Pattern prayer for Identity Issues
Lord, you cared enough about me to choose me as your child. I affirm that your love for me is unconditional and unchanging. My own thoughts and feelings are deceptive. I reject the lie of rejection that demeans my personal value and robs me of the joy of my inheritance in your kingdom. I affirm that your plans for my life are for fulfillment and fruitfulness. I speak to the mountains of self-doubt, fear of other people, and inferiority, and receive Your power over my mind and emotions.
Father, I take refuge in you alone and submit my struggle to you. I resist the accusations of Satan that I don’t matter to you and that I don’t have a place in your plan. Draw near to me. Heal my wounded heart, speak truth to my inner person, and free me through your love to be available for service to others.
