Prayer for Deliverance
Dear Heavenly Father,
I humbly come before Your throne of Grace. Thank You for my life and for loving me enough to call me Your Child. Thank You for the good plans You have for me. Thank You, Lord God, for accepting me and giving me my identity in Christ. I accept all the plans You have for me.
Forgive me, Jesus, for allowing feelings of rejection and hurt to penetrate my heart. I repent of not standing on Your Word of truth concerning my life. Lord, cleanse me of any offense I carry in my heart. I forgive all those who have hurt me by rejecting me. I bless them and take on who I am in Your eyes right now, Lord. I am a Child of God. I am loved and highly favored. In Christ, I am the head and not the tail. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
