Description : Robert C. Vallieres struggled to find his ônew normalö when he returned home after serving in the military. An accident in Kuwait left him suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI) internal injuries, leaving him in constant pain. After clinics, bottles of painkillers, and behavior modification pills, hope seemed to vanish. Then a local weekly newspaper ad caught his eye: a bird-watching trip to see raptors in the mountains of New Hampshire. An Emily Dickinson poem that states, ôHope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tuneùwithout the words, and never stops at all,ö sprang to his mind. Wounded Warriors is VallieresÆs story of self-healing from crippling ôinvisibleö wounds through the help of birds. The problems of TBI and post-traumatic stress disorder do not have definitive solutions. His story of recovery offers a winged hope to thousands of military personnel who suffer these physical and mental battles.

Description : I pray that you have been encouraged to get back into the race for the battle for righteousness. I pray that you get wisdom and understanding to what caused your wounds. If you do not know what caused them you will not know how to pray effectively to get specific result that you are praying to accomplish. Ask yourself these three questions: number one - were your wounds self-affected by being disobedient to HIS Word? Number two - were your wounds caused by trials and tribulation through the testing of your faith? Number three - were they caused by attacks from Satan and his demons? If you know the wounds were self-affected by acts of disobedience then pray for forgiveness and receive HIS mercy and grace (Psalm 103:3). If it is by trials and the testing of your faith then pray for strength and rebuke fear out of your life and be encouraged by HIS every Word (1 Corinthians 16:13). If they are by attacks of Satan and his demons then rebuke them and bind them by speaking the Word of GOD with boldness and authority in JESUS name (Ephesians 6:10-18). Always be on guard and never let your guard down by keeping on your spiritual armor at all times. Take appropriate responses to the wounds you have received by being a prepared people in GOD’s Word on this earth. We must transform our lives to GOD’s Holy Will. We must have a prescribed rule of conduct or action toward our everyday living. Know that whatever causes your wounds, no matter how deep it may be, it should never replace the love of GOD in your heart. HE knows what you are going through and HE knows how to fix it! Now pray this prayer: Dear Heavenly Father please forgive me for not trusting in You and doubting Your love for me. Renew my spirit Lord with the Spirit of Wisdom that I may get understanding. Lord give me a hunger and a thirst after Your righteousness and may I always be aware of Your presence with fear and humbleness. I will confess now: I’m fearless, strong and fully persuaded in my faith. I’m an Ultimate Warrior here on this earth for the Kingdom of GOD in JESUS name.
