Free me from:

 

Control

 

Heavenly Father,

Please free me from the chains of control. Help me to know your plans prevail and will work for my good. Help me to know I cannot control people, situations, or outcomes.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

 

We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.

 

Romans 8:28

 

Co-dependency

 

Heavenly Father,

Please free me from the bondage of co-dependency. Help me to strive to please You and not the people of the world.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

 

For am I now trying to persuade people, or God? Or am I striving to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.

 

Galatians 1:10

 

Fear

 

Heavenly Father,

Please free me from the shackles of fear. Help me to know Your peace that transcends all fear. Calm my troubled heart.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

 

Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Don’t let your heart be troubled or fearful.

 

John 14:27

 

Worry

 

Heavenly Father,

Please free me from the bondage of worry. Help me to know Your peace that transcends all worry. Guard my heart and my mind today.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

 

Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

 

Philippians 4:6-7

 

 

 

Anger

 

Heavenly Father,

Please free me from the stronghold of anger. Help me to be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

 

My dear brothers and sisters, understand this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger, for human anger does not accomplish God’s righteousness.

 

James 1:19-20

 

Addiction

 

Heavenly Father,

Your Word promises that You will not tempt me more than I can bear. Help free me from the shackles of my addiction. Provide a way of escape from any idols that in the way of my relationship with You.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

 

No temptation has come upon you except what is common to humanity. But God is faithful; he will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation he will also provide a way out so that you may be able to bear it.

 

1 Corinthians 10:13

 

 

 

Help me to:

 

Love others

 

Heavenly Father,

I praise You for showing Your unconditional love to me. Please help me to love others well, even my enemies. Show me who they are through your eyes.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

 

But love your enemies, do what is good, and lend, expecting nothing in return. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High. For he is gracious to the ungrateful and evil.

 

Luke 6:35

 

Take care of myself

 

Heavenly Father,

Your Word promises rest in Christ. Father, I am coming to You so I may know rest. I am tired and weary and need Your rest. Take my burdens from me.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

 

Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take up my yoke and learn from me, because I am lowly and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

 

Matthew 11:28-30

 

Seek God

 

Heavenly Father,

Help me to seek You in all situations. Your Word promises that if I see, I will find. Show me the way.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

 

Ask, and it will be given to you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you.

 

Matthew 7:7

 

Forgive

 

Heavenly Father,

I praise You for forgiving me through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. Please help me to forgive others as You have forgiven me. Give me a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

 

Therefore, as God’s chosen ones, holy and dearly loved, put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another if anyone has a grievance against another. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you are also to forgive.
