Prayer, Plain and Simple

…The devil… was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44)

We all have voices in our heads, and often these voices are echoing lies that we believe and incorporate into our lives. Lies often become embedded into our minds through trauma, things that have happened that should not have happened. They worm their way into our minds and personalities and become a part of us; but with the Truth, coupled with the blood of Jesus, we can reject and conquer each lie we have accepted into our identity.

We are diving deep into the negative emotions that hold us back from our destinies. Today we will pray about rejection. The devil tries–and often succeeds–in shoving lies down our throats that tell us we are not good enough, we are not accepted, and we are not wanted.

God has the antidote for rejection: it is adoption.

When we encounter the love of our Father and receive His love into our hearts through faith, we can uproot the lies that have deposited rejection into our souls.

Jesus paid the ultimate price so we could be delivered from rejection. Just as He raised the dead, restored withered hands, and strengthened lame legs, He is able and willing to deliver you from the pain of rejection. Our sin killed Him, so we can live as children of God. Pray this plain and simple prayer today…

Father,

I thank You that through Jesus You have made a way for me to be free from rejection and to learn to live as Your child. Because of the price You paid for me and the promises you have made in Your Word, I speak these declarations in faith. I believe that Your Word is at work in me as I agree with You now.

I believe and declare that I am no longer rejected and cast aside, but I am a child of the living God with all the rights and privileges of one who is loved with an everlasting love!

I believe and declare that God’s spirit is confirming my true identity–a child of the living God, and as His child I have the privilege of expecting to receive His inheritance. I receive an abundant life, full of joy and victory through every trial I face, for I face each challenge with the King, my Father, at my side giving me wisdom, confidence, and everything I need to live as a victor not a victim.

I believe and declare that I have been set free to experience what is truly mine: I have a place at the table of the King! I am not an outcast, but a true child of Papa God. I am not a slave! I am a child! I have an inheritance from Him both here on this earth – that of His divine presence and wisdom and love in my life, along with all the Fruit of the Holy Spirit – and beyond this world I have an even greater inheritance–that of life with my Father for eternity!

I believe and declare that I will not be tormented and ruled by rejection any longer, for I have been set free from bondage through the love of my Father God, the redeeming power of Jesus Christ, and the constant presence of the Holy Spirit in my life.

I am a child of God! I belong at His table! I belong in His family! I belong!

In Jesus’ Name Amen

For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26)

God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what’s coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance!  (Romans 8:16 The Message Bible)

Thus we have been set free to experience our rightful heritage. You can tell for sure that you are now fully adopted as his own children because God sent the Spirit of his Son into our lives crying out, “Papa! Father!” Doesn’t that privilege of intimate conversation with God make it plain that you are not a slave, but a child? And if you are a child, you’re also an heir, with complete access to the inheritance. (Galatians 4:5-7 The Message Bible)

Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift-giving by the hand of his beloved Son. (Ephesians 1:4-6)
