“Dear Heavenly Father,
I want to thank you for my life. I am so broken right now. I need so much help and healing, and I have tried to get over the things that have happened to me, but I just cannot seem to get past my past.
I know I need to face it, and deal with it. For so long, I have buried the pain because it just hurt too much to face it. But, I realize that this is the very thing that is preventing me from healing completely.
I feel such shame for my past. I am giving that to you. I know you love me the way that I am. I am sorry that it is hard for me to do the same. Although I know in my head, that what happened to me was not my fault, I cannot seem to forgive myself for it. Can you help me to drop my guilt? Can you help me to stop being angry at myself for “letting” this thing happen to me?
In the name of Jesus, I bind the demonic spirit of lust, anger, rage, self-hatred, self-mutilation, hiding, shame, guilt, condemnation, fear, anxiety, mistrust, sexual abuse, stunt of developmental mental growth to the spirit of balak.
I accept the love of God. I need it and I receive it. I ask that the Lord cover me with so much love that I will be able to see myself with His eyes and learn to love myself again. The Lord created me for a reason, and I will find it and I will live with purpose and passion again.
What satan meant for evil, God will use for good in my life. Through these horrible experiences, I will learn to have empathy for others, see the same pain in them, and be able to lead them to the ultimate healer and restorer—Jesus Christ.
Lord, give me the grace to be the person that will be able to take these scars and make them a shining victory over the very one who meant to destroy me from them.
As I take each day one day at a time, please bring people in my life that I can trust. Help me to love again. Help me to see the beauty in life and not focus on the things that used to bring me down.
Thank you for my life. I want to give it back to you, as you allowed me to live through this experience, and you are also allowing me to grow through this experience. I know my life will make a difference in others. I know my life will be better than I ever dreamed possible, because with you, all things are possible. My life is in your hands, Lord.
In Jesus’ precious name, I praise you, I thank you for all that you are and all that you are making me to be, Amen.”
