A Prayer to believe and speak truth

 


Lord Jesus,

Why do I do things I don't want to do?

Why can't I stop myself?

I am giving power to the enemy.

Lord, forgive me!

I have been letting the devil bind me and enslave me

by speaking lies to me

about my self-worth,

identity,

value,

destiny,

worthiness.

All he speaks are lies.

You speak the truth over me.

You say I am

loved,

saved,

worthy,

beautiful,

belonging.

I am your child,

your bride,

your object of rescue.

Thank you, Jesus.

You are always good,

always safe,

always loving,

always protecting,

always using

everything around me

and me, when I let you.

Thank you!

I will believe and speak these words of truth over myself,

and I will change my thoughts and behaviors.

You alone are worthy of my worship 

and my obedience.

You have my heart and my life.

In your holy name,

Amen.


15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.
