The mind, the will and the emotions are included in the soul. Heal the soul and the mind should also be healed.
A dear friend was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. I went to the Bible to see what God's word says. When I began my research, the Bible verses were not making much sense to me so I asked the Lord to explain them to me. The Holy Spirit answered me so emphatically that I am going to tell you the answer first and then explain what I found in the Bible.
AN ANSWER TO ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE.
To cure Alzheimer's Disease someone who loves the patient should read to him/her the 23rd Psalm out loud and in full each day. For better results the person reading the Psalm should be a loving Christian. I do not know how long it will take for improvement to be seen. It will vary with each patient. I tried it on one patient. The last report that I received was that her mind seemed sharp.
The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no evil. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over. Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Dear God, in the Name of Jesus, I ask you to restore the soul of my loved one. Thank you Lord. Amen.
When I asked the Lord about Alzheimer's disease, the response was loud and clear. I did not ask about other forms of dementia or about the effects of stroke. However, the 23rd Psalm should work in these cases.
Paul says (Philippians 2:5) that as Christians we should have the mind of Christ. If we have the mind of Christ, then we will not have dementia.
As you read through Proverbs and Psalms, you see that if the mind, the will and/or the subconscious are stricken, you need to heal the soul. Scriptures that refer to restoring or completing the soul should be effective in combating Alzheimer's disease.
The Scriptures that I found have been organized into 6 categories: Hope, Promise, Commands, Prayer, Thanksgiving, and Praise. You need to hope in the Lord and claim his promises for what he has promised he is also able to perform. Romans 4:18-21. You need to pray in expectation that the Lord will hear and
answer your prayers, 1 John 5:14-15. Be careful for nothing; but every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God which passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7.
I have listed the verses that I found and have offered some additional prayers and comments.
Have mercy on me, Oh Lord. For I am in trouble.
Mine eye is consumed with grief yea my soul and my belly.
The eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy to deliver their soul from death and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the Lord: He is our help and our shield.
As for me, I will call upon the God and the Lord shall save me.
Our help is in the name of the Lord who made heaven and earth.
But the Lord is my defense; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
But I trusted in thee, Oh Lord. I said you are my God.
For you have delivered my soul from death: will you not deliver my feet from falling that I may walk before God in the light of the living.
Dear God, you have known my soul in adversity.
Truly my soul waits upon God: from him comes my salvation.
Why are you cast down, oh my soul? and why are you disquieted within me? Oh my soul hope in God: for I shall yet praise Him who is the health of my countenance and my God.
Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble and He delivered them out of their distresses.
As for me, I will call upon the God and the Lord shall save me.
Psalms 19:7 NIV
The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul.
1 Kings 1:29
The Lord has redeemed my soul out of all distress.
God will deliver his soul from going into the pit and his life shall see the light.
The Lord shall preserve me from all evil: he shall preserve my soul.
For he satisfies the longing soul and fills the hungry soul with goodness.
Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear and your soul shall live.
One way to incline your ear is to study the Bible.
The Lord redeems the soul of his servants.
Isaiah 54:15 NIV
If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing; whoever attacks you will surrender to you,.
Command the enemies that would cause Alzheimer's disease to surrender. Command that they bow their knee to the name of Jesus. Philippians 2:10 . Then bind them Matthew 16:19 and cast them out. Mark 16:17.
His soul shall dwell at ease.
For I have satiated the weary soul and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.
2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
1 Corinthians 2:16
We have the mind of Christ.
The 91st Psalm is referred to as the Protection Psalm. By reading and claiming the promises of this Psalm many report supernatural protection and help in time of need.
He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: My God in him will I trust.
Surely he shall deliver me from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisesome pestilence. He shall cover me with his feathers, and under his wings shall I trust: his truth shall be my shield and buckler. I shall not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day. Nor for the pestilence that
walks in darkness nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday. A thousand shall fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand but it shall not come near me. Only with my eyes shall I see the reward of the wicked.
Because I have made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, my habitation; there shall no evil befall me, neither shall any plague come near my dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over me to keep me in all my ways. They shall bear me up in their hands, lest I dash my foot against a stone. I
shall tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shall I trample under feet.
Because you have set your love upon me, therefore will I deliver you: I will set you on high, because you have known my name. You shall call upon me and I will answer you: I will be with you in trouble; I will deliver you and honor you. With a long life will I satisfy you and show you my salvation.
The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no evil. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil. My cup runs over. Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Be renewed in the spirit of your mind.
Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Transform your mind by reading the new testament.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.
My soul melts for heaviness: Oh Lord, strengthen me according to your word.
Counsel my soul.
I said, Lord, be merciful unto me: Heal my soul...
Return, Oh Lord, deliver my soul: oh save me for your mercies sake.
Quicken me, Oh Lord, for your names sake: for your righteousness sake bring my soul out of trouble.
Of Your mercy cut off mine enemies and destroy all them that afflict my soul for I am your servant.
Then I called upon the name of the Lord; Oh Lord, I beseech you, deliver my soul.
Let my soul live and it shall praise the Lord.
Draw near to my soul, and redeem it.
For you have delivered my soul from death...
For great is Your mercy toward me: and You have delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
Oh Lord You have brought up my soul from the grave: You have kept me alive that I should not go down to the pit.
I will walk before the Lord in the Land of the living.
Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
Return unto your rest oh my soul; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.
My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto You and my soul which You have redeemed.
Bless the Lord, O my soul. Oh my God You are very great; You are clothed with honor and majesty.
And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord. I shall rejoice in his salvation
Bless the Lord all his works in all places of his dominion; Bless the Lord oh my soul.
Psalms 103 1-5
Bless the Lord oh my soul and all that is within me bless his holy name. Bless the Lord oh my soul and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all my iniquities; who heals all my diseases; who redeems my life from destruction; who crowns me with loving kindness and tender mercies; who satisfies my mouth with good things so that my youth is renewed like the eagles.
He has delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me.
Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowler: The snare is broken and we are escaped.
That you may with one mind and one mouth glorify God even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
