Rejection is one of the demons that make it hard for us to move to the next level in our lives. Satan knows what consumes us, what controls us.
- Everyone wants to belong.
- Everyone wants to be liked.
- Yes, everyone wants to be included.
Therefore, the more consumed we are with rejection, the more the enemy can control our emotions, our thinking and our actions. It’s good to acknowledge the hurt, but don’t see it as a permanent hindrance.
Move on from the source of the rejection. Don’t let it shut you down. It’s time to overcome. Replace the negative thoughts that will hinder you. Replace them with praises to God, who will deliver you.
Take every rejection as a re-direction which will help refine you. Now, instead of growing weary from being rejected, trust in the Lord and take it as His way of telling us “WRONG CHOICE!!!”. Most importantly, ask for strength to keep moving on.
Prayer When Feeling Rejected
Heavenly Father, I thank you for you are a God of mercy and compassion and there is none like you.
I lift up my heart and voice in prayer to you. You have experienced rejection, anxiety, persecution, loneliness and you understand all I am going through. I thank you for the closed doors. I thank you for not allowing me to settle for less.
Lord, I understand now that each time a door closes and each time I am told NO, it is simply your way of protecting me against that which is not good for me. Thanks for making me an overcomer!

Empowered To Reject Rejection
Oh Lord, You have not given me a spirit of timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. Empower me to stand against the spirit of rejection that seeks to diminish me. Let me stand firm in Your love, declaring that I am more than a conqueror through Christ who loves me.
Equip me, oh Lord, with Your armor, that I may stand against the wiles of the enemy. Whenever feelings of rejection creep in, let me counter them with the knowledge of my identity in You.

Overcoming Those Feelings Of Depression
Father, there are times when I feel frustrated and depression starts creeping in. Give me peace and strength Lord, to press on and not complain. Grant me wisdom needed to understand at all times that every disappointment is a blessing in disguise.
Gift me, O Lord, with the discernment to perceive the silver linings within every cloud of disappointment. Remind me that the trials I endure are not just burdens to bear, but catalysts that spark growth and transformation within my spirit.
Through Your infinite wisdom, help me comprehend that every challenge I face is an opportunity for Your divine intervention—a testament of Your boundless love and Your grand plan for me. May I learn to see every disappointment as an unveiling of blessings yet to come, a prelude to the victories that Your divine grace holds in store for me.

Breaking The Spirit Of Rejection
In the name of Jesus, I break that spirit of rejection. I break and destroy completely the stranglehold of the spirit of rejection. With the Lord Jesus beside me, I will fight the battle of good faith. “Blessed be the Lord my strength, who prepares my hands for war, and my fingers to fight.”
Praise be to you lord who has not rejected my prayers and withheld your love from me. I know You love me. You are for me, and I absolutely can trust You with all of my heart. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
