Loving Yourself

Father, we thank you for the renewed grace that you give us each and every day.  Thank you Father that you are going before us to make our crooked paths straight.  We thank you for the unconditional love that you always show us.  We thank you that you are our Advocate and that you go before us.  Lord, we come before you needing help to in accepting ourselves just the way we are without judgement or criticism.  Help us to embrace our weaknesses, and the uniqueness that makes us who we are.  Lord, your word says that we are altogether beautiful and there is no flaw in us (Song of Solomon 4:7).  Help us to love ourselves just as we are. Help us to see ourselves the way that you see us as your masterpiece created new in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:10).  For we were fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14).

Help us to embrace our personality, our uniqueness and our body just the way it is, with all its beauty and perfection.  With the power of our self-love, let us enjoy what we see every time we look in the mirror.  Increase the love we have for ourselves and let it be so strong that we never again try to sabotage our happiness, freedom or the future that you have planned for us.  God, let the power of your love be so strong in us that it removes all the lies we believed that told us we weren’t good enough, strong enough, intelligent enough, or that we wouldn’t make it. Let the power of your love flow so strongly in us that we no longer need to live our lives according to other people’s opinions or expectations.

With the love you have placed in us to love ourselves, let us no longer be afraid to face responsibility in our life or face any problems and resolve them as they arise. For whatever we want to accomplish, let us have the fearlessness and tenacity to go after it.  Give us daily the wisdom we need to keep a healthy state of mind, body and spirit.  Let us never compromise our integrity or the authenticity of what makes us who we are.  Help us to never be in fear of anything or anyone but you, Father.  Lord we need daily reminders of your love for us.

Heal us on the inside from any negative things we believe about ourselves and clean our mind from any negative words we tell ourselves.  By your grace let any internal conflict be resolved right now in Jesus Name. Strengthen our will to forgive ourselves in this moment.  Starting right now, let every action, thought, and words spoken be based on love.  Help us to love ourselves as you love us.  Help us to walk in true obedience of your word, your ways and your will so that the purpose you created us for would be manifested in our lives.  Open our ears to hear, our eyes to see, our heart to love more like yours.  Let all our senses be more heightened to the awareness of your presence.  Clean our mind of emotional poison and self-judgments so that we can live in complete peace and love.

With our increased self love for ourselves let it be the catalyst that helps to transform the relationship we have with ourselves.  No longer pretending to be someone or something that we are not just to  get people to accept us.   No longer feeling like we need everyone to affirm us.  Let us be joyful to share our time with loved ones and to forgive them for any wrong they have done to us.   Help us to love ourselves so much that we choose to forgive anyone who has hurt us.  Help us  to be free of any conflict with others.  Give us the courage to love unconditionally so that it changes our relationships in the most positive and loving way.  Help us to accept others just the way they are and without judgment.

Help us to enjoy our life, to enjoy our relationships, to grow and learn in the exploration of life.   Help us to be courageous to take necessary risk to reach our destiny and to no longer live in fear of giving or receiving love.  Lord, help us to become a master at self love so that we may be more equipped to share the light of Jesus with the world by being a blessing to all those we come into contact with on a daily basis.

We Pray All These Things in Your Son Jesus Name, Amen!!!
