For Confidence in Your Relationships
Father, I thank You for the ever-developing intimate relationship I have with You. For You have been my hope, O Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth. From birth I have relied on You; You brought me forth from my mother’s womb. I will ever praise You.
You alone are the Source of my confidence, faith, hope, love, peace, and forgiveness. Also, I thank You for my family, church family, and friends who are here to help me develop emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. I am a friend to all who fear You, to all who follow Your precepts.
Spiritually alive, we have access to everything Your Spirit is doing, and we can’t be judged by unspiritual critics. Isaiah’s question, “Is there anyone around who knows God’s Spirit, anyone who knows what He is doing?” has been answered: Christ knows, and we have Christ’s Spirit.
Your Word communicates ideas, gives me understanding about who I am and who I am not. It is alive, dividing asunder my spirit and soul, discerning what is within me, exposing the unhealed emotional wounds and unmet needs. I submit to You, my Lord and my God, and allow Your Word to shape my life so that I may identify and settle the unresolved issues that have driven me to form unhealthy relationships in the past. I forget those things that are behind me and reach forth unto those things that are before me.
Jesus, I thank You for meeting my every need, and because I am complete in You, I don’t look to another human being to bring me fulfillment. I resist the temptation to take responsibility for the behavior of others, and I assume responsibility for my own actions. You have made me glad, and I do not look to others to make me happy.
Lord, You are my confidence, and You will keep my foot from being snared. You will never leave me without support. I am confident in my relationships because You are my Lord and Master; I am a partaker of Your divine nature. You have given me all things that pertain unto life and godliness. I am a friend who loves at all times, and I will be there as a brother/sister to others in times of adversity.
In my relationships I encourage appropriate love, and my friends and I help one another out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do. We admit our faults to one another and pray for each other so that we may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous man has great power and wonderful results.
My relationships are founded on love from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith in the name of Jesus. Amen.
