Oh, Great Lamb of God, I worship You as You sit high upon the throne of grace and mercy. Thank You, Lord, for all You have done for me. I give thanks for all the marvelous blessings You continually shower me with.
Lord, You know my daily struggles. You alone know what I am going through. I pray that you open my mind to acknowledge my own identity, and not be swayed by the negative influences of others. Lord, I will become all that you intended me to be.
John 15:5 I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit. Apart from me, you can do nothing.
John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
Father, I feel so confused. I am not sure as to who I am, or who You want me to be, and where You are taking me.
But You hold me in the palm of Your hands, and You know the plans You have for me. Lord, You make all things work together for my good.
I trust You, take control, guide my life, touch my heart, show me Your great plans for me. Lay it all out before me,
Oh God of my salvation, so that I would know what it is You want me to do and who I am destined to become.
Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Having my own identity
Saviour, may I not copy the identity of others, but rather help me to be an original, a leader. Not a follower of the people of this world, but a faithful follower of You and all You created me to be.
Let the words of others fall upon a deaf ear when they try to convince me of who they think I am. Let no words against me wound me, for I am much more valuable and precious than that.
Because I am loved by You, the creator of the universe and it is an undying, never-ending, never-failing kind of love. Allow me to be confident wherever I go, in knowing who I am in You.
2 Corinthians 1:21-22 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
I am a child of the king
Remind me that I am Your child and I am of royalty and nothing and no one can prove differently. Set my paths straight so that it leads to You.
I desire to thirst for You alone, for none can compare to Your glory. Let not the world change me, make my heart firm and strong in You and Your word.
Help me to not get caught up in worldly desires but be focused and engrossed in You. I lay my life before You Oh God. Shape me and mold me into who I am destined to become. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen!
John 1:12 He gave the right and the power to become children of God to those who received Him. He gave this to those who put their trust in His name.
1 Corinthians 6:17 But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
