“Dear Heavenly Father,
I come to you in total humility. I have been trying to clean up my life and my house. It seems the harder I try, the worse things get for me.
For some reason I cannot stop myself from holding onto anything and everything. I cannot let go of my physical possessions and this greediness is stopping me from functioning properly.
I realize that it is selfish to be like this. I give my selfishness to you. I seem to be afraid that you will not provide all my needs like you have said in your word. By mistrusting you, I am hurting you and myself at the same time. Lord, help build my trust in you.
I give my fear of lack, my poverty mentality, my fear of letting others get close to me to you. You said you would provide all my needs. You will provide all my physical needs, mental needs and emotional needs so that I can live a good life.
The physical walls that I have created by collecting all this unnecessary stuff are just a reflection of my emotional walls. I don’t trust people, because it seems they have always been the source of disappointment and pain for me. Right now, I am choosing to let go of the pain I have been holding from my past hurts. I am asking you to heal me completely. I let go of my unrealistic expectations of others.
I bind the spirit of depression, isolation, greed, lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, bitterness, resentment, hatred, anger, self-destruction and selfishness to the spirit of balak and I send them back to the pit they came from.
Lord, cover me with your love. Help me to see how much you love me. I have been trying to compensate for the lack of love in my life by selfishly loving myself. But, it is not a good love. This kind of love has brought me the most pain. Lord, heal me. Shower me with an overflow of your love and allow me to have the humility to receive it.
Today I will soak in your love. I chose today to obey you.
Lead me around my house and show me the items that I could bless others with. Give me a heart that is excited to share my things with other people. As the clutter starts to clear, expose the sins that got me here to begin with. I know my heart and mind will be clear and open when I give these sins to you.
Lord, thank you for blessing me with your love. Anoint my house with your presence as I chose to serve you by serving and providing for others. In Jesus’ precious name, thank you, Lord. Amen.”
