God Almighty, Creator of the universe, chase away the shadows that haunt my soul. Remove the arrows that have lodged in my heart because of condemnation shot at me from the enemy. Help me let go of the past mistakes that fuel the accusations which condemn me. For You have covered my iniquity, Jesus. You have set me free. In Christ, I have gained new life. The old is gone and the new has come. Deafen my ears, Lord, to the vile thoughts that plague my heart as I come to You for the cleansing of confession. May Your voice of forgiveness be the only one that I hear. May Your sweet words of redemption lift me from the miry pit and set my feet upon the rock. Help me to view circumstances from heaven’s perspective. Help me to set my gaze toward the horizon of eternity, not looking back at the territory of affliction which I have passed through by the power of Your grace. Empower me to live in freedom as You remove the fears that bind me. Under the Word of Galatians 5:1 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
For freedom Christ has set us free;
stand firm therefore,
and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1, ESV
