A Way of Transformation for the TG [Transgender] Person
(This assumes you are working with someone who has repented of sin, believed in & surrendered their life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.)
1. Address any childhood sexual abuse or other trauma that may have confused the child’s sense of identity, being and/or sexuality.
2. Correct gender-based misinformation by parents, significant others and/or the culture (as well as any other lies of the enemy that they may have believed).
Parents or other family members may have wanted their child to be the opposite sex and either communicated that to him/her outright or more subtly in the ways they gave or withheld affirmation & acceptance when he/she acted like a boy/girl.
Pray for inner healing for any father-wounds and mother-wounds. Teach them how to be intimate with God the Father as a replacement for a male-hating mother or a female hating father.
Deal with any “sins of the father” that may have been passed down (Ex 20:5-6; 34:7; Lev 26:39; Numbers 14:18; Deuteronomy 7:9; Ezekiel 18:14-20) / Generational Curses / Anger at God / Roots of Bitterness & Rejection / Inner Vows / Un-forgiveness / Occult Activity.
Pray for any peer humiliation that they experienced, (especially related to a rejection of gender), to be reversed by the acceptance of Christ & His Body, the Church.
Pray to renounce the rejection of their biological sex and/or the self-hatred that it induced.
Pray with them to accept their biological gender.
Repent of any use of pornography and masturbation and the core sin behind such behaviors — Idolatry.
Pray for revelation of and deliverance from any hidden demonic strongholds.
Pray for any yet undiscovered biological contributors (-e.g., hormones, brain chemistry, etc.) to be healed.
Pray for being washed (Ephesians 5:26; 1 Corinthians 6:11) and having the mind renewed (Romans 12:2) with the Word of God.
3. Overturn any contributing cultural factors
If they grew up lonely & un-affirmed, yet were accepted and celebrated by the transcommunity (not having understood that their acceptance had more to do with their youth & beauty than anything else), pray that they learn to receive that needed acceptance & affirmation from God instead of man.
Help them to separate themselves from damaging relationships, (friends, music, media, etc.) and to turn their attention to God’s Word and serving Him.
Will you be a transforming agent to your brothers and sisters who are struggling with sexual identity?
