Set Me Free
John 8:36 (ESV)
“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”
Heavenly Father You are my King. To You alone do I pledge my allegiance. I long to be be part of the the Kingdom You have established through Jesus and live the free life you created me to live. My desire is to be Your child of freedom.
Deliver me Lord Jesus! I am not strong enough to break free from the chains and the bars which enslave me. My knowledge, self-discipline, and my strength have all failed me. I am so tired of living in bondage. It is time for me to live free!
Holy Spirit bring to mind those areas of my life which hold me in bondage. Give me the strength to surrender those areas to Jesus and heal the deep wounds that the chains of my slavery have caused on my heart. Show me a vision of what it means to live a free life.
I lay at the foot of the cross everything which entangles me. I surrender my sin (be specific). I surrender my addictions. I surrender my fears and my doubts. I renounce the allegiance I have formed with the kingdom of darkness. I declare that I belong to Jesus and his Kingdom. For he has made me free!
