Heavenly Father, Thank you for revealing to me that I am imprisoning myself by not seeing the value and worth in your creation of me.
Forgive me, Lord, for living in such a way that caused me to place more importance on the opinion of others and myself.
I have doubted my ability and held myself back from being the person you desire me to be.
I am under the bondage of this doubt and pray that you would release me and give me victory over it.
It has robbed me of peace and joy in my life and has prevented me from living life to the fullest as a child of yours.
Help me to have compassion towards myself and to see that what I perceive as weaknesses, are, in fact, blessings.
May I use those blessings to help others who may also be held down by the same untruth that I have been under.
Lord, help me to see myself through your eyes and to see the beauty and person as a whole that you have created. You don’t make mistakes, Lord.
Please help me to value myself over anything of this world, whether it be what others think, or earthly possessions.
I don’t want to live up to what I think people expect of me; I want to live up to what you desire me to be.
Give me the strength to overcome and to see that I am valued. Help me to accept who I am and to have confidence in my identity through you.
I pray these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
