remember, although it was terrible, God can and will use it for good. He promised "all things (good and bad) work together for good" for the Christian believer. (Romans 8:28) Never forget, Jesus loves you and He will produce healing step by step and I am here for you if you ever need to talk to someone about it in confidence. Some of these books were written by Pastors and some are not Christian based but they are all beneficial to your healing.  Never forget to add the Bible into the mix. The best one thus far for me personally was "The Wounded Heart" by Dr. Dan B. Allender  and the Work Book for it.  Remember to read these at a pace, not all at once.  Again, if you need someone to talk too, I am here for you. Here is a prayer for you:

Father in Jesus Name I come to You asking You to heal me from my abuse and help me to pick up the right resources and books to help me grow in the healing. Father, I pray that You help me to forgive those who did this to me and let them come to salvation through Jesus Christ as well. Lord, work on me and show me what areas you are working on and help me go from a survivor to a victorious Christian and use this event or the events for Your glory and my good. Father, please deliver and free me from any habits/addictions I have picked up in the process of living with this deep hurt and find someone to talk to about it so I can finally break the silence and when the process starts protect me spiritually so I can continue to learn about You. Work in me Holy Spirit. Please Lord, help me. I ask this all in Jesus Name. Amen.


RESOURCES FOR THOSE WHO ARE WITH A PARTNER, FRIEND, MATE WHO HAS BEEN ABUSED SEXUALLY OR PHYSICALLY

If you are with someone relationally from family to marriage who was abused I suggest reading these books and gaining a better understanding of what the abuse could do. If you are a Pastor or in Ministry I suggest the same things.  God will work through you to heal them, but learn about it as well.  My prayer for you: 

Father in Jesus Name, I ask that You use me to bring and produce healing in the life of the person or people I know who have been abused in the past or present. Lord, let me be part of Your healing hands and increase my knowledge of this and let me have strong discernment and wisdom on what to say and when to stop talking and just listen. I thank You in advance for allowing me to benefit people who are in need of help, even if they don't know it. Lord, don't let me be forceful or give up but by faith walk with them and understand some effects could still be there and have the grace to overlook that by Your Spirit and love. Lord, please use me and Holy Spirit make me aware of what to do to help, even if it is to just listen. Help me be grace-filled knowing You showed and have done the same for me as well in Jesus Name. Amen.
