When I was about twenty-five years old, I got together with a good friend and prayed through a spiritual inventory aimed at breaking strongholds in your life. We went through my life history, and I dealt with a lot of things through prayer. The process took a few hours, and involved confession, repentance, forgiveness (as in, people I needed to forgive, once and for all, going as far back as elementary school!), and more.

A similar document to the one we used is here. If you’ve never done anything like this, I’d encourage you to go through it and use it as a tool for spiritual growth. Everything on it won’t be relevant to every person, but much of it could be helpful.
In this podcast, I also reference a book by John Piper that I highly recommend: When I Don’t Desire God, in which Dr. Piper shares a model of prayer called IOUS, based on four verses from the psalms. A free PDF download of the book is available from Desiring God’s web site.
