pray9Lord, please help me. I thank you, first, for showing me who I am; the good, the bad, and the ugly. I thank you for Who you are. You are God alone. I am not. I am so grateful for the mistakes I make, for the hard lessons I have to learn, for the pain that is in this offering.

Thank you, Lord, for the beautiful people who you placed in my life to surround me and have my back, those who love and support me. I have some things I need to work on…in me. I am so tired of the same old song and dance and You are the ONLY ONE who can help me.

Change me, Lord. Mold me. Shape me into who I am to be in Christ.

pray6Nahum 1:12-13 – 12 This is what the Lord says:

Although they have allies and are numerous,
they will be destroyed and pass away.
Although I have afflicted you, Judah,
I will afflict you no more.
13 Now I will break their yoke from your neck
and tear your shackles away.”

prayer4Satan, the Lord rebuke you. You have no authority over my life because everything I say, do, and feel belongs to Christ Jesus alone. A storm may be moving through my valley, but it is producing a radiance inside of me that will harvest the fruits of God’s spirit. Acceptance, approval addiction, fear, insecurity, doubt, paranoia, jealousy, and thinking more highly of myself than I ought must FLEE at the name of Jesus. I cast down every stronghold and imagination that is bringing itself against me and I loose myself to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Power is in confession, so help me to get out the wrecking ball and punch holes in walls rebuilt from bricks of the past on new foundation that don’t belong. I want the light to shine through. Lord, please continue to show me who I am and allow me to grow in your likeness. AMEN.

To further your reading, consider this from:

Isaiah 58:6- “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?

God wants our service to go beyond personal growth to acts of kindness and charity and love. But we still must have faith in Christ because deeds alone will not save us. We are not to be burdened by a yoke of slavery.
